These are his Buffalo Mozzarella Sticks and they are AMAZING and super easy to make! I mean really – if I can do it anyone can LOL

Here’s what you do!

Air Fryer Buffalo Mozzarella Recipe by Zach on Instagram

✅ Macros for each Mozzarella Stick:
85 Cals, 7.5g Carbs, 3g Fat, 7g Protein!

✳️ Ingredients:
24 Light Mozzarella Sticks (mine were 2.5g Fat per)
100g All-Purpose Flour
4g Garlic Powder
4g Sea Salt
120g Panko Bread Crumbs
2 Large Eggs
Franks Red Hot Buffalo Sauce

❇️ Directions:
1️⃣ Unpackage your mozzarella sticks and add to a freezer safe ziplock bag. Add to freezer overnight or till frozen.
2️⃣ Once frozen, add your all-purpose flour + garlic powder/sea salt and panko bread crumbs each to their own shallow dish. I used pyrex rectangle tupperware containers. Then add your 2 large eggs and buffalo sauce to a bowl and whisk till all are combined.
3️⃣ Now it’s time to coat these. I used my left hand as dry and right as wet. So line your dishes in the order of all-purpose flour, eggs/buffalo sauce, panko bread crumbs.
4️⃣ Take a frozen mozzarella stick, dip it into the flour covering all sides. Then dip it into the egg/buffalo sauce covering it like you did in the flour. Then dip in the panko doing the same process. You will need to do a double coat on these, so repeat this process one more time with the same mozzarella stick.
5️⃣ Add to a pan to hold till you add to your air fryer. Repeat this process for all 24 mozzarella sticks.
6️⃣ I had to do this in 3 batches because my air fryer could hold 8-9 sticks each time. So spray your air fryer tray with non-stick cooking spray and add your sticks. Spray the tops of the sticks with your cooking spray and then cook at 360 degrees F for 8 minutes total. And that’s it! Repeat for the rest of the mozzarella sticks and enjoy!

Now I didn’t cook all 24 of mine – just worked with what I was going to eat today because I am WEIRD about reheating things – but either way works for cooking and eating!

Tonight I am going to try his one pot mac and cheese – wish us luck and let me know if you try this Mozzarella recipe!
