Broccoli Cheese Balls – The Ultimate Appetizer
I use old, sharp cheddar cheese, but you can use the cheese of your choice. Panko bread crumbs are always my go to but Italian will do nicely too. When I made these, I didn't have shallots on hand, so I used red onions which sufficed just nicely. Make them up and your family and friends will just love them. Give them a try and let us know what you think.
