Ingredients
  

  • 1 pound bacon typically about 12 slices
  • 12 whole milk mozzarella sticks or low-moisture mozzarella sticks
  • cooking oil not pictured

Instructions
 

  • Unwrap mozzarella sticks from their wrappers.
  • Use one piece of bacon for each mozzarella stick. Wrap one end of the bacon over one end of the cheese stick. Use a toothpick to secure the bacon in place, pushing the toothpick straight through the bacon and into the center of the cheese.
  • Wrap the bacon around the cheese stick, overlapping each layer slightly until the bacon can be folded over the opposite end. Secure with another toothpick. A piece of bacon should completely cover the cheese stick. Set aside.
  • Continue wrapping all of the cheese sticks with bacon.
  • Place the bacon-wrapped cheese sticks in the freezer for at least 30 minutes.
  • Fill a skillet with 2 inches of cooking oil (vegetable oil) and heat over medium-high until the oil reaches 350°F.
  • Remove several cheese sticks from the freezer and add them directly to the heated oil.
  • Fry, flipping after a few minutes until the bacon is cooked to desired crispness.
  • Use a strainer to remove the fried mozzarella strip from the oil and place on paper towels or paper bags to absorb the extra oil.
  • Continue cooking the cheese sticks in batches until done.
  • Remove toothpicks before serving.
