To make these irresistible cheese balls, you will need:

• 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
• 1/2 cup cream cheese, softened
• 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
• 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
• 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
• 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
• 2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley (optional)
• 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
• 1 large egg, beaten
• 1 cup breadcrumbs (panko works great)
• Vegetable oil for frying


Step 1: Prepare the Cheese Mixture

1. In a large mixing bowl, combine the shredded cheddar cheese, cream cheese, grated Parmesan cheese, garlic powder, onion powder, black pepper, and chopped fresh parsley (if using).
2. Mix the ingredients together until well combined. The mixture should be thick and moldable.

Step 2: Form the Cheese Balls

1. Take a small portion of the cheese mixture (about a tablespoon) and roll it into a ball using your hands.
2. Repeat the process until all the cheese mixture is used up. Place the cheese balls on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.

Step 3: Coat the Cheese Balls

1. In one bowl, place the flour. In another bowl, place the beaten egg. In a third bowl, place the breadcrumbs.
2. Coat each cheese ball in the following order: roll the ball in the flour, then dip it in the beaten egg, and finally, roll it in the breadcrumbs.
3. Place the coated cheese balls back on the parchment-lined baking sheet.

Step 4: Fry the Cheese Balls

1. In a deep skillet or saucepan, heat about 2 inches of vegetable oil over medium-high heat until it reaches 350°F (175°C).
2. Carefully add the cheese balls to the hot oil in batches, being careful not to overcrowd the pan.
3. Fry the cheese balls for 2-3 minutes, turning occasionally, until they are golden brown and crispy.
4. Use a slotted spoon to remove the cheese balls from the oil and place them on a paper towel-lined plate to drain excess oil.

Step 5: Serve and Enjoy!

Your delicious cheese balls are ready to be served! These make a perfect appetizer for parties, game nights, or just a savory snack. Serve them with your favorite dipping sauce, such as marinara, ranch, or honey mustard.
