Now that Thanksgiving is over, the Christmas holiday season has begun, which means family gatherings and holiday parties galore. Since my family has several celebrations that center around appetizers, I thought I’d start working on a few recipes that we would be able to enjoy. These Bacon Wrapped Cheese Sticks are so easy to make. I tried making them two different ways. First, I used the air fryer and while they turned out okay, I had to cook them much longer and ended up losing quite a bit of the cheese stick since it started to melt. So, I got out my cast iron skillet, added a little olive oil and fry them in hot oil. They got crispy so much faster! I may have cooked mine a few more minutes than necessary, but I prefer my bacon very crispy. They turned out great…
Ingredients [ For 4 to 5 people ] [ Preparation time : 12 minute – Cooking time : 55 minutes ]
- 6 Mozzarella Cheese Sticks
- 6 slices of bacon
- approx 1 cup olive oil for frying depending on the size of your frying pan.
Freeze the cheese sticks overnight.
Wrap a slice of bacon around each cheese stick starting at one end and rolling carefully until the other end.
I wrapped the bacon around the ends and secured it in place with a toothpick.
I tried to minimally overlap the bacon so that all of it would get crispy.
Heat about 1/2 inch of olive oil in a cast iron skillet.
Carefully place bacon wrapped cheese stick in frying pan and turn as each side gets brown and crispy so that the bacon cooks on all sides.
Remove from oil when the bacon is crispy and brown on all sides and place on a plate covered with paper towels to absorb excess oil.
