An entire packet of ranch mix is too much. I used bulk ranch dressing mix and just one tablespoon and it wasn't quite so salty. Otherwise, this recipe is EXCELLENT. I thought I wasn't going to be able to make cheese balls since they are usually coated in nuts and my kids are allergic. Bacon! brilliant!
I can't believe I haven't written a review of this yet. I have made it several times, and it is easy and great. Always a hit! Thanks for sharing!
Super AWESOME! Easy & huge crowd pleaser! Thanks for sharing!!
Very good! Simple!
Very good! I actually used the Hidden Valley Ranch Fiesta Style to give it a kick.... I also had some left over & hit it up in the microwave a few secs the next day for a snack... mmmmm...
This is SO good. My 11 year old son wanted a cheese ball so I came to zaar to find one and decided on this one and I am so glad I did. This is awesome. The family had this on movie night and noone could stop eating it. I did add the bacon bits in with the shredded cheese so I didn't have to roll it in bacon. That is the only thing I done different from the original recipe. I am going to make this again for our christmas get together. Thank you so much for a family favorite.
I made this recently for two different holiday gatherings. Everyone loved it, and they were amazed that I was a newbie at making cheese balls. I had several requests for the recipe, too. I did make several changes based on the comments: I cut the recipe in half, I mixed some bacon into the ball, and I added green onion. Also, the leftovers kept great in the fridge for a week until I finally finished it off. Thanks for sharing!
I'm so sorry I forgot to rate this! I made a triple cheese ball to use for Turkey Appetizer and it worked out beautifully. The leftover cheese ball was softened and made into cheesy hashbrowns. Very tasty and couldn't be easier. Thanks for sharing.
