wonton wrappers
peanut oil for frying
dipping sauce, your choice

Directions Step-By-Step

1
PREP/PREPARE
2
Gather and prep all your ingredients.
3
Chef’s Note: Wonton wrappers are the ideal size (3.5 inches square). However, in a pinch, you can cut large eggroll wrappers to the same size.
4
Chef’s Note: Cut the mozzarella into sticks 1/4 inch thick by 3 inches wide.
5
Heat about a 1/4-inch of oil in a pan to 350f (175c).
6
Place a stick of mozzarella on a wonton wrapper.
7
Use a bit of water to dampen the two top sides of the wanton wrapper.
8
Fold up the bottom.
9
Tuck in the sides.
10
Roll into a tight bundle.
11
Repeat for the other mozzarella sticks.
12
Add them to the hot oil.
13
Allow them to cook for about 1 minute per side.
14
Chef’s Tip: If you let them cook too long the cheese will expand and ooze out of the wrapper. I HATE it when that happens.
15
Chef’s Tip: If you are making several batches of these, preheat your oven to 200f (95c), and put them in there to keep warm until ready to serve.
16
PLATE/PRESENT
17
Serve while still warm with your favorite dipping sauce. Enjoy.
18
Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
