Either make them fresh - it takes no more than 30 minutes from go to whoa, or make several to freeze.

You can make them the traditional method by rubbing butter into the flour, but I choose to make them using rice bran oil which is much healthier. Good quality vegetable oils like sunflower oil and rice bran oil do not have saturated fats and naturally this helps with minimizing our consumption of cholesterol.

Furthermore, combining oil with flour is a much quicker process. The end result, I find is identical.

These cheese balls are also ideal for packed school lunches or for a pot luck dish. Oh yes, they're also terrific for picnics. They store well in an air tight container.

Absolutely yummy!

Now, how easy was that - truly one of our fast easy recipes!


I advocate using non-stick silicone bake ware so as to omit the process of lining and greasing baking tins. Not only does it take time to do this, but there's more grease or fat being consumed.

Using good quality cooking oil with a high flash point such as sunflower oil or rice bran oil is far preferable to the use of saturated fats like butter. (I too, love the taste and feel of butter, but as we all know, it's not such a healthy choice)
