There are a number of other Brazilian Cheese Puff Recipes out there but most of them use a starch and Parmesan cheese. This is a great variation that is a bit easier to make than the traditional puffs.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 large egg whites
  • 12 teaspoon salt
  • 12-1 cup swiss cheese, grated
  • 12 cup dry breadcrumbs
  • oil (for frying)
  • 12 cup parsley, finely chopped

Directions

  1. Beat egg whites and salt until stiff.
  2. Add enough cheese to allow mixture to be handled as dough. Roll into balls the size of a walnut. Coat with bread crumbs.
  3. Fry in hot oil, drain on paper towels.
  4. Sprinkle with parsley and serve hot.

Having no experience with making traditional cheese puffs I have nothing to compare to, they are easy but rather time consuming. Not sure if I perhaps I didn't beat the egg whites enough maybe but I had trouble getting it to handle like dough with the cheese so added a couple tablespoons white flour and that did the trick. I mixed old cheddar and swiss together and used corn flake crumbs instead of bread crumbs as that's what I had on hand. Two thumbs up all around once we had them served up with dinner and will definitely be making again for finger food night. I don't think I'll ever buy cheese sticks again. Thanks for the yummy recipe Nyteglori! Made and enjoyed for team Mischief Makers - ZWT #7.
