Cheese sticks (and zucchini sticks) have to be my favorite appetizers… ever!

These are amazing!  Crispy crunchy egg roll wrappers filled with ooey gooey mozzarella cheese!!

These are super simple to make and literally take just a minute or two to cook up!  When rolling them up, make sure they are sealed so the cheese doesn’t leak out!  We love to serve them with a bow of our favorite marinara sauce.

  1. Can these be made ahead? I want to take then to a family vacation at the lake and the more food prep I can do at home means more time on the lake.

  2. I got wonton wrappers instead of egg roll wrappers :( Will they still work? I know I will have to cut the string cheese smaller. But will they turn out the same or not? Am I at a loss here?

  3. What a great snack, we just love Mozzarella Sticks! Thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday and hope you are having a great week.

  4. What?! I thought this was going to be a complicated batter recipe. I am SO excited that it’s not! I will definitely try this recipe.

  5. YUM! I love mozzarella sticks! I tried to make them once and it was a complete fail, so maybe I’ll have more success with this recipe. I’ll pinning this for sure!

    PS. I’m currently hosting a link up, Delicious Dish Tuesday, that I think you’d be interested in. I hope to see your delicious recipes there :)

  6. Visiting from Mix It Up Monday – These look terrific!! I’ve never heard/seen them wrapped up like that. I always find the baked recipes. I see a fast food night at home coming up! Thank you for sharing.
