Smažený Sýr (Fried Cheese)

Recipe by Jakub P.
READY IN: 40mins


  • 2
    slices edam cheese, each 1/3 inch thick (can use some other favourite cheese that has a simillar consistence as Edam cheese-blue cheese,...)
  • 14
    cup flour
  • 1
    cup breadcrumbs
  • 1
    egg, lightly beaten
  • vegetable oil (for frying)


  • In the begining its good to wash the cheese so the flour would stick on the cheese better when dipping.
  • Now take three plates and put flour into one of them, egg and a little bit of milk (just to make it more smooth) and a hint of salt to the second one and the breadcrubs to the third one.
  • (you need to mix the egg with milk with a fork so you cant see the yolk, egg white and milk but a kind of orange liquid)
  • Dip cheese slices into flour to form a light coating on all surfaces.
  • Dip each slice into lightly beaten egg and coat completely.
  • Dip each slice into breadcrumbs and coat completely, pat crumbs onto any areas that are not coated.
  • If needed repeat the point 4. and 5.- tastes better.
  • Pour oil into deep frying pan to a depth of 1/2 inch. Heat to 375 degrees F.
  • Carefully place slices in pan and fry on one side until golden-brown.
  • Turn and fry on the other side until golden brown. Pay attention so the cheese doesnt get out from the "coat"!
  • Serve with french fries and tatar sauce/ketchup.
