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
- 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.
