  • Don’t thaw them! Keep your breadsticks frozen until they go into the air fryer for optimal texture.
  • Give them ample space. Cook in a single layer and avoid crowding for the best results.
  • Keep an eye on the time. Different air fryers may require slight adjustments in cooking time, so keep an eye on them so they don’t get overdone.
  • Get flipping. Flip them over halfway so they cook evenly. However, if they have cheese, keep the cheese side up to prevent sticking.
  • Amp up the flavor. After cooking, brush them with melted butter for a richer taste. You can also sprinkle them with Parmesan or your favorite seasonings like ranch or everything bagel.

How to Store & Reheat

Don’t let those extra breadsticks go to waste. Here’s how to store and reheat them effectively.

To Store: Wrap up leftover breadsticks in plastic wrap, then tuck them into an air-tight container or storage bag. They’ll keep well in your fridge for up to 3 days.

To Freeze: Follow the same steps above, but place them in the freezer. They can be frozen for about 2 months. Just ensure they’re completely cool before storing.

To Reheat: Pop them back in the air fryer for a few minutes until they’re warm and crispy.
