Lazy Goat Cheese & Bacon Goodness Balls
One 4 oz package goat cheese (makes 7 balls)
A splash of olive oil
½ a package of lean, center-cut bacon
Preheat the oven to 350. Cook about ½ a package of bacon on a cookie sheet for about 20 minutes like usual.
While the bacon is bakin’, crumble the log of goat cheese and put it in the bowl with a tablespoon of olive oil.
Then roll it into small balls - smaller the better because the cheese is so rich. If they balls are not sticking together, add a splash more olive oil.
Once bacon is done, let it cool then crumble it. The smaller the bits, the better they’ll stick to the cheese. Gather the crumbles on a plate.
Roll cheese balls into bacon bits until they’re mostly covered. Some pieces may not stick, so stick them by hand.
Once they are all covered, put them on a cookie sheet or pan then into the freezer for 30 minutes to let them set.
These can be made the night before and refrigerated overnight.
So easy, right?! We popped these little balls of goodness in our mouths all night until we moved to Bobby Kennedy Pie for dessert. Yum.
