Makes 6 servings
Prep Time: 15 min.
Frying Time: 4 min.
Preheat a deep fryer (or equivalent) to
400° F. Have a brown paper bag or paper towels nearby.
Cut across the width of a 1 pound
block of cheese into about 6 rectangular pieces, or approximately
1" wide blocks. 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 bacon.
Insert 1 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 brown
paper bag to drain. Allow 5 minutes to cool and remove
toothpick. Serve with favorite condiment, such as
mustard or ranch dressing.
