1/4 Photos of Cheese Fritters
I learnt to make these at college, and have been making them ever since. They are perfect for drinks nibbles, or as part of a larger snack buffet. I use them for footie snacks with lots of dips-the only complaint I get is that I never make enough!! Servings are approximations, as it depends on the size you make them.

- 1Bring the water and butter to a boil in a thick bottomed pan. Remove from heat.
- 2Add the flour, beating it in with a wooden spoon.
- 3Return to a gentle heat, and mix well, until the mixture starts to leave the sides of the pan. Remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly.
- 4Gradually add the eggs, beating well. Add the cheese and seasonings.
- 5Using a spoon, scoop walnut sized pieces of mixture and deep fry in hot fat (185 degrees), or use two spoons and 'quenelle' them into cigar shapes by transferring from one spoon to another.
- 6Allow to cook for approx 10 minutes. Drain and serve with an added sprinkling of parmesan.
