Trim rinds from Brie. Combine Brie and next 3 ingredients in a large bowl, mix well with hands until combined. Shape cheese mixture into 1" balls. Dip balls in egg; dredge in flour.

Dip again in egg; roll in breadcrumbs, pressing firmly so crumbs adhere. Place brie balls on wax paper; chill at least 1 hour.

Daily Inspiration

We enjoyed these parmesan brie balls and the dipping sauce was wonderful. Loved the horseradish with the cranberry. I only made half a batch and we enjoyed them as an appetizer before our meal. They are a little labor-intensive, but definitely worth the effort.
