972. Curaçao’s Fried Dutch Cheeseballs

6 egg whites

4 cups shredded sharp, yellow Dutch cheese


Oil for deep-frying

Beat egg whites until stiff. Mix in the cheese until well blended. Form into balls (about 1’ diameter) Keep hands well-floured while ball-forming.

Deep fry in hot oil until golden brown, careful not to over-fry, to prevent bitter taste. Serve piping hot. Yields about 60 balls.

Can also be kept in the freezer, unfried, after firming up. Store in airtight containers until needed.
