Keto Cheese Ball Fat Bombs with Crispy Prosciutto

Keto Cheese Ball Fat Bombs with Crispy Prosciutto

Keto Cheese Ball Fat Bombs

These Keto Cheese Ball Fat Bombs with Crispy Prosciutto are the bomb (see what I did there 😉) but seriously, these little bites of deliciousness make a perfect snack, appetizer or hors d'oeuvre no matter the occasion. Black tie event… they’re perfect, chilling on the couch watching the big game in sweatpants… equally as perfect.

Speaking from personal experience, if there’s a party going on you can find me near the cheese ball, that much I can pretty much guarantee. I have several reasons, first off being cheese balls are delicious… there really isn’t any argument to be made against them other that the typical tastebud delivery vessel is a cracker of some sort, which typically is too high carb for us ketonians. The second reason is if I’m at a party my party trick is to be the most introverted person there (I’m undefeated btw), and having an appetizer that requires one hand to hold the plate and another for the cracker (or flacker in my case) means I don’t have to shake hands with people I don’t know and I can stay quietly in the background aka my comfort zone.

I really want to branch out and be more personable, so I came up with a compromise. I made these cheese balls portable. Now I don’t have an excuse and, trust me on this, the best cheese ball is one that’s wrapped in prosciutto. So the next party, pot luck, or shindig you throw or attend, make sure these bad boys are a part of it. For you it means delicious little flavor explosions, and for me it could mean meeting new people or at the very least not being that awkward guy in the corner.
