Honey – 1/2 cup or as desiredSlice Red Onion and place in saute pan with sugar and cook down. Place the egg and water in a bowl and whisk. Place flour in a bowl enough to coat the goat cheese. Peel and thinly slice potatoes. Heat oil in a pan and place a few sliced potatoes in at a time till they brown a little. Take out and place on paper towels to drain oil from them. Slice goat cheese, and then round them into balls (a little less than the size of a golf ball). Dip in the egg and then dip into the flour to coat the goat cheese. Place on a plate and put into the fridge for 15 mins. Heat oil in a saute pan. Place the goat cheese in a few at a time. Turn them till they brown a little; then take out and drain onto a paper towel. Drizzle a little honey onto a plate. Place three of the goat cheese balls on the plate. Add a little of the red onion confit and a few of the potato chips.
