Cooking recipes: Cheese doughnuts

Sissy Nika – Journalist Taste and Culture

A great tasty creation and above all easy to prepare. I tried it the first time in Crete and really liked the combination of cheese croquettes with honey, sesame seeds and chopped almonds. That is why I named them cheese doughnuts.

You can use your favorite cheese, Mytilene cheese, or Domokos Katiki,  Grevena Anevato and anything else you prefer.

I tried also the cheese doughnuts made by the students of the cooking school Etoile in Athens, and I liked them very much.

We give you the recipe.

Cheese doughnuts


1 ½ cup grated Naxos Gruyere

2 tablespoons chopped mint

1 tbsp dill or fennel

2 eggs, beaten

250 gr soft feta cheese mashed with a fork

2/3 cup self-rising flour

Freshly ground pepper

For breading

1 cup flour for all uses

For frying

Sunflower oil

cheese-doughnuts-1Method of preparation

In a large bowl, mix the cheese, herbs, eggs and finally the pepper.

Sieve the flour a little and pour it in the mixture until you achieve a pliable dough.

Knead the dough into balls.

In another bowl we pour the flour and “we roll” in it the small cheese balls to bread them.

In a deep skillet, heat the sunflower well enough and with a slotted spoon pour our donuts carefully turning them for a few minutes until they become golden brown.

Remove the doughnuts and place them on a platter lined with kitchen paper.

Serve the doughnuts hot and put in the middle as a dip, yogurt sauce with tomato touches or use sweet-sour sauce.

Small secrets

We can pour on the cheese doughnuts honey, sesame seeds, nuts or even goji berry.
