alternative mozzarella sticks


i love traditional mozzarella sticks.  so, when i found this recipe for mozzarella sticks that are made with egg roll wrappers, i couldn't wait to try it out.  admittedly, these are not the healthiest snack . . . but they are a nice treat once in a while, and they are so very easy to make!

{roll each mozzarella stick starting from the corner of the egg roll wrapper}

{tuck in the sides of the egg roll wrapper and keep rolling}

{seal the ends of the egg roll wrappers with a dab of water}

{fry each side in vegetable oil for about 60 seconds, or until brown}

{place on a paper towel to absorb the residual oil}

{serve with marinara sauce for dipping, and enjoy!}

So how were the mozzarella sticks?
Were they as tasty as the ones coated with Italian bread crumbs?
Since the wrappers seem more sturdy and won't leak melted cheese, I wonder if you can put a little sauce inside the wrapper then cook.

mama,

they were good, but not nearly as good as yours with italian bread crumbs.

that sounds like a good idea to put sauce inside of the wrapper! we will have to try that!
