Directions

  1. In a small bowl, whisk the egg with some salt and pepper using a fork. Place the bread crumbs in a separate bowl. Dip the cubes of Brie into the egg, then roll in breadcrumbs until evenly coated and well covered. Place the cheese cubes on a tray, and refrigerate for about 20 minutes, to firm up.
  2. Heat oil in deep-fryer or heavy saucepan to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Fry the cheese cubes for 3 to 5 minutes, until deep golden brown. Remove with a slotted spoon, and drain on paper towels. Serve warm with cranberry sauce for dipping. You can also make these before your guests arrive, and keep them in a warm oven.

Just tried this & am obviously doing something wrong because when I took them out of the frier, there was hardly any cheese inside the breadcrumbs! I gave them 3 minutes as suggested. Did I not coat them enough? Please advise as I know I can do it right! :-)

I was anxious to try this as a local restaurant serves a favorite of deep fried stilton with cranberry sauce. Unfortunately the flavor of the brie doesn't hold up to the frying. Perhaps a larger chunk of brie or stronger cheese would work better for this recipe.

This was pretty darn good. You really have to keep an eye on them to make sure they don't burn, though.
