Cheese Balls are really Appitizing!

  Cheese Balls, one of the Hors d'Oeuvres (Appitizer) of French cuisine. I got the recipe from 'Mastering of The Art of French Cooking', and I'm about to share it to everyone. Well, you don't have to cook, actually, just blend everything together and form it with your hand! Doesn't it sounds easy? It's quick to be done, by the way.

Cheese Balls
½ lb blue cheese
4-6 tbsp butter, softened
1½ tbsp chives or minced green onions top
1 tbsp finely minced celery
Pinch of cayenne pepper
Salt if needed
1/8 tsp pepper
1 tsp cognac or a few drops of Worcestershire sauce

Ingredients for coating:
½ cup bread crumbs
2 tbsp finely minced parsley

1.      Blend cheese and butter together, after that, along with the rest of the ingredients. Check season carefully, don’t add salt if the mixture is salty enough.
2.      Roll into ½ inch diameter balls.
3.      Coat with the bread crumbs mixture. Chill in refrigerator before serving.

Bon Appetite!!
