Air Fryer Mozzarella Sticks
1 large egg
1/2 - 1 Tablespoon of Grilling Gods Slice of Heaven Rub
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup panko breadcrumbs
8 whole milk (or low-fat) mozzarella sticks
1/2 teaspoon milk
Line a rimmed baking sheet with wax paper. Lightly beat the egg & milk in a wide, shallow bowl.
Combine the Slice of Heaven rub, and breadcrumbs in a second wide, shallow bowl.
Dip a mozzarella stick into the beaten egg and coat it completely. Dip the stick into the bowl with the breadcrumbs and coat completely. This will be messy. It’s okay.
Transfer to a wax paper-lined rimmed baking sheet and line them up so they are not touching. Freeze for 1/2 hour minimum, 1 hour maximum.
Pull the mozzarella sticks out of the freezer, dip them into the egg and then the breadcrumb mix, and then freeze them for another 1/2 hour minimum, 1 hour maximum.
Set your air fryer to 390°F. Place a sheet of aluminum foil in the air fryer basket and add the mozzarella sticks, spray with a nonstick cooking spray. Air fry the mozzarella sticks (in batches if desired or necessary, as space permits) for 6 to 8 minutes until the exterior is golden and crispy.
