  • 2 large egg whites
  • 1 cup freshly-grated Parmesan
  • 1 pinch cayenne
  • Vegetable oil for deep-frying


Servings 20


Step 1

Put whites in a large bowl and let stand at room temperature 15 minutes.

With an electric mixer, beat whites until they hold stiff peaks and with a metal spoon thoroughly fold in Parmesan and cayenne. Roll mixture into about twenty 3/4-inch balls.

In a 3-quart heavy kettle heat 1 inch oil to 375 degrees. Working in batches, fry balls, turning them until golden -- about 2 minutes. Transfer to paper towels to drain.
