Recipe #5 MEGA Cheese Balls with Tomato sauce

How to make
Mega Cheese Balls with Tomato Sauce
(yields around 16 small cheese balls)

This Post is for all the CHEESE lovers out there.
I've called it MEGA as it has 3 different cheeses in it
Its Simple, Easy and Cheesy.

  1. 1 cup mozzarella cheese ( shredded ) 
  2. 1/2 cup parmesan cheese ( shredded )
  3. 2 slice cheese and shred ( any company will do )
  4. 1 egg
  5. 1 1/2 tbsp. All purpose flour.
  6. 2 tbsp. oregano powder
  7. 2 tbsp. basil powder
  8. 1/2 tsp. salt ( since cheese already has salt in it )
  9. 1/2 tsp. pepper
For covering ( 3 options ) :
  1. 1 egg (beat the egg in a bowl)
    Options either (you can choose to make all or just one type )
  1. 3 tbsp. flour 
  2. 3  tbsp. oats 
  3. 3 tbsp. bread crumbs
Ingredients for Tomato paste  :
  1. 1 tbsp. olive oil 
  2. 1 small onion chopped finely 
  3. 1 clove garlic chopped finely 
  4. 1 small tomato chopped 
  5. 2 tbsp. tomato paste 
  6. 1/2 cup cooking cream (optional ) you can use water instead 
  7. 1 tbsp. oregano 
  8. 1 tbsp. basil 
  9. 1 tsp. pepper
  10. 1 tsp.salt 

  1. Mix all the three cheeses .
  2. Add egg ,salt ,pepper ,oregano ,basil
  3. Then add the flour to form a dough.
  4. Then with your hand form small balls.
  5. Then to cover them beat one egg.
  6. Dip the ball in the egg and then dip in either flour ,oats or bread crumbs to coat.
  7. Then fry them in oil. (You do not need to deep fry them around 4 tbsp. of oil in a small pan is enough )
Method for Tomato Sauce:
  1. Heat the  olive oil in pan then and onion and garlic until they turn golden brown
  2. Then add tomato paste , basil ,salt ,pepper ,oregano.
  3. Then add the tomato and leave to cook until the tomato have become par of the paste.( It will still be bitty )
  4. Finally add cooking cream and stir leave to cook for 5 min until the sauce reduces.
  1. Do not over fry the cheese balls then should turn only a golden brown 
  2. Out of experience children have preferred the bread crumbs coating while elders have preferred the oats coating.
  3. MAKE SURE you only fry them right before serving otherwise they will dry up.
  4. Placing the cheese balls in the fridge before making them for and hour is always preferable,although it is not necessary.
