  4. Two cups, or 240 grams bread crumbs in the Italian style
  5. 50g, or half a cup Parmesan cheese, grated (optional)

  7. One tsp powdered onion
  8. One tsp of dehydrated oregano
  9. One tsp of dried basil

  • Get the cheese sticks ready: To create 24 shorter sticks, cut the mozzarella string cheese sticks in half. Transfer them onto a baking sheet and freeze for a minimum of 60 minutes or until fully solidified. In order to keep the cheese from melting too soon while cooking, this step is essential.
    Get the breading stations ready:
  • Fill a small plate with flour.
  • Whisk the eggs and milk in a separate shallow dish.
    Within a In a third shallow dish, mix together the bread crumbs, basil, oregano, onion, garlic, and Parmesan cheese (if desired).
  • Spread the Cheese on the Sticks:
    Shake off excess flour after rolling each frozen cheese stick in the flour.
  • Make sure it’s well covered by dipping it into the egg mixture.
  • Gently press the bread crumbs onto it as you roll it in the mixture.
  • You can coat each stick with an extra-crispy coating by repeating the procedures with the egg and bread crumbs.
    Reposition the breaded cheese sticks onto the baking sheet, then freeze for an additional half hour. This keeps the cheese from seeping out during cooking and helps the coating set.
  • Warm up the air fryer. For around five minutes, preheat your air fryer to 400°F (200°C).
  • Cook the sticks of mozzarella:
  • Gently mist the Cooking spray-coated basket for air fryers.
  • Make sure the breaded mozzarella sticks in the basket are arranged in a single layer and away from one another. They might need to be cooked in batches.
  • To help the mozzarella sticks crisp up, lightly mist the tops with cooking spray.
  • For 6 to 8 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy, air fried at 400°F (200°C). To guarantee consistent cooking, inspect them midway through and give the basket a gentle shake.
  • To serve, take the mozzarella sticks out of the air fryer and give them a minute to cool. Present alongside marinara sauce for dunks.
