"These yummy snacks went over great at my family's fondue party. I made a pizza/marinara fondue to dip these sticks and we had a fondue pot with oil, so guest could fry their own cheese sticks. I just pre-wrapped the cheese sticks in the egg roll wrappers and everyone pierced the sticks with fondue forks and fried them at their leisure. These were the first thing to disappear off the table. My only issue was that the cheese got hard again quickly after frying. They still tasted great and nobody complained about this. Everyone thought it was a creative way to do fondue. These were easy and fun and I will make again."

"OMG, where have these been all my life?! I just made a batch for my husband and myself for a quick Saturday lunch. They took less time to prepare than a box of mac and cheese! Less cleanup too--just the small skillet I fried them in. I'm thinking to make appetizers for a group, you could cut the cheese sticks in half--or even thirds, as I saw one reviewer mentioned--and wrap them in wonton wrappers. I will say that next time, I think I need to cool down the oil a bit--I noticed the cooking instructions on the package of wrappers says 350? for the oil, and fry egg rolls for 2 to 3 minutes instead of 375? for 30 to 60 seconds. My cheese was warm, but not terribly gooey, but any longer at that temp and the wrappers would have burned. Still yummy though!"

"these were excellent and very easy to make but I think they should be named something different. I remembered the name and when I was at the grocery store I bought wonton wrappers instead of eggroll wrappers. Yes, I had read the recipe but remembered the name more, lol. I did use the wonton wrappers but had to cut the string cheese into thirds and it took a bit more time but still tasted great. I'll definitely make them again but will use eggroll wrappers."

I've also baked these too, to make them healthier. I spray a cookie sheet with non stick cooking spray and roll them around a little bit. They bake up nicely, but they are, of course, much tastier when fried. Great recipe!"

"I make this terrific and easy appetizer for every holiday. Kids & adults love them. I mince garlic in a press and add a tiny bit (3 grains) to each wrapper-a little goes a long way for flavor. I also add a single piece of pre-sliced pepperoni cut in half. Once they are wrapped, they can be stored in the refrigerator in a ziplock bag until you are ready to fry them. Perfect for hectic parties. They fry up fast..almost as fast as people eat them!! Try any of the cheese sticks, jalapeño works great."

Just finished eating these and I was thrilled with the results.
I used Stop & Shop Mozzarella Sticks and as I was rolling them, I added a few shakes of McCormick's Basil & Garlic Seasoning.
They took about 2 minutes to fry to perfection, but there was no leaking of cheese and the inside texture was great.
I can't wait to try this with other flavors of cheese sticks."

Also they should bake at a higher temp, maybe 450* so they crisp up faster with less chance of the cheese running all over. Will try again!"

Reviewed Feb. 5, 2012

"Okay - so first, they are a really large size, I think I would cut everything in half if I did it again. Second, I tried them baked per the alternate instructions. 350F turning occasionally until browned. They were weird. The cheese melted great, but the taste of the wrappers was just off. It was a bit like uncooked dry pasta in some places and more like doughy fresh pasta in others. I was trying to save on the calories, but it was just a waste of ingrediants. Also, as other posters mentioned, this was rather bland and using a flavorful dipping sauce still didn't help. I think next time I will brush with garlic/olive oil and then sprinkle with spices inside and out. It is fun looking and definitely quick, but as is - baking is definitely not a do over. I might try one just as it's supposed to be made (fried) to see if that works out better. Otherwise, it seems like all the extra work to make them taste like the original breaded style undoes the short cut of making them this way at all. Thank you for the recipe though!"

"Here are some baking instructions that I tried. My oven runs kinda hot, so even tho I used 350 you might want to use 400 if your oven is more 'normal.' Spray with Pam or something so they aren't brick hard, and cook for about 10 min then flip and go another 10 min or so. Keep on eye on them, everyone's oven is different!

Along with the cheese I used deli sliced turkey, but you could use pepperoni or chicken or anything!
Try using different dips too, I used ceasar dressing mixed with parmesan and pepper!
Egg-washing and dipping in bread crumbs sounds yummy too, I'll try that next time!"

Both are excellent! I use as little oil as possible to fry these in, just enough to cover the pan bottom by maybe a 1/4-inch. Usually I serve them up immediately; I fried up 75 last night for a party this weekend and flash-froze the sticks. I plan to reheat in a HOT oven and see how well these do.
