Deep fry cheese balls

Inside Cheese balls Autumn is almost finish and we are in the middle of the year, I can’t believe how fast time runs I am sorry if I don’t visit your blog these days, but as I told you before I am baking and cooking. For worse my refrigerator broke yesterday. I really believe in Murphy’s Law. These cheese balls are very simple and easy to make. Are perfect for appetizer and you can enjoy this recipe all the year. Deep fried cheese balls


1 cups milk 1 cup water 2 cups flour ½ cup butter 1 tablespoon oregano Salt and nutmeg 300g mozzarella 1 egg and ½ cup milk to coat Breadcrumbs Oil for fry

In a medium saucepan, combine all ingredients less flour. Bring to a boil, stirring until butter melts completely. Reduce heat to low, and add flour and salt. Stir vigorously until mixture leaves the sides of the pan and begins to form a stiff ball. Remove from heat. Cut the mozzarella into bite-size pieces. Roll the mix in balls and fill the center with mozzarella Beat the eggs thoroughly. Use milk to thin the mixture. Spoon the balls into egg mixture and coat generously Use a spoon to drop the balls onto a plate of breading mixture. The breading mixture may be seasoned or Italian bread crumbs or a pre-packaged breading mix. Add a little grated Parmesan cheese or Italian seasoning, like garlic or thyme, to the breading mixture, if desired. Coat the balls completely with the breading mixture; use hands if necessary. Pour oil to a depth of 1 1/2 - 2 inches deep fat fryer. Heat to 370 degrees. Fry cheese ball about 8 at a time until golden brown on all sides. Remove with slotted spoon and drain on paper towels.

Oh no! I hope you were able to accomplish much. I am sure the cheese balls (maybe served with a tomato sauce? Yum!) would make all problems go away!
