Do You Do Cheese…on New Year’s?

Mmmmmmmmmmmmmm… cheesy, beefy, bacony.

I had this idea to do a cheese ball for New Year’s Eve, but didn’t have a recipe. I had made some sort of cheese ball a few years back and all I remember was throwing it out after it had sat in the fridge for quite a while. Yeah. Not great.

So I decided to try again. This time I figured I would use things that my kids love – chipped beef lunch meat and bacon. Tasty! Here is what I did:

2, 8 oz. bricks of cream cheese

1 Tbsp. granulated onion

2 servings, about 12 slices of chipped beef lunch meat, chopped into approximately 3/4 inch pieces.

This is the brand of lunch meat I bought.

1 cup real bacon crumbles (either bacon bits that are real bacon or make your own with real bacon!)

Chopped chipped beef.

Soften the cream cheese (I used my microwave at 50% power for two minutes, but be careful as microwaves vary greatly! To the softened cream cheese add granulated onion, beef lunch meat, and bacon bits. Mix together with a hand mixer. Place mixture on a large piece of plastic wrap and wrap it up. Form into a ball and place in fridge for at least an hour, or until firm.

Mix well and roll into a ball with plastic wrap.

When firm serve with Gluten-Free crackers, celery, or your favorite cheese ball holding device! Happy New Year, everyone!
