Recipe Tips

  • The oil will help ensure that the crumb on the mozzarella sticks crisps up nicely. You can skip the oil if you want it to be slightly healthier.
  • Homemade mozzarella sticks will also work great. You may need to reduce the cooking time down to just five to eight minutes.
  • The cheese oozing out of the sticks is an indicator that they are cooked and ready to be eaten.
  • You can easily double the number of cheese sticks if you have a large air fryer (7.2L (6.6 qt) like mine.
  • Flipping the sticks is not compulsory but does help ensure an even cook.
  • The nutritional information below is just an estimate. Please refer to the frozen mozzarella stick's box for the most reliable information.
