  • Honey
  • Crushed Walnuts
  • 1 tbsp. crushed black pepper

  • 1 large egg
 

Directions

  1. Cut log of fresh goat cheese into 20 pieces. Roll each into the shape of a ball.

  3. In a large bowl, add egg and club soda, and whisk.
  4. Whisk cornstarch and flour into egg and club soda mix
  5. Place panko crumbs and black pepper on a large plate.
  6. Dip each ball in batter and immediately roll thoroughly in panko until covered in a thin layer. Repeat.
  7. Place each ball onto baking sheet and place in freezer for 10-15 minutes.
  8. In a large cooking pan, heat a few inches of vegetable oil at 395 degrees.
