Air Fryer Mozzarella Sticks


  • 1 pound block mozzarella cheese
  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour 
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup Italian-style bread crumbs
  • cooking spray
  • warm marinara sauce


  1. Cut cheese into ½-inch sticks.
  2. Place flour in a small shallow dish. Beat eggs in a separate small, shallow dish. Add breadcrumbs to a third dish.
  3. Lightly dredge mozzarella sticks in flour. Dip sticks into beaten egg and let any excess egg drip back into dish. Press sticks in breadcrumbs to coat. 
  4. Lay breaded mozzarella sticks on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper. Freeze sticks until solid, about 1 hour. 
  5. Preheat air fryer to 400°F (200°C).
  6. Arrange mozzarella sticks in a single layer in the air fryer basket and spray with cooking spray.
  7. Cook sticks until golden brown, about 10 minutes.
  8. Plate mozzarella sticks and repeat with remaining sticks.
  9. Serve mozzarella sticks with marinara sauce.
Mealthy tip:

Try panko bread crumbs instead of the Italian-style bread crumbs, if desired.

Make these gluten-free by using gluten-free flour instead of the all-purpose flour and gluten-free panko bread crumbs instead of Italian-style bread crumbs.
