Step 1: Prep Goat Cheese

First, take your goat cheese log, and separate into 24 tablespoons. Then roll each tablespoon into 24 small goat cheese balls.

Step 2: Mix Ingredients

In one bowl, combine flour and black pepper. In a separate bowl, whisk egg, salt and 2 tablespoons water. In a 3rd bowl, add panko and chives.

Step 3: Roll Goat Cheese

Next, you're going to roll each goat cheese ball into the following order of mixtures: 1st the flour, 2nd the egg, 3rd the panko.

Step 4: Prep Oil for Frying

Pour your two cups of oil into a saucepan on medium-high heat until 350 degrees F.

Step 5: Fry Goat Cheese Balls

In a few batches, fry your goat cheese balls for 1-2 minutes until golden brown. Remove from oil with a slotted spoon, and place onto a paper towel lined plate. Repeat until all are fried. Let cool slightly.

Step 6: Plate, Drizzle, and Serve

Put your goat cheese balls on a serving dish, drizzle with balsamic vinegar, and serve.
