Recipe Notes
Serve with marinara sauce. 

Key to Success #1 – Slice Your Own Mozzarella
If you absolutely must, you can use prepackaged mozzarella cheese sticks but I think the blocks of mozzarella cheese are much more delicious. Somehow, it seems fresher

To cut a block of mozzarella cheese, use a sharp knife like this one that has a flat blade. One benefit of this blade style is that even sticky foods like cheese will not stick to it.

Cut the block into 8 even pieces, about 1/2-inch thick. Then cut each piece in half again on the broad side.

Key to Success #2 – Double Dip Them
To cook Mozarella Sticks in the Air Fryer, it’s important to make sure the cheese is completely covered. First, dip the mozzarella into flour , coating it well. Then dip into the egg mixture. Finally, press the mozzarella stick into the bread crumbs, making sure the cheese is completely coated with the bread sticks.

I’ve found that starting with flour is a really good way to get the rest of the coating to stick. I also tried dipping with eggs – bread crumbs – egg – bread crumbs, but I lost a lot of the bread crumbs during the second egg dip.

Key to Success #3 – Freeze Before (Air) Frying
It’s very important to freeze the Mozzarella Sticks before you cook them in the Air Fryer. If you don’t freeze them, a lot of the cheese will leak out into the base of the Air Fryer before the coating gets crispy.

You can use any freezer-safe tray to freeze your Air Fryer Mozzarella Sticks. A lot of times I use my cutting board when I’m flash freezing something. I have a side-by-side fridge and freezer and a lot of my baking sheets will not fit in the freezer.

The main thing is to freeze the Mozzarella Sticks so that they are not touching one another. It would be a good idea to set them on waxed paper or parchment paper before freezing so that they don’t stick to the tray.

These Air Fryer Mozzarella Sticks turned out great. Everyone loved them.

Should I Buy The Nokia 4.2?
The 4.2 has shown that Nokia can still produce good hardware, and combined with the slick user interface on Android One it provides an enjoyable user experience. This fully featured modern handset produces consistently solid performance, with above average cameras and impressive battery life. 
However, it is let down by a low resolution screen, poor implementation of biometrics and some stubborn design choices.
