Served these up with the sauce from the Pizza Eggrolls and my kids thought I was a hero!

Fantastic recipe, as easy as it gets! Reading other comments, I can see where some might have problems, though. I take away a point because they're called "won ton," when won ton has nothing to do with the recipe. But I give the point back to offset the negative reviews from 1/2/17 where the reviewer obviously used spring roll wraps instead of egg roll wraps, and 2/15/14 where the reviewer isn't even reviewing the recipe, but another reviewer's suggestions!
Bottom line: this is a great, easy recipe that goes from prep to table in 20 minutes, and got rave reviews in my house. Use the right wraps and follow the recipe as written.

I made these for a Memorial Day appetizer - REALLY EASY and GOOD! They would make a better finger food if cut in half and maybe use wonton wrappers.

Looks easy enough.

Very simple to make. Just make sure the seal around the edges is good or the mozzarella will melt out. I also made some cheddar cheese sticks. My son and his friends love them. Will definitely be making these in the future.

Egg roll wrappers are usually found in the produce department.

There seems to be some confusion as to what kind of wrappers to buy and where to buy them. Most grocery stores will have them in the produce section. Both wonton (much smaller and for wonton dumplings) and egg roll wrappers.
An Asian market is a good source. No, Spring Roll Wrappers are not firm and do not need to be put into water to soften, unless you buy rice paper wrappers. Asian markets have frozen wrappers that are pliable and easy to use. They are thinner and In my opinion much better tasting for egg rolls and these cheese rolls.
A quick dessert? Roll up 1/2 of a banana sprinkled with cinnamon, fry and serve with whipped cream.

These sound delicious but i have been unable to find egg roll wrappers. What dept of the supermarket are they located. Would love to try in my air fryer.

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!
