Air Fryer Mozzarella Sticks

  • Author: Jenna
  • Yield: 12 1x


  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 12 lite or reduced-fat mozzarella cheese sticks 
  • 1 cup seasoned fine dry bread crumbs
  • 1/2 cup of marinara sauce


  1. In a shallow dish stir together first three ingredients (through Italian seasoning). In another shallow dish combine eggs and whisk them until well combined. Dip cheese sticks into egg mixture, then coat with flour mixture. Dip again in egg mixture, then coat with breadcrumbs. Place on a baking sheet and freeze 1 hour or until firm.*
  2. Set your air fryer to a temperature of 400 degrees. If your air fryer doesn't go that high, just use the highest setting. Air Fry frozen cheese sticks, six at a time for 5 to 6 minutes.
  3. In a small saucepan heat marinara sauce over medium heat. If you don't want to use a saucepan to heat up your marinara sauce, warm the marinara sauce up in a small bowl in your microwave.  Serve cheese sticks with warm marinara sauce.
  4. Serving Size: 1 mozzarella stick
