Brie Balls with Spicy Cranberry Dipping Sauce

Serve these Parmesan-crusted fried cheese balls right after frying so the centers are warm and oozy.

32 balls

Recipe from

Oxmoor House


2 (8-ounce) rounds Brie
1/2 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1 1/2 teaspoons minced garlic
4 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups Italian-seasoned breadcrumbs
Vegetable oil


Trim rind from Brie. Combine Brie and next 3 ingredients in a large bowl; mix well with hands until combined. Shape cheese mixture into 1" balls. Dip balls in egg; dredge in flour. Dip again in egg; roll in breadcrumbs, pressing firmly so crumbs adhere. Place brie balls on wax paper; chill at least 1 hour.

Pour oil to a depth of 2" in a Dutch oven; heat to 350°. Fry cheese balls, in batches, until golden, about 1 minute; drain on paper towels. Serve immediately with Spicy Cranberry Dipping Sauce.
