Fried Cheese Flambé

Yield 10 servings


  • 1 1/2 pounds Kasseri or Kefalotyri cheese
  • 4 eggs, well beaten
  • 2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 cups butter
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons brandy
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons lemon juice

How to Make It

  1. Slice cheese into 3- x 1/2-inch pieces. Dip cheese in egg; dredge in flour, coating thoroughly. Place on waxed paper, and chill 1 hour.

  2. Melt butter in a heavy skillet over medium heat. Fry cheese in butter 10 seconds on each side. Drain on paper towels. Transfer cheese to a serving platter.

  3. Place brandy in a small, long handled pan; heat just until warm (do not boil). Ignite brandy with a long match, and pour over cheese. When flames die down, sprinkle lemon juice over cheese. Serve immediately.
