Cheese sticks wrapped in cheese dough then rolled in pork rinds before baking in the oven. If you like melted gooey cheese then you will love this recipe.

Mozzarella Cheese Pockets

I was originally aiming for mozzarella sticks like the ones you can get at diners, but I didn’t freeze the cheese before baking so they spread out. If you want to, you can freeze these for 30 minutes and then deep fry or bake for classic mozzarella sticks.

I kind of like them as pockets so I decided to leave it as is. They could be stuffed with any filling really, not just cheese. The important point is that these taste great!

3. Add in the large egg then mix everything together. I like to use a silicone spatula because it doesn’t stick to the dough.

4. Place the dough on a piece of parchment or wax paper. If the dough is acting a bit “wet” then I prefer to use wax paper.

5. Place a second piece of paper on the top then roll it out into a rectangle shape.

 

6. Cut the rectangle into 8 smaller rectangles.

8. Roll the cheese sticks in the crushed pork rinds. Press the rinds into the dough so that they stick.

9. Bake at 400°F for 20-25 minutes. They will look browned and spread out on the tray a bit. If you want them to be shaped more like mozzarella sticks then you can try deep frying these, or placing in the freezer for 30 minutes before baking.
