- 1 lb kashkaval cheese (provolone or haloumi could also be used)
- all-purpose flour
- 2 -3 large eggs, beaten
- 2 -3 cups fresh breadcrumbs, panko crumbs or 2 -3 cups matzo meal
- Place some oil (about two inches worth should be fine) in a pan over high heat until bubbles rise around the non-stirring end of a wooden spoon.
- Meanwhile, slice the cheese up into half-inch thick pieces. Coat all sides of each slice with flour, then dip in egg, then in breadcrumbs.
- Submerge each slice in hot oil and fry until golden brown. Serve immediately.
