Bacon Jalapeno Cheeseball || Recipe

8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
3/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese 
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
2 jalapeños, stems and seeds removed, diced, divided (or leave seeds if you want it really zippy!)
6 pieces cooked bacon, crumbled, divided (about 6 ounces)
Salt to taste
Mix together in order given, reserving a little of the jalapeños and bacon for the end. Form mixture into ball. Roll in remaining jalapeños and bacon until covered. Chill covered for an hour. Serve with crackers.
All ready to go...complete with the pinterest recipe on the screen. 
ingredients and trusty kitchen tools....
it is nothing short of a miracle that this much bacon survived and made it into the cheese ball. sister and I both have a rather shocking love for bacon and it is SOOO good when its hot and crispy.
adding the cumin...
I have this thing for green onions. period. 
they are like my version of comfort food. I could put them in EVERYTHING.
{except chocolate cake of course}
mix it all together....
the finished product!
and it was amaaaaazing! just, when you make yours, remember to refrigerate! =)
and speaking of would NOT believe how many people have come up to me in the last three weeks and asked me how I'm doing. wow. quite humbling.
 I was like, "did I REALLY tell the whole world that I had food poisoning?"

Happy cooking!

  2. Don't be to hard on yourself! Maybe it'll help all of us to remember to keep our stuff refrigerated.

I agree bacon and onions are good in most things savory! Hugs! Merry from
