In a bowl combine goat cheese with minced garlic. If the mixture seems too dry, add a teaspoon of olive oil and mix. Roll into bite-size balls then roll into toppings. Place cheese balls on a parchment-lined tray and refrigerate. Remove from fridge 30 minutes before guests arrive.
. Next time I’m going to add grated Parmesan to the cheese balls for added cheesiness and texture. Olives marinated tend to mellow in flavor so even those who profess not to like olives will be pleasantly surprised. Buying pitted olives will not only make it easier for your guests to eat, they won’t need to look for a place to dispose of the pit. Enjoy!
