dominican fried cheese

Ahhhh, the deliciousness of fried cheese. You may think this belongs on famed website, which chronicles such American wonders as deep-fried twinkies and a bacon-cheese roll ... or my favorite, the McDonalds-tini (a martini of chocolate milk shake and vodka, rimmed with BBQ sauce and with a chicken nugget decoration). I digress. Below is a staple of a Dominican breakfast: fried cheese. Do not attempt this with any old type of cheese! You must have the truly Latin solid, salty cheese -- the kind that doesn't melt like mozzarella but rather softens slightly when heated. Recipe below:

250g or 1/4 lb of frying cheese, cut into thick slices
canola oil

In a frying pan, heat up oil on medium-high heat. Depending on how non-stick your pan is, you may use more or less oil. in the meantime, dredge the thick slices of cheese. Dredging is just a word for coating lightly in flour on all sides. Put cheese into pan, cook until it's browned on either side. Serve. (If you want an extra treat, slice up onions real thin, soak them in vinegar and salt for about 1/2 hr, then top the cheese with that).
