Bacon Cheddar Cheese Ball

This Bacon Cheddar Cheese Ball is always a party favorite!  Super creamy, loaded with bacon, and wrapped in pecans for a delicious and easy appetizer!

I don’t know about you, but I am getting SUPER excited for the holidays! Our first Christmas party is coming up this weekend, and I have yet to decide what food I’m bringing. Big fancy holiday meals are great, but let’s face it… what I really look forward to are all the appetizers! I could seriously make a meal out of shrimp cocktail, chips and dip, brown sugar bacon-wrapped weinies, and spinach artichoke dip. I’m kind of drooling a little just typing that…

I have a vast collection of appetizer recipes I love, but this one has always been at the top of my list: the Bacon Cheddar Cheese Ball. It has just 6 ingredients (plus crackers for serving), can easily be made ahead (perfect for parties!), and is just simply delicious. Savory, creamy cheese spread, loaded with real bacon pieces, and wrapped up in a blanket of crunchy chopped pecans… this NEEDS to be part of your holiday! Or Super Bowl! Or birthday! Or New Year’s! … you get the picture. ;)
