Preheat air fryer to 400 degrees. Spray fryer basket with nonstick cooking spray. Set aside.
Our better-for-you take uses the air fryer instead of a deep fat fryer for crunchy and ooey-gooey cheese curds.

|1 c. Hy-Vee all-purpose flour|
|2 Hy-Vee large eggs, beaten|
|1 ½ c. Hy-Vee Italian panko bread crumbs|
|Desired dipping sauce, for serving|
Things To Grab
- Air fryer

Cut or break cheese into large chunks. Place flour, eggs, and panko in separate shallow bowls. Dip cheese, into flour, then eggs, then panko bread crumbs, shaking off excess between each ingredient. Repeat dipping process to create a double coating.
