Prosciutto-Wrapped Mozzarella Sticks With Marinara Sauce

This insanely easy, 4-ingredient recipe is a new favorite appetizer or snack around here! Fried Prosciutto-Wrapped Mozzarella Sticks with Marinara Sauce are a savory, Trim Healthy Mama-friendly S treat that’s extremely low-carb (fits with the keto diet), sugar-free, and gluten-free!

They take less than 10 minutes to whip up and are oh-so-delicious!

When I first made them, I brought a plateful down to my husband’s office to get his opinion. He took a bite, closed his eyes to enjoy the moment, and then said, “Wow! Just….wow. Can you leave the plate down here?”

I did, and he brought it back later completely cleaned off.

You don’t need any special ingredients for this; you’ll need:

  • prosciutto (you want the slices to be thin enough to be flexible, but thick enough that it doesn’t tear)
  • mozzarella cheese (you can use cheese strings or cut your own strips off a block)
  • butter (for frying)
  • sugar-free marinara sauce (for dipping)

Rao’s Marinara Sauce is a great sugar-free, on-plan option

How To Assemble Prosciutto-Wrapped Mozzarella Sticks:

If you don’t already have mozzarella cheese strings, you’ll need to cut your own strips. They should be approximately half the length of your prosciutto.

Lay a cheese strip in the center of each piece  of prosciutto. Fold up the prosciutto over each end and roll up the sides like a burrito to encase the cheese completely (this is important, because the cheese will melt right out of any loose ends otherwise.)

Melt a tsp of butter in a frying pan over medium-high heat. Use tongs to add your prosciutto-wrapped mozzarella sticks to the sizzling butter, and fry for 3-4 minutes on each side, turning once.

Blot off excess oil with a paper towel before serving with a small bowl of warmed up Marinara sauce.

Bliss, I tell you.

Crispy, flavorful coating.

Ooey, gooey, cheesy inside.

Make it. You won’t be sorry.

  1. I tried making these the other day and in spite of me not cutting the mozzerella stick in half the long way they still turned out tasty!!
    Do you have a favorite sugar free marinara sauce you buy?

  2. These look so good! Which store do you find the Rao’s marinara sauce? I’m in Ontario too, so I imagine I’d be able to find it. Thanks!
