Croque fromage?

The recipe sounds very much like a Belgian starter that I go crazy for. The Belgians form rectangles about 10x3x1.5 cm (cut from a layer on a cookie sheet), cover the pieces in bread crumbs and deep fry them. Delicious!

I will have to try and find out if it meets my expectations. Have not been in Belgium in many years and miss their great food.
