Mastering Air Fried Babybel Cheese


When it comes to elevating your snack game, Air Fried Babybel Cheese reigns supreme. This irresistible TikTok sensation has captivated taste buds worldwide with its combination of creamy Babybel cheese encased in a delectably crunchy crust. Whether you're looking for a quick treat or a show-stopping appetizer, this guide will equip you with everything you need to become a Babybel cheese aficionado.



Ingredients for Success


To embark on your journey to culinary greatness with Air Fried Babybel Cheese, gather the following ingredients:


Babybel Cheese: Start with 6 to 8 Babybel cheeses. This quantity is ideal for a small group or if you're planning to enjoy them over a couple of days.

All-Purpose Flour: You'll need about 1/2 cup of all-purpose flour. This is sufficient for coating the Babybel cheeses evenly.

Large Eggs: Use 2 large eggs. They will act as the binding agent for the breadcrumbs to stick to the cheese.

Italian Seasoned Breadcrumbs: Approximately 1 cup of Italian seasoned breadcrumbs is needed. This amount ensures each cheese is fully coated for that perfect crunch.



Crafting the Perfect Cheese Bites


Follow these steps to create your Air Fried Babybel Cheese bites:

  1. Preparation: Begin by removing the outer wrapper and wax packaging from each Babybel cheese piece and set them aside.

  2. Dipping Stations: Set up three dipping stations using shallow bowls. In the first bowl, place the all-purpose flour. In the second, whisk the large eggs together. Finally, in the third bowl, pour out the Italian seasoned breadcrumbs.

  3. Coating the Cheese: Start by dipping each piece of cheese into the flour until it's lightly coated. Next, immerse the flour-coated cheese into the whisked eggs, ensuring a thorough coating for the breadcrumbs to adhere. Finally, dip the cheese into the Italian breadcrumbs, ensuring an even and generous coating. Feel free to double-dip for an extra crispy finish.

  4. Air Frying Magic: Gently spritz both sides of the cheese with olive oil spray to facilitate browning. Place the coated cheese pieces in the air fryer basket, ensuring they don't touch or overlap. If your air fryer has limited space, work in batches.

  5. Cooking Time: Set your air fryer to 380 degrees Fahrenheit and cook for 8-10 minutes. To ensure uniform browning of the coating, remember to turn the cheese halfway through the cooking time. Once the coating achieves a golden brown hue, remove the cheese bites from the air fryer, ready to enjoy while warm and gooey on the inside.
