  • Prepare ingredients by placing flour in one bowl, one beaten egg in another and breadcrumbs in another. Slice mozzarella sticks in half.
  • Using one mozzarella stick half at a time, coat in flour, followed by egg, followed by breadcrumbs. Place on a flat tray or baking sheet. Repeat with remaining mozzarella. Place the tray or sheet into the freezer for 10 minutes.
  • Remove the mozzarella sticks from the freezer and coat one more time in only egg, followed by breadcrumbs. Place back onto the sheet or tray and freeze for 10 minutes longer. Preheat air fryer to 380°F.
  • Remove the mozzarella sticks from the freezer and place into air fryer basket or tray. Optionally, spray with a little oil. Air fry for 7 minutes or until beginning to turn golden.
  • Let cool a few minutes before serving. Enjoy!


Cheese: Store bought string cheese works easiest here, but you can also cut a block of mozzarella cheese into mozzarella stick portions.
Flour: Gluten-free flour with or without xanthan gum works fine here, as well as rice, chickpea or tapioca flours.
Egg: Egg really gives the best binding powder and results here, but if you are on an egg-free diet, you can coat in milk instead, though it requires a bit more patience to get the breadcrumbs to stick.
