These deep-fried super-cheesy bites are insanely good. Strong blue cheese and fruit jam enclosed in American cheese slices then crumbed a deep-fried results in the most amazing sweet savory flavor and texture combination.
Ingredients
  • 16 Slices American processed cheese
  • 3 Heaping tablespoons fruit preserve / jam
  • 80g Creamy blue cheese
  • 250ml Fine bread crumbs
  • 250ml All-purpose flour
  • 2 Eggs, beaten
  • Oil for deep-frying
Instructions
  1. You will need 16 slices of American cheese. For those not in North America, this the processed cheese slices that come individually wrapped in plastic sheets.
  2. In addition, measure out 3 heaping tablespoon of a good quality fruit preserve and open a block of creamy blue cheese.
  3. You will also need an 8cm, or just more than 3 inch gow gee press. These are readily available on eBay and Amazon for next to nothing.
  4. To start assembling, open a cheese slice and keeping the plastic wrapper in place, use the back of the press to cut out the circle then position the circle over the press.
  5. Place ⅔ of a teaspoon of the preserve in the center of the cheese, followed by a small piece of blue cheese.
  6. Grab the handles of the press and close this just firmly enough to seal the edges of the cheese. If you press to hard, the cheese will split.
  7. Continue until all of the cheesy bites are formed.
  8. To coat the bites, measure out a cup of all-purpose flour, a cup of fine bread crumbs, and whisk 2 eggs.
  9. Sprinkle a layer of breadcrumbs over a large platter. This is where the coated cheesy bites will set, and the crumbs prevent the coating from sticking to the platter and getting damaged.
  10. Working with cheesy bite at a time, dredge the bite in the flour.
  11. Transfer this to the egg to wet all of the flour.
  12. Then it's into the bread crumbs to get a good solid coating all over.
  13. Transfer this to the platter to set, and continue with the remaining pockets.
  14. Allow the coating to set for 20 minutes.
  15. Half fill a large pan with oil and heat this to 180c or 350f.
  16. Carefully drop the cheesy bites into the oil and fry these for 3 minutes, turning over halfway through.
  17. As the first cheesy bites are ready, use a slotted spoon to remove them from oil, and drain any excess oil on kitchen paper.
  18. Serve the bites immediately accompanied with whipped cream and a good dessert wine.
  19. And there we have it, a crunchy, creamy, sweet and savory taste of heaven.
