These appetizers/movie snacks come together in a very short time and are different and delicious.
12 Babybel cheese rounds
scant 1/4 cup of flour
1 egg, beaten
1/2 cup bread crumbs
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. Italian seasoning
1 tsp. salt
Canola oil for frying
Pour a 1/2 inch layer of oil in a pot. Heat to 350 degrees F.
Mix the spices into the breadcrumbs. Dip cheese pieces in flour, then egg, then bread crumbs. Carefully add the cheese to the hot oil. Do not crowd the pan as cooking too many at once will make the oil cool. Cook 30 second to 1 minutes until first side is brown. Flip and repeat. Do not overcook as cheese will start to expand and melt into the oil. Drain on paper towel.
Serve with a chutney or honey mustard dip.
1/4 cup honey mustard
1 heaping Tablespoon honey
Heat the honey and mix into the mustard.
