Just the thought of these bacon-wrapped mozzarella sticks is enough to make your taste buds tingle. Here’s how to make them:


  • Bacon: Slices of bacon provide the crisp, salty coating for the fried mozzarella cheese sticks.
  • Mozzarella cheese sticks: Opt for string cheese for its mild flavor and perfect melting properties. Mix it up with cheddar, Colby Jack, or pepper jack cheese sticks.
  • Olive oil: Use about a cup of olive oil for shallow frying. If preferred, substitute with canola or vegetable oil.


  1. Freeze the cheese sticks overnight. The next day, wrap each cheese stick with a slice of bacon, starting at one end and rolling carefully until the other end. Secure the bacon with a toothpick, ensuring minimal overlap for crispy perfection.
  2. Heat about 1/2 inch of olive oil in a cast-iron skillet. Carefully place the bacon-wrapped cheese sticks into the hot oil. Turn them as browns and crisps on each side, ensuring even cooking.
  3. Once the bacon is crispy and brown on all sides and the cheese starts to melt, remove the sticks from the oil. Place them on a plate lined with paper towels to absorb excess oil.
