Bacon Horseradish Cheese Ball

Cheeseballs have been a staple at our annual Christmas party, every year for as long as I can remember. When I was a girl, I used to scrape all the nuts off and get into the cheesy center, which probably always drove the adults crazy, ruining her pretty presentation.

Today as an adult, the nutty outer part is my favorite, paired with the cheese and a cracker, it is the best snack ever! Especially when those nuts are paired with crispy bacon.  

This year, I am taking over the cheese ball making and putting my own twist on it with zesty horseradish, honey mustard, and bits of applewood smoked bacon. This is so easy to make, and it is sure to be a huge hit at all get togethers. 

Today, I am guest posting for my friend Katie at Healthy Seasonal Recipes. To snag this recipe click HERE. Your holiday parties will not be complete without this cheese ball, trust me.
