You have to try these creamy fried balls stuffed with goat cheese and drenched in buffalo sauce.

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 pinch black pepper
  • 1 1/2 cups Panko breadcrumbs
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 1 log (10 ounce) goat cheese
  • oil, for frying
  • chopped green onions or chives, for serving

For Buffalo sauce:

  • 4 tablespoons salted butter, melted
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ cup Frank's Red Hot Sauce
  • 3/4 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • 1 pinch black pepper

Instructions

  1. Portion out cheese into small balls using the melon baller
  2. Add the flour and a pinch of pepper to a medium bowl. Add the egg and 2 tablespoons water to a separate shallow bowl and beat. Add the Panko to another medium sized bowl and add salt.
  3. Roll each goat cheese ball in the flour, then dip through the egg mix, and then dredge in the Panko mix. Place each ball on the prepared baking sheet as you work. Freeze 20 minutes or until firm.
  4. Heat 1-2 inch 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.
  5. Meanwhile, make the buffalo sauce. Mix all ingredients together in a small bowl. If the butter firms up, warm the sauce in the microwave. 
  6. Arrange the balls on a serving plate and drizzle with buffalo sauce. Sprinkle with chives or green onions. Serve and enjoy!
