Deep Fried Ricotta Appetizers

1/2 cup Ricotta cheese
1/4 cup shredded provolone or mozzarella  (I like fontina too so any white hard cheese that melts well)
1 egg white
1 cup Italian flavored panko bread crumbs
1 tablespoon flour
1/4 teaspoon each oregano, basil, parsley, garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste
dash of cayenne pepper
canola oil
Whip egg whites until extremely stiff. Mix both cheeses together, together with the herbs, spices and salt and peppers.
Fold in the whipped egg whites.
Add in the flour and mix all together.
Make round balls by using a melon ball scooper, and then roll them in the panko bread crumbs.
Heat oil. Drop a little batter in the oil to see if it sizzles. Fry until golden brown. Serve hot with Alfredo sauce or homemade Marinara Sauce.
