Okay, Christmas is over.
Now it's time to focus on bringing in the New Year.
You are going to want to produce some of the best
Here is a cheese ball that I created just for that purpose.
Olives and feta go hand-in-hand, correct?
That's what I thought....
So, I put together this olive and feta cheese ball.
But I didn't leave it at just olives and feta,
I also rolled it in real bacon....
Everything is better with bacon, right?
And the bacon along with the salty olive and feta is perfect.
This is awesome smeared on your favorite cracker.
I served mine with bagel chips.
Yum, yum, yummmmy!
The crackers shown above are Ritz Garden Vegetable.
Olive Feta Cheese Ball
2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, soft
2 TBS mayonnaise
2 tsp. lemon juice
1 (8 ounce) package crumbled feta cheese (your choice of flavors)
1/2 c. minced onion
1 c. chopped green olives
1 package Real Bacon pieces
In a medium bowl, blend cream cheese, mayonnaise and lemon juice. Mix in feta cheese crumbles, onion, and olives (I used my Kitchen Aid mixer with the whip attachment). Once everything is mixed together, form into a ball shape. Cover and chill in refrigerator for about 3 hours. Remove from fridge and roll in real bacon pieces (I purchased the real bacon in the dressing isle).
