Fried Cheese Bites

Eating the Beast Mode Bite

The kids in our area are headed back to school this week.  Even without young kids, you can feel the excitement electrifying the air.  Moments like this bring back so many memories, so many first days, so many changes, so much growth.  The time flits by so quickly that suddenly those days are gone.  We are in a new phase with adult children living their own lives.  I am so proud to see their growth and maturity, at the same time, I miss those special moments and exciting changes.

I get to have some fun moments with my friend’s children though.  I invited a friend over to help me with a recipe for Fried Cheese Bites.  This appetizer is so fun to make that I knew her kids would love to help, and they certainly did.Big brother is helping little sister with cutting the dough

Even the youngest, Grace, got into the mix with the help of her big brother Michael.  They used a pizza cutter and my quilting ruler to cut the dough into even squares.

Casey and Peyton took pieces of cheese and carefully wrapped them in dough.  It’s important to make sure that the cheese is completely covered with no openings so the cheese doesn’t ooze out into the oil during frying.

These kids have the biggest appetites that I have ever seen and the energy to match.  We make lots and lots of bites, and none of them went to waste.

Fried Cheese Bites

  • 4 cups vegetable oil
  • 1 can (8 oz) Pillsbury™ refrigerated Crescent Dough Sheet
  • 8 oz Jalapeno Gouda, cut in 1/2 to 3/4 inch cubes
  • Condiments, if desired.

In deep fryer or 3-quart heavy saucepan, heat oil over medium heat to 350°F.

Unroll dough, and cut lengthwise into 4 strips, then cut crosswise into 8 rows, making 32 squares.

Roll piece of dough around each Gouda Cube; stretch dough, and press to seal edges and completely cover the cheese.

Fry cheese bites a few at a time for about 1 minute, turning occasionally until dough is completely cooked through and deep golden brown. Drain on paper towels, and keep warm.

Serve warm with condiments.  We used pizza sauce and the kids loved it!

    Thanks for sharing. I’m glad you specified “Jalapeno Gouda”. I recently ate at a restaurant who had a Pepper-Jack roast beef Sandwich on sale. Thinking it was Jalapeno, I ordered and was disappointed that it did not have the bite I wanted in it like a Mexican Roast Beef Torta. Will have to try this recipe.

  2. Mars and I discovered deep fried cheese curds this summer in Wisconsin. Even the fast food joint, Culvers, sells them. Our favorite place had a light coating on them….yummm, delicious!!!
