This particular mozzarella stick recipe is a bit different from the variety you usually get at a restaurant.

I assure you, though, they are still perfectly dunkable and ooze that melty cheese you desire from a mozzarella stick.

The big difference between traditional mozzarella sticks and this air fryer mozzarella sticks recipe is that these mozzarella sticks aren't coated in breadcrumbs, they're wrapped in an egg roll wrapper. Yes, I said egg roll wrappers. Stay with me here, I promise they're delish!

You pop them in the air fryer instead of frying them in oil and the end result is a little bit crisp on the outside and hot and gooey on the inside. Cooking them mozzarella sticks the air fryer is way healthier than the traditional frying in oil method, which is a total bonus!

SHOULD I USE WONTON WRAPPERS OR EGG ROLL WRAPPERS FOR AIR FRYER MOZZARELLA STICKS?

So, egg roll wrappers and wonton wrappers are basically the same thing, except egg roll wrappers are much bigger. I like to use full-size string cheese and an egg roll wrapper to make these mozzarella sticks. Yes, the title does say wonton, but I liked the way wonton mozzarella sticks sounded better than egg roll mozzarella sticks.

IS IT EASY TO MAKE WONTON MOZZARELLA STICKS?

Making wonton mozzarella sticks couldn't be easier! The hardest part is making sure that the wrapper sides are folded in well and the egg roll wrapper is completely sealed so that all of the cheese doesn't ooze out during cooking.

  prep time: cook time: total time: 11 MIN 

INGREDIENTS


6 mozzarella cheese sticks
6 egg roll wrappers
olive oil spray
kosher salt


INSTRUCTIONS


1. Place a piece of string cheese near the bottom corner of the egg roll wrapper. Roll up halfway and carefully fold the sides toward center over the cheese. Dip your finger in water and trace the edges of the wrapper. Roll the remaining wrapper around the mozzarella stick. Repeat with remaining wrappers and cheese.

2. Place six of the mozzarella sticks in the air fryer and spray with olive oil spray. Sprinkle with kosher salt.

2. Air fry at 350 degrees for 3 minutes, flip, spray the other side with olive oil spray and sprinkle with kosher salt, then continue cooking for another 3 minutes. Serve with marinara sauce for dipping, if desired.


NOTES


Mozzarella sticks should not be touching each other when air frying.

Make sure your string cheese is cold, not room temperature when making this recipe.

If your cheese completely oozed out of your mozzarella stick during the cooking time, you either (1) cooked them too long, (2) didn't seal the corners and edges with water good enough, or (3) didn't use cold mozzarella cheese. The wrapper should have no cracks or holes. A small amount of cheese ooze from the end of the mozzarella stick is normal, but not all of the cheese should melt out. The mozzarella cheese should be just melted and the wrapper will be crispy on the edges and slightly chewy towards the middle.

Cooking time will vary between different models of air fryer. I use the Ninja 4-Quart Air Fryer.
