Pallotte Cacio e Ova

Serves 4

Ingredients:

1 Loaf of Stale of Italian Bread

4 Eggs

2-1/2 cups of Parmigiano Reggiano

Sunflower Oil (for frying)

Basil

Prepared Tomato Sauce

Instructions:

Soak loaf of stale bread in water. When fully soaked, remove from water and remove the crust. Squeeze out the excess water and place in a medium sized mixing bowl. Add 4 eggs and 2-1/2 cups of freshly grated Parmigiano Reggiano. Mix thoroughly and shape into medium sized balls. Meanwhile, add enough sunflower oil to a pan to be half full. Heat on medium heat. Once hot enough that a small piece of fritter dough "sizzles", carefully add your fritters (aka Pallotte Cacio e Ova) into the oil, being careful to not overcrowd. Occasionally flip until golden. Drain on a paper towel. Serve on top prepared tomato sauce and top with basil and extra Parmigiano Reggiano.
