Mozzarella Cheese Sticks

Mozzarella Cheese Sticks HomemadeI will be come out and be honest about something, and that is, I order out food about once a week for the family. This typically includes one of three establishments, and one being our local pizza joint, Crossroads II. Crossroads II has really great pizza, and my kids love their cheese sticks. So, with that said, I wanted to make them cheese sticks, as I already make some pretty awesome pizza. A recent conversation with my mom also sparked the desire to make these, as she said they made them and they were pretty awesome. Keep in mind that this appetizer is super easy to make and doesn’t take but a few minutes to cook.

Ingredients:

  • Spring Roll wrappers
  • String Cheese
  • Oil
  • Deli salami or ham optional
  • 1 egg, beaten

Ok, so the wrapper is pretty important here. I use a particular brand, and would recommend the spring roll wrapper as it is thin, and provides a great crunch. Lay out your wrapper, lay a slice of ham or salami up near you, place a piece of string cheese on top, and begin to roll. Once you are nearing the end, brush on your egg, fold in both sides, and continue to roll over to make a tight seal. Continue this process for however many cheese sticks you want to make.

Heat a large enough pan of oil so that the cheese sticks fit comfortably, and bring this to a medium to high heat. Cook the cheese sticks for nearly 3-5 minutes, just enough so that they are golden brown. Overcooking will result in an exploded cheese stick so be careful.

Let these cool for a few minutes before eating, and serve with your favorite sauce. Let me tell you, my kids gobbled these up. Enjoy.

Thank you for visiting my website. Truly, I do appreciate it. My free time and stress reliever is cooking for my family, friends, and everyone in between. The recipes you find on this site are those that I have either created, been part of, or those that I simply enjoy and have made my own in some shape, form, or other. My focus has always been on comfort food, because at the end of a long work day, you want something comforting. I currently am the father of three children, and married to a wonderful wife of thirteen years. There is nothing fancy with these recipes, just simple, and I will admit, not so simple ingredients, and a simple kitchen corner I can call my own. I learned early on that cooking and bringing family together was very important. After all, this notion of being together at dinner time was instilled early on by my parents. There are many memories of being in the kitchen with my parents, watching them cook, or preparing meals, or those home cooked smells while waiting for dinner. My parents who worked full-time, always had home cooked meals during the week, with the exception of Friday nights where we would enjoy a Wisconsin fish fry, and often on late afternoons on Sunday, where we would order Ann's pizza. I tend to cook by making things up. As a home cook, I think you have to take chances, and add or subtract ingredients that make up a dish, and make them your own. Remember to taste, and taste often. If a dish has potential, try it again, and make it your own. You should also note that I do not count calories, or break down recipes into grams of anything. To me, that's a bit boring. My philosophy is that if the food is good, eat it, and eat it in moderation. Life is just too short not to enjoy good food.
