We LOVED this cheeseball! It took me all of 5 minutes to whip this up and it may have disappeared just as quickly at our Memorial Day get-together! I wasn't sure how many bacon bits I would need. I bought one bag of the original real bacon bits and it was the perfect amount! Thanks for a great recipe! I've been requested to make this one again! UPDATE: This recipe made it into my Book #235514 cookbook! I bet I've made this recipe 20 times and everytime it vanishes in a matter of minutes! :) Thanks, again, Cheesehead! This is a keeper!

I took this to my daughters for Thanksgiving for snacking before the big dinner and everyone loved it. This will be made again for sure. Thanks for posting!

This was a huge hit at our Superbowl party! It is a very simple recipe with a strong cheese/ranch flavor. The bacon bits added the perfect amount of crunch. I used reduced-fat cream cheese and it was still delicious! It was difficult to form into a ball and roll in the bacon bits (perhaps because I use the lower-fat cream cheese), so I just incorporated the bacon bits into the mixture, put it all in a bowl and smoothed down the top, and then pressed more bacon onto the top surface...yummy!!

I made this for Thanksgiving. I'd planned to post a photo for this one but, the family got to it before I could snap one. This thing was amazing. I used the entired 2 cup package of colby jack cheese..perfect! Thank you! Now I have to make TWO for Christmas! :D

EXCELLENT ! Served this an appetizer at Thanksgiving and it was devoured. Very simple and held together nicely. I did add an extra cup of cheddar cheese ( I dumped the entire bag in by mistake ) and it was still really good - more promounced cheddar taste. This is definitely a keeper. THANKS
