These EASY Air Fryer Mozzarella Cheese Sticks are Everything

60 min Serves 6

Air Fryer Mozzarella Cheese Sticks Recipe

Ingredients

Directions

1

Cut mozzarella cheese sticks in half.

2

Place bread crumbs in a bowl. Place flour in a separate bowl. Mix the egg and milk together and put in another bowl.

3

Dip cheese sticks in flour, then egg, and finally bread crumbs.

4

Lay cheese sticks on a cookie sheet and place in freezer for 1-2 hours or until solid.

5

Place breaded sticks in the fry basket, without overcrowding.

6

Optional but yummy: Mist the sticks with some cooking oil so they'll crisp up beautifully.

7

Set cook time for 10 minutes at 400 degrees. Note: I tried 12 minutes, and mine were a little well done so maybe check at 10 minutes to see if done. (Makes 12 cheese sticks.)

Listen up, mozzarella cheese stick fans!

If you’re in the mood for a delicious melted cheese snack, you’ve gotta try making breaded mozzarella sticks in the air fryer! They’re super easy and fun to make, and they’re such a yummy snack or appetizer.

It’s no secret, I’m obsessed with my air fryer!

In fact, I haven’t been THIS excited about an appliance in awhile, and I’ve been using it DAILY. If you want to make snacks for your family in literally just a few minutes, this is such a handy tool.

One of the first recipes I tried straight out of the box were these Mozzarella Cheese Sticks , and my kids loved them!

Additional Notes

Recipe adapted from PowerAirFryer.com


The breading comes out crispy, and the inside melted!

Serve with some marinara sauce for a winning air fryer idea that my family really enjoyed.

    I tried 400 degrees for about 20 minutes and my cheese melted out everywhere. Messy, but still tasty! What do you suggest to prevent my issue? Lower temp? Less time?

    • Amy

      I read somewhere to use frozen mozarrella sticks to prevent this from happening.

    • Lina D

      Oh darn. I did have one that did that. I read online that starting with frozen cheese sticks may help this. I’m gonna try that next time also!

    • Anna

      Try cooking for 10-12 minutes instead of 20. Hope they turn out for you.

  2. Michelle

    Have you tried a low carb version?

    • Lina D

      I have not personally tried, but read that almond flour and parm cheese would make a yummy low carb version. 🙂

  3. Dali

    What do you use to mist the sticks? I heard that you can’t use cooking spray.

  4. Chris

    These are so good! I served them with lasagna soup last week when my parents came over. My mom was impressed. Thank you, Lina

    • Lina D

      Yay! That’s so great 😀Thanks for sharing 👍
