My 2 year old grandson LOVES fried mozzarella sticks at various fast food places, which are breaded and cooked in oil in a deep fryer. There are various things that I offered my grandson for a snack, and he DOES like sliced fruit, but I knew that he needed some protein. So I looked around in the fridge, and I had some mozzarella sticks and egg roll skins. I thought I would try wrapping the cheese sticks in the egg roll skins and I fried them in a little olive oil in a cast iron pan. It was a big hit, thus the name my grandson said when he tasted one, "MMMMMMMGOOOOD!"
Place the egg roll skin with one of the point down and start rolling the mozzarella stick from the point in the middle of the cheese stick, adding the seasoning if desired, then tucking in the sides as the skin gets longer on the sides. Continue rolling to the opposite point and just dab a bit of water on your finger to seal the end. When you have all of them rolled, heat the olive oil, spread fairly thin on the pan, and roll them around. When they are all nicely golden brown and crisp, give them a few minutes to drain on paper towel and cool a bit, and enjoy!
Note: I have used tarragon with mozzarella and Swiss, which was very good. I have also tried small can of chopped chili peppers, which is mild, but very good flavor (about a half tsp. for each roll). Toddlers like them plain though.
