It’s weird what you end up making from leftovers in the fridge. About two weeks ago, I posted about my special fried rice with longganisa and peas. The other day, I made cheese sticks from leftover goat cheese.
Have you ever had these? Very easy to make. Obviously, you need cheese — I really enjoyed the flavor of the goat cheese, but parmesan, asiago or peccorino romano would work, too — lumpia wrapper (the thinner the better) and cooking oil for frying.
Cut the wrappers in half, cross-wise, so you get triangles. The cheese needs to be sliced about a quarter of an inch wide and maybe 2 inches long. Place the cheese in the wrapper, fold the ends toward the middle so they overlap and roll. You can seal the ends with water. Heat the oil to medium-high. Fry until golden brown, which should take about 3-5 minutes.
You can store these in a sealed plastic bag in the freezer and just toss a few in the frying pan when you’re craving a crunch.
