Food Friday: The Avenge Me Cheeseball

So I know it's a bit late for International Cheeseball day (April 17th), but I introduced my family to the wonders of the cheeseball last night.

None of them knew what a cheeseball was, or what to expect.

Boy did they get a surprise - of the delicious kind!

As my whole family was munching on the yummy cheeseball I explained that the cheeseball is a staple of the office party.

That's when Terry and I got a little carried away with thinking about the power of the cheeseball at an office party.  This is what came of it:

Hence the name I've given this cheeseball - the Avenge Me Cheeseball.

Yeah... I've got too much time on my hands and not enough drawing skills.


Anyway, here's what the actual cheeseball looked like:

It's really a Bacon/Ranch cheeseball.

And here's the easy recipe:

- 2 packages cream cheese
- ranch dressing (about 1/3 cup)
- real bacon bits (1 package or make your own)
- 2 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese

- squish the cream cheese into a mash.  Add the ranch dressing until the cream cheese become more spreadable.  I think I used about 1/3 cup.  Mix in grated cheese.  Form a ball.  Lay the bacon bits out on a plate. Roll the ball in the bacon bits to coat.  Wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours.

Spread on crackers and enjoy!
