How to Fry Cheese: 7 Steps (with Pictures)

Frying cheese is easy. To get it right, it's critical to know the right kind of cheese and how to cook it.


  • Processed cheese cut into cubes;
  • Eggs to spread on cheese;
  • Breadcrumbs;
  • Cooking oil capable of withstanding high temperatures.


Fry Cheese Step 1

Step 1. Choose a processed and pasteurized cheese

A good choice is mozzarella. Cut into cubes.

Step 2. Spread it on bread to make it tasty

All you have to do is beat some eggs, cover some of the cheese and spread it in Italian-style breadcrumbs.

Fry Cheese Step 3

Step 3. Freeze for at least 3 hours

Step 4. Heat the oil

Use a shallow skillet to heat the oil and heat it to a high temperature.

Step 5. Carefully fry the cheese until the breadcrumbs are golden

Use a tong to move the cubes.

Step 6. Let the cheese cool on the paper towel until you can eat it

Fry Cheese Step 7

Step 7. Ready


  • The breadcrumbs will remain in the cheese, which will stay in a nice shape if you avoid messing with it too much. Soaking it completely in the oil is a great way to fry it without causing any further damage to the cheese.
  • You can also make fried cheese without the bread part. Cheeses that say "Frying Cheese" on the label will do. Paneer and queso blanco are Indian and Mexican cheese varieties that also fry well.
  • Don't forget to freeze the cheese for at least 3 hours, otherwise you won't be able to handle it.
  • Try herbed goat cheese. Freeze the soft cheese before slicing it, then roll it into small balls. Spread the cheese twice before freezing it.


  • the oil will be well hot. Wear thick clothing and be careful when handling the oil. Not add water to the oil at no time. Some people put a drop of water in the oil to see if it's hot enough. Instead, you can place the tip of a wooden spatula in the oil to see if it is bubbling slightly. And then you will know the oil is ready.
