These are a quick and delicious appetizer that are always served on Superbowl..they are so good! I whipped up a single batch for the kids...had to hurry and take a picture before they were gone...

I normally triple the batch...one makes about 14 balls.

Prep:

10 Min

Cook:

5 Min

Ingredients

1/2 c
ricotta cheese
1/4 c
shredded, mozzarella
3/4 c
italian bread crumbs or italian panko crumbs
1
egg white
pinch cayenne pepper
1/4 tsp
each - basil, parsley, garlic powder, oregano
salt and pepper to taste
1 Tbsp
flour
oil for deep frying
your choice dipping sauce

Directions Step-By-Step

1
In a medium bowl, mix the cheeses, spices. Set aside
2
Beat the egg white till stiff, blend it into the cheese mixture. Add the flour, blend.

This will be a loose mixture, but it comes together when rolling in the crumbs.
3
Spoon out about a teaspoonful, roll into bread crumbs and drop into hot oil.

You can test the oil with a small amount of mixture, if it sizzles it's ready.

These only take a matter of second to brown..watch not to over cook.
4
Serve with your dipping sauces.


Enjoy!!
