Bacon Cheese Fritters
  • 2 c shredded mozzarella (smoked is very nice)
  • 8 slices of crisped bacon
  • ½ c Italian bread crumbs + healthy grating of parmigiano-reggiano
  • 2 beaten eggs
  • Egg wash: 2 beaten eggs + 2 tb cream/whole milk
  • 2 c panko bread crumbs
  1. Combine your ingredients together in a bowl
  2. Roll a spoonful or so of your mixture into a ball
  3. Dip your ball into your egg-wash and roll into your panko
  4. Chill all your prepared fritters in the fridge for at least 30 min
  5. Fry in batches (the oil should be at 360 or so--a fry thermometer helps)
  6. Retrieve your fritters when they've reached a deep, golden brown. Remember not to overcrowd the oil and to leave at least 2 inches or so on top in your heavy bottomed pan.
