Bacon Mozzarella Sticks



Unwrap string cheese and place on a plate or small baking sheet. Freeze until solid, 4 hours up to overnight.

Preheat oven to 400° and line a medium baking sheet with foil. Place bacon in an even layer and sprinkle with Italian seasoning. Bake until slightly crisp but still bendable, 12 to 15 minutes.

Remove bacon from oven and let cool slightly. Line a small baking sheet with foil.

Wrap each frozen stick of string cheese with one strip bacon. Place on prepared baking sheet and bake until bacon is crisp and string cheese is just starting to melt, 5 to 7 minutes.

Serve with marinara on the side for dipping.

Homemade Marinara:


In a medium, heavy-bottomed saucepan, combine the tomatoes (with their juices), olive oil, and sweet Italian sausage seasoning.

Bring the sauce to a simmer over medium-high heat, then lower the heat to keep the sauce at a slow, steady simmer for about 45 minutes, or until droplets of oil float free of the tomatoes. Stir occasionally, and use a sturdy wooden spoon to crush the tomatoes against the side of the pot after about 15 minutes has passed.

Remove the pot from the heat. Add salt and enjoy!
