Mozzarella sticks are a thing of the past. These small, crispy, balls are filled with a creamy, sharp, oozing center of goodness and are a great Game-Day snack. Using the sweetness of the sundried tomatoes against the subtle cheese flavors infuses the crust and bursts with each bite. Pair them with a variety of sauces or garnish with some fresh herbs. Also, great for the lunchbox or a quick after school snack.


  • 4 sun-dried tomatoes in oil
  • 30 grams chopped walnuts
  • fresh basil leaves
  • 200 grams cheese (Fourme d'Ambert, or any high quality blue cheese)
  • 100 grams cream cheese
  • 4 crepes


  1. Combine choppped sundried tomatoes, walnuts and 6 finley chopped basil leaves.
  2. In a medium bowl, mash the blue cheese and mix with cream cheese using a fork, until smooth and creamy.
  3. Add tomatoes, basil and hazelnuts.
  4. Mix well to get a thick paste.
  5. With a teaspoon, form balls of about 1.5 cm each. Flatten them slightly.
  6. Cut each crepe into strips of 2 cm wide.
  7. Wrap each cheese ball with the crepe strip, so they are completely enclosed.
  8. Insert a toothpick on each ball and garnish with a basil leaf.

I added slightly less blue cheese than the recipe called for, just because it’s all I had on hand. I love these flavorful balls. They were terrific and are an easy appetizer to make!
