Air Fryer Mozzarella Bites

Ingredients:

  • Small mozzarella balls (about 1 inch in diameter)
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 large eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs (preferably Italian seasoned)
  • Marinara sauce for dipping (optional)

Instructions:

  • Create mozzarella balls that are uniform in size, approximately 1 inch in diameter.
  • In three separate shallow bowls, create a coating station. Place the flour in the first bowl, the beaten eggs in the second bowl, and the breadcrumbs in the third bowl.
  • Take each mozzarella ball and roll it in the flour until evenly coated, ensuring the entire surface is covered.
  • Dip the floured mozzarella ball into the beaten eggs, making sure it's fully coated.
  • Roll the egg-coated mozzarella ball in the breadcrumbs, pressing gently to adhere the breadcrumbs to the surface.
  • Repeat this process for all mozzarella balls.
  • Place the coated mozzarella balls on a tray or plate and freeze for 20 minutes. This step is crucial for preventing the cheese from melting too quickly during cooking.
  • Preheat your air fryer to 400°F.
  • Once the mozzarella bites are sufficiently frozen, arrange them in a single layer in the air fryer basket, ensuring they are not touching.
  • Air fry at 400°F for 10 minutes or until the coating becomes golden brown and crispy. The cheese should be melted but still gooey inside.
  • Carefully remove the mozzarella bites from the air fryer and let them cool for a minute.
  • Serve the air fryer mozzarella bites hot with marinara sauce for dipping, if desired.

Game day: Party food recipes that are perfect for a crowd

Slow Cooker Buffalo Chicken Dip

Ingredients:

  • Nonstick cooking oil spray
  • 2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/2 cup hot sauce (adjust measurement for desired spiciness)
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions, plus extra for garnish
  • 2 tablespoons ranch seasoning mix
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups cooked shredded chicken (rotisserie chicken works well)

Instructions:

  • Lightly spray the slow cooker with nonstick cooking oil.
  • In the slow cooker layer the shredded mozzarella, ensuring an even distribution.
  • Spoon the sour cream over the mozzarella layer.
  • Drizzle the hot sauce evenly over the sour cream. Adjust the amount based on your desired level of spiciness.
  • Scatter chopped green onions over the hot sauce layer. Reserve a portion for garnishing later.
  • Sprinkle the ranch seasoning mix evenly over the green onions.
  • Distribute the softened cream cheese in chunks over the seasoning layer.
  • Spread the cooked shredded chicken evenly across the cream cheese layer.
  • Gently mix the ingredients in the slow cooker, ensuring an even distribution.
  • Set the slow cooker to high and cook for approximately 1.5 hours or until the edges are bubbly and the dip is heated through.

Air-Fried Chicken Wings

Ingredients:

  • 2 lbs chicken wings, split at joints, tips discarded
  • 1/2 cup corn starch
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Optional Seasonings (e.g. garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, cayenne pepper)

Instructions:

  • Ensure the chicken wings are dry by patting them with paper towels.
  • Place chicken wings in a large bowl.
  • Sprinkle corn starch over the wings, ensuring they’re evenly coated. Toss the wings in the bowl to fully coat each piece. The corn starch will help achieve a crispy exterior.
  • If desired, add your preferred seasonings to the wings. This could include garlic powder, onion powder, smoked paprika, cayenne pepper, or a seasoning blend of your choice.
  • Toss the wings again to distribute the seasonings evenly.
  • Preheat the air fryer to 380°F for a few minutes.
  • Place the coated and seasoned chicken wings in a single layer in the air fryer basket, ensuring they’re not overcrowded. If necessary, cook the wings in batches.
  • Cook the wings in the air fryer at 380°F for 30 minutes, turning them halfway through the cooking time. Adjust the time based on your air fryer model and the size of the wings. The wings should be golden brown and crispy when done.
  • To ensure the chicken wings are fully cooked, check for an internal temperature of 165°F using a meat thermometer.
  • Once cooked, transfer the wings to a serving platter.
  • Serve wings immediately with your favorite dipping sauces.
