Cuisine: German
Serves: 24
Ingredients
  • 12 Ozs. Morel leek jack cheese, cut into 24 triangles.
  • 2 Cups Rye bread crumbs (about 4 rolls, dried and processed into crumbs)
  • 1 Cup Flour
  • 2 Lg. Eggs, beaten
  • 3 Cups Vegetable oil
Instructions
  1. Transfer rye bread crumbs, flour and eggs into 3 pie plates or shallow bowls. Starting with the flour, roll one cheese triangle into flour, then egg, then crumbs. Dip in egg again, then into crumbs, creating a double coat. Transfer to a baking sheet or container.
  2. Repeat process with remaining cheese triangles.
  3. Freeze triangles until ready to fry.
  4. Heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat to 350 degrees.
  5. Carefully place 4-5 frozen cheese triangles in hot oil and fry for 2-3 minutes or until dark brown and cheese has melted (cheese will start to ooze out of triangles).
  6. Transfer to a paper towel lined baking sheet to drain.
  7. Repeat with remaining cheese triangles. Serve, or keep warm in oven.
  8. Serve with German Onion Soup.
Notes
To make serving easier, pre-fry all cheese triangles, then freeze until about 20 min before serving. Place triangles single layer on a baking sheet as needed and bake at 425 degrees for about 10-12 minutes or until cheese barely starts to come out of triangles. Remove from oven and serve.
