I don't know why, but I don't usually find myself watching any of Guy Fieri's shows...Food Network or Minute to Win It. I really don't know why. I always love his recipes and if I do land on Minute to Win It, I am sucked in for sure! Maybe he's just too cool. Maybe it's his crazy hair and arm band. Anyhoo, a while back he was cooking with his son...so cute! He was talking about how he hates to make mozzarella sticks because they break open as they cook. I hate to make them because it feels kind of good to say I don't make a habit out of frying cheese. Well, so much for that. He asked me if I had a need for fried cheese. I wanted to say no but my heart said yes. Then, he pulled out this winner from his back pocket and I had to try it.
Heat canola oil to about 375 degrees. Since I don't have a cooking thermometer, I just kept dropping stuff in it until it bubbled...oober scientific
While the oil was heating, I assembled a couple mozzy-sticks. I laid out an egg roll wrap and placed three slices of pepperoni and half of an old-school Polly-O String Cheese in the middle. Was the pepperoni necessary? No. Did I add it anyway? Yes. Did I mention this is in no way a healthy snack?
DISCLAIMER: This is an extreeemely unhealthy snack
Then, just as the package instructed, I folded over one half of the wrap, then folded in both edges, and rolled until I had a mozzy-egg roll. I sealed it with some egg-wash.
Then, I dredged the mozzy-egg-roll in the egg-wash and I rolled it in some Italian breadcrumbs.
When the oil was ready, I dropped them in and oh-my-good-ness!
Within seconds, I had the most beautiful mozzy-sticks I've ever seen! This is a must-try! Don't forget the spicy dipping sauce!
