Hit the pin button below, if like me you LOVE mozzarella sticks and couldn’t imagine party time without them!!!

Yes. I am a cheese addict.

If there was AA for cheese addicts, I would be sat in group chat now blaming my mother for my addiction. I would tell the group that it started in the womb and that I had no chance of NOT being addicted to cheese.

That my mother would squirt tubes of primula cheese in her mouth while waddling like a duck around Tesco’s.

Or how she used to save up her pocket money to buy cheese. Or that she would be a size zero if bread and cheese combined with butter and wine didn’t exist.

I am not a big wine fan, as I am almost tee total. But PLEASE GIVE ME MORE CHEESE. Or I should say PLEASE MAKE CHEESE ZERO CALORIES. Then I could eat it forever and ever.

Top of my list of cheesy favourite treats must be frozen mozzarella sticks. I know it’s the lazy way to cook air fryer mozzarella sticks and that we should always make them from scratch, but this is lazy Christmas season when we want to quickly throw our food in the air fryer and impress our guests.

Then when they say our mozzarella sticks are out of this world, you can smile back at them knowing your little secret!

No matter what you call them where you live, note that they are fantastic in the air fryer. Just as good as when you buy mozzarella sticks from Burger King, if not better.

Quantity. You can cook up to 20 frozen mozzarella sticks at once in your air fryer. We used our Philips Air Fryer XL for this recipe and here is our Philips Air Fryer XL Review.
Preheat. Its essential that you don’t do a preheat. As if the air fryer is already hot the cheese will cook too quick and break out.

    I cooked the full box of sticks, about 16 i think but they were really small and it cooked them perfectly, mine is a different type of air fryer to yours but i used the same time.
