A delicious and easy way to enjoy a cheese ball. Serve with crackers and enjoy! You can cut this recipe in half to make a smaller version. You could substitute Colby, mozzarella, or Monterey Jack cheese for the Cheddar the recipe calls for.

USE REAL BACON BITS! :) I made one with the pecans and one with real bacon bits and the bacon one was way better and was gone much faster. I also suggest NOT using the Chicken in a Biscuit crackers that others suggested. After I read the reviews I got them and they were way too salty with this already salty cheese ball. Luckily I got those big round wheat crackers too and it was great with those. Will make again and again!

I have made this several times now since finding the recipe. I personally like it better the first day when it still has a strong flavor, but we like a lot of flavor in the South! It was better when I made it with Extra Sharp Cheddar, and I threw in a splash of worcheshire and chives. Also, I shaped it by putting saran wrap on top and forming it into a half cirlcle. It is also easier to eat that way. Soooo Good!!!

This is such a pleasant surprise! A perfect, easy appetizer that travels well. Great for big parties! Take NOTE: This recipe is supremely better when served the next day (I've done both). Any reviews regarding "too much" seasoning were probably served the same day. When allowed to set overnight, the flavors really blend together wonderfully.
