  • 3/4 c. whole milk
  • 3 eggs
  • 3/4 c. flour
  • 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • Some salt and pepper
  • 2 qt. canola oil
  • A large mixing bowl

step 1Mix ricotta, mozzarella, Parmesan, milk & eggs
In a large bowl, mix ricotta, mozzarella, Parmesan, milk, and eggs until all the ingredients are well blended.
step 2 Mix in salt & pepper, flour & baking powder
Mix in salt and pepper, flour, and baking powder to the wet ingredients. Set aside.
step 3Heat oil to 350 degrees
In a heavy pot, heat 2 quarts canola oil to 350 degrees, keeping a close watch on the temperature with a candy thermometer.
spacer tip Start heating the oil 15-20 minutes early.
step 4Spoon batter into oil
Once the oil reaches 350 degrees, or slightly over, carefully spoon the batter into the hot oil.

step 5Cook 8-10 minutes
Cook for 2-3 minutes, depending on the size of the fritters, until they’re a dark golden brown.
step 6Remove fritters & let cool
Remove fritters from oil, place on paper towel, and let cool for 4-5 minutes.
