    Fisher Nutty Bacon Cheese Ball

    Source of Recipe


    List of Ingredients

    1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese , softened
    1/2 cup milk
    2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
    1/4 cup (1 ounce) blue cheese , crumbled
    1/4 cup finely minced green onions (white part only)
    1 jar diced pimento , drained
    3/4 cup Fisher pecans , divided (Of course, any nut will do!)
    10 slices bacon , cooked, drained, finely crumbled and divided
    Salt and pepper
    1/4 cup minced parsley
    1 tablespoon poppy seed


    Place cream cheese in mixer bowl. Attach bowl and flat beater to mixer. Turn to Speed Two and mix 1 minute. Stop and scrape bowl. Turn to Speed Two and gradually add milk, mixing until well blended about 1 minute. Stop and scrape bowl. Add cheeses, onions, pimientos, half of the bacon and half the pecans. Turn to Speed 4 and beat until well blended, about another minute. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

    Transfer mixture to a large piece of plastic wrap. Form into a ball and wrap tightly.

    Refrigerate (or freeze) at least 2 hours.

    Combine the remaining bacon and remaining pecans, parsley and poppy seeds in a pie plate. Then, remove the plastic wrap and roll the cheese ball lightly in the bacon/nut mixture until evenly coated. Wrap it back up in plastic wrap and refrigerate again until ready to use.
