A festive, zingy appetizer option, perfect for holiday entertaining.

1 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened

½ cup shredded Cheddar cheese

¼ cup crumbled blue cheese

4 strips thick-cut bacon, cooked and crumbled

2 green onions, sliced

3 tablespoons chopped pecans

3 tablespoons chopped dried cranberries

 

For the outer layer:

2 green onions, sliced

2 tablespoons chopped pecans

2 tablespoons chopped dried cranberries

2 tablespoons crumbled bacon

  1. Place all the ingredients in a bowl and stir or knead together until thoroughly combined. Form the mass into a ball or log (whichever shape desired) and wrap it in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least one hour or up to 2 days.
  2. Toss the outer layer ingredients together and spread them out on a plate. Roll the cheese ball in them to evenly coat the surface.  Serve with your favorite Croccantini crackers.
