Whip the egg in a small bowl. Dip the cheese sticks in the egg, then roll them in the pork skin mixture, making sure they're evenly coated. Place coated sticks in the freezer for 1 hour. (30 minutes minimum).
Heat about 2 inches of oil in a deep skillet until very hot.
Deep fry the sticks until the coating is golden brown.
