Between all the playoff games and the big game coming up, it seems like I’m hosting football parties every weekend. That’s fine with me! We’re a football-loving family and I’m always looking for an excuse to make Easy Baked Mozzarella Sticks. They pair perfectly with Dean’s French Onion with Bacon Dip because let’s face it, everything tastes better with bacon.

Baked Mozzarella Sticks and Dean's Dip

There’s always a crowd at my house when it’s time for the big game! Besides my husband, I have three sons-in-law and five grandsons requesting my Baked Mozzarella Sticks and Dean’s Dips. I purchase Dean’s French Onion with Bacon Dip at my local Walmart. You can also find Dean’s Dips in the refrigerated section of your local grocery store.  The convenience and the cool, creamy dairy fresh taste of Dean’s Dips make these a favorite at my house.

Helpful Hint: Bread the Baked Mozzarella Sticks the day before and refrigerate overnight. It will help you save time on the day of your party.

When ready to bake, place cheese sticks on an ungreased baking pan and drizzle with melted butter. I use parchment paper for easier cleanup. Bake for 6-8 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes before serving with Dean’s French Onion with Bacon Dip.
