Bolinhos De Queijo (Cheese Balls)

1/2 lb Parmesan cheese; grated
1/2 lb Mozzarella cheese; grated
3 Egg whites; beaten into peaks
3 tb Cornmeal
1 ts Thyme
Vegetable oil for frying

Scented with thyme, bolinhos de queijo are a perfect complement to a tart glass of limeade or a glass of red wine.

In a mixing bowl, stir cheese together. Stir in thyme and cornmeal. Fold beaten egg whites into cheese.

Form cheese mixture into balls. Fry in hot oil until golden. Drain and serve.

Substitutions may be made by using different types of hard and semi-hard cheeses.
