- Remove from heat. Beat eggs in thoroughly, one by one until mixture is smooth. Mix in the cheese and seasonings. Transfer cheese mixture to a mixing bowl.
- Heat the oil in a deep fryer to 350 degrees. Carefully fry half of the dry parsley sprigs for about 10 to 12 seconds. Transfer to a plate on a paper towel. Repeat with remaining parsley. Season with salt.
