5-Minute Mozzarella Sticks

We indulged last night: I had some leftover wonton wrappers in the freezer from our buffalo chicken eggrolls, and bought a ton of cheese-sticks this weekend.These were calling my name. The best part? They were done within 5 minutes! simply wrap a cheese-stick up in a won-ton wrapper, heat it up in some oil on the stove and voila! We did try baking 2 of them to see how they came out, and while it wasn't as crispy and bubbling as the fried ones, they were still enjoyable!

Ingredients:
12 pieces string cheese
12 egg roll wrappers
Oil
Marinara or spaghetti sauce

Directions:
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.

Heat up enough oil to cover the bottom of a frying pan on medium heat.

Fry sticks, a few at a time, on all sides until they are nice and crispy.

Drain on paper towels. If cheese is not melted enough, put in the toaster oven or oven at 400 degrees for 3-5 minutes.

Serve with marinara sauce.

Yield: 1 dozen.
