"This Smokehouse Cheese Ball is another one of my hubby's yummy recipes. We enjoyed it as an appetizer before Thanksgiving dinner this year. It has the most delicious, smoky flavor and is a perfect topper for your favorite crackers. This recipe is an easy appetizer or snack for any party or get-together that you might be having this holiday season."
1 cup shredded mild cheddar cheese
1/3 cup chopped scallions or green onions
1/4 cup Hormel Real Bacon Bits (from 3 ounce container-found by salad dressings)
4 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon liquid smoke (Found on the condiment aisle near the ketchup)
1/4 teaspoon onion powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon salt
3-4 ounces of Smokehouse Almonds, finely chopped
Using a mixer, blend together cream cheese and cheddar cheese until combined. Mix in green onions, bacon bits, Worcestershire, liquid smoke and seasonings. Stir until completely combined.
