Potato Goat Cheese Balls – The ideal party appetiser!

Potato Goat's Cheese Balls

Potato Goat cheese balls are the kind of those snacks that you will want to serve at any get together. Or simply at any time!

What are potato goat cheese balls?

Potato goat cheese balls are similar to a croquet and is made from potato and goat’s cheese. It has a crispy texture on the outside and is soft on the inside. These mini cheese balls serves as a great party snack but also makes for a great starter or side dish as well.

What type of goat cheese to use in potato cheese balls?

Goat cheese, also known as fromage de chรจvre in French, is made from goat’s milk. It pairs so well with many things because it has such a mild taste. The cheese comes in different forms and textures. For this recipe, I used a soft log of goat cheese without a rind. Rindless goat cheese will melt easier with the hot potato as opposed to cheese with a rind.

How to make the cheese balls?

  • Peel potatoes and parboil them.
  • Mash the potatoes.
  • Add dry ingredients.
  • Form into balls and roll in breadcrumbs.
  • Fry in oil.

Tips

  • Once the potatoes are cooked, drain the excess water. Allow the potatoes to steam with the lid off for about 5 – 10 minutes before mashing it. This will prevent the balls from being soggy.
  • Ensure to use the proper amount of corn starch. Using too little will result in balls falling apart.
  • Use a mini ice cream scoop to form the balls.
  • The oil should be hot but not boiling. Warm the oil on a medium heat. Using too hot oil will result in balls falling apart.

Serving suggestion: Serve with chilli sauce, sweet sour sauce or chutney.
