Crunchy on the outside, gooey on the inside, a perfect snack or side, fried with much less oil in the airfryer.
Mozzarella is probably my favorite cheese so naturally mozzarella sticks are a firm favorite of mine. They are so simple to cook even with the freezing parts which can take a while.
I love to cook the mozzarella sticks in the airfryer as they are perfectly gooey and just the right amount of crispness on the outside. Compared to using an ordinary fryer the coating is much lighter and flakier and less dense, soaking up much less oil, resulting in a much more enjoyment from each bite.
Freeze Mozzerella sticks
Wrap them in clingfilm and put them into the freezer until they are solid.
Thoroughly whisk the large egg in a bowl.
Combine breadcrumbs, panko, parmesan and dried parsley into a mixing bowl.
Dip Mozzerella sticks
Dip the sticks in the flower, then egg, then the crumb mixture.
Freeze for another hour
I know this means you'll have to wait.. but it'll be worth it I promise!
Preheat the air fryer to 390°F (200°C) for 4 minutes.
Lightly spray with oil
This will give them that crispy outer that we're looking for.
Get ready to air fry
Move the sticks into the airfryer basket.
Air fry for 4 minutes
Shake, then Air fry for another 4 minutes
Or until slightly melted and crispy
