Remember this baked feta?
This fried goat cheese belongs in food Heaven too.
With its crispy crust and its warm and creamy inside, this fancy fried cheese is always a crowd pleaser. I think it is the perfect accompaniment to your Easter or Mother's Day menu.
Here's how you can whip it up in no time:
16 ounce goat cheese log
1 cup panko bread crumbs
1/4 cup (more or less) extra-virgin olive oil
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup flour
Pop goat cheese in freezer for about 15 minutes to harden.
While cheese is in freezer, arrange three bowls on your counter. To the first add the flour, the eggs to the second bowl, and 1 cup of panko bread crumbs to the third bowl.
Using a sharp knife, slice goat cheese into 1/4- 1/2 inch pieces.
Dip each piece into the flour, egg, and breadcrumbs.
Place on a parchment lined baking sheet.
Once you are done dredging all the pieces, cover and chill in fridge until you are ready to serve.
Right before serving heat olive oil in a large saute pan. (You will need enough to cover the bottom of the pan.) Once oil is hot fry the goat cheese, about 2 minutes per side.
Serve on a bed of greens dressed with extra-virgin olive oil and lemon juice.
Sprinkle with salt.
