Why You’ll Love Fried Goat Cheese Balls

These are crispy on the outside and creamy on the inside, it is such a great combination. Especially with the salsa macha honey, it gives them that touch of spicy but in a very balanced way and it truly is so freaking delicious! So step up your appetizer game and make these, you will not regret it.

How To Prepare Fried Goat Cheese Balls

🧀 First, mix the brie and the goat cheese together, it doesn’t have to be homogenous.

🧤 Secondly, rub a bit of olive oil on your hands to make the balls neater, or gloves.

🏐 Form the balls.

❄️ Then, refrigerate for 15-20 minutes.

🧂 Season the panko with the seasoned salt.

🍳 Pass through the egg wash, then the seasoned panko, the egg wash again and seasoned panko. Very important to double dip!

🥶 Set them over parchment paper and cover in plastic and let them chill 10-12 hours in the fridge, a minimum of 4 hours. Alternatively let them chill in the freezer 30-40 minutes. Fridge is better though!

🔥 Preheat your oil to 375F. Then, fry each ball for about 20-30 seconds, until fully golden.

🌶 Mix the honey and salsa macha. Then, serve at the bottom of a plate.

🍯 Add the balls on top of the honey so they won’t get soggy.

🌿 Lastly, top with black pepper and chives.

Substitutions and Variations

  1. You can do goat cheese only or brie only instead of both of them combined.
  2. You can use olive oil or avocado oil instead of grapeseed oil.
  3. You can use chili oil/crisp instead of salsa macha.
  4. Herbs can be easily swapped for your favorites or which ever ones you have on hand.
