Air Fried Mozzarella Sticks
The idea of mozzarella sticks anytime at a moments notice is pretty appealing isn't it? It's also a little bit scary how easy these are. You do need to think ahead a little bit, but once you have them chilling in the freezer, ready to go...oh my! And then there is that marinara sauce. If you haven't made that yet it is time. It goes with SO many things. I make it at least once a week on average.
I hope you love the cheese pull on these as much as we did. Just delish!
