The most delicious version for stuffed cheese balls

Cheese balls

We prepare crunchy cheese balls: light because they are baked in the oven and stuffed with ham and smoked cheese.

Today, we are dedicated to a really tasty idea for an appetizer suitable for a perfect lunch with friends. Cheese balls are an excellent snack to enjoy at the table. The exterior is made up of a crunchy coating of breadcrumbs , made light by baking . You can also choose to fry these delicious nuggets, but in the oven they will be much lighter.

The filling is the strong point of this preparation. Made almost entirely of cheese – whether it is buffalo stracciatella, stracchino or any other of your taste – it also hides other ingredients. The heart of these balls is enriched with ham and scamorza cheese , which give greater consistency to the stringy and hot filling . Don’t waste any more time and fasten your apron!
