From Caribbean choice, these little gems are so easy to make & the taste is not too overpowering so it's a great recipe for kids too, my toddler gobbled these up! I found when I made them that the flour made it hard for the cheese to stick so I did half with flour & the rest without. I baked these in the oven to cut down on fat and I think if baking then the flour step is not needed

Ingredients Nutrition

  3. Fry in heated fat until golden brown.
  4. Drain on absorbent paper. Serve hot with tomato sauce as a dip.

Really tasty! Nice blend of flavours and I think this is one that nobody would find boring but nothing is overpowering so would make a great dish for gatherings. Rather than use fat I deep-fried in a wok with peanut oil, I think for anyone watching their weight they would also work well baked in an oven as long as you turned a few times.
