Hola!!!


Tapas tapas!! Oh! I love them, I love jumping from bar to bar in Spain for tapas. You can have a beer or a glass of wine with a tapa for about $3. Fantastic right? Yes! That’s why I love it. And in the spring and summer, it’s even better! You can sit outside and enjoy the sights and sounds of Spain. Every tapas restaurant advertises their tapas on a blackboard outside so you can see before you go in.


I love cheese, any kind of cheese. They really make any dish a little bit more tasty! There are many tapas with cheese in them.


One cheese I like is brie. You can bake it, put it in salads, make brie croquettes (see my croquette recipe) or brie pinchos ( I’ll post more about pinchos later).


Today, I thought you would like to taste fried brie… It’s so good. The ones I make are about a 2-bite size. Perfect size for tapas. You get a nice taste of the melted brie, and a nice crunch. A great contrast of textures.

Preheat the oil on medium high heat. Beat the egg and place the brie into the egg mixture and then into the bread crumbs.

Before
After

Place them into the pan for a few minutes until they’re golden brown, flip, and cook the other side. Remove and place onto a plate with paper towel.

Serve and get ready to eat some tapas!


Bon profit!
