Enjoy a unique camping appetizer with these Bacon Wrapped Mozzarella Sticks made over a campfire.
Last year, we made bacon wrapped hot dogs over the campfire that were stuffed with mozzarella string cheese sticks. We enjoyed them so much that we decided to explore similar campfire cooking ideas. We came up with these bacon-wrapped mozzarella sticks.
Bacon Wrapped Mozzarella Sticks Recipe
This campfire appetizer is really easy to make. You just need some frozen mozzarella cheese sticks, bacon, and toothpicks. We recommend that you soak the toothpicks in some water before using so they don’t burn on the grill.
We realize it it has hard to keep things frozen when you go camping but that is no problem for this recipe. You don’t want the mozzarella sticks to be frozen when you grill this recipe, so it is okay for them to thaw bit in the cooler.
Remove the mozzarella sticks from the packaging. Start at one end of the mozzarella stick and wrap one to two pieces of bacon around the stick. Hold the bacon in place with toothpicks. We stuck the toothpick all the way through the cheese stick.
Place the bacon wrapped sticks on the grill over the campfire. Turn the sticks at intervals as to cook the bacon evenly. This appetizer is done when the bacon is fully crisp. You might notice the the cheese is starting to pop out of the breading on the mozzarella stick. Doesn’t that look good?
This camping recipe turned out great. Our only regret was that we only had one small box of mozzarella sticks. I easily ate those by myself. You should get a few boxes because these will disappear quickly!
Try this recipe over campfire the next time you camp or on a grill at home. Please let us know how it turned out and what you think of them.
