Fried cheese balls

A super simple recipe that is surprisingly delicious. Remember to allow your egg white to come to room temperature before beating it.

What you’ll need:

  • 1 egg white
  • 2 c grated parmesan cheese

Beat egg white until stiff and tripled in volume. Mix together 1/3 of the beaten egg white and 1 cup of the parmesan cheese. Beat well. Alternate mixing in the remaining egg white and cheese until it is all mixed together. Drop marble sized balls off the end of a teaspoon and fry @ 365 degrees until lightly browned. Makes about 3 dozen cheese balls.

Cost:
eggs (18 count) -$1.47
parmesan cheese – $2.88
Total – $2.96
