Mozzarella Bites

Crispy, cheesy yumminess is what these are!

Mozzarella Bites
  • 1 package of fresh mozzarella (packaged in liquid) cut into 1 inch cubes
  • 1 egg + 1 tablespoon of water for egg wash
  • 15 fresh basil leaves, plus more for garnish
  • 30 sheets fresh wonton wrappers
  • 1 cup oil
  • 1 cup of spaghetti sauce

Whisk the egg and water together with a fork. Wash and dry the basil leaves and then stack 5 together, roll them together into a little parcel, cut them length wise into little strips. On top of one a wontons, place a mozzarella cube and sprinkle a bit of the basil on top. Brush the outside of the wonton with the egg wash. Press ends together and tuck the ends underneath. Let rest for about a minute.

Heat the oil in a large skillet on medium heat. Place wontons in the pan and cook about 8 or 10 minutes until golden brown on each side. Drain on paper towels. Sprinkle with grated cheese. Serve immediately with warm spaghetti sauce. Enjoy!
