small grappa-flavoured goat cheese balls
Easy-peasy! These small goat cheese balls can be made ahead of time in a flash. They make a fresh, flavourful and original – also, very refined – addition to pre-dinner drinks.
Preparation : 15 minutes
Efficiency : 20 balls
1. Roll the cheese into small balls of about 1 tsp. (5 ml) and transfer to a large, shallow dish.
2. In a small bowl, combine the grappa with the parsley, garlic and oil. Season with salt and pepper. Pour mixture over the cheese and cover. Refrigerate and let marinate for 1 to 2 days.
3. Bring the cheese balls to room temperature. Serve them with some toasted bread and olives warmed for a few minutes in a frying pan with a little olive oil, garlic, dried basil and oregano.
