I didn't freeze the cheese beforehand, but having it chilled in the fridge worked fine. I mixed in my garlic powder, Italian seasoning, a little salt and some black pepper in the Italian bread crumbs. I double battered my chilled cheese and then put in my deep fryer at 350 degrees for about 45 seconds or so. Also, I cooked about 4 at a time to keep them from sticking to each other. When I first attempt to remove a cheese stick from the basket, it started to fall a bit limp, so before i gathered the others, I just let it sit for a few minutes before transferring them to our serving dish. Doing this allowed the cheese to cool just right and let it keep its form when handling, yet still be melty in the middle. I may try freezing cheese for about 30 minutes before i cook them next time to see what happens. Also, next time i will combine all dry ingredients to save a step. overall, nice and easy recipe and will definitely make this again.
