bacon - cooked and crumbled
shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
chopped fresh parsley
This is a very tasty combination of ingredients. The sweetness from the dressing works well with the salty bacon. I made half this recipe as I only needed a small cheese ball. The mixture is very soft at first. I wrapped the ball in plastic wrap and refrigerated it for about an hour before rolling in the parsley and nuts.
Good, easy and minimal ingredients. I'll make it again.
This was my first time to make a cheese ball. I was pleased over-all, but it was REALLY hard to get it into a ball shape. Maybe it's just me, but it was sooooo gloopy that I could barely get it together and roll it in the parsley. I do think it needs more flavor--garlic and herbs. Ironically I liked it better the same day I made it, not the next day. The sweetness of the french dressing had permeated the flavor by the next day and I am not into that flavor combo. I may make it again if I know it will be eaten the same day, and with the addition of some ranch (or Italian) dressing mix.
