Bacon and Gouda cheese ball
2 boxes of cream cheese
1 package of Bacon bits and pieces
1 package of ranch powder
1 package smoked gouda
Sliced smoked almonds (optional)
Dice the smoked gouda into small pieces. Mix the cream cheese and the ranch powder to evenly distribute the ranch flavor. Mix the bacon pieces and gouda cheese into the cream cheese. Roll into a ball. Roll smoked almonds around outside of the cheese ball, if you chose. Refrigerate to harden.
This is a family favorite. I made a 3-pound cheeseball for Thanksgiving and it was gone in 2 hours!
