Cheesy Balls of Heaven

On the weekends, John gets a chance to cook more.  He is much more of an original and experimental cook than I, and that usually leads to some yumminess.  This weekend was no exception.  He invented.....


No joke.  They are that good.  

He shredded up a chunk of raw cheddar cheese.  The quality of the cheese you use will impact the finished product.  
He rolled the cheese into little bite sized balls.
In 1 bowl he mixed together raw whole milk and pastured eggs.

In the other, breadcrumbs and some seasonings.  He used 1/2 panko and 1/2 whole wheat breadcrumbs.
In a small pot, he heated up some virgin coconut oil as his frying medium of choice.
As it heated, he rolled each cheesy ball in the egg/milk and then the breadcrumb mixture.

Once the coconut oil was hot, he dropped them in a few at time.
When they were brown enough, they drained.

Let me tell you.  It sounds easy (and it is, really) and boring, but this was AMAZING.  I took a bit of one and said, "WHOA!!! Little cheesy balls of HEAVEN!"  Really.  It takes a lot for me to say that.  Or say anything while shoveling food into my face, for that matter. 

Make this.  NOW.
