  • 1 pound (450g) store-bought frozen mozzarella sticks


  • Preheat the air fryer to 400F / 200C.
  • Line your air fryer basket with frozen mozzarella sticks, cooking in batches if needed.
  • Air fry for 6-8 minutes or until they are golden brown and the interior is warmed through.
  • Served on their own or with the dipping sauce of your choice.


  • Don’t crowd the basket of the air fryer. You need to leave plenty of space between each cheese cook for maximum crispiness and even cooking.
  • No extra oil is needed for this recipe.
  • Watch closely as you near the end of cooking time. You do not want the cheese to start oozing out!
Air fryer temperatures can vary depending on the make and model. I recommend starting with less cook time, checking for doneness, then adding more time as needed.
