  • 1 cup panko bread crumbs
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 8 sticks of mozzarella string cheese cut in half
  • 16 wonton wrappers
  • bowl of water
  • 1 egg beaten
  • oil for frying


  • Combine the panko, salt and garlic powder together in a bowl.
  • Place one piece of mozzarella in a wonton wrapper. Dip your finger in the water and run along the edges of the wrapper. Fold the wrapper around the mozzarella so that it is completely closed. Dip into the egg. Dredge in the panko mixture to coat completely. Repeat with remaining ingredients.
  • In a large pot heat 1 inch of oil to 350 degrees. Fry mozzarella sticks, in batches if necessary, until golden brown, 2 to 3 minutes. Use a slotted spoon to transfer to a paper towel lined plate. Sprinkle with kosher salt. Serve.
