  • In a medium glass or metal bowl, whip egg whites until they just hold a stiff peak. Fold in Parmesan cheese until evenly distributed. Form level teaspoons of batter into balls.

  • Fry balls a few at a time, turning once until crisp and golden. Using a slotted spoon, remove puffs from oil and place onto paper towels to drain.

Editor's Note

We have determined the nutritional value of oil for frying based on a retention value of 10% after cooking. The exact amount may vary depending on cook time and temperature, ingredient density, and the specific type of oil used.

Make sure you fold the cheese in. If you stir it in it will be very dense. Read More

These were very easy to make and quite tasty! They did seem a little salty to me but I guess that's to be expected. All in all these were fun and good! Thanks for sharing.:) Read More
