Wonton Mozzarella Sticks

Wonton Mozzarella Sticks

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

INGREDIENTS
• 6 wonton wrappers
• 6 string cheese sticks
• 1 jar marinara sauce
• 1 eggs
• 3 cups canola oil (optional)

DIRECTIONS
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!

 

 

 

Buffalo Chicken Pickle Bites

Buffalo Chicken Pickle Bites

We have gotten quite creative around here when it comes to meals if you haven't noticed. Since switching from the Courtyard Marriott to the Residence Inn Marriott and finally having a kitchen, we are lucky enough to be within walking distance (not even kidding) of a Sam's Club and a Walmart! Not that it really matters since have 2 cars, but it's pretty nice that we don't have to venture out too far in this 5 degree weather.

Anyways, we have a kitchen - a very small kitchen - with a stovetop, fridge and microwave, but no oven so we are a little limited in that regard but at least we can cook! Unfortunately, most our meal times are quick and sporadic because we work opposite hours (I work 8am - 5pm and Chance works 6pm - 3am) so we don't cook big meals since we generally are each cookin for one or we end up eating snacks because it's much easier. That said, we are big fans of getting our protein and staying healthy so Chance is usually making interesting snack combinations and I wanted to share my favorite one that he has been making for me this week: Buffalo Chicken Pickle Bites!

It may sound like an odd combination, but you like saltier snacks and pickles then this is definitely for you! It is super simple to make and you can use any crackers and mix uo the deli meat if you wish. Scroll down for the recipe!

INGREDIENTS
• 1 Package of Buffalo Chicken deli meat (we get ours from Sam's Club)
• 1 large whole pickle, sliced in half
Crunchmaster Multi-Grain Crackers

DIRECTIONS
1. Slice your deli meat into small pieces to fit on top of the crackers. Slice your whole pickle into 2 halves and then divide each half into half and create small pickle chunks.

2. Lay your crackers onto a plate and top with the deli meat followed by a pickle. You can also add your favorite hot sauce or seasoning, such as Slap Ya Mamma or Pica de Gallo Limon, for extra flavor!
