BACON WRAPPED CHEESE STICKS {KETO/LOW CARB}

low carb bacon wrapped cheese sticks on a platter

Ingredients

  • 6 Mozzarella Cheese Sticks
  • 6 slices of bacon
  • 1 cup approx 1 cup avocado oil for frying depending on the size of your frying pan.

Instructions

  • Freeze the cheese sticks overnight.
  • Wrap a slice of bacon around each cheese stick, starting at one end and rolling carefully until the other end. I wrapped the bacon around the ends and secured it in place with a toothpick. I tried to minimally overlap the bacon so that all of it would get crispy.
  • Heat about 1/2 inch of avocado oil in a cast iron or regular skillet..
  • Carefully place bacon-wrapped cheese stick in a frying pan and turn as each side gets brown and crispy so that the bacon cooks on all sides.
  • Remove from oil when the bacon is crispy and brown on all sides and place on a plate covered with paper towels to absorb excess oil.
  • Enjoy!

Notes

I only included 1/4 of the avocado oil in the nutritional information as most of it was left in the pan.
