This week I am going to be making Kid’s friendly bite size appetizers. This is one of my favorite theme to work on as I am always on look out to make some kid’s friendly snacks. My BM friend Sapana is hosting this month’s Kid’s delight with the theme Bite size appetizers and I will be sending this recipe to her as a part of the theme.

My boys love Mozzarella sticks. I am not a big fan of frying the sticks and hence have made Egg less Baked Mozzarella sticks in the past. I had one sheet of puff pastry in the freezer for a while and I was looking to make something with it. That is when I got the idea to roll the string cheese in the puff pastry sheet and bake them.

My little one loves string cheese and I always have them in my refrigerator. This is by far the easiest appetizer / snack that I have made. All it needs is some string cheese and puff pastry sheet. I always mention when baking with puff pastry that how lucky we are to have those available in the stores. Puff pastry sheets are such a great vehicle for many different appetizers.

One of the most popular appetizer, Vegetable puff is made with the puff pastry sheets and that is something I make very often. Lately I have been baking many desserts with it and I am enjoying the ease and the flavor.

Few of my other recipes that I have made using puff pastry sheet –

Quesitos  – Dessert from Puerto Rico

Umm Ali – An Egyptian Dessert

Mozzarella Sticks Made with Puff Pastry

Preparation time – 5 minutes
Baking time – 15 minutes
Difficulty level – easy

Ingredients to make Mozzarella sticks – Makes 9

  • Mozzarella String cheese – 5
  • Puff pastry sheet – 1
  • egg wash or cream – to brush the top of the pastry

Procedure to make Mozzarella sticks –

  • Preheat the oven to 400 F.
  • Cut the mozzarella sticks in half and keep them aside.
  • Thaw the puff pastry sheet according to package directions. I usually leave them out on the counter for about an hour and it thaws perfectly.
  • Roll the sheet lightly and then equally divide them into 9 pieces.
  • Place one half piece of mozzarella string cheese in each pastry sheet and wrap it into a log. Fold the edges and pinch to seal. Seal the seams as well to avoid the cheese oozing out of the shell when baking.

  • Bake for about 15 minutes or until the mozzarella sticks are golden brown.
  • Remove from oven and let it cool for couple of minutes. Serve warm with marinara sauce on the side.

  1. Sandhya I really wish I could grab these right now yaar..I love this dish and everytime I see this, I wish we get these here..:)..anyway until I make it myself, let me drool!

  2. We have started getting the puff pastry here , but the prices are high and only gourmet stores stock them . String cheese is something that I tasted in Japan , I know how crazy kids are for these .
    A appetiser with these two would definitely rock , don’t mind flicking one from the screen :))

  3. That’s a lovely idea Sandhya and I can imagine how excited my daughter would be to get herself some of those. Wish the puff pastry sheets here were affordable. Sigh! For no I will feast my eyes only!
