Recipe type: Appetizer
Serves: 10
  • 4 slices of bacon, chopped and cooked
  • 10.5 ounces goat cheese
  • 1 cup sun-dried tomatoes in oil
  • ½ cup fresh basil, finely chopped
  1. Slice the bacon into small pieces. Cook till the perfect crisp. Set aside on paper towel to cool and drain. If some of the pieces are still too big break into smaller pieces.
  2. While the bacon is cooking, chop the sun-dried tomatoes fine. Place in shallow dish. Add the finely chopped basil to the sun-dried tomatoes.
  3. Add cooled bacon to the sun-dried tomatoes and basil. Stir till combined.
  4. Using a teaspoon, make little balls of goat cheese using your hands.
  5. Roll the goat cheese ball in the sun-dried tomato mixture, coating the entire ball. Repeat. This will make 30 little bites/balls.
I have found that as I measure the goat cheese, if I put the dollops (before I roll them) on the sun-dried tomato mixture and continue until I have 8-10 dollops done. Then stop and roll them into shape and then coat the balls in the mixture. You won’t have messy hands between making each ball: ie: measure, roll, coat, wash hands, repeat. You will wash your hands less and have more of any assembly line: ie: measure 10, then roll, coat, wash hands, repeat only 3 times!

You don’t want them bigger than a rounded teaspoon, as the balance of flavors will not be the same.

You can put a toothpick in them to server or not.

Crumble one or two in your scrambled eggs. Yes I did!

I have made these the day before for a party and they store well. They might store longer but I wouldn’t know as they are gone after 3 days! Delish!
