    List of Ingredients

    ◦ 8 slices bacon
    ◦ 8 ounces cream cheese, cut into small pieces
    ◦ 8 ounces white cheddar cheese, grated (about 2 cups)
    ◦ 2 tablespoons sour cream
    ◦ 1 tablespoon ranch seasoning (half of a 1-ounce packet)
    ◦ 5 scallions, white parts finely chopped and green parts sliced
    ◦ Cooking spray
    ◦ Crackers, for serving


    Cook the bacon in a large skillet over medium heat, turning, until crispy, 6 to 8 minutes. Remove and drain on paper towels.

    Combine the cream cheese, cheddar, sour cream, ranch seasoning, scallion whites, and two of the bacon slices in a food processor and process until well combined, about 30 seconds.

    Chop the remaining six slices of bacon and mix with the scallion greens on a plate; spread it out. Scoop the cheese mixture onto the plate with a rubber spatula. Coat your hands with cooking spray and shape the cheese mixture into a ball. Roll and press the ball in the bacon-scallion mixture to coat. Refrigerate the cheese ball for at least 1 hour and up to 8 hours.

    Remove from the refrigerator 30 minutes before serving.
    Serve with crackers.

    Makes 8 to 10 servings
