Montasio Cheese Crisps (Frico)

Montasio Cheese Crisps

Lidia Bastianich, who owns New York's Felidia and operates a restaurant, called Frico, with her son, grew up eating this irresistible fried-cheese snack in her hometown of Pula, Croatia (once part of Italy). Frico may be stuffed with a variety of fillings. When making this simple version, we added a little flour to help the frico to hold its shape.Christopher Hirsheimer
