Wonton wrapper mozzarella sticks recipe. Two ingredients and 5 minutes is all it takes!

There’s something about fried cheese that makes me weak in the knees.

Maybe it’s the upper-Midwesterner in me. We’re all about our fried cheese curds and other hot cheese snacks up here.

Ever been to the Minnesota State Fair? Then you know what I mean.

About The Recipe: Mozzarella Sticks Made With Wonton Wrappers

This recipe kind of happened by chance.

I had half a package of wonton wrappers leftover after making homemade potstickers. I also happened to have some mozzarella string cheese sticks in my fridge.

Larger egg roll wrappers will also work this recipe. You’ll just need to cut off a bit of the wrapper or else the inside layers won’t fully cook.

I decided to put the two together, and within a matter of minutes, I was noshing on crispy-on-the-outside, oozing-melty-cheese-on-the-inside mozzarella sticks – with just TWO ingredients!

Sometimes things just work out in life, you know?

Here’s what I paid:

No Deep-Fryer Required!

These are super easy to make – no deep fryer required! I just pan fried them in a little bit of cooking oil over medium-high heat.

Cooking tip: Make sure to rotate the sticks as they turn brown. Once you’re done, the egg roll wrapper will be browned and crispy, and the cheese will be melted and oozy.

Make This Variation: Pizza Sticks

If you want to make these into pizza sticks, wrap a couple of slices of pepperoni around the mozzarella stick before rolling up and frying.

Homemade pizza sticks couldn’t be easier.

Wonton Wrapper Mozzarella Sticks

Yield: 8 mozzarella sticks
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes

Serve these crispy mozzarella sticks with marinara sauce, buffalo sauce, ranch dressing, or your favorite dipping sauce.


  • 8 mozzarella sticks (string cheese)
  • 8 wonton wrappers (or egg roll wrappers)
  • Oil, for frying


  1. To assemble mozzarella sticks, place a wonton wrapper on the counter in a diamond shape. Place the string cheese at the bottom of the diamond. Roll up, tucking in the left and right sides of the wonton wrappers. Make sure that there are no rips or tears in the wonton wrapper or the cheese will come oozing out. Secure the edges of the wonton wrappers with a bit of water.
  2. Heat oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Use just enough oil to cover the bottom of the pan. No need to submerge the mozzarella sticks in oil. To test whether the oil is hot enough, dip the end of the mozzarella stick in the oil. If it sizzles, it's ready. Place a mozzarella stick in the oil. Fry on one side until golden brown. Turn over to brown the other side.
  3. Remove from pan and place on a plate covered with paper towels to drain excess oil. Serve with your choice of dipping sauce.
