So tonight I decided to try this recipe that I saw while scrolling through Facebook. It was on the food networks Facebook page. The recipe was shared by Guy Fieri and originally it was frying a thing of provolone. I am not big on provolone cheese so I decided to use the recipe but do mozzarella instead.
I also decided that obviously I can just have fried cheese for dinner so I bought gluten free meatballs at the store. I was not going to have enough time between going to the store for the ingredients for the cheese and to come home and make meatballs. That’s something I need to do when I have time.
Anyway the recipe for the batter goes like this:
1. 1 cup of cornstarch
2. 1 cup of flour (obviously mine is gf)
3. 2 cups of cold club soda*
4. 1 teaspoon of salt
5. 1 teaspoon of parsley flakes
6. Whisk together until smooth and refrigerate for a half an hour
It should come out looking like this.
Once the batter is cold and pulled out make sure you have your oil heated. Then simple steps dip the cheese slices into flour and then into batter. Once they are coated in batter they go into the pot. They obviously do not have to be in there very long or else it would be a nasty giant pot of oil and melted cheese.
After a few attempts it was not holding up so instead I improvised and used the batter as a base and put breadcrumbs on the mozzarella slices. This held up a little better. So they turned out like this.
Until next time…
