Whisk an egg in a bowl.
Remove the packaging from the Babybel, and coat it in flour.
You can use either self-raising flour or regular flour.
Dip the flour-covered Babybel in the whisked up egg.
Fill a separate bowl with some breadcrumbs.
The viral recipe used Tesco’s Golden Breadcrumbs, to be precise.
Heat some vegetable oil in a pan and wait for it to be hot enough to fry the Babybel in.
Lower the Babybel- now covered in breadcrumbs- into the oil.

When is McDonald’s reopening?
Although rumours ran riot on Twitter that McDonald’s was reopening its Drive-Thru and takeaway services on April 6, this is false.
It’s likely this was an April Fools joke, and many people were fooled.
In fact, one Twitter user took to the site to say ‘McDonald’s opening again has made my whole day’, and another added ‘Best news I’ve heard since lockdown’.
A tweet from the official McDonald’s UK Twitter account confirmed that the news was fake.
It said: “Lots of people getting in touch about a certain post circulating tonight.
“It’s fake, we are not reopening next week and any official announcements would come from this page and would spell the brand name correctly.”
It is currently unknown when McDonald’s will be back in action.
