These cheese puffs are golden brown and delicious. So puffy, they will melt in your mouth.
INGREDIENTS (for 1 servings):
- 2 egg whites
- 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese
- 5 cups oil for deep frying
Heat oil in a heavy pot or deep-fryer to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C).
In a medium glass or metal bowl, whip egg whites until they just hold a stiff peak. Fold in Parmesan cheese until evenly distributed. Form level teaspoons of batter into balls.
Fry balls a few at a time, turning once until crisp and golden. Using a slotted spoon, remove puffs from oil and place onto paper towels to drain.
We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount may vary depending on cook time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.
