Not too long ago, I was asked to cater a family event for a few dozen people. I had a pretty good idea what I wanted to bring to the party but needed some inspiration. So what do we all do when we need some inspiration? Yeah we Google it.


This BBQ Bacon Cheese Ball recipe was adapted from multiple recipes floating around the internet. Serve it with some crackers and you have a great appetizer for your guests.


How to Make this Recipe


In a large mixing bowl, combine half the bacon, half the green onions, cream cheese, cheddar cheese and BBQ sauce.


Mix until all ingredients are well combined. Salt to taste.


Form a ball with mixture and wrap tightly with plastic wrap. Refrigerate until mostly firm, approximately 1 to 2 hours.


Put remaining ingredients on a plate and combine using fingers.


Unwrap cheese ball and gently roll the ball around until it is coated with bacon mixture.


Serve immediately or wrap and refrigerate.
