Things To Grab

- Air fryer
Place panko bread crumbs in large resealable plastic bag. Seal bag; crush slightly with rolling pin. Combine crushed panko and garlic powder in third bowl.
Coat cheese curds, a few at a time, in flour mixture. Then dip into eggs; shake off excess. Coat with crumb mixture. If coating does not adhere completely, dip curds in eggs and bread crumbs again. Place coated curds on baking sheet. Refrigerate until ready to air fry.
Preheat air fryer to 350 degrees according to manufacturer's directions. Working in batches, remove one batch of cheese curds at a time from refrigerator. Spray coated cheese curds on both sides with nonstick spray. Place in single layer in air fryer basket. Close air fryer and air-fry 4 to 6 minutes or until lightly browned and crisp, shaking basket halfway through. Remove from air fryer and repeat with remaining breaded cheese curds.
To serve, garnish with parsley and use ranch salad dressing for dipping.
