Fried Bacon Pimento Cheese Balls
Ingredients
45 minutes
32 pieces
  • 12 oz Palmetto Cheese – Original, Jalapeno or Bacon
  • 1 pkg Pillsbury Grands! 8 ct.
  • 1 – 12 oz pkg Bacon sliced
  • 3 cups Canola Oil for frying
  • toothpicks

  1. Open up the Pillsbury Grands! and cut each dough round into 4 pieces. We sprayed our cutting board with a little pan spray to keep the dough from sticking.
  2. Flatten each piece out with your hand. This will allow more surface area for putting cheese.
  3. On the middle of each round, place a teaspoonful of Palmetto Cheese. Don’t go crazy on the cheese or you won’t be able to fold the dough together. After you make a few, you’ll get the hang of it. To make the pouch, fold the dough in half and seal the edges. Bring the edges into the middle to form a little pouch or purse. Press the seams all together to keep the cheese from escaping.
  4. Now to wrap it all up in bacon!! Instead of cutting all of the bacon, we just laid out a slice, rolled up the ball until it made one rotation and then sliced the bacon. You should be able to get 3 cheese balls wrapped per slice of bacon. Secure the bacon by pushing a toothpick through the cheese ball.
  5. Heat a saucepan of canola oil up to 350 F. Make sure to have yourself a plate with some paper towels on it to soak up the grease and have a home for the fried cheese balls. Fry the dough until golden brown. This should take 2-3 minutes. Do a test one first to make sure your oil isn’t too hot. Once it looks like it’s done, take it out of the oil, let it drain and cut it in half. If your dough is still raw, make sure to cook them a little longer.
