Tuesdays At The Table - Mozzarella Sticks

Hey gang!!!  Did all my East Coast girls make it through Irene?  We got hour upon hour of whipping wind and rain.  There's a tree down in the back yard...but despite some flickering, the electricity never really went off on me.  I'm really lucky.  I hope you all faired as well as I did.  A big "thank you" to all my loves that checked in on me via Twitter and email.  :-)

I'm a sucker for mozzarella sticks.  I don't have them often (hello, calories!!), and the last time I tried to make them at home, I ended up with a pool of mozzarella in a pan.  Luckily, I stumbled across a breading cheat on Taste of Home.  Soooo yummy!

Mozzarella Sticks

12 pieces string cheese
12 egg roll wrappers
Oil for frying
Marinara 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°. (NOTE: I don't use a thermometer.  I heat the pan on medium high for a few minutes and then test with a drop of water to make sure that the oil is hot.)

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.

    I posted about sweet peppers, a flavorful alternative to the common bell. Check out how to choose them, use them, and their nutrient content.

    We weathered the storm fine here in Massachusetts. A few downed branches and loss of power during the storm. Everything is back to normal now.
