I first tried "fried cheese" at a restaurant. It was good, but I thought I could make it better. This has been a hit every time I make it!

How to Make Fried Cheese

Step-by-Step

  • 1In a large mixing bowl, combine ricotta, mozzarella, Asiago, and Parmesan cheeses. Add the egg and Italian seasoning and mix well with clean hands.
  • 2In a medium-sized skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. While the oil is heating, take tablespoonsfuls of the ricotta mixture and form into a 1 to 2-inch balls. Lightly roll the cheese balls into the Italian bread crumbs and then lightly into the Panko bread crumbs.
  • 3Carefully place the cheese balls into the oil in small batches. Do not overcrowd the skillet. Let cook for about 1 to 2 minutes, then carefully flip the cheese balls over with a slotted metal spoon. Once the cheese balls have a golden brown color, remove them using the slotted spoon and place on a paper-towel lined plate to drain excess grease. Serve warm with warm marinara sauce.
