Recipe: Fried Gouda

Reread that title line. Mmm, that sure does sound delicious! I wish I still had some, but they went pretty fast. That is more than fine with me. Nobody likes to take home a full dish of food that wasn't even touched. We have all seen those lonely dishes sitting there in a group setting. Sure, it might have an occasional pity spoonful taken out of it, but we all know. So, don't be that person. Don't have that dish that just sits there waiting. Make easy cheesy appetizers that everyone will love.

Some items needed are Gouda (or any type of firm cheese), oil, flour, bread crumbs, eggs, seasoning, water, and hot sauce.

Heat oil in a fryer or pot on stove, ensuring it is 365° F. If using pot on stove, then it should hold at least 4 cups of vegetable oil with space still left over at the top.

Place a 1/2 cup of all purpose flour in a shallow plate/bowl and in a different shallow plate/bowl place 1/2 cup of bread crumbs.

In a bowl, combine 2 large eggs, 1 tablespoon water, 1 teaspoon hot sauce, and 1/2 teaspoon seasoning and mix all together.

Cut about 8 ounces of Gouda into, roughly, 24 bite size pieces. Skewer a cheese bite and roll it in the flour, then dip it in the egg. Repeat, one more time. Then, roll it in the bread crumbs.

Fry just a few at a time, no need to put all 24 pieces in there at once, it does not end well. Brown the pieces for about 2 minutes, remove, and drain on a paper towel. If it is just "too" greasy, the temperature is too low. Bump it up by 5 and try again.

Serve with little dipping bowls of Ranch, mustard, or salsa,
