Boule de Fromage aux Herbes et au Bacon

Rated as 4.67 out of 5 Stars

"Okay. The title might seem a bit pretentious, but would anyone really look at Cheese Ball XXXVIII? This is a delicious variation on the holiday cheese ball that has been in my family for close to 40 years. It is perfect served on crusty bread or crackers. One of the nice things about most cheese ball recipes is the versatility. If you want a spicier ball, try substituting a 1/2 cup of pepper jack for the Cheddar. Don't like bacon? Use Nova lox instead. Don't like dill? Fugedabowdit! Dill makes this recipe sing! But you can play with the herbs used in the cheese ball. Who doesn't like playing with their food? Serve with crackers or a good bread. Also goes well as a spread for crudites."

Ok. I'm stacking the deck in my favor. It's my recipe, and I really like it. It is creamy, tangy and has a great texture with the bacon and green onions. The flavor that develops is so deep and ...

Maybe I'm just not a cheese ball fan... I followed this recipe exactly, but doubled it because I made two. I brought it to a french-themed dance at the high school with over 250 students. A few...

I pretty much just tried this because Doc was so confident about it. But I have to say it is great! I don't think I would change a thing but maybe a little less salt. But that is just my pref...

I love this recipe. Very flavorful and the recipe is very versatile. For my vegetarian friends I substituted bacos for bacon and for my lactose intolerant friends I used non dairy cream cheese !...
