These homemade mozzarella sticks offer all of the crispy-coated, cheesy goodness you want without the deep-fried mess on your stovetop. We like to call that a “win-win.”
1 cup (about 4 1/4 oz.) all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 large eggs
1 tablespoon whole milk
1 cup seasoned panko (Japanese-style breadcrumbs)
8 (1-oz.) mozzarella string cheese sticks
1/2 cup marinara sauce
How to Make It
Combine flour and baking soda in a shallow dish. Whisk eggs and milk together in a second shallow dish. Pour panko in a third shallow dish. Coat cheese sticks in flour mixture, and then in egg mixture; coat in breadcrumbs. Freeze breaded cheese sticks for 30 minutes.
Lightly coat air-fryer basket with cooking spray. Add 4 sticks at a time to fryer basket, and cook at 400°F for 6 minutes. Repeat with remaining cheese sticks, and serve immediately with marinara sauce.
