Fried Cheesecake Bites

I ate a Ryan’s recently and they had some cheesecake things that were kinda like a donut hole. I talked to the manager and he said he got them out of a bag and deep fried them. Any suggestions for making these?

We have been making cheesecake bites since I was a child and they have become a Holiday Tradiition in our family. You can purchase the prepared cheesecake bits in your grocer’s freezer or purchase the cake itself and cut it up into the size bites you want. You can even do this by making the cake yourself, if desired, and then cutting it into the size bites you want.

Once you have your “bites” you will need 3 different bowls. I bowl will have one cup of flour, another bowl will have 2 cracked and whisked eggs in it (or you can use buttermilk instead), and the third bowl will have 1 cup crushed graham cracker crumbs. Place the bites into the flour first and coat completely, then remove with a slotted spoon. Place the bites into the egg next and again make certain completely coated. Remove from the egg using a different slotted spoon. Finally, completely coat the bites in the graham cracker crumbs. Once you have removed the bites from the graham crackers, put them into the freezer for about 3 hours before frying.

Heat the vegetable oil to 325 degrees. Place only three or four bites into the oil at one time. Let fry for a couple minutes or until they begin to float. Remove from oil and place onto white paper towels to drain. Once finished and allowed to drain, return to the freezer until ready to serve or keep in refrigerator. If freezing them, remove from freezer and put into refrigerator about 6 hours before ready to serve. If wanting to serve ASAP, place into the refrigerator and allow to chill about 2 or 3 hours before serving.

Hope this helped you out and that you will enjoy!

Thank you so very much for sharing this recipe!!!!!
My family loves the fried cheesecake bites from Longhorn Steak House and now I can fix them at home. Now all I need is to find a recipe for a raspberry sauce like they use
on theirs and then add some vanilla ice cream and cool whip and my family will love me forever.

    The sauce is easy .. just get your favorite fruit and add sugar. . Let it sit for about an hour at room temperature.

Take about 2 tablespoons raspberry preserves to a cup of boiling water and stir until reduced. You now have raspberry sauce and this trick works for any flavor of preserves you like and I’ve even taken the syrup to make flavored lemonades. Hope you enjoy
