It's the age-old question. Mozzarella sticks or onion rings? No need to choose! With this recipe, you can have both at once!


  • 1 onion
  • 2 cups of milk
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice
  • Mozzarella sticks
  • 1/2 cup cornmeal
  • 1/2 cup corn flakes
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 2 eggs


  1. Slice the onion.
  2. Pour the milk and lemon juice into a glass dish or shallow bowl.
  3. Soak onion rings in the milk mixture for 1 hour.
  4. Slice mozzarella cheese into quarters.
  5. Place the cheese inside of a large onion ring, then add a smaller onion ring to the middle. The cheese should be tucked between the two onion rings.
  6. Mix together cornmeal, cornflakes, and flour in a bowl. In a separate bowl, whisk the eggs.
  7. Dip the onion rings into the egg, then coat thoroughly in the crumb mixture.
  8. Air fry at 400° for 5 minutes. Flip the rings, then cook five additional minutes.
  9. Enjoy!
