How to Make Easy Peasy Mozzarella Appetizers

Step-by-Step

  • 1PREP/PREPARE
  • 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.
  • 8Fold up the bottom.
  • 9Tuck in the sides.
  • 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.
  • 16PLATE/PRESENT
  • 17Serve while still warm with your favorite dipping sauce. Enjoy.
  • 18Keep the faith, and keep cooking.
