Our Mozzarella Sticks with Wonton Wrappers make for a classic appetizer recipe but with a twist to make this recipe insanely easier to make. Instead of breading the mozzarella with breadcrumbs, we use wonton wrappers. The result are much smaller much crisper little mozzarella sticks. Pair with our marinara sauce for dipping!
