Makes 10 or enough to serve 2

2 mozzarella sticks
10 round or square wonton wrappers
10 thin slices pepperoni
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons water

1. Cut the mozzarella sticks in half lengthwise and then cut into 1/2-inch pieces.

2. Line up the wonton wrappers on the counter. Place a slice of pepperoni in the middle and then 2 pieces of mozzarella. Have a small bowl of cold water on hand. Dip your finger in the water and run it around the edge of the wrappers. Fold the wrappers in half and seal the edges by pressing down with your fingers; set aside.

3. Place a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. When it is hot, add the olive oil and swirl it around. Carefully place the wontons in the pan. Brown for about 1 minute on each side, using tongs to turn them. Remove the pan from the heat.

4. Add the water to the pan (be careful - it will splatter). Cover with a lid. Let the skillet sit for 1 minute.
