The hardest part of this recipe for me was to remove the cheese sticks from the wrappers.
Start by cutting up your mozzarella sticks, in half
Place the mozzarella sticks on parchment paper, which is lined on a baking sheet (that will fit in your freezer)
Place the baking sheet (with the parchment paper, and mozzarella sticks) into the freezer for 25 minutes.
After the 25 minutes,
in one bowl place the flour
In another bowl place the eggs and beat them, so they get nice and frothy.
In another bowl, place mix the bread crumbs, cheese, and seasonings and mix well.
Then drip the frozen mozzarella stick into the
bread crumb mixture
As you do them, place them back on the parchment paper lined baking sheet.
Freeze them again for about 1 hour.
NOW--Preheat your air fryer to 400 degrees, the results will be so much better. This is one of the few recipes that I preheat my air fryer for.
Spray your air fryer basket, with non-stick cooking spray. So they don't end up sticking.
Remember not to overcrowd the air fryer basket.
Remember to spray your mozzarella sticks, while they are in the air fryer, you will get some nice golden color.
Set the time for 5 minutes, at 400 degrees F. If you air fryer only goes to 390 degrees F, you may need an additional minute.
Plate, serve and enjoy!
