Goat Cheese Balls.
Yup, I’ll wait while you laugh and collect yourself after reading the title of this post.
Are you done?
Okay, I’ll wait.
Alright, so Goat Cheese Balls: these delicious appetizers are NOT what you think. They are not made from goats, nor are they balls of any kind. Actually, they’re breaded GOAT CHEESE in the shape of balls and pan fried until golden brown. You serve them over salads and with balsamic vinegar.
Still laughing? I’ll wait.
Try these goat cheese balls for a unique way to dress up your daily salad. Warm, crisp, and richly flavorful, these goat cheese balls make for a hilarious dinner item that is oh, so clearly delicious.
Goat Cheese Balls
This recipe comes from Lydia Dorsey and her fabulous foodie mother Carol Pegues Dorsey. Carol’s recipe is as follows.
* 1/2 tube of regular goat cheese, cut into thin circular rounds
* 1 cup bread crumbs
* 1 egg beaten
* oil, for frying
1.) Cut goat cheese from cylinder container into thin, even rounds.
2.) Beat egg and measure bread crumbs. Egg and bread crumbs should be in seperate dishes. When prepped, dip goat cheese into egg mixture until fully coated. Then, dip goat cheese into bread crumbs until fully coated. Set aside.
3.) Once all goat cheese rounds are coated, warm a non-stick skillet on medium-high with cooking oil, or spray. Add cheese rounds to skillet and cook until golden brown on both sides.
4.) Plate over a bed of salad and serve with a balsamic dressing (I prefer Waldburg Date from Vom Fass). Enjoy! Makes 12 goat cheese balls.Google+
