Deep Fried Pumpkin Cheese Cubes
2 pounds (1 kg) fresh pumpkin
1/2 cup (50 g) flour
2 tablespoons milk
1 cup (125g) bread crumbs
1/2 cup (60g) grated Romano cheese
Vegetable oil (for deep frying)
Slice pumpkin; remove the center and skin. Cut into 1-inch (3 cm) cubes. Sprinkle cubes with salt and pepper if desired.
Place flour on a plate. In a bowl blend bread crumbs and Romano cheese. Slightly beat eggs and milk in a second bowl. Heat the oil. Dip pumpkin cubes into the flour, covering them completely. Dip into egg mixture, then into cheese-bread mixture. Deep fry in hot oil 2 minutes or until golden.
Serve with salads or cheese dip.
