Manouri Me Kythoni: Fried Cheese W/ Quince Preserves

READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by NcMysteryShopper

Great little Mediterranean recipe that can be served as an appetizer or dessert. Also, a great option for brunch, or as a snack. Quince is known as the fruit of love and originates from the Island of Crete. If quince preserves aren't available, try any preserve or marmalade.

I just whipped up 1 serving of this for me as a late dinner/snack. It is delicious. The mild cheese is molten under a shatteringly-crisp crust and the quince preserves (homemade - given me by a friend) are the perfect accompaniment. I will be making this a lot!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cut cheese into 1/4" slices and then cut slices into quarters. Coat slices with flour, dip in egg, and fry in hot oil, turning until golden brown on both sides.
  2. Allow to cool slightly, and serve with a dollop of quince preserve on each slice.
