Bacon, Cheddar and Swiss Cheese Ball
Total TimePrep Time: 20 min. + chilling
Makes2 cheese balls (4 cups)
My guests raved about this cheeseball at a holiday open house. It makes two large cheese balls so I was able to have another for our family Christmas. Personally, I found the pickle relish overwhelming so I would leave that out next time.
I have made this for years, however I make approximate 1 1/2 inch individual cheeseballs and put a pretzel stick in each one for serving.. Trust me, your guests will love you even more.
Addictive! A lot of ingredients, but they all work together. This requires a bit of work, however, it's a make-ahead dish. Your guests will love you for this one!
This cheese ball is beautiful and tastes fantastic! I love the way the coating of fresh parsley, poppy seeds, bacon, and toasted pecans creates a splash of color to any appetizer display. My guests loved it and couldn't get enough of it. I followed the recipe with two exceptions. I added 1/2 teaspoon of garlic powder and 1/4 teaspoon of garlic salt. I'm new to making cheese balls so I was surprised that it was fairly labor intensive. (frying up a pound of bacon, cutting up fresh parsley, toasting nuts, chopping pimento. But it was all so worth it! I liked the fact that it made two cheese balls instead of one. That way....I had something to take to two different events in the same week. You should add this to your recipe to your collection! Yum!
