My grandmother makes this smoky bacon and Parmesan spread for parties and holiday get-togethers. For a pretty yuletide presentation, accent the cream cheese wreath with parsley and pimientos.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. + chilling YIELD:24 servings


  • 2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup sliced green onions, optional
  • 10 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
  • Parsley sprigs and diced pimientos, optional
  • Assorted crackers


  • 1. In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese, mayonnaise, Parmesan cheese and onions if desired. Stir in bacon. Cover and refrigerate for 1-2 hours.
  • 2. Invert a small bowl in the center of a serving platter. Drop cream cheese mixture by rounded tablespoonfuls around edge of bowl. Remove bowl. Smooth cream cheese mixture, forming a wreath. Garnish with parsley and pimientos if desired. Serve with crackers. Yield: about 3 cups.
