Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 slices edam cheese, each 1/3 inch thick (can use some other favourite cheese that has a simillar consistence as Edam cheese-blue cheese,...)
  • 14 cup flour
  • 1 cup breadcrumbs
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • vegetable oil (for frying)
  • milk
  • salt


  1. In the begining its good to wash the cheese so the flour would stick on the cheese better when dipping.
  2. Now take three plates and put flour into one of them, egg and a little bit of milk (just to make it more smooth) and a hint of salt to the second one and the breadcrubs to the third one.
  3. (you need to mix the egg with milk with a fork so you cant see the yolk, egg white and milk but a kind of orange liquid)
  4. Dip cheese slices into flour to form a light coating on all surfaces.
  5. Dip each slice into lightly beaten egg and coat completely.
  6. Dip each slice into breadcrumbs and coat completely, pat crumbs onto any areas that are not coated.
  7. If needed repeat the point 4. and 5.- tastes better.
  8. Pour oil into deep frying pan to a depth of 1/2 inch. Heat to 375 degrees F.
  9. Carefully place slices in pan and fry on one side until golden-brown.
  10. Turn and fry on the other side until golden brown. Pay attention so the cheese doesnt get out from the "coat"!
  11. Serve with french fries and tatar sauce/ketchup.
