Frozen Mozzarella Sticks
Optional - Marinara Sauce, ranch, barbecue sauce, or your favorite dipping sauce.
You can use a homemade mozzarella sticks recipe but you will need to adjust the cooking time.
Air fryer parchment paper - if you want to make clean up a little easier you can use parchment paper to soak in any cheese melted out of the mozzarella sticks.
Do not thaw the mozzarella sticks
No oil is needed
Make sure you do not crowd the air fryer basket. You want the air to be able to wrap around each mozzarella stick. The mozzarella cheese sticks should be in a single layer in the air fryer basket.
Shake the basket about halfway through to rotate the mozzarella sticks
You may need to adjust your cooking time based on how your air fryer cooks. Start with a minute or 2 less and work your way up from there.
This recipe is based on not having to preheat the air fryer! If your air fryer requires preheating you will want to lower the cook time by a minute or two at least.
If you cook a 2nd or 3rd batch they will cook faster than the 1st one since the air fryer has warmed up.
