This unique cheese ball is easy to prepare. A spread of sweet strawberry preserves tantalizes the tongue before savory bacon and cheese take center stage. Serve with crackers!

This is really good. I served it on Father's day as an apppetizer and I had to print out the recipe for everyone! Instead of making it into a ball form, I used a small bundt pan to shape it. I spooned the strawberry preserves into the hole in the center. Made for a very pretty presentation. Give it a try!

I made this for a retirement party and it was a big hit. Instead of strawberry preserves I used raspberry jam.
