Extended weekends bring lots of great things, like more free time, good friends and good food, including these delicious homemade wonton mozzarella sticks. This is an old recipe I created a few years back that I decided to resurface for you guys because it's really easy to make and great for kids! I don't typically like fried mozzarella sticks, so this is an alternative to the classic snack using wonton wrappers. Scroll down for the full recipe and enjoy!
WONTON MOZZARELLA STICKS
• 6 wonton wrappers
• 6 string cheese sticks
• 1 jar marinara sauce
• 1 eggs
• 3 cups canola oil (optional)
Preheat oven to 400F. Beat egg in a small dish for egg wash. Place one string cheese stick as close to the edge of the wonton wrapper as you can and brush with egg wash. Fold the sides in, and roll up as tightly as possible finishing with a brush of egg wash (see gif above). Repeat until you made each wonton mozzarella stick and place on a baking sheet. Bake for 5 minutes to get the cheese melted.
Heat the canola oil in a skillet at about 325F. Add each mozzarella stick to the skillet and cook until golden brown and crispy (about 30-60 seconds on each side). Serve immediately with marinara sauce!
