National Cheese Lover Day (Cheese Recipes)
Mozzarella Sticks

These were a HIT in the afternoon at our New Year's Eve get-together. Everyone LOVED them, I couldn't keep them coming off the stove fast enough. Never ever would I have thought to roll up a simple little cheese stick in an egg roll wrapper, and WOW! The taste is out-of-this-world DE-LI-CIOUS!!! (Of course these are not on the 2012 Diet... but we will be making them again... as soon as possible)

These were SO good!
Mozzarella Sticks
from Taste of Home

12 pieces string cheese
12 egg roll wrappers
Oil for deep-fat frying
Marinara or spaghetti sauce

Place a piece of string cheese near the bottom corner of one egg roll wrapper (keep remaining wrappers covered with a damp paper towel until ready to use). Fold bottom corner over cheese. Roll up halfway; fold sides toward center over cheese. Moisten remaining corner with water; roll up tightly to seal. Repeat with remaining wrappers and cheese.

In an electric skillet, heat 1/2 in. of oil to 375°.

Fry sticks, a few at a time, for 30-60 seconds on each side or until golden brown. Drain on paper towels. Serve with marinara sauce.
