Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 slices eidam cheese (thick slices, about 3/4-inch thick)
  • 6 tablespoons flour
  • 6 tablespoons breadcrumbs
  • 3 eggs


  1. Beat eggs in one plate, sift flour in another one, and place breadcrumbs in a third plate.
  2. Take the square slices of Eidam cheese (they should be 1.5 to 2 cm or 3/4" thick) and put each slice into the flour, then immediately into the egg and then straight into the breadcrumbs.
  3. Once the cheese is coated, put cooking oil into a skillet and heat it. When the oil is hot and ready, place cheese into it and fry on both sides.
  4. Make sure that you don't leave the cheese in the oil for too long, as it could leak out of its coating. The frying is very quick.
  5. Serve with boiled potatoes and tartar sauce.
