Peach and Cheese Ball Sticks

Peach and Cheese Ball Sticks ~ An Appetizer or snack on a stick is always a winner and these are absolutely divine ! Especially great to serve at a BBQ

If there is one type of food I will always give preference to, it is anything on a stick ! These Peach and Cheese Ball Sticks are no different and we all loved them.

I buy a monthly magazine, affiliated to one of our supermarkets, and I always find more than one recipe to try out in each magazine. The recent edition were packed with food on sticks {and yes, I tried more than one}, but I have to say that I changed this recipe to suit my family's taste and only stuck to the idea and somewhat of the recipe.

I served these Peach and Cheese Ball Sticks as an appetizer and they were all gone in a flash. You will also notice that I did not thread each stick in the same order, but gave preference to the cheese balls and peach wedges to use as a base {makes the sticks stand upright better}

The sticks also do not have to stand upright, you can lay them flat as well. I did a mixture on our main platter - some standing up, others I left on their sides and the platter as a whole still looked quite impressive.

I also used Yellow Cherry Tomatoes because for some weird reason, the Tomato seeds Roy and I planted this year, turned out yellow tomatoes ... the packet says RED Cherry Tomatoes, but all of them turned out yellow and also have a pear kind of shape. No idea what they are really called, but we do like them, a little sweeter than the red variety, and also a bit less tasty overall.

Stick to Red Cherry Tomatoes if you prefer, I only used the Yellow as I hate wasting any kind of food, especially when we grow them ourselves.

Peach and Cheese Ball Sticks




12 Sticks

INGREDIENTS:

200g Goat's Cheese
1/2 cup Chives, finely chopped
2 Peaches, sliced into 12 wedges, any kind  {I used Nectarines}
1/2 Red Onion, cut into small squares
6 Yellow Cherry Tomatoes, halved
12 Basil Leaves

DIRECTIONS:

1.) Divide the Cheese in 12 equal sized pieces - roll into balls and then roll into the Chives - chill to firm up {about 20 - 25 minutes}.
2.) Thread the Cheese Balls, together with the rest of the ingredients onto medium wooden sticks {the Cheese Balls and Peach wedges make the best standing platforms}

Keep chilled until ready to serve.
