In This Recipe
Directions
  1. Combine both cheese into a medium bowl, prep your egg and breadcrumbs (about 1 cup should do the job) feel free to add some parsley to the breadcrumbs like I did. Roll mozzarella and cheddar together to form small balls.
  2. Once you have formed the cheese into little balls, heat a pan with enough oil to fry on medium heat.
  3. Once the oil is hot, toss balls in egg, coat in breadcrumbs, toss in egg once again and finish with breadcrumbs. Repeat this step with all your mozzarella balls, once you’ve completed this step, add balls to the oil and cook for 1 minute of each side or until golden brown. (If you do not want to fry these, you can add them to a preheated oven at 180° C/350° F/Gas Mark 4 for 5-10 minutes).
  4. Remove from pan, add to a plate lined with kitchen roll to remove excess oil, add to your favourite pasta or eat as a snack and enjoy!
