Cheese Frizzles

"Taken from NZ weekly site and attributed to Wendyl Nissen's Pantry. These call for 'tasty' cheese; a great sub would be cheddar. I love how the directions are written, BUT servings and yield are a guess, as I've not tried this recipe. Perfect with drinks, I think these sound amazing!"

Ready In:
20 frizzles




  • Mix all ingredients together except the baking powder and frying fat.
  • Add enough cold water to mix into a stiff batter. If it looks like porridge, it’s too liquid and the frizzles will flatten out in the frying pan. (If this happens, just add a bit more oatmeal. ).
  • Melt the fat in the frying pan until it spits if you put a drop of water in it. Add the baking powder to the mix just before you are about to start cooking.
  • Drop teaspoonfuls into the hot fat – they will bubble a bit like crumpets. Turn over and cook until golden on both sides.
  • Drain on paper towels and serve on their own, or spread with fish or meat paste.

  1. These were pretty little morsels. They were a little bland for our personal taste,so I will add a little hot sauce in the future.
  2. I found these delicious morsels to be a tad too salty, and my first batch didn't turn out the best. frying in fat didn't work for me, so the second batch I baked in the oven on parchment paper at 425 for 10 minutes on each side. Really good, but as I said, next time I will omit the salt altogether. Thanks for posting!
  3. 1st i made these with aussie tablespoons which are 4 teaspoons instead of 3 teaspoons are same i used 1/4 c water and 1/8 cup water first which mr picky liked better with oil they were crispy rose like crazy but did not have the bubbles that were meationed when i added 1/8 c more water they flatten out like pancakes but didnt get as crisp so you choose lol i used butter and mr picky liked oil better so again you choose i ground the oatmeal into flour which must have been common back then cause i have a cookie recipe that uses it .it has an oatmeal taste which i like good recipe


Someone special recently gifted me with membership ~ I don't know who, but know they are special :D! Thank you! It is much appreciated.... My parents owned a grocery store when I was growing up, so there's my love of FOOD! My friends all love to drink, so there's my profession! I stopped bartending 5 years ago, when my son was born, but still 'do' private parties. DH and I did a 'Supper Club' for a while, but life kept getting in the way! I am a SAHM, to a rambunctious 5 y.o....I LOVE cooking and collect cookbooks and anything kitchen related! I'm kinda picky, but will just drop an ingredient or make a sub, so I can still try a recipe. I'm looking forward to many years of enjoyment here, and hope to participate in some events soon! Thanks to everyone for posting such great recipes, and if you review mine, just know that I appreciate the time and effort involved in the reviewing process! <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <a href=""><img src=""></a> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src=""> Partnered with chef#724631 <img src="" border="0" alt="Susie's Banner for Newest Zaar Tag"> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> Co-hosted: <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="New Kids Participation Banner"> <img src=""> <img src =""> <a href="" target="_blank"><img src="" border="0" alt="BBBZWT%"></a> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" > <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src=""> <img src="" border="0" alt="Photobucket"> <img src= "">
