Crispy Cheese Balls Ingredients
- 250 ml/8 fl oz milk
- 250 g/9 oz plain flour
- 75 g/3 oz butter
- 250 g/9 oz Cheddar cheese, grated
- 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 3 eggs, beaten
- vegetable oil for deep-frying
Crispy Cheese Balls Recipe
Warm the milk in a large heavy saucepan over a medium heat, stirring constantly while gradually adding the flour.
Add the butter and, once the mixture has thickened, remove from the heat and mix in the cheese.
Add salt to taste, the cayenne and the beaten eggs.
Allow the mixture to cool. It should now be thick enough to shape into about 24 balls.
Heat the oil in a deep heavy saucepan until very hot. Deep-fry the balls in batches of about six until they are golden brown.
Remove from the pan with a slotted spoon, drain on kitchen paper and serve immediately.
