How to Make Fried Cheese


  • 1In a medium saucepan, heat the oil to 325 degrees. Line a plate with paper towels.
  • 2In a shallow bowl, whisk the eggs and milk thoroughly. In another shallow bowl,combine panko and italian bread crumbs together.
  • 3Dredge the sideof an egg roll wrapper in the egg wash. place the wrapper egg wash side up on a work surface and put 2 salami slices into the center of the wrapper, toward the edge closest to you.
    Place 1 cheese stick on top of salami. Roll wrapper edge closer to you over filling. Tuck in the ends and continue to roll until you have a egg roll shape.
  • 4Dredge the rolled wrapper in the egg wash again and thoroughly coat in breadcrumbs. Repeat with the remaining ingredients. (the roll can be frozen for future use at this point.)
  • 5Add 1 to 2 rolls to the oil at a time and cook 2 to 3 minutes, until golden brown. Be careful not to overcook them or cook them on too high temperature, as the wrap may explode. transfer the fried cheese rolls to the paper towel-lined plate and serve immediately with marinara sauce. Garnish with parmesan and parsley, if desired.
