So very good – cheese, horseradish, and bacon? How could it be bad?
1 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese (2 1/4 ounces)
2 tablespoons finely chopped onion
1 tablespoon prepared horseradish
2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley
1 1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
2 slices bacon
1/3 cup toasted chopped walnuts
Assorted vegetables and crackers, for serving
Mix both of the cheeses, the onion, horseradish, 1 of the tablespoon parsley, Worcestershire, salt to taste and 1/4 teaspoon pepper in a medium bowl until evenly combined. Form the cheese mixture into a ball, cover with plastic wrap and chill until firm and the flavors have blended, at least 4 hours or overnight.
Remove the cheese ball from the refrigerator up to 30 minutes before serving. Cook the bacon in skillet until crisp, transfer to a paper towel, and when cool crumble. Mix the bacon with the nuts and remaining tablespoon parsley in a shallow bowl. Roll the cheese ball in the mixture so that it is coated evenly. Serve with vegetables and crackers.
