There is nothing better than enjoying mozzarella sticks at home besides finding out how incredibly easy they are to make. Each mozzarella stick is seasoned from start to finish and then fried until golden brown. These make the perfect appetizers or side dish for your favorite meals. Paired with marinara sauce, these cheesy goodness are better than any mozzarella sticks you would get from the store or restaurant.

FAQS

Can I bake these in the air fryer? Yes, you can bake these at 390°F for 5-7 minutes. Please keep in mind that these will not have the same level of crispiness and flavor that you’d get when you fry them.

Can I use Cheese Stings? I never used them, but you can use them since they are more convenient.

Do I need to freeze them? Yes. Do not skip this step. Otherwise, they will end up in a gooey mess if you were to fry them immediately.

HOW TO STORE IT

These are best enjoyed after being refrigerated for up to 2 days. If you wish to keep these longer, you can freeze them for up to 3 months in an airtight container.
