  • Line a baking sheet or similar flat rimmed board with parchment paper and set this aside while you work. If your freezer does not have room for this baking sheet, use something flat that will fit, like a plate.

  • Use two shallow bowls to make a dredging system. In the first bowl place the beaten egg. In the second bowl place the remaining ingredients (everything but the cheese and the egg).

  • Start by dredging the first cheese stick in the egg, covering it well. Then run it through the second bowl with the dry ingredients. Flick off the excess dry ingredients and place the cheese stick on the prepped baking sheet. Repeat this process until all of the sticks have been covered with the ingredients. Do not overlap the sticks, use an additional sheet instead. Then place the sheet with the cheese sticks in the to freezer. Freeze for at least 15 minutes.

  • When you are ready to air fry your cheese sticks, spray the fryer basket with nonstick and preheat the fryer to 370. Place 5-6 sticks into the fryer taking care to not overlap them. Fry for 5-7 minutes or until done. Repeat the process until all of your sticks are done.

Recipe Notes

As mentioned, you will need to use a low carb all purpose flour instead of regular all purpose flour. When choosing your low carb flour alternative, please make sure that it is not a baking mix as a baking mix will have additional ingredients added to it. Also, if you are using a gluten free option (such as almond flour), you may need to add an extra egg or some kind of a binder.
My choice for low carb flour is Carbalose flour.
Also needed are low carb bread crumbs.
You can find low carb bread crumbs or alternatives for low carb bread crumbs online.
