Bacon & Cheddar Cheeseball (New Recipe)

This is a simple and quick appetizer that you can make with little fuss. 

Everything's better with bacon right?  *-* 

If you need a little something something to take to your next holiday gathering, go ahead and make this one. It's sure to be eaten up. 

I found the recipe at Chocolate Moosey. I tweaked it a bit by using dry Ranch dressing instead of the spices...and used a little more. 

This will keep well for a few days so feel free to make ahead. 

Enjoy soon!


1 - (8 ozs.) box cream cheese, softened
1-1/2 c. shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon salt
(or substitute 1/2 pkg. dry ranch dressing for spices)
1/2 c. crumbled cooked bacon (about 5-6 cooked slices)

In a large mixing bowl, beat together the cream cheese, cheddar cheese, onion powder, garlic powder, and salt. Form the mixture into a ball and wrap in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours or overnight.

In a small bowl, add the bacon. Unwrap the cheese ball and roll into the bacon until completely covered. Refrigerate until ready to serve on crackers. For easier spreading, remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before serving.
