Cream Cheese Morsels Recipe

Cream Cheese Morsels Recipe

Ingredients: Makes 24

450 g/1 lb/2 cups cream cheese

4 eggs, beaten
100 g/4 oz/2 cups breadcrumbs

15 ml/1 tbsp ground almonds

2 garlic cloves, chopped
45 ml/3 tbsp chopped parsley
Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Seasoned flour
100 g/4 oz/1 cup plain (all-purpose) flour
600 ml/1 pt/2.5 cups milk
Oil, for shallow frying
Pineapple cubes

Method:

In a large mixing bowl, blend the cream cheese, half of the beaten egg, the breadcrumbs, ground almonds, garlic and parsley. Season. Divide the mixture into 24 small balls, using enough seasoned flour to prevent them being sticky. Beat the plain flour and the remaining eggs together, then gradually blend in the milk until smooth. Dip the cheese balls into the batter, draining the surplus batter against the side of the bowl. Shallow-fry in hot oil for 1 minute per batch until golden. Drain on kitchen paper and serve on cocktail sticks (toothpicks) with pineapple cubes.
