Bacon-Wrapped Cheese Sticks


I’ve been on a bacon kick lately, and today for a late lunch, I made bacon-wrapped cheese sticks. I hadn’t eaten all day, so by 2pm, I was “hangry” (hungry + angry). Actually, I don’t get angry, but I do get a little grumpy. But if you try to do hungry + grumpy, you get humpy, and that’s not appropriate just silly.

As you can see from the picture above, my attempts at making sure the cheese didn’t ooze out were futile. And I ask myself, how do I make them prettier? In Japan, the food looks like a work of art. Mine, in comparison, looks like a drawing from a kindergartner. Whatever, they tasted amazing! Perhaps I’ll try them with thick cut bacon? Or pan fry them next time instead of baking in the oven? If you have any tips, please leave a comment below!

These are fairly easy to make. All you need are 4 (or more) string cheese sticks (part skim mozzarella was on sale at the grocery store, so that’s what I used), and bacon.

4 (or more) string cheese sticks
8 slices of bacon (2 per cheese stick)
8 toothpicks
Parchment paper or aluminum foil

1. Preheat the oven to 400°F. Place a sheet of parchment paper on a baking sheet.

2. Place two slices of bacon down with one wider side touching a thinner side. Make sense? I hope so. Place cheese stick in the middle.


3. Wrap bacon around the cheese stick and secure both ends with a toothpick. Theoretically, this was supposed to help the melted cheese from coming out, but as you see from my above picture, it didn’t work for me.


4. Bake in oven for 20 minutes.


My mom always loved my kindergarten artwork.

Let me know if you try this recipe and if you’ve found a way to make them so the cheese stays nicely inside the bacon.
