  • The bread crumbs will stay on and the cheese will hold its shape better if you don't handle the cheese too much during frying. Deep frying is an easy way to accomplish this.
  • You can also make fried cheese without the breaded part. Farmer's cheese and products labeled "frying cheese" will work. Paneer and queso blanco are Indian and Mexican varieties of farmer's cheese (respectively) that also fry well.
  • Make sure to freeze the cheese for at least three hours; otherwise the cheese will become unmanageable.
  • Try herbed goat cheese. Freeze the soft cheese before you cut it, then roll it into little balls. Double coated all the cheese before you freeze it.


  • The oil will be very hot. Wear thick clothes and be cautious while dealing with the oil. Do not add water to the oil at any time. Some people put a drop of water in their oil to see if it is hot enough. Instead, you can put the tip of a wooden spatula part way into the oil to see if it is slightly bubbling. Then you will know the oil is ready.
