Mini Cheese Balls

Raven Higheagle


These Mini Cheese Balls are a perfect appetizer or snack for parties. I make them at most of our gatherings and they are always a big hit! Trust me, you can’t go wrong with some ooey, gooey cheesy balls and a beer on the side. Plus you can have these delightful treats done in less than 30 minutes as they are super easy to make.
You can combine parmesan and cheddar cheese or use parmesan and a blend of chesses like mozzarella, provolone, fontina, romano and asiago.

How to Make Mini Cheese Balls

  2. Mix well until mixture holds together and shape into small balls (~ ¾ tablespoon each).
  3. Make sure your cheese balls are not too big since they will almost double in size when you fry them.
  4. Fry cheese balls in hot oil until golden brown.
  5. You should have enough oil so your balls are almost completely covered.
  6. Drain on paper towels.
  7. Place 3 balls on each wooden skewer for serving. Serve with you favorite marinara sauce or ranch dressing.
    Make sure that the skewer doesn't poke through the last ball.
