Place the sticks in the pre-heated and sprayed air fryer basket, making sure they’re not touching each other.Spray each stick lightly with cooking oil.Cook them on air fry mode at 400F (200C) for 6 minutes, or until golden brown and crispy. Be sure to turn them on the other side halfway (after 3 minutes) during cooking to make sure the sticks cook evenly.


Make Ahead of Time and Freeze Them for Later

Did you know that you can make the Mozzarella sticks ahead of time and freeze them for later? First, prepare the mozzarella sticks as per this recipe. Once they’re ready, lay them out on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and pop them in the freezer.

After they’ve frozen (about 3 hours), gently transfer them to a freezer-safe container, label with the date, and store them for up to 4 months.

When you’re ready to eat them, simply preheat your air fryer to 400°F, place the frozen mozzarella sticks in the greased air fryer basket or tray, spray them with cooking spray, and cook for about 6 to 8 minutes until they’re crispy and golden brown. Don’t forget to turn them on the other side halfway.
