Surprisingly these bacon wrapped mozzarella sticks reheat well (use toaster oven for reheating for best results) and are great for a quick breakfast!
Ingredients
  • 1 Frigo cheese heads mozzarella cheese stick (cut in half)
  • 2 slices of bacon (I used thick sliced but I think thin would be better)
  • coconut oil for frying (expeller pressed works well for this purpose)
  • low sugar pizza sauce for dipping (optional)
  • toothpicks
Instructions
  1. Preheat your coconut oil in a deep fryer to 350 degrees.
  2. Wrap your cut in half cheese sticks with the bacon, overlapping as you go just a bit so the bacon stays on. At the end of the wrapping, secure with a toothpick. It's ok to not cover the ends of the cheese with bacon, actually it turns out better that way.
  3. Drop the bacon wrapped cheese in the hot oil and cook until the bacon is quite brown and crispy, about 2-3 minutes (depending on the thickness of your bacon). Watch them closely because they will cook quickly.
  4. Remove to a paper towel to cool for a few minutes. Remove the toothpick and enjoy with your favorite dipping sauce!
Notes
Net carbs = 1 g. per piece (half a cheese stick wrapped with one slice bacon - not counting the pizza sauce)
