  • 1
    15 Egg Roll Wrappers
    Water for brushing
    1 pound Low-Moisture Mozzarella Cheese (cut into 1/2-inch by 4-inch logs)
    Salt and Pepper
    Lay the egg roll wrappers in front of you like a diamond. Brush the surface lightly with water. Lay a piece of cheese on the lower third of the diamond. Season lightly with salt and pepper. Roll the cheese in the wrapper half-way then fold in the corners of the wrapper like a burrito. Continue rolling and press to seal the edges.
  • 2
    Olive Oil
    Place a non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add about 1/8-inch of oil to the pan, or just enough to coat. Once the oil shimmers, place several mozzarella sticks in the pan. Let cook 1 to 2 minutes per side, or until golden brown all around.
  • 3
    Marinara Sauce (for dipping)
    Parmesan (for grating)
    Remove from oil to a paper towel lined plate and season immediately with salt. Allow to cool slightly before serving. Plate with marinara sauce for dipping and top with grated parmesan.

    Helpful Tips:
    1.  Add a variety of spices for different flavored mozzarella sticks.
    2.  Any semi-hard cheese may be used in place of the mozzarella. 
    3. Cover the wonton wrappers and cheese with a damp paper towel to keep them moist while building the mozzarella sticks.
    4.  To keep mozzarella sticks warm during a party, place on a baking sheet in a low oven (200 degrees) until ready to serve.
    5. Let the sticks come to room temperature after cooking, and then freeze for a quick go-to party snack.
