Are you ready to make this awesome cocktail for your National Michelada Day celebration? Head to your local Walmart. Clamato is easy to find in the juice aisle. I love to shop at Walmart. Let’s be honest, their prices are just so much better than any other store. There I said it. Their prices, for the same brands, are almost always lower. Significantly lower. (And for gluten free products, that equals a HUGE savings!!)
I found ALL of the ingredients to make these gooey melty cheese fried mozzarella sticks at my Walmart too! (Just head to their deli section for a bag of cheese sticks and eggs.) Add cheese sticks, eggs, bread crumbs, oil, and dried basil to your shopping cart!!

Here are the ingredients you will need to make this party favorite appetizer.
Dip the cheese stick first in gluten free flour, then egg, then gluten free bread crumbs. I actually dipped in flour, egg, flour, egg, then the bread crumbs. Double dipping helps ensure no melty cheese leaks out!
Fry the cheese sticks in hot oil. I used avocado oil because it handles high heat temperatures really well. I fried these outside since our grill has a separate burner.
Go ahead and dip these crispy cheese sticks it into your michelada!
How to make gluten free mozzarella sticks:
Quick and easy fried gluten free mozzarella stick recipe
Heat the avocado oil up in a cast iron skillet on medium heat.
While the oil is heating, cut cheese sticks in half.
Roll the sticks in the flour. Make sure the ends and all edges are coated.
Dip into the egg mixture. Repeat this one more time. Double dipping will prevent cheese from leaking out.
After the final dip in the egg, roll in the bread crumbs and set aside on a plate.
Fry each cheese stick, turning quickly so they don't burn.
Eat hot with a michelada.
How to make micheladas
Wildly popular micheladas...with Clamato and beer.
- 12 ounces Clamato
- 12 ounces gluten free beer
- 2 tablespoons lime juice
- 1/2 teaspoon worcestershire sauce
- 1/4 teaspoon tamari
- 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
- 1/8 teaspoon ginger
- 1 tablespoon fresh dill
- 1 teaspoon hot sauce
Mix all ingredients in a large pitcher and mix well.
Serve over ice.
Salt the rim for extra taste.
*Note, I dipped the rim of the glasses in Sriracha Salt. You can easily make your own by adding a few drops of sriracha to course sea salt. Allow to dry, or bake on very low heat (200 degrees) for a few minutes. Keep an eye on it so the salt doesn’t melt.
