You have to try these. These creamy balls of goat cheese come drenched in Buffalo hot sauce. If you like mozzarella sticks, these are kind of the same — but even creamier. Make them as an appetizer on game day or for movie night.


For Buffalo sauce:



  1. Portion out cheese into small balls using a melon baller. Tip: The colder the cheese is, the easier it will be to work with.
  2. Add the flour and a pinch of pepper to a medium bowl. Add the egg and 2 tablespoons of water to a separate shallow bowl and beat with a whisk. Add the Panko to another medium sized bowl and add salt.
  3. Roll a goat cheese ball in the flour. Next, dip the ball into the egg mix. Then, dredge it in the Panko mix. Place it on the prepared baking sheet and repeat with the remaining goat cheese.
  4. Freeze the goat cheese balls for 20 minutes or until firm.
  5. Heat 1 to 2 inches of oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Fry the goat cheese balls in batches, 1 to 2 minutes or until golden and crisp on all sides. Remove and drain on a baking sheet with a rack.
  6. Meanwhile, make the Buffalo sauce. Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl. If the butter firms up, warm the sauce in the microwave.
  7. Arrange the balls on a serving plate and drizzle with Buffalo sauce. Sprinkle with chives or green onions and serve.
