  • 1 lb kashkaval (or provolone, fontina, or halloumi cheese)
  • 3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3 eggs
  • 3 cup breadcrumbs
  • flat-leaf parsley


  • Place some oil (about two inches worth should be fine) in a pan over high heat until bubbles rise around the non-stirring end of a wooden spoon.
  • Meanwhile, slice the cheese up into half-inch thick pieces. Coat all sides of each slice with flour, then dip in egg, then in breadcrumbs.
  • Submerge each slice in hot oil and fry until golden brown. Serve immediately.
