Bacon Wrapped Bacio Sticks


  1. Cut up Bacio cheese so that it will fit onto a half sheet tray. Spray sheet tray with pan spray, then line with the cheese. Place in oven to melt and slightly caramelize the top of cheese.
  2. Remove from oven and chill in cooler until temperature goes below 40 degrees.
  3. Cut cheese into strips, about 4 inches long. Take one bacon strip and wrap one cheese stick from end to end, covering stick. Take another slice and wrap around covering all sides so no Bacio cheese is visible. Use a toothpick to hold everything in place.
  4. Place in the fryer and cook until bacon is done.
  5. Serve with your choice of dipping sauce.
