I made these "amazing" Herbed Goat Cheese balls for a gals night out shopping party. They were a huge hit and didn't last long on the table.
You will need:
A log of goat cheese chilled well
Fresh chopped herbs (parsley, chives, thyme, basil, dill, mint)
Smoked paprika - (pour in a thin line on a board and roll the ball down the line)
1/2 cup olive oil
One teaspoon red hot pepper flakes
It's so easy. I cut my goat cheese log into one inch pieces.
Roll the cheese in your palms into a ball. Roll the balls into prepared chopped up "fresh herbs" place on a cookie sheet and chill until needed.
I slightly warmed 1/2 cup olive oil and added a heaping teaspoon of red pepper flakes. Let it sit for a couple hours. Stir every so often.
When your ready to serve pour the oil mixture onto the serving dish. Insert a tooth pick into the cheese ball and place in the oil like shown. The oil gives it a finished touch and will not disappoint!
