How To Cook Mozzarella Sticks in the Air Fryer
What You’ll Need
To make mozzarella sticks in the air fryer, you’ll need an air fryer, a package of mozzarella sticks, and a few other kitchen staples. You’ll also need a bowl, a shallow pan, a whisk, and some oil. In addition to these, you’ll need some breadcrumbs, some garlic powder, some dried oregano, and some salt.
Preparing the Mozzarella Sticks
Once you have all the ingredients and tools you need, you can begin preparing the mozzarella sticks. Start by preheating the air fryer to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. While it is heating up, you can begin to prepare the mozzarella sticks. Place the mozzarella sticks in a shallow pan and add the oil. Mix the oil and mozzarella together until the mozzarella sticks are completely coated in oil. This will help the breadcrumbs stick to the mozzarella sticks later.
In a separate bowl, mix together the breadcrumbs, garlic powder, oregano, and salt. Once you have the breadcrumb mixture ready, dip the mozzarella sticks into the mixture. Make sure each mozzarella stick is completely coated. Once the mozzarella sticks are ready, place them in the air fryer basket.
Cooking the Mozzarella Sticks
Cook the mozzarella sticks in the air fryer for 10 minutes. After the 10 minutes is up, take the mozzarella sticks out and flip them over. Return the mozzarella sticks to the air fryer and cook for an additional 5 minutes. Once the mozzarella sticks are golden brown and crispy, they are ready to eat!
Serving the Mozzarella Sticks
Once the mozzarella sticks are ready, you can serve them with your favorite dipping sauce. Marinara sauce, ranch dressing, and honey mustard are all popular choices for dipping mozzarella sticks. Enjoy your delicious mozzarella sticks!
