Description

These delicious air fryer mozzarella sticks are crispy on the outside and super cheesy on the inside. Serve with marinara sauce for dipping.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 16 oz block of low moisture mozzarella, sliced
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup Panko bread crumbs
  • 1 tsp minced onion
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp basil
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsp grated parmesan cheese
  • oil spray (we prefer avocado)

Instructions

  • Slice your mozzarella into equal pieces that are approximately 1/2 inch by 2 inches (they don’t have to be perfect)
  • Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • Get out three small bowls. In the first bowl, whisk your eggs. In the second bowl, combine flour, parmesan cheese, salt, and pepper. In the last bowl, combine both types of bread crumbs and the remaining spices.
  • Using a toothpick, dip the first piece of mozzarella into the egg, making sure it’s completely covered. Shake off the excess.
  • Dip the same piece of mozzarella into the flour, making sure it’s completely covered. Shake off the excess.
  • Dip the same piece of mozzarella back into the egg, making sure it’s completely covered. Shake off the excess.
  • Dip the same piece of mozzarella into the bread crumbs mixture, making sure it’s completely covered. Shake off the excess.
  • Place the completely breaded piece of cheese onto your parchment paper-lined baking sheet.
  • Repeat with the rest of your pieces of mozzarella.
  • Freeze the entire sheet of breaded mozzarella for 1-2 hours. Once you’ve removed them, spray them with oil spray.
  • Place the mozzarella sticks into your air fryer basket, making sure to leave space around each one. You may need to do this a few times, depending on the size of your air fryer basket.
  • Cook at 390º for 6 minutes.
  • Serve with a marinara sauce for dipping.
