Goat Cheese Croquettes
Serving Size / Yield
- 4 oz. goat cheese
- 1 lg. egg, beaten
- 2 Tbs. flour
- 4 Tbs. panko bread crumbs
- 2 tsp. salt
- 2 tsp. pepper
- 2 tsp. paprika
- 1 inch peanut oil, for frying
Divide the goat cheese using unflavored dental floss into 8 equal slices. Using hands dipped in ice water, roll each slice into a ball that's 3/4 inch around.
Using a fork, toss the balls in flour, then dip in the egg, and roll in the panko, salt, pepper, and paprika until evenly coated. Allow to chill in the fridge for at least 30 minutes before continuing.
Heat 1 inch of peanut oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Gently drop the chilled croquettes into the oil and fry until golden brown on all sides. It should take about 2-4 minutes. Transfer to paper towels to drain.
Serve immediately with some honey mustard or marinara for dipping.
