Garlic Bread Balls

If you are like me the the best bite on a piece of garlic bread is a toss up between the crunchy edge and the warm buttery center. These Garlic Bread Balls have both without the bread! I seriously think I am in love with these. I got the idea while perusing Pinterest and decided to de-carb it and spice it up. The original recipe can be found here.

I bit on in half so you could see the inside.
Its a tough job but someone had to do it.
Garlic Bread Balls
You will need:
2 1/2 cups of shredded Italian cheese blend
3/4 cups grated Parmesan cheese ( I used the kind in the green canister)
1 Tsp baking powder
2 Tsp garlic powder (less if you are not a garlic lover)
1/2 Tsp oregano
4 Tbsp finely ground almond flour
2 Eggs
Oil for frying
In a large bowl mix all of the ingredients except for the oil in a large bowl, it will look chunky not smooth. Roll small 1/2 Tbsp size balls between your hands.  The dough will have a smooth texture once the are rolled. This made about 40 for me. Heat about 1 inch of oil in a frying pan. Carefully add the cheese balls  to the oil a few at a time leaving room to roll them around. Fry the Garlic Bread Balls until they are golden brown on the bottom then roll them gently over to brown the other side. they will puff up in the process. Drain them on a paper towel and serve warm.
