  • 2/3 cup evaporated milk
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 cup cheddar cheese shredded
  • 1 cup romano cheese shredded

  2. Meanwhile, preheat oil in a 3 quart heavy saucepan over medium high heat to 375° F.

  4. Stir in cheddar cheese, romano cheese, flour and egg, and mix well.
  5. Drop 2 Tablespoons of batter into hot oil for each and fry for 1-1/2 to 3 minutes, or until golden brown.
