Elevate your party game by making your own Petite Fromage de Boule, a.k.a. Cheese Bites! Both tasty and quick (2 dozen in 10 minutes, anyone?), these tantalizing finger foods are easy party appetizers and can be made with crave-worthy flavors like salmon and dill, fruit and nuts or your own favorite combos.

Salmon & Dill Cream Cheese Bites
  • 8 ounces Gina Marie Cream Cheese
  • 2 ounces Echo Falls Wild Alaskan Smoked Salmon, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped dill
  • 1 cup finely chopped dill

Smoky Bacon & Blue Cheese Bites
  • 8 ounces Gina Marie Cream Cheese
  • 4 ounces Rumiano Smoked Mozzarella, shredded 
  • 2 ounces Point Reyes Original Blue Cheese, crumbled
  • 4 ounces cooked bacon, chopped
  • 4 ounces pecans, chopped
  • ¼ cup fresh Italian leaf parsley, chopped 

Orange Blossom Honey Chèvre with Dried Fruit
  • 5.4 ounces Laura Chenel Orange Blossom Honey Goat Cheese
  • 2 ounces Bellwether Farms Carmody, shredded and chopped
  • ½ cup dried apricots, chopped fine
  • ½ cup dried cranberries, chopped fine
  • ¼ cup fresh Italian leaf parsley, chopped
  • Zest of 1 large lemon

Combine all core ingredients of your chosen cheese bite until completely incorporated. Roll mixture into small balls roughly the diameter of a nickel and set aside.

Combine all coating ingredients and mix thoroughly. Gently roll each cheese ball in the mixture to lightly coat one side, then roll cheese bite around in your hand until evenly coated on all sides. Insert one pretzel stick into each cheese bite and arrange on a serving plate.

And just like that, elegant, delicious and amazing appetizers are done!
