My Oven Fried Cheese Balls

Norma DeRemer


Well guys and gals, I'm still on a health kick; but had to find a recipe for cheese balls. Thanks to my good neighbor's recipe I made these last night and what a good tast with out the calories. Regular recipe for these are 84 fat grams and 1060 calories. Well folks, these little treats are only 5 grams of fat and only 177 calories. What a big difference and still have a wonder taste on what use to be one of my favorite things to order while dinning out. Well no more. These are a keeper and I will be making them again for sure. Only hard part of eating these is watching not to eat them all.
