Easy Peasy Mozzarella Appetizers
mozzarella cut into thick sticks
dipping sauce, your choice
2Gather and prep all your ingredients.
3Chef’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.
4Chef’s Note: Cut the mozzarella into sticks 1/4 inch thick by 3 inches wide.
5Heat about a 1/4-inch of oil in a pan to 350f (175c).
6Place a stick of mozzarella on a wonton wrapper.
7Use a bit of water to dampen the two top sides of the wanton wrapper.
10Roll into a tight bundle.
11Repeat for the other mozzarella sticks.
12Add them to the hot oil.
13Allow them to cook for about 1 minute per side.
14Chef’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.
15Chef’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.
17Serve while still warm with your favorite dipping sauce. Enjoy.
18Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
