Crunchy egg-roll wrappers stand in for breading around the gooey, stretchy mozzarella cheese center. Serve these with warm pizza sauce for the ultimate pizzeria experience.
Add 1/2-inch of oil to a tall-sided skillet and heat to 375°F over medium to medium high heat.
While the oil is heating, lay a mozzarella stick near the bottom corner of an egg roll wrapper and sprinkle with a small pinch of Italian seasonings. Fold the bottom corner over the cheese stick and roll it up about halfway up the wrapper. Fold the sides of the wrapper in toward the center, moisten the remaining corner with a fingertip dipped in a bowl of water then tightly roll it the rest of the way to seal the wrapper. Repeat with remaining sticks and wrappers.
Fry the sticks in the hot oil, working in batches if necessary and taking care not to crowd the pan, for between 30 and 60 seconds per side, or until deep golden brown. If your wrappers start to leak molten cheese, you can remove them earlier.
Use tongs or a strainer to transfer the cheese sticks from the hot oil to a paper towel lined plate or platter. Let them rest for at least two minutes before biting into them.
Serve, if desired, with pizza sauce for dipping.
I am a Mexican food fiend and nothing makes me happier than a big bowl of pico de gallo and chips. This is such an easy recipe and you can make it mild, medium or spicy depending on what you prefer. I like spicy, so jalapeno peppers are for me, but you could add habanero peppers if you like a lot of heat!
