Fried Goat Cheese

Hello! Hope you've been enjoying the recipes I've posted so far... Here's another delicious one from the spring issue of Delight Gluten-Free Magazine!


10 ounces goat cheese
1/3 cup all-purpose gluten-free flour 
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 egg, beaten with a splash of water
1 ¼ cups gluten-free bread crumbs
¼ cup honey
¼ teaspoon hot pepper flakes, finely crushed
Vegetable oil, for frying


Cut the goat cheese into 16 even pieces. Roll into 1-inch sized balls. Place on a baking sheet covered with waxed paper and freeze for 20 minutes. Combine gluten-free flour and salt in a shallow bowl. Place egg and water mixture in another bowl, and the gluten-free bread crumbs in a separate shallow bowl. Set aside. Stir together honey and hot pepper flakes- set aside. In a large saucepan, heat 2 inches of vegetable oil to 375 degrees F. Once the cheese is out of the freezer and is no longer sticky, roll the balls into the flour mixture and shake off excess. Dip into the egg mixture, and then coat evenly in the breadcrumbs. Working in batches, gently drop the coated goat cheese balls into the hot vegetable oil. Fry each ball for about 2 minutes, turning over once after 1 minute. The balls should be golden brown. Remove the balls with a slotted spoon, drain, and place on a plate with paper towel to absorb the excess oil. Once all of the balls have been fried, place on a serving plate and drizzle the spicy honey mixture over the goat cheese. Serve immediately with toothpicks.
