Making mozzarella sticks at home usually requires setting up a breading station with flour, eggs and breadcrumbs. It can be a bit of a mess, but there is an easier way to make mozzarella sticks at home.
This recipe requires lumpia wrappers, which are different than egg roll wrappers. They are more like crepes and are very crispy when fried. You can find them in the freezer section at your local Asian market or well stocked grocery store.
6 Mozzarella sticks
12 Lumpia Wrappers, defrosted
Vegetable oil, for frying
Directions: Start by cutting the mozzarella sticks in half. Take a lumpia wrapper and place the cheese stick on top and roll it up like a burrito.
Once you get to the point where you are almost at the edge, take a little water and dab it on the edge to help the wrapper stay sealed.
Once you have all your cheese sticks rolled up, fry them in the vegetable oil that you have preheated to 350° F.
They fry up in 60-90 seconds, so keep an eye on them. Drain them on paper towels and serve them hot with a side on marinara sauce.
