1 1/2 cups
shredded Cheddar cheese
Love this more as a dip! We layer it onto a tray and then cover it with a small jar of raspberry jelly. Scoop it up with club crackers. YUM!
I made this, here are my thoughts for the review: It was a very decent flavored recipe. I made with Mexican shredded cheese for it was what I had on hand and Bac-O's bacon bits, because I wasn't sure the actual specification(which I liked in this)with regular mayo as well. Tasting this alone with crackers can be a bit salty. But having said that, using crackers actually takes that saltiness away and compliments the cheese ball. One thing I noticed in the mixing(preferring to the making into a ball) was it being extremely greasy from the mayo and slightly hard to shape. I shaped it after I wrapped in plastic. I would recommend a decrease of mayo by either a 1/8th to 1/4th cup of mayo. But either way it did taste rather good.
Excellent. I was not sure this would be a good one, but I thought that the bacon bits and other flavors melded overnight, and it hads a very good taste. I shaped it in the saran wrap.
I found this recipe in October while preparing for Thanksgiving. I made this Thanksgiving day and it was a huge hit! I have made it several times since then and it is always a hit! This recipe has become a staple at my house~thanks for sharing!!!!
I was surprised how good this recipe is, I used 1/4 cup light mayo and sharp cheddar cheese plus 1 tsp of minced garlic and it was delicious. I think I will use this recipe again but substitute cream cheese in place of the mayo.
