Number of Servings: 20


    1 1/2 cups grated sharp Cheddar cheese
    1/4 cup diced pimientos, drained
    2 tablespoons gluten free all-purpose flour
    3 egg whites, beaten stiff
    2 cups corn flake crumbs

    Oil for frying


In a large Dutch Oven, fry Daddy, or Kitchen Kettle, heat 4-5 inches of canola oil to 350 degrees.

Start beating your egg whites. I prefer to use my stand mixer set to medium. Beat until the egg whites form stiff peaks.

While they are beating: In a large bowl, combine the cheese, pimentos, GF flours. Stir well. Then add in the stiff egg whites and 1 cup of the corn flake crumbs. Stir well to combine.

In a second large bowl, pour out the additional 1 cup of corn flake crumbs. Form the cheese mixture into one-inch balls, pressing and rolling to make a compact ball.

Then roll into the crumbs to get a good coating.

Fry four to 5 balls at a time. Cook until the balls float and the coating has browned. Drain on paper towels, and then place in a 175-degree oven on a baking sheet to keep them warm.

Serve immediately with dipping sauce of choice

Serving Size: Makes 20 1" Balls (Can be made smaller if desired)
