A friend of mine gave me this recipe several years ago. I was looking for a cheeseball recipe the other night and didn't have a lot of ingredients on hand. When I stumbled across this one in my recipe box, I knew I had what I needed to make this one (with a few substitutions). It's been a while since I made this and I forgot how good it is and so easy! Below, you will find the original recipe along with my substitutions.
Bacon Cheddar Cheese Ball
2 8 oz. pkgs. cream cheese, softened
1/2 c. Miracle Whip (I used real mayonnaise.)
1 T. sugar
2-3 T. thinly sliced green onions (I used a few shakes of onion flakes.)
1 jar (2.8 oz). Hormel real bacon pieces (I used 6 slices of bacon, cooked and crumbled.)
1 cup cheddar cheese
