Air Fryer Cheese Sticks are a dream come true! These mozzarella bites are crispy on the outside, with perfectly melted gooey cheese on the inside, and they pack an extra flavor punch from the pepperoni.
Learn how to make these mozzarella sticks without losing any cheese during the cooking process and NO need to freeze either!
THE SECRET TO KEEPING THE CHEESE INSIDE
Wait for it…. wonton wrappers! Yes, yes, yes! It works every time!
A lot of mozzarella cheese stick recipes recommend you double coat the cheese with bread crumbs or freeze the cheese stick for hours before cooking. Totally not necessary with my recipe for Air Fryer Cheese Sticks.
Start with a wonton wrapper, top it with two pepperoni pieces, a stick of mozzarella cheese, wrap it all up tight and coat it in seasoned bread crumbs. It’s that easy and there is NO freezing necessary! (Pepperoni is optional, and WAY worth adding.)
