fine bread crumbs

Great recipe one of my old fav's!! If your having trouble with oozing cheese simply do this process twice (Dip each cheese wedge in egg and turn to coat. Roll cheese in crumb mixture to coat.) This will give you a stronger shell. Also coating cheese lightly in flour before the egg will help. Hope this is useful.
I cheffed this for a party. It was very difficult to deep fry without it "springing a leak" and leaking cheese all over the place. I had to deep fry, try to flop it back & forth to keep the cheese inside, then freeze. Then I had to bring to room temperature to serve w/ the sauce. I'm trying it again to see if it works better, if it doesn't I wont make it again.
I cannot rave about this recipe enough.... I loved it & can't stop thinking about it. ;o) I cut the recipe in half, breaded the wedges then stuck them in the freezer for 30 minutes before frying, to avoid leakage. It worked! They browned up beautifully & got gooey inside but kept their shape & neevr sprang a leak. I served these as a first course to our Valentine's dinner w/ apple slices & chambord spritzers. I could have skipped everything else & just had these. LOL The salty/cheesy/ sweet combo is to die for. The only changes I made to the recipe was to use stuffing mix ground up in the food processor for the bread crumbs as I was out. I'm sure the seasnings in the stuffing mix added extra flavor & I will repeat the sub next time. Thansk for a thoroughly enjoyable recipe, Jennifer Romasco!
You would be very surprised considering the ingredients how ABSOLUTELY DELICIOUS this is!!! DO NOT forgo the raspberry dipping sauce!!! Perfect for a small get-together or romantic dinner if you want to be PRAISED AND LAUDED for your fine culinary skills!!!
I have been looking for this recipe for a long time, and this is the best I have found!
Thank you for the submission. I enjoyed the Raspberry sauce with the cheese.
try it with cranberry sauce or jelly "WOW"
Delish! I mixed 50% balsamic vinegar with 50% raspberry jam for a tangy suace.
