Ingredients

  • 2 8 ounce packages cream cheese
  • 3/4 cup white cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 1 Tablespoon tomato paste
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 2 teaspoons hot sauce
  • 1 teaspoon prepared horseradish
  • 1/2 teaspoon celery salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup green olives stuffed with pimentos, chopped
  • 3/4 cup crumbled bacon or bacon bits (try to find ones that are real bacon)
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped
  • RITZ crackers
  • Cut up celery

Instructions

  1. In a large bowl, use a mixer to combine cream cheese and white cheddar.

  2. Add tomato paste, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, horseradish, celery salt, black pepper and chopped green olives and mix well until fully combined.

  3. Use a spatula to scrape all the cheese mixture in to the middle of the bowl and pop it into the refrigerator to chill for a good 10 minutes (to make it easier to roll into a ball).

  4. Mix bacon crumbles and parsley in a bowl until fully combined. Using your (clean) hands, roll the cheese into a ball and carefully roll it in the bacon and parsley mixture.

  5. Wrap the cheese ball in plastic wrap and place it into the refrigerator to chill for at least and hour or until you're ready to serve it. 

Recipe Notes

This can be made the night before and should stay good in the refrigerator for a few days.
