Crispy Fried Cheese Squares by Chuck Hughes

From Chuck's Day Off


1 clove garlic, crushed
½ cup butter (125 ml)
½ cup flour (125 ml)
2 cup milk (500 ml)
1 ½ cup Emmental, grated (375 ml)
1 ½ cup Gruyère, grated (375 ml)
1 ½ cup of Parmigiano Reggiano cheese, grated (375 ml)
1 tsp cayenne pepper (to taste) (5 ml)
4 eggs, beaten
½ cup flour (125 ml)
1 cup breadcrumbs (250 ml)
Salt and pepper
Peanut or Canola oil for frying


Pickled vegetables
Arugula mixed with olive oil, lemon juice & salt & pepper



1. Melt the butter in a saucepan. Add garlic and stir in the flour. Cook, stirring constantly, for about 2 minutes. Add the milk, whisking constantly until the sauce thickens. Bring to a boil, add the cheese and continue stirring until it’s all melted in. Season with cayenne, salt and pepper.

2. Remove from heat and pour into a 9-inch pan (23 cm), and cover with plastic wrap.

3. Refrigerate for at least 3 hours or until the mixture is firm.

4. Invert onto a work surface. Remove the plastic wrap. Cut into 6 large or 12 medium squares.

5. Place the flour, eggs and breadcrumbs into 3 different bowls.

6. Dredge each cheese square in the flour, then in the eggs and finally in the breadcrumbs.

7. Heat oil in a deep fryer to 350 °F (180 °C). Fry each cheese square for about 2 minutes or until golden brown. Drain on paper towel.
