Fried Mozzarella-Pepperoni Sticks made easy with a few simple ingredients. These are a fun appetizer for any party. See this recipe MADE ON VIDEO HERE.
Who doesn’t love fried mozzarella sticks? It’s always one of those “special restaurant” appetizers we seem to reserve for only having when we are out to eat. But, what if you want to serve them at home? Too hard to make? Not anymore.
A while back I was reading a magazine, I think it was Taste of Home, and it mentioned using egg roll wrappers and string cheese to make these sticks. I thought it was a brilliant idea, but I couldn’t stop there. I’ve added pepperoni to mine to put this appetizer on a pedestal. Serve with your favorite marinara sauce or make my Ultimate Pizza Sauce for the best taste.
Wow, what a treat these were on a very cold, snowy and wet day at my house. You might die and go to heaven once you bite into these. So good!!
So easy to wrap up.
