Goats Cheese fritters with sweet red onion marmalade and dill yoghurt. Delicious, crunchy and creamy, these fritters are great for a canape or sexy starter.

Simply mix the goat’s cheese with the other ingredients in a bowl.

Roll the goat’s cheese mixture into small balls on a tray and firm them up in the refrigerator.

They are easy to make and you can also freeze the goat’s cheese balls. So making extra is time-saving for the next time you fancy some cheesy fritters.

Once the goat’s cheese balls are firm in the fridge, about an hour, it’s time to breadcrumb them with flour, egg wash and panko breadcrumbs.

It’s best to double breadcrumb these little cheesy fritters so the goat’s cheese does not ooze out while deep frying. Do this by rolling your cheesy balls in flour once, then roll in egg wash and the breadcrumbs. Repeat the egg wash and breadcrumbs twice for a double coating.

Again chill in the fridge to firm up the goat’s cheese before deep frying. Deep fry for just 3 to 4 minutes until lightly golden brown. Serve with sweet red onion marmalade and dill yoghurt like below.
