Wonderful blend of flavors in a simple to make party dish. Omitting the curry (personal taste) I threw it all in the food processor along with some garlic powder, cayenne pepper and a handful of pecans halves. I formed mine into logs and rolled them in Hungarian paprika and a little more cayenne. After chilling, they sliced beautifully! Thanks for the recipe!
After being fired with enthusiasm for your Best Ever Ginger Cake recipe (do try it, it's fabulous) - I thought I'd give this a go. Didn't have curry powder, but used a good dollop of Sharwoods Rogan Josh Curry paste intead, and it tasted great. The paprika is a professional touch as these cheese balls look like a lot more work was involved. My kind of cooking. Thanks for posting this recipe Kookaburra.
Wow, these are excellent. The flavour of the paprika and curry powder really go well together. Very easy to make and they look fantastic. I made mine in my small blender processing the harder cheeses first. Great with a glass of wine or icy cold beer. Thanks Kookaburra for a recipe that I will use often.
These cheese balls were absolutely delicious! I made them using Metsovone,a smoked cheese available in Greece, and they were amazing. Highly recommended to anyone who has never made a cheese ball before as this was my first cheese ball. You can't go wrong.
I just loved the photo Gayla submitted so I saved your recipe Kooka. Well I made them for a party yesterday and they were great. I actually made them twice - the second time I subbed with light cream cheese and light tasty cheese and added a little garlic powder and some chopped parsley along with the rest of the ingredients. The parsley helped guests distinguish low fat from the original once they had been attacked. Thanks for sharing Kooka, they are going into my Favourites cookbook.
These were great! I added garlic powder and minced red bell pepper for color and additional flavor. Beautiful presentation!
I can see why you requested the recipe for these from the chef, as they are wonderful. Considering the amount of paprika involved, I would definitely use one of good quality (I used Hungarian). These cheese balls disappeared in a hurry--thanks for sharing the recipe!
Yum, Yum - very tasty cheeseballs, Kooka. I made them to serve with drinks and bikkies over Christmas and they were a hit with everyone. Love the look of them and the taste is wonderful. The only change I will make next time is to make a double amount.
