I saw this interesting recipe for deep fried milk and cream cheese over on Table for 2. Immediately I was intrigued by it and wanted to make some right away.
The recipe calls for cream cheese and milk to be cooked together until the mixture forms into a thick pudding, after being refrigerated it is then sliced and fried. My mixture became a thick pudding, but was definitely not firm enough to slice. I think this was because I didn't cook it long enough to thicken properly.
I decided, instead of making sticks, I'd make balls. Doing this worked just as well, if not better, as the sticks.
I was a little suspicious of this recipe to begin with, but I have to say, I'm really happy I tried it. I think the fried milk turned out really good! The crust is sweet and crispy, reminds me of rosettes. And the inside is really soft, very creamy. It had a great flavor, although I do wish the cream cheese was more prominent. I did add a good splash of vanilla to the milk to enhance the flavor.
I think these fried milk balls would be great served as an appetizer or even a dessert. :)
