My mother in law gives me lots of fresh cheese every month. We rarely eat it all so I use it when I cook instead.Today I had an urge to make cheese balls and so I did. it turned out wonderfully! It's extremely easy to make and a prefect snack. Don' mind the calories though *lol*
Fried cheeseballs (makes 20)
2½ cup grated fresh white cheese (queijo mineiro)
1tbsp Cheddar soft cheese (or other flavor)
salt and pepper
bread crumbs mixed with flour
Mix the cheese in a blender, add chili sauce, garlic sauce and salt and pepper. Stir in the soft cheese, preferably work the cheese with your hands so that it becomes like a dough.
Use a teaspoon as measurement and shape into small balls. Beat the egg lightly, roll the cheese balls in it and roll in breadcrumbs. Fry until golden brown and serve immediately.
