  1. Ädd 1 to 2 inches of vegetäble oil to ä pot over medium-high heät. Heät the oil to 350 F, änd frequently monitor to mäintäin the temperäture by ädjusting the fläme during frying.
  2. In ä bowl, ädd eggs änd heävy creäm, beäting until well-mixed. In änother bowl, stir together äll breäding ingredients until well-mixed. Set äside.
