How to make it
In a bowl mix together the goat cheese, honey, thyme, ½ tsp. sea salt and ¼ tsp. pepper. Adjust as needed. Roll the cheese into 1 oz balls (golf ball sized) and set them aside.
Put panko onto a plate and season it with the remaining salt and pepper. Place the flour into another bowl.
Roll the balls in the flour, then egg, then panko, covering well. Place onto a plate and do this for all of them. Once coated, place the plate of cheese balls into the freezer for 30 minutes to harden them up before frying.
Heat the oil to 350°F in a shallow pot or dutch oven. Then fry the balls 4 or so at a time. Fry them for 5 minutes until they are golden brown and crispy. Do this for all of them and set aside on paper towels to drain off excess oil.
Garnish them with chopped chives, red pepper flakes and a little drizzle of honey. (optional). Serve with Lee Kum Kee Sriracha Mayo for dipping.
