So these puppies right here are so much easier to make than you can imagine, and sooooooo good! Who doesn’t love mozzarella sticks anyways?!?! We sure love them, and these are slightly healthier and just overall tastier because they will be made by you.
lets start with the ingredients,
- 8 string cheeses or about a 12 oz. block of cheese
- 24 wonton wrappers (find them in the refrigerated area of the produce section!)
- 1 egg white
- About 1-2 cups oil, for frying (I used STAR grapeseed oil)
- Sea Salt
- Grated Parmesan
- Marinara sauce- for dipping of course
The rest is pretty easy, just follow these simple steps and you are on your way to heaven.
Cut your string cheese into 3 equal pieces, or cut your block of cheese into 24 pieces that are about ½ an inch wide and 1½ inches long.
Place a wonton wrapper in front of you in the shape of a diamond. Use a pastry brush to brush egg white on the surface of the wrapper. Place string cheese in the center. Fold in the north and south diamond corners then take the eastern corner and roll it around the cheese until the whole thing is completely covered. Seal up the corners. If the seals don’t feel secure, brush with a little more egg white and press together. Repeat with remaining cheese and wrappers.
Heat fry oil in a deep saute pan to about 375 degrees. Carefully drop mozzarella sticks into the oil and fry until golden brown, about 1-2 minutes. Remove from oil and place on a plate. Sprinkle with sea salt and grated Parmesan. Serve HOT with warm marinara sauce for dipping. BOOM!!!
