Want to make fried goat cheese for a party? It’s easier than you’d think and SO tasty! These bite size goat cheese balls are always a hit so be sure to make plenty!
One of the best things about throwing a party is making all the appetizers. I love making party food and have made everything from avocado deviled eggs to jalapeno poppers with cream cheese and bacon (SO yummy!)
One thing I’d been wanting to try was fried goat cheese. It was always our favorite appetizer when my friends and I used to go out for girl’s night so I wanted to recreate it at home. It was a lot easier than I’d though and these fried goat cheese balls with panko turned out amazing!

Fried Goat Cheese
Start with 6 ounces of goat cheese and slice it into 12 pieces. Shape those pieces into balls using the palms of your hands. Place the goat cheese balls on a piece of wax paper and put in the freezer for just a few minutes so that they’re not too soft when you coat them.
Dredge the balls in flour, dip in egg, then coat with Panko crumbs.
Heat your oil (I used olive oil) to medium high and drop them in, turning quickly so that they cook evenly on all sides. Remove them once they turn a golden brown. Sprinkle a few chives on top and serve hot with marinara for dipping. These were so melt in your mouth good that you’d better make plenty…they won’t last long!
These taste great with the marinara but I’ve also seen them drizzled with honey too. I may try that next!
