Ingredients

How to make it

  • N a medium saucepan, heat water and butter to a simmer.
  • Add flour all at once and stir vigorously with a wooden spoon over low heat until mixture no longer sticks to pan and forms into a ball.
  • 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.
  • Spoon about 10 teaspoons of the cheese mixture into the oil. Do not crowd as they double in size and self rotate while cooking.
  • Fry for 6 to 8 minutes until golden brown.
  • **Drain on absorbent paper. Keep beignets in a warm oven while frying the remaining.** Optional to sprinkle a touch of sesame seeds on top.
  • Arrange the warm cheese beignets on a platter with the fried parsley. Serve with hot tomato basil. or dip of choice
