  • Food Processor
  • 1 Tablespoon Cookie Scoop


  • 1/4 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/4 cup gruyere cheese
  • 1/4 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup shredded swiss cheese
  • 1/4 cup gorgonzola cheese
  • 4 oz goat cheese OR cream cheese
  • 1/4 cup panko breadcrumbs
  • 2 tbsp Everything But The Bagel Seasoning


  • Using whatever leftover cheese you have, place it all in the food processor. It makes it easier if the cheese is already cubed or cut up.
  • Pulse until a crumbly yet creamy "dough" forms. It should stick together when you squeeze some in your palm.
  • If it's still too sticky, add extra shredded cheese until it sticks together.
  • In a small dish combine the panko breadcrumbs along with the everything bagel seasoning.
  • Using a small 1 tablespoon cookie scoop, scoop the cheese into balls. Remove from the scoop and gently roll in your hand to create a perfect ball.
  • Roll each ball in the panko/ bagel seasoning mixture and you are ready to serve them!
