Baked Cheese Sticks

Cheese is the third member of our family. We eat it daily, multiple times a day! We love going to restaurants and trying different types of fried cheese sticks, especially cheese curds. I decided to try a version of cheese sticks at home that was a little more waist-friendly. Baked instead of fried, these are are so yummy and we gobbled them up and added them to our list of repeat recipes!

10 cheese sticks
30 won ton wrappers
Olive oil

Stagger 3 won ton wrappers diagonally on top of one another. Place a piece of string cheese near the bottom corner of one wrapper. Moisten all edges with water. Fold bottom corner of wrapper over cheese. Alternate folding sides toward center over cheese. Finish by folding the far end of the wrapper over cheese, and fold sides over top.

Brush tops with olive oil and sprinkle generously with salt. Repeat with remaining wrappers and cheese.
Bake at 400 degrees for 15 minutes, then turn cheese sticks over and bake for an additional 5 minutes. Serve with marinara sauce.

Makes 10 cheese sticks.

Made this tonight :) I used light string cheese, used 2 wonton wraps instead of 3 and sprayed with cooking spray instead of brushing with olive oil. Very good!!! Thanks for sharing!!!
