Ham and Havarti Cheese Sticks

Ham and Havarti Cheese Sticks

Creamy Arla Havarti Cheese Wrapped with thin sliced honey ham and parmesan panko breading, then air fried to crispy perfection.


  • Using Arla Havarti Snack Cheese unwrap 12 pieces next to each other
  • Slice each piece of ham in half lengthwise and wrap it around the cheese. You can tuck it into the layers so that it's nice and snug.
  • Make your dredging station. Grab three shallow dishes. Fill the first with the all purpose flour, salt, pepper, and paprika. Whisk to combine. In the second dish, whisk the eggs with salt and pepper. In the third dish, whisk the italian breadcrumbs, panko, and parmesan.
  • Dip the cheese stick into the flour, then the egg, then the panko mixture. Make sure that you fully coat with each layer and then shake off the excess.
  • Press the panko into the cheese stick to make sure it sticks and creates a thick coating.
  • Put cheese sticks onto a parchment lined sheet pan and freeze for 15 minutes. Then repeat the coating process to create a double coating. Then freeze another 15 minutes.
  • Preheat the air fryer to 400 degrees. Spray the cheese sticks with canola spray, then air fry for 10 minutes.
  • Serve with your choice of dip: ranch, bbq, or marinara are crowd pleasers!
