It’s been a while.
Recipe posts used to be my jam in the past. Well until I stopped sharing them.
It may be because my blog’s focus was changed from Lifestyle and Parenting to Wellness for Moms a year ago. But yeah I get it, could have still shared what I am cooking up in my kitchen occasionally. Not intentional, but a hiatus none the less. So today, I am going to correct this oversight with a cheesy gooey yummy classic cheese ball recipe! You may ask why now. Why pick today to share this delicious recipe? To that, I say why not now? After all, US Thanksgiving is coming up soon, right? And what about those holiday parties on your list? Yep. Remember, its the most wonderful time of the year.

Girls night in, slumber parties, impromptu potlucks..you name it. Possibilities are endless.
If not those, let’s not forget game nights. We always have game nights and these cheese ball snacks are perfect appetizers to take along and serve your guests for good measure of tummy thrill.
So now that we are clear on when to serve this yummy bacon and cheddar cheese balls, let’s talk about the nitty-gritty. Pretty quick to make using simple ingredients- just the way I like it! I hate when a recipe I am working on calls for a hard to find ingredient and I have to send a search party to grocery store STAT. None of that with my cheese balls ladies.
Have a look at the recipe below and I promise you, my long ranting intro was worth the wait! 😉
