homemade mozzarella sticks

The hubby and I are both originally from Wisconsin, and though we like cheese, that's not the reason for this connection. He is from Milwaukee and in Milwaukee there is a restaurant known for their BBQ and that restaurant is Saz's. Well, hubby and I love the restaurant for other reasons as well, for their Mozzarella Sticks. They are just like these, which I found on Our Sweet Life, mozzarella enrobed in wonton wrappers.

Quick, easy and so delicious. I even think you could bake them if you didn't want to fry them, I'd say 400* would work just great.

Homemade Mozzarella Sticks

Wrap a string cheese in an egg roll wrapper

Lay one string cheese or strip of block mozzarella on one egg roll wrapper diagonally so the cheese starts at one corner and ends at the opposite. Roll up like a burrito and seal with water or egg.

Fry in a frying pan using oil (vegetable or olive oil heated to about 350) until golden.


  1. I love how simple to make, yet delicious your cheese sticks look. I guess baking would work, but deep frying is more fun!

  2. Wow! This looks so easy. And so much better than a batter fried. Must Try!!!

  3. Yum! Fried cheese: it doesn't get any tastier than that :).
