Gooey mozzarella cheese is encased in bacon, a keto staple, in this favorite snack recipe. In Sneaky Keto Classics, you'll find a recipe for a more traditional style of mozzarella sticks, but since everything is better with bacon, why not give these a try? Crunchy on the outside but melty on the inside, these are a crowd pleaser as well as an indulgent late-night snack.

Step 2Cut each string cheese stick in half widthwise.
Step 3Wrap each half of string cheese in one slice of bacon. Secure with a toothpick. Keep the ends of the cheese stick exposed for better cooking.
