This final season has just been absolutely crazy with too many jaw-dropping moments. I can barely sit still knowing that it’s the end today!

Wonton Mozzarella Sticks

With just 5 ingredients, you can make these mozzarella sticks in 10 minutes - perfect for game day!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 4 string cheese, halved
  • 8 wonton wrappers
  • 1/2 cup marinara sauce, homemade or store-bought

Instructions

  • Heat vegetable oil in a medium skillet to 325 degrees F.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together egg and 1 tablespoon water.
  • Working one at a time, brush wonton wrapper with egg wash; place string cheese in the center of each wrapper. Bring the bottom edge of the wrap tightly over the cheese, rolling from bottom to top until the top of the sheet is reached, being careful not to tear the wrapper. Repeat with remaining wrappers and string cheese.
  • Add string cheese to the skillet and cook until golden brown and crispy, about 1-2 minutes. Transfer to a paper towel-lined plate.
  • Serve immediately with marinara sauce, if desired.

      I have watched Breaking Bad over the Summer, and then to clear my mind from drugs and violence, I have started The West Wing series. Have been amazed at how contemporary and relative it is to our world today. We should have elected Jed Bartlett as president instead of Obama.

    No Stephanie I haven’t watched it either LOL

    These look great – but I’m guessing it should be four string cheese, halved?

    Gotta pick up some wonton skins . . . yum!

    I haven’t gotten into breaking bad (yet) but it’s next on our to-watch list! I foresee myself stress eating quite a few of these during those episodes!

    • Chung-Ah says

      I hope you finish Breaking Bad soon – with all this hype, I feel like the ending is going to come out sooner or later!

    Silly question but when you put the egg wash on the wrappers, then the cheese, does the egg wash end up on the outside or inside of the finished product?

    I tried this recipe and my cheese melted into the skillet :( but they were still good. My sister suggested next time freezing the cheese strings before using them to make sure they don’t melt as fast in the skillet during cooking.

    • Chung-Ah says

      I recommend making sure there are no holes in the wonton wrappers – that can also cause the cheese to melt and out into the skillet. Hope that helps!
