Honey Pecan Bacon Cheese Ball

Honey Pecan Bacon Cheese Ball has some surprising ingredients that work amazingly well together! Try something new this holiday season! It’s supposed to be in the shape of a “ball,” but I got lazy. 😁 Thank heavens y’all don’t expect perfection out of me. 🤗 I love the unique taste of this one!

I got the idea for this cheese ball from the Hormel website. I didn’t have some of their ingredients on hand so I worked with what I had. I think it’s delicious! If you take a chance based on my taste buds, let us know what you think of this recipe!

Honey Pecan Bacon Cheese Ball

  • 1 (8-oz) package cream cheese, softened
  • 1 cup shredded cheddar cheese, whatever kind you have
  • 2 tbsp apple butter, or cinnamon applesauce if you have no apple butter
  • A pinch of cayenne pepper
  • ¼ cup real bacon bits
  • ½ cup honey glazed pecans, coarsely chopped
  • Assorted crackers or toasted baguette slices

In bowl, beat together cream cheese, shredded cheese, apple butter and cayenne until combined.

Stir in bacon; shape mixture into ball or just spread in a pretty, shallow dish.

Refrigerate until firm.

Roll cheese ball in chopped pecans or sprinkle over top just before serving.

Happy eating! 😊
