Cheese cigars – the bites of happiness

cheese cigars
Do you have an appetizer recipe which you can just grab and do when your guests arrive unannounced? Well, I have one up my sleeve to share with you. This cheese cigars recipe looks elegant with a wow factor with the gooey cheese. The wow factor is so good, your guests will ask for more.
My first encounter with the cheese cigars was in the Philippines from the frozen aisle of the grocery section. While experimenting with my basic cooking skills and an overactive toddler who used to love to hang around these cheese cigars a saviour to just drop deep fry and serve elegantly. There  the perfect partner for entertaining with cocktails or mocktails,  friends or family.
My second  attempt  was to make it myself.  Spring roll wrapper , and multiple cheese trials have been on each time however much I wrap without a tear the cheese found a way to ooze out while deep frying.  This left an unappetizing crust and all the cheese outside, a bit burnt too and a lot of oil wasted. Slowly and steadily as I got up my spring roll skills up, it gave me the better courage to try this again.
The stringy mozzarella wrapped with the crisp wrapper and waiting to be dunked in a spicy dip will transform the hesitating guests to lifelong friends. Make it ahead, Freeze and use as you need them. Check out the recipe below to see the tips and tricks I use to make it toothsome.

Ah! Anything with mozarella inside it is welcome. I like your idea of deeply wrapping them up in wanton sheets, at least they wouldn’t ooze out, splutter and make a mess! There is an Arab variation for the same, drizzled with sugar syrup, it is absolutely delicious!
