Bacon Pecan Cheeseball
Every party needs a crowd pleasing appetizer and these creamy, ranch flavoured cheeseballs are definitely that. I mean, what’s there not to love about bacon, cream cheese and cheddar?
200g cream cheese, softened
100g cheddar cheese, shredded
1 tbsp Ranch seasoning
3 medium green onions, sliced
3-5 slices cooked bacon, chopped
1 cup chopped pecans
Mix the softened cream cheese, green onions, ranch seasoning, cooked bacon and cheddar cheese until well combined.
Form the cheese ball mixture into a ball and then wrap tightly with the plastic wrap. Place into the refrigerator no chill for 30 minutes.
Once chilled, remove the cheeseball from the refrigerator and roll in the chopped pecans, making sure to press the chopped pecans into the cheese ball to secure. Place onto a serving platter with you favourite crackers and a serving knife.
In the case of a nut allergy you can totally leave out the pecans, it will still taste amazing! Another option is to make two smaller cheeseballs, one rolled in pecans and one without them.
Like most cream cheese spreads, this can be made a few days in advance for those busy heads during the holiday season.
