When it comes to watching sports games, food and appetizers are a must. The excuse to enjoy unique recipes like this Lemon Herb Goat Cheese Ball is my favorite part of sports. It’s March and that means a certain popular basketball season is upon us. Whether you’re an avid fan that watches every game, or just enjoying the occasional gathering with friends, this cheese ball is a quick and easy appetizer.
It’s ready in minutes and only requires a few ingredients. Cheese balls are a common appetizer for parties, but I haven’t seen many goat cheese recipes out there. The combination of goat cheese, herbs and green onion pair together into a unique recipe that will be a hit with any sports fan.
To serve this Lemon Herb Goat Cheese Ball, you’d of course need to pair with crackers. TRISCUIT® Crackers from NABISCO are best for toppings. They’re made with three simple ingredients: whole grain wheat, oil and sea salt. This lets the flavor of you’re toppings shine through and compliment the crackers. During your sports viewing, you can also serve POWERADE® Mixed Berry. The 20 oz. 8-pack is on sale right now for $3.99 at Target. You can also save 25% off TRISCUIT® Crackers with the Cartwheel offer.
Making this Lemon Herb Goat Cheese Ball will take no time. You can prep right before the game starts of even during a commercial. Simply mix together goat cheese, cream cheese, lemon zest, sliced green onion, and fresh thyme and rosemary for perfect for game-time snacking.
