1 Point Mozzarella Stick


  • ¾ Packet of Shake n Bake Coating
  • 1.5 tablespoons of Italian Seasoning (opt for Mrs. Dash for a salt-conscious choice)
  • 1 Egg
  • 12 Light Mozzarella String Cheese Sticks


  1. Freezing Preparation: Begin by cutting the string cheese sticks in half and freezing them until solid, approximately two hours.
  2. Coating Process: Once frozen, combine Shake n Bake seasoning and Italian Seasoning in a bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk the egg until well-combined. Dip each frozen string cheese piece into the egg, followed by the breading mixture.
  3. Air Frying: Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees. Place the coated mozzarella sticks in the air fryer basket, ensuring they are not overcrowded. Air fry for 5-8 minutes, keeping a vigilant eye to prevent overcooking and ensure the cheese remains encased in its crispy breading.
  4. Serve and Enjoy: Once cooked to golden perfection, serve these mouthwatering mozzarella sticks with your favorite dipping sauce or enjoy them as they are – a perfectly crunchy, cheesy snack.
