Air Fryer Mozzarella Bites
1 egg white(s), large, lightly beaten
Part-skim mozzarella cheese
3 oz, cut into 12 pieces
Jarred fat-free marinara sauce
¼ cup(s), warmed
- Place the flour and the egg white in two separate small shallow bowls. Combine the panko, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, and salt in another shallow bowl. Place the cheese pieces in the bowl with the flour, and toss well to coat. Dip the cheese pieces in the egg white, turning to coat. Place the cheese pieces in the panko mixture, turning to coat. Arrange the coated cheese pieces on a plate. Place in the freezer for 20 minutes.
- Preheat an air fryer, if necessary, to 400°F. Line the air fryer basket with parchment paper. Arrange the cheese pieces in the basket, spacing them apart as much as possible so they’re not touching. Coat the cheese pieces with cooking spray. Air-fry at 400°F until the coating is lightly browned and crisp, 5 to 6 minutes. Serve with the marinara sauce.
- Serving size: 3 mozzarella bites and 1 tbsp marinara
