Cooking Instructions

1

Cut cheese into 2x1/4x3/4 inch rectangles, then cut each rectangle into 2 wedges. Cover and chill in the refrigerator. In a small mixing bowl stir together the bread crumbs, wheat germ, and ground red pepper; set aside.


2

For the sauce, melt butter in a saucepan. Stir in tomato sauce, chopped mushrooms, basil, and oregano. Bring to a boil; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Cover and keep warm.


3

Dip the chilled cheese wedges into beaten eggs to coat evenly, then roll in the bread crumb mixture. Dip wedges into eggs and roll in crumb mixture again.


4

In a 3 quart saucepan or a deep-fat fryer, heat 3 inches of cooking oil to 375°F. Fry cheese wedges, a few at a time, in hot oil for 30 to 60 seconds or until golden brown on all sides. Remove fried cheese and drain on paper towels. Keep warm in a 250°F oven while frying remaining cheese. Serve warm with the sauce. If desired, accompany with cherry tomatoes, sweet pickles, and new potatoes.
