These Crispy Mozzarella Bites are delicious right out of the fryer (or air fryer) but also store surprisingly well! They make a great addition to your kiddo lunch box or just for snacks on the go!
Easy Snack Pack:
1) Add flour, egg, and breadcrumbs to three separate bowls. Cut each cheese stick into three even pieces. Toss the mozzarella sticks in flour to coat, then transfer to the egg. Coat each piece well so no flour is showing. Finally, transfer to breadcrumbs. Ensure the breadcrumbs cover entirely the cheese sticks.
2) Place breaded cheese sticks on a rack and freeze for at least two hours or well in advance of frying.
For Air Frying: Add half of the bites (or as many as you need) to the basket for the air fryer and spray them lightly with non-stick spray. Air fry the bites for 5 minutes at 350˚ F.
For Deep Frying: Heat 1 quart of oil to 350˚ F. Add bites and fry for 4 minutes until they are golden brown.
Serve crispy mozzarella bites with ranch dressing or marinara along with fruit and vegetables.
