It wouldn’t be a Super Bowl party without some bacon right?  Today’s recipe for a Bacon and Green Onion Cheese Ball won’t leave your guests asking “where’s the meat?” A cheeseball is usually a party pleaser and this one is extra yummy with the addition of BACON!  I also love that this cheeseball gets a coating of parsley in stead of nuts. You can even forgo shaping this into a ball and coating it in parsley.  Just place it in a bowl and you are set.

The original bacon and green onion cheese ball recipe made one large cheeseball but I made two smaller ones.  It was easier to manage and you can always freshen the platter with the second one.

  1. Would it still taste okay if I substitute sour cream for the mayo? My family isn’t big on mayo. Though I myself think it sounds amazing.
