How to Cook Mozzarella Sticks in Powerxl Air Fryer

Cooking Mozzarella sticks in a PowerXL Air Fryer is a quick and easy way to get crispy and delicious cheesy snacks without the need for deep frying. Here’s a simple recipe to guide you:

The Ingredients you need to make Mozzarella Sticks in Powerxl Air Fryer:

Cook mozzarella sticks with the following ingredients in a Powerxl Air Fryer to achieve the mouth watering tast:

  1. Mozzarella sticks (store-bought or homemade)
  2. All-purpose flour
  3. Eggs, beaten
  4. Bread crumbs (seasoned or plain)
  5. Cooking spray or oil (optional)

Instructions:

Here are all the simple guidelines for preparing mozzarella sticks in a Powerxl air fryer:

Step 1: Preheat the Air Fryer:

Turn on your PowerXL Air Fryer and preheat it to 400°F (200°C). Preheating helps achieve a crispy exterior on the Mozzarella sticks.

Step 2: Prepare the Mozzarella Sticks:

If using store-bought Mozzarella sticks, follow the instructions on the package. If making homemade Mozzarella sticks, cut the mozzarella cheese into sticks or use pre-cut mozzarella sticks.

Step 3: Set up the Dredging Station:

Prepare three shallow bowls. In the first bowl, place all-purpose flour. In the second bowl, add beaten eggs. In the third bowl, place the bread crumbs.

Step 4: Dredge the Mozzarella Sticks:

Take a mozzarella stick and coat it with flour, shaking off any excess. Next, dip the stick into the beaten eggs, ensuring it’s completely coated. Finally, roll the Mozzarella stick in the bread crumbs, pressing gently to adhere the crumbs to the cheese.

Repeat the process for each Mozzarella stick, arranging them on a plate or tray.

Optional: For an extra crispy result, you can repeat the egg and bread crumb coating process, creating a double coating for each Mozzarella stick.

Step 5: Air Frying:

Once the Air Fryer is preheated, lightly grease the Air Fryer basket with cooking spray or a little oil (if desired) to prevent sticking. Place the coated Mozzarella sticks in the Air Fryer basket in a single layer. Avoid overcrowding to ensure even cooking.

Step 6: Cooking:

Cook the Mozzarella sticks in the Air Fryer at 400°F (200°C) for about 6-8 minutes. Cooking times may vary, so keep an eye on them to prevent overcooking. You may need to cook them in batches if your Air Fryer has limited space.

Step 7: Check for Doneness:

The Mozzarella sticks should turn golden brown and crispy on the outside while the cheese inside becomes gooey and melted.

Step 8: Serve:

Once the Mozzarella sticks are ready, carefully remove them from the Air Fryer basket and transfer them to a serving dish. Serve them with marinara sauce, ranch dressing, or any dipping sauce of your choice.

Enjoy your homemade crispy Mozzarella sticks straight from the PowerXL Air Fryer! They are perfect as an appetizer or a tasty snack for any gathering or movie night.
