  • 40 square wonton wrappers
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 20 ounces part-skim mozzarella, cut into 40 (2 ½” x ¼″ x ¼″) sticks
  • salt to taste
  • oil for frying
  • 1 cup marinara sauce


  • Stir egg and water together and brush each wonton wrapper with the egg wash and place a piece of mozzarella in each wonton, diagonally in one corner.
  • Tightly roll the stick of cheese in the wonton wrapper, tucking the sides in about halfway through the rolling, before completing and sealing.
  • Place wrapped mozzarella stick onto a parchment lined baking sheet, seam side down.
  • Repeat steps 3 and 4 until all the wontons and mozzarella sticks have been used.
  • Place mozzarella stick in the freezer for at least an hour.
  • Pour about 2 inches oil into a tall pot and preheat stovetop to 350˚F.
  • Remove mozzarella sticks from freezer and fry in small batches, for about 3 to 4 minutes or until the wontons turn golden brown and the cheese has melted through.
  • Drain onto a paper towel and lightly season with salt.
  • Serve immediately with warm marinara sauce.
