Looking for a new and delicious Italian-inspired appetizer? This is the one! My basil and mozzarella wontons are made with fresh mozzarella cheese wrapped in basil leaves, wonton wrappers and then deep-fried to perfection. And, to go with this delicious appetizer, a simple tomato dipping sauce. You’ll love the classic Italian flavors of this unique appetizer preparation! It’s a new twist on classic Italian cuisine!
When you bite into these little wontons, you’ll be surprised with warm, melted mozzarella cheese wrapped in the crunchy wonton wrapper and the refreshing flavor of fresh basil. The flavor combination is spectacular!
This is a great appetizer option if you’re planning an Italian main entree, such as lasagna or another rich pasta dish. The flavors will get your palate ready for the classic Italian flavors of basil, tomato and mozzarella, making you hungry for more! I like to make my own dipping sauce for this recipe but you could use any pre-made tomato sauce of your choosing! Even pre-made pesto would work well with these wontons!
