Mango Chutney Cheese Ball

Reviewed: Aug. 12, 2007
I ordinarily don't go for the cheese balls, preferring to use my calorie allotment elsewhere, but this version was especially delicious. I did make a few changes for my own palate. I used a whole pound of bacon (so much for the calories!!), cooking it until it was very crispy and then breaking it into small bits. After mixing the cream cheese, 1/2 of the cooked bacon, raisins, green onions, and sour cream, I heated the mixture in the microwave until it was a creamy stirring consistency (approx 1 - 1 1/2 minutes). I stirred the mixture well, put in into a covered bowl, and refrigerated it overnight. This seemed to distribute the flavor of the onions and bacon throughout the cheese. Shortly before serving , I removed the mixture from the refrigerator, reheated it slightly so I could stir it again, arranged it on a small plate, and sprinkled more bacon bits and thinly sliced green onion on the top along with a few chopped peanuts. I served it with pita chips and the mango chutney on the side. Mmmmm...
