I Got the Recipe for the “Vanderpump Rules” Goat Cheese Balls and I Can’t Stop Making Them

These will be “Good As Gold” for your VPR watch party.


If you’ve been watching “Vanderpump Rules” since the beginning—long before James Kennedy’s iconic “Pumptini” line went viral on TikTok, or Scandoval rocked the nation—then you know the Fried Goat Balls are like a character of their own on the popular Bravo show.

With the explosive “Vanderpump Rules” reunion coming up, I knew I had to try the recipe so I could make the iconic goat cheese balls for my watch party. Here’s how it went, and whether or not they lived up to the hype.
