Bacon Dill Cheese Ball

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by CraftScout

This is a great spread. I got it originally from, but have modified it (because studding a cheese ball with almonds to make it look like a pine cone definitely gets the wow factor, but is a pain in the patootie!). Also, this tastes really yummy in tea sandwiches, spread thinly between thin slices of hearty bread.

I used a light cream cheese. In case you do this recipe and wants to add salt, I suggest you to taste it first. Because the bacon makes it salty enough (for our taste). And my bacon is 8 % of sodium. That's a great spread for crakers. I love it. Thanks Craftscout. Made for Photo tag.
