Categories: Appetizers, Christmas


2 1/2 oz Gruyere cheese
2 1/2 oz Emmenthaler cheese
1 Egg
2 1/2 tb Milk
1 Clove garlic
1/3 c Plain flour
1 ts Baking powder
Salt, pepper
12 Slices square white bread
Oil for deep frying

Step l. Grate cheeses, put into small bowl of electric mixer. Add egg,
milk, crushed garlic, sifted flour and baking powder, salt and pepper. Beat
on medium speed 5 minutes. Step 2. Remove crusts from bread. Spread about 2
tablespoons of mixture on to each slice of bread, right to outer edges. Cut
each slice into four squares. (If bread is fresh remove crusts after you
have spread the cheese mixture; the crusts hold the bread firm). Step 3.
put in hot oil, cheese - side down; fry until golden brown on both sides
about 2 minutes, turning once. Drain on absorbent paper. Source: Dinner
