Basil Goat Cheese Balls

Raven Higheagle


I love goat cheese, I love basil, I love small appetizers and cheese balls. Being a food blogger, recipe developer, and retired pastry chef means 3 things...I'm always in the kitchen when I should be sleeping, I spend a small fortune on groceries, and I spend my days on the computer.
Well, back to the subject at hand, Basil Goat Cheese Balls, I can pretty well make a cheese ball out of anything and everything. Cheese balls are easy to put together, they're always a hit at any party and homemade is much better than store bought.
