Have you ever thought to yourself?
"I am way too healthy. "
"I really could use some heart problems"
then I have a recipe for you.
introducing PIZZA BALLS
gooey cheese center with a crisp outside layer, make these cardiovascular nightmares perfect for a party or snack,
Step 1: What You Need.
the hardware is pretty simple. all you need is
a couple mixing bowls
a deep fryer or a large pot
a firm resolve to avoid hot oil splatter
Step 2: The Cheesy Part
to make the cheese portion you will need
- 2 8 ounce packages of cream cheese
- 2 tablespoons of sriracha (optional, but i like that extra punch of spice)
- 1 teaspoons of ground cumin
- 2 teaspoons of Italian seasoning
-1 1/2 cups of shredded cheese
- 1/2 small packet of pepperoni
first i put the cream cheese in the microwave for a couple minutes to make it easier to mix.
Start with the sriracha then throw in the rest of the seasonings, followed by the cheese,
then cut the pepperoni into quarters and throw them in the bowl and mix.
lastly put some plastic wrap over the bowl and place into the fridge to firm up again.
Step 3: Swing Batter Batter
the next step for my queso fritos de muerte is the batter.
you will need
1/2 cup flour
1/4 cup cornstarch
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup water
1 tablespoon beaten egg
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
the batter is simple enough to make
just throw the dry stuff in a bowl and the wet stuff in a different bowl and mix them together
the batter should be watery.
so if it isn't, add more water
Step 4: Great Balls in Fryer
now for the fun part
pull the cheese from the fridge and roll into balls a little smaller then a ping pong ball.
dip the balls in the batter and then roll into some breadcrumbs.
or if you want something more crunchy crush some tortilla chips up and use them instead.
fry the balls in 375 degree vegetable oil until the crust is golden brown
let them sit for a minute on a rack or a paper towel to drain. or do what I did and use both.
Step 5: Prepare to Enjoy.. Then Enjoy
you may want to contact a doctor, or at least invest some money into tums.
when these cheese delicious monstrosity's hit your mouth your arteries will start begging for mercy.
dip these pizza balls into some marinara sauce, and enjoy
