diy cheesemonger {greek yogurt cheese balls}

Greek yogurt cheeseballs are a simple and beautiful dish that will impress your guests (or just your family!).

In this recipe I used fresh thyme for flavor, but you can do just about anything you like with cheese.  Here are some ingredients that I plan to incorporate in the future:

  • Chopped dried cranberries
  • Chopped walnuts
  • Herbs de Provence
  • Honey (drizzled)

What our house loved about these little cheeseballs was their versatility.  We might drop one into our omelettes with breakfast, spread one on a cracker as a snack, or spread on our bread with dinner.  They are such a healthy alternative to butter and they look great on the plate too!


  • Greek yogurt
  • Fresh thyme
  • Cheesecloth
  • Kitchen string


Empty container of yogurt into a large enough piece of cheesecloth that you have enough room to form a pouch.  Tie securely at the top with kitchen string.  Hang yogurt pouch over a bowl in the refrigerator.  Let hang for 48-72 hours squeezing periodically to release the liquid. Remove from cheesecloth, and form cheese into 1 inch balls.  Roll tops of cheese balls in finely chopped fresh thyme.  Sprinkle with sea salt if desired.
