Camellia's Bleu Pig...

An easy versatile cheese ball with cheddar and bleu cheeses and bacon, lots of it!
Course: Appetizer
Cuisine: American

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound extra sharp cheddar cheese grated
  • 1/2 pound cream cheese
  • 1/2 pound sliced bacon fried crisp, crumbled
  • 2 Tablespoons grated yellow (or mild) onion finely grated
  • 1/4 pound bleu cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 3-4 drops worchestershire sauce to taste

Instructions

  • Have all ingredients at room temperature, mix together cheddar and cream cheese together- add bleu cheese, grated onion, garlic salt and Worcestershire sauce together- mixing all loosely. Add crumbled bacon last evenly distributing over the cheese mixture and incorporate carefully. Shape into one medium size ball or 2 logs. Freezes well.

*I enjoy serving this cheese ball for a crowd, however, I tend to make it up into logs. Allow to soften before serving. Slices from these logs are a perfect topping for grilled steaks or baked potatoes. *Note if you aren't a fan of bleu cheese- feel free to increase the amount of with cheddar or another type of cheese you prefer.

  • And a special treat, smear on a dark leafy green such as baby collards, roll and cut in cigar fashion, pile onto a platter or along with other offerings on a cheese board.
