How To Make easy peasy mozzarella appetizers

  • 1
  • 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.
