Cheese Balls

These were a real favourite when I was working and making morning teas. And the best thing is you can make a large batch and only cook what you need and freeze the rest. They are not diet friendly but just one is a good treat!

Ingredients
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 egg white, lightly beaten
200g Parmesan cheese, grated coarsely
1 cup fresh breadcrumbs (you can't use the dry ones)
1 tbsp parsley, chopped
1 tbsp chives, chopped
1/2 tsp paprika
1 tbsp sweet chili sauce
olive oil for shallow frying

Method
  • Combine egg, egg white, cheese breadcrumbs, herbs, paprika and sweet chili sauce in a bowl.
  • Shape into level tablespoons of mixture and roll into balls.
  • Refrigerate until ready to fry or freeze if more than 24 hours.
  • Shallow fry in the olive oil in small batches and drain on absorbent paper.
