So here is my cheese ball Recipe, it's quick, easy to throw together and very hard to stop eating once you start!
Bacon Cheddar Cheese Ball
2 packages (8oz.) cream cheese
1/2 lb. sharp cheddar cheese, grated
1/2 cup chopped green onions
6 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled
1 clove of garlic, minced
3 tbsp. green olives with pimento, chopped fine
3 tbsp. minced fresh parsley or 1 tbsp. dried
First get all your ingredients ready.
Combine all ingredients in a large bowl or Kitchen Aid with paddle attachment and blend well. I used marble cheese because that's what I had on hand.
With clean hands, form into balls.
I usually make six. It all depends on how big or small you want them.
Wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight to allow flavours to blend.
To this batch I also added 3 tbsp. of chopped pickled jalapenos to half of the mixture and topped them with a jalapeno piece to label them.
