I do love a good cheese ball recipe, and this is one of my favorites. I made this for a small dinner party that I was hosting, and my guests loved it. With cream cheese, sharp cheddar, bacon and ranch flavoring, this one is sure to be a hit.
I served this as an appetizer, along with my zucchini bites and everyone loved them both. If you want something quick and easy that is sure to please your guests, this cheese ball is it.
I do love entertaining. I plan so many holiday get togethers and love having people over to try my latest recipes. incidentally, I made this one and had my family sample it before the party and they loved it too, even my picky eaters.
Serve this with crackers, vegetables or any other dipping type food and it’s sure to be a crowd pleaser. And if you want another great appetizer idea, try this pulled brisket sliders recipe.
