Cheese Fritters

These were good, but I am NOT a fan of frying things. I don't really like frying...don't get me wrong, fried things are tasty, but the act of frying... :(
6 oz block feta
4 oz mozzarella cheese
1/3 C plain flour
1 egg, lightly beaten
1/2 C dry breadcrumbs
oil for frying
1. Cut the feta and mozzarella into 2 cm cubes. Combine the flour and pepper on a sheet of foil. Toss the cheese lightly in the seasoned flour and shake off excess.
2. Dip the cheese into the egg a few pieces at a time. Coat with breadcrumbs and shake off the excess. Repeat with remaining cheese. Refrigerate, covered, for 25 minutes.
3. Heat 3 cm of oil. the oil is ready when a cube of bread browns in 15 seconds. Cook a few pieces of cheese at a time over medium hear for 2-3 minutes each. Drain and serve.
