Baked Goat Cheese Balls #cheese #appetizer

I'm absolutely squashing on everything goat cheddar at this moment. It's one of my preferred cheeses this season since I can fold it into logs bested with cranberries, pecans, and walnuts, stuff it into mushrooms showered with balsamic coating, pipe it into tomatoes, thus. much. more. This velvety, marvelous, cheddar is insane tasty and perfect for the hors d'oeuvre palooza that is going to follow.

There are a couple of delicious ways you can serve these heated goat cheddar balls. First up, they make a stunning plate of mixed greens topper! Next up, serve them as smaller than expected cheddar balls as a gathering hors d'oeuvre. Sprinkle them with nectar and present with a collection of saltines. Visitors will take care of business their very own cheddar ball to spread on wafers – no twofold plunging here!

You can likewise serve them on a cheddar board with a grouping of cut cheeses, charcuterie, crisp organic product, and veggies with saltines, flatbreads, and hard bread.

Baked Goat Cheese Balls #cheese #appetizer

These honey drizzled crispy goat cheese bites are baked instead of fried and make a fabulous appetizer and salad topper!


  • 1/4 cup walnuts
  • 3/4 cup Italian panko breadcrumbs (panko with Italian blend seasoning mixed in)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 (8 oz) goat cheese logs
  • honey for drizzling
  • spray olive oil as needed


  • parchment paper
  • large baking sheet
  • wire cooling rack (optional)


  1. Cut goat cheese logs into 8-12 portions each (16-24 total) and roll into balls. 
  2. Finely chop and crush your walnuts until it resembles a coarse flour. You can do this with a rolling pin or wine bottle and a plastic bag or use a food processor to mince 'em up.
  3. Combine walnuts with panko in a medium bowl and set aside.
  4. Crack eggs into a medium bowl and whisk well.
  5. Working one at a time, dip the goat cheese balls into the whisked egg then into the panko bowl. Roll/sprinkle until coated on all sides.
  6. Place panko goat cheese balls spaced on a parchment paper lined baking sheet or plate and freeze for 30 minutes.
  7. When you're ready to bake, preheat oven to 465 degrees F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Place the goat cheese balls on top of the parchment and spray with olive oil. This will help them get crispy and golden.
  8. Place on the center rack and bake for 8 minutes. Depending on your oven's efficiency, check the balls at the 6-minute mark and keep an eye on them to prevent burning.
  9. Once fresh from the oven use a spatula to transfer to a plate or cutting board to cool. Leaving them on the hot baking sheet can make them melt.  You can also try to lift the entire sheet of parchment and place on top of a cooling rack. They’ll slide around a bit when lifted, but with care the whole tray can be transferred crazy quick this way!
  10. Allow to cool slightly, then drizzle with honey before serving. Enjoy as part of a tasty appetizer spread or with your favorite salad!
