- Prep the Mozzarella Sticks: Unwrap the mozzarella cheese sticks and place them in the freezer for about 30 minutes. This helps prevent excessive melting during cooking.
- Prepare the Breading Station: Set up a breading station with three shallow bowls. Place flour in the first bowl, beaten eggs in the second bowl, and breadcrumbs mixed with Italian seasoning and garlic powder (if using) in the third bowl.
- Bread the Mozzarella Sticks: Roll each frozen cheese stick in the flour to coat lightly. Then dip it into the beaten eggs, allowing excess egg to drip off. Finally, coat the stick in the breadcrumb mixture, pressing gently to adhere.
- Freeze Again (Optional): For best results, place the breaded mozzarella sticks on a baking sheet and freeze them for an additional 15-20 minutes. This helps set the breading and prevents melting too quickly.
- Preheat the Air Fryer: Preheat your air fryer to 375°F (190°C) for a few minutes.
- Grease the Air Fryer Basket: Lightly grease the EaZy MealZ Air Fryer Basket with cooking spray or a brush of olive oil to prevent sticking.
- Air Fry the Mozzarella Sticks: Place the breaded mozzarella sticks in EaZy MealZ Are Fryer Basket in a single layer, without overcrowding. Depending on the size of your air fryer, you may need to cook them in batches.
- Air Fry for 6-8 Minutes: Air fry the mozzarella sticks at 375°F (190°C) for 6-8 minutes, or until they are golden brown and the cheese is melted inside. Flip the sticks halfway through the cooking time for even browning.
- Serve: Once the mozzarella sticks are cooked and crispy, remove them from the air fryer and serve them immediately with marinara sauce for dipping.
Enjoy these Air Fryer Mozzarella Sticks as a delightful appetizer or party snack. The crispy exterior and gooey melted cheese inside are sure to be a hit with everyone!
