Cooking Instructions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
Crack Egg (2) in a mixing bowl.
Step 2
Add a pinch of table Salt (to taste) and beat together using a fork.
Step 3
Drop one of the small balls of Fresh Mozzarella Pearls (5) into the All-Purpose Flour (to taste) and roll it around coating it well.
Step 4
Dip the ball into the egg mix (covering it well) and then drop it into Breadcrumbs (to taste), rolling it around so that the crumbs stick to it.
Step 5
Dip it into the egg mix one more time and coat it with breadcrumbs again.
Step 6
Pour Vegetable Oil (to taste) in a small deep pot or pan and put it on the stove at a medium-high heat. To check if the oil is hot enough get a toothpick and dip the tip of it into the oil. If it starts to bubble around the toothpick, then the oil is hot enough for you to begin frying. If not, wait a little longer.
Step 7
Drop each ball of cheese into the oil and let it fry for a minute or until it becomes golden brown in colour.
Step 8
These divine fried cheese balls can be served on a bed of lettuce or on a wooden chopping board mixed with cold meats and cheese. And be sure to serve these up hot so that the cheese oozes out with every bite. Enjoy!
