Air Fryer Mozzarella Sticks

Why buy the pre-packaged, frozen version of mozzarella sticks when you can make your own homemade recipe in the air fryer in minutes?

Homemade Mozza Sticks

  • We love mozza sticks because they are crispy on the outside and melty inside.
  • These are easy to make with string cheese and a handful of pantry ingredients.
  • They’re prepped ahead of time and stored in the freezer for a great snack anytime.
