After looking at many cheese ball recipes that didn't fit my family's tastes, I made one up to serve on New Year's Eve. Everyone loved and it was super simple to put together. I didn't roll my cheese ball in chopped nuts, but you could certainly do that or even roll it in additional crumbled bacon.

  1. Combine all ingredients in a med-large size bowl.
  2. If your cream cheese is soft enough, you can stir this by hand or you can use a hand-mixer until well combined.
  3. Spoon out onto plastic wrap big enough to fold over top and form cheese mixture into a smooth bowl, wrapping plastic wrap around ball to seal.
  4. (If desired, roll cheese ball into chopped nuts or additional cooked and crumbled bacon before wrapping.).
  5. Place in refrigerator for 1-2 hours so flavors blend.
  6. Serve with crackers, bagel chips, veggies, etc.
