    Rita~'s Note:

    Celebrate your holidays with cheese balls made with bacon and horseradish. Designed as a pine-cone, a wreath or a snow man. Yes you can just shape into a ball. The holidays can be stressful and hard to handle this Holiday Party Appetizers can be made 2 days before being served giving you time to take care of other things. This is easy and no cook if you use the jarred bacon bits. You can make all three with this one recipe or make all balls for gift giving with fabulous crackers.

      This was quick and easy, at a time of year when snacks and appetizers are often needed! I did find that there were too many flavours, but the recipe was made for a contest which required the cook to use a number of listed ingredients, so she probably couldn't get round that problem. The hot sauce plus horseradish was a little over the top. In the end I used more cream cheese. I rolled mine in very finely chopped parsley, which looked nice and didn't really add yet another flavour dimension. Sorry, no photo, there simply wasn't time!! Thanks, chef!!!
