Fried Mozzarella Pepperoni Sticks
Every bite into an appetizer, roll your eyes, make that ‘ooooooh my’ sound and smile? That’s what we did when we took our first memorable bite of these fried mozzarella pepperoni sticks.
- 12 pieces string cheese I used mozzarella
- 12 egg roll wrappers
- 36 slices pepperoni
- oil for frying
- marinara sauce warmed
Heat oil to 375 F in a deep fryer, Dutch oven or deep skillet.
Working in batches, place egg roll wrappers in front of you with one corner towards you and one pointing away from your. The others will point to your left and right, forming a diamond. The wrappers are rectangular so it won't be a perfect diamond, but close enough.
Place three pieces of pepperoni in the center of the wrapper, leaving about an inch between the pepperoni and the left and right points of the diamond.
Center a piece of cheese over the pepperoni.
Grab the bottom point of the wrapper and fold over the top of the cheese. Fold in the sides. Then roll up until you get to the top point. Just before you roll that last inch brush the inside of the wrapper with water to help hold.
Fry the sticks in oil for about 1 minute or until golden brown. Remove to a wire rack-lined sheet pan to drain and cool slightly.
Serve with warmed marinara sauce for dipping.
