gluten-free mozzarella balls

The worst part about being gluten free? No mozzarella sticks! Luckily, ground-up Mikey’s Original Grain-Free English Muffins are the perfect substitute for traditional bread crumbs. Use your air fryer for a lower calorie crispy snack.


  • 1 box Mikey’s Original Grain-Free English Muffins
  • 1 cup canola or other neutral oil
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 small ball fresh mozzarella, cut into 1-inch chunks
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 4 leaves fresh basil, julienned
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • ¼ cup shaved parmesan cheese
  • 1 cup marinara sauce, for serving


  1. Toast English muffins in toaster oven according to the package directions. Then, using a food processor, grind English muffins into crumbs.
  2. Heat oil in a nonstick pan over medium heat. In a small bowl, crack and whisk eggs. Coat mozzarella chunks in cornstarch, egg mixture and bread crumbs.
  3. Place mozzarella in pan and fry until crispy, rotating periodically so that all sides brown evenly. Garnish with basil, oregano, and parmesan. Serve with marinara sauce.
