Preparation

  1. In a food processor, or by hand, crush ½ a box of Triscuits. Set aside.
  2. Combine all of the filling ingredients in a large bowl.
  3. Pinch off bite sized balls of filling and roll between your hands (about 1 oz or 28g each).
  4. Roll the balls in the crushed Triscuit mixture, then coat it in beaten egg, then again in Triscuit mixture.
  5. Heat a sauce pan of vegetable oil to 350˚F (180˚C). Line a tray with paper towel to drain the fried bites.
  6. Fry each bite until Triscuit coating turns a light brown, about 45 seconds.
  7. NOTE: If they’re fried too long, the cheese filling will escape and you’ll be left with a sad shell of a former cheese bite.
  8. Garnish with more chopped dill and a squeeze of lemon. Serve immediately.
  9. Enjoy!
