You won't believe something this easy could taste so fantastic! Crunchy outside, gooey cheese inside, these mozzarella sticks are a treat all ages will love. Kids could help wrap them, too. —Shirley Warren, Thiensville, Wisconsin

Nutritional Facts

  1. Place a piece of string cheese near the bottom corner of one egg roll wrapper (keep remaining wrappers covered with a damp paper towel until ready to use). Fold bottom corner over cheese. Roll up halfway; fold sides toward center over cheese. Moisten remaining corner with water; roll up tightly to seal. Repeat with remaining wrappers and cheese.
  2. In an electric skillet, heat 1/2 in. of oil to 375°.
  3. Fry sticks, a few at a time, for 30-60 seconds on each side or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Serve with marinara sauce. Yield: 1 dozen.
Editor's Note: Be sure to get wrappers labeled egg roll wrappers and not spring roll wrappers. Egg roll wrappers are soft and bendable while in the package. Spring roll wrappers are usually thin, very firm and the instructions say to dip in water to soften before using.

"Ok. So I truly had no idea how to prepare the egg roll wrappers. I tried rolling the cheese in a wrapper right out of the package. It broke in pieces. Then I read the package directions and I dipped the entire lot into a bowl of water. Now they all gummed together. I tried pulling the wrappers apart and got chunks of wrapper that I rolled the cheese with. I deep fried as directed and all the cheese oozed out and the wrapper looked like it crystalized. No mozzarella sticks for us. Perhaps for novices like me, this recipe should announce that the wrappers need to be prepared first? Unless I totally didn't use the right product."

"These are the BOMB! Of course I changed them up the second time I made them and used shredded pepper jack cheese, a small amount of shredded cheddar cheese, and cream cheese mixed together. Added a 1/2 can of drained diced jalapenos and filled the egg roll wrappers. OMG, jalapeno popper in an egg roll! Very good. So many cheeses, so many possibilities!"

"These are good and so easy to make. I switch up the cheeses and our favorite is pepper jack cheese sticks. I've always used the sticks, not the string cheese. Also cut each cheese stick in thirds and use the smaller won ton wrappers for a bite size snack."

"My family loved these as a quick side/appetizer with dinner last night. I would like to try these again with pepper jack cheese string cheese."

"Wonton Wrappers and egg roll wrapper are not the same. The size is different, looks like in the pic, she used egg roll wrappers. The instructions were back and forth between the 2."

"Made these today to go along with our home made pizza and finger foods. Love these alot and I followed the recipe exactly. We also made homemade sauce for the pizza, so we used the sauce for these too."

"This way different, easy and fun to do with kids under supervision with the oil. Can't understand with so many outstanding reviews you would get a KSHREEL writing they were terrible. What a wet mop .....go make cookies or something you love."

"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."

"I have not made these yet, BUT, I bet they could be brushed with a little olive oil and baked instead of fried. Has anyone baked them?"

"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!"
