Hunting for a bodacious appetizer to wow the fam this holiday? Brenton and I bagged this at a lovely little Mayfair bar in London. I came home determined to crack the code. Mighty Tasty…Just Saying. Softly melts that cheese and is delicious all the way down the hatch!! Not much prep work. But…please dispose of the used oil properly. Just trying to do my minuscule part to protect our earth and its’ waters.
1 small wheel of Brie*
1/2 cup Panko
2 egg whites
1/2 cup olive oil
Cut Brie into quarters.
Pour Panko into shallow bowl.
Beat egg whites together in small shallow bowl.
Heat olive oil in small sauce pan until hot.
Dip cheese wedges in egg white, and then in Panko, coating thoroughly.
Place 2 or 3 wedges at a time in hot olive oil 1 minute on each side.
Place on paper towel to drain.
Repeat with remaining wedges.
Serve with crackers or apple slices.
*This also works well with wedges of Manchego cheese.
