Homemade Mozzarella Sticks

I don’t like to admit that I’m ever selfish, but from time to time I do tend to act a bit more needy than any normal girl ever should.

This recipe all started when I was experiencing that thing women experience once a month – that pull your hair out and scream until you get it, food craving.  You know what I’m talking about.  I didn’t just WANT mozzarella sticks, but my body CRAVED them.  Every day I didn’t have them was another day I was in agony.

I pulled one of those, “If you love me, you’ll make these for me,” classic acts of desperation.

{I am loved!}

A few days later, I came home from work to find a fresh, hot batch of beautiful homemade mozzarella sticks waiting for me.  My absolutely wonderful boyfriend made these little cheesy masterpieces.  I was a foodie in heaven.

He used egg roll wrappers for this recipe, which, is something I had never seen before.  They were really good!  The wrapper was super crisp and kept everything within it’s shell nice and gooey.

I’m a believer.  And I am one lucky lady.  Thanks Mister!

Homemade Mozzarella Sticks


  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 1/2 cups Italian seasoned bread crumbs
  • 10 egg roll wrappers
  • 10 mozzarella string cheese sticks
  • 1 quart vegetable oil, for frying
  • marinara sauce, for dipping


  1. Beat the eggs in a mixing bowl. Whisk in the milk, then set aside. Place the bread crumbs into a plastic bag, and set aside.
  2. Separate and place an egg roll wrapper onto your work surface with one of the tips pointed towards you. Moisten the two far edges of the wrapper with water. Place a string cheese stick onto the corner nearest you, and roll it in 1/3 of the way, fold over the right and left corners, then continue rolling to the end, pressing to seal. Repeat with the remaining string cheese sticks and egg roll wrappers.
  3. Heat oil in a deep-fryer or large saucepan to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
  4. Dip the mozzarella sticks into the egg wash, then toss in the bread crumbs. Cook in batches in the hot oil until crisp and golden brown, 3 to 4 minutes. Serve hot with marinara sauce.
