Wonton Wrapped Mozzarella Sticks

cheese sticks on the bottom, ground beef on top
I have been seeing these wonton wrapped mozzarella sticks all over pinterest, and I was curious but not very hopeful.  Yes, I guess, they made a mozzarella stick of sorts, and the kids did like them alright, but my husband and I thought really bad.  Really, don't bother.  They didn't even hold together that well.  I had my husband go into the freezer for some other type of filling when I was making these, and that was a great call.  I have decided to take a break from shopping for new recipes.  We have lots of busy weeks ahead, and I can't put one more thing in to the pantry or fridge.  I will be playing chopped in my larders.  I may or may not post the recipes.  I don't foresee a lot of tasty dinners, but at least it will be like spring cleaning.
