Ever since this summer when I discovered the bacon horseradish spread at the local grocery store I've had in mind to make this cheese ball for the holidays. It's a very simple concoction with just a few ingredients that is best made at least 3 days ahead of time so the flavors have time to "marry". It can be rolled in whatever you choose like nuts, finely shredded cheddar, or parsley etc. I chose the cheddar because I knew I would have help to eat it if that is what I used. My husband and I have been enjoying little bits of it for a snack or as part of a light meal.
12 oz. Cream Cheese, softened
½ cup Bacon Bits
½ teaspoon Smoked Sea Salt
½ c. finely shredded Cheddar Cheese
2 Tablespoons Horseradish, drained
½ Tablespoon sugar
Mix together well. Form into a ball and roll into whatever you choose.(nuts, parsley, or cheese)Refrigerate. Best if made 3-4 days in advance. Serve with crackers of your choice.
Have a wonderful day!
