Bacon Wrapped Mozzarella Sticks

It just doesn’t get much better than this. Bacon is wrapped around cheese sticks, then they are breaded and deep-fried. These mozzarella sticks are the perfect party food, but despite being deep-fried, they re-heat well in the oven or microwave so you could make a batch and snack on them for several days. Serving them with the marinara dipping sauce is entirely optional, but really adds to to the de-bacon-liciousness.

1 package of Mozzarella string cheese sticks
1 package of bacon

1. Heat oven to 350° F. Place bacon on a baking sheet lined with aluminum foil and bake on middle rack for 10 min. Cool on cooling rack.

2. Wrap the cheese sticks with the bacon placing a toothpick in either end of the bacon strip to keep it attached to the cheese stick.

3. Dip the wrapped stick in the egg wash then roll it in the Dixie fry mix.

4. Deep fry the stick in vegetable oil at 350° F for about 30 seconds or until they turn golden brown.
Place on a paper towel to absorb the extra oil and serve.
