These crispy little bites are attractive on a meze table and excellent as a passed hors d’oeuvre. We suggest using egg roll wrappers for ease of assembly, but feel free to use phyllo dough instead. It is a bit harder to work with, but once you get used to it, it’s a breeze.
These and other great recipes are from The Culinary Institute of America's cookbook, Mediterranean Cooking at Home.
Chef’s Note: When frying, it is important to always use a thermometer to regulate the oil’s temperature. To avoid getting burned, always use extreme caution when adding and removing items from the oil.
