This post is part of the 10 Ingredient Challenge from our friends at Tabasco. They challenged us to see what we can do with a small list of ingredients that they provided.
This is the list:
For our final recipe, we are making something super deeeelicious.
Bacon-Wrapped Mozzarella & Mozzarella Sticks
For the above, you can take bacon, cook it until done (but not crisp) and wrap it around mozzarella. The warm bacon will slowly melt the mozzarella into deliciousness.
Another option is bacon-wrapped mozz sticks! It’s pretty fun. Check it out below:
1 pound Favorite Cheese such as Mozzarella (1 pound block will yield
about 6 regular pieces)
6 Popsicle Sticks
6 strips Premium Regular Smoked Bacon
Original Red Tabasco sauce
Oil for frying
Preheat a deep fryer (or equivalent) to 400 degrees F.
Cut across the width of a 1 pound block of cheese into about 6 rectangular pieces, or approximately 1 wide blocks.
Liberally cover cheese in Tabasco sauce.
Wrap a single strip of bacon around cheese in a spiral manner from top to bottom, making sure only the ends are not covered by the bacon.
Insert a toothpick to hold the end of the spiral.
Insert a Popsicle stick into the other end of the cheese.
Drop into hot oil and cook for approximately 4 minutes, or until bacon is brown and crisp.
Remove with tongs and place on a plate lined with paper towels to drain.
Allow 5 minutes to cool and remove toothpick.
Serve with your favorite condiments!
