This recipe works for both plain and flavored cheesecakes. Rest assured that your family or guests will be impressed! Here’s how to make it.


  • 3 to 4 cheesecake slices, chilled and cut into 1-inch squares
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 eggs, beaten
  • 1 cup plain breadcrumbs
  • Vegetable oil
  • Powdered sugar
  • Optional: Dipping sauce of your choice


  • Start by rolling each cheesecake piece in flour, beaten eggs, and the breadcrumbs. Gently press the breadcrumbs so the bites can be well coated.
  • Place the bites on a baking sheet and freeze for about 30 minutes.
  • Heat around 2 inches of oil until it reaches 350°F.
  • Then, in batches of 3 or 4, fry the frozen cheesecake bites in the oil until golden brown. Drain on a paper towel-lined plate and fry the next batch.
  • Dust some powdered sugar on top and serve while hot.

Salted Caramel Sauce

Of course, you can have the fried cheesecake bites on their own, but a dipping sauce makes everything so much better! Here is the first.
