At our house we love cheese even though it is super fattening. Fried cheese is even better. However, if you fake the fried by sticking them in the oven, they are just as yummy and not quite as high in calories. LOL!
- 1 cup of whole wheat flour
- 4 Tablespoons of soft butter
- ¾ cup of shredded cheddar cheese
- ¼ cup of Romano cheese
- 1 egg yolk
- ¼ cup of olive oil
- Dash of salt
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
In a bowl, mix all the ingredients and blend well. Make a dough ball.
On a floured surface, roll the ball with a rolling pin as if you were making a pie crust. Fold it in on itself several times and knead. It should feel soft and a bit greasy.
Let it rest for 5 minutes and then pinch off pieces and roll into balls. Try to keep the size of the balls about the same so that they will bake in the same amount of time.
Before placing in the oven, sprinkle a little bit of salt over the tops of the balls.
Bake for 20 minutes or until they are brown and bubbling. Cool on a rack or some waxed paper.
