My Fairly Heart Smart Cheese Ball

Ingredients
8 oz. fat free cream cheese
16 oz. lowfat shredded cheddar
2 tbsp. chopped fresh onion
Dash of Worcestershire sauce
1/2 - 3/4 tsp. garlic powder (to taste)
2 tsp. bacon bits
1/2 cup chopped nuts or fresh parsley

Procedure
Puree onions with cream cheese until cheese is fluffy. Add all ingredients except nuts or parsley & mix by hand until well mixed. Form balls, roll in nuts or parsley. Wrap in SARAN & refrigerate at least 12 hours to marry flavors.

Serve with low fat crackers and veggies.

Note: If you do the whole operation in a food processor, the mixture will be a little softer & I often do it this way to serve as a cheese spread instead of forming into balls.

I used to make a cheese ball every holiday season, and quit when so many people are watching their foods. This is great! I'm trying it very soon.

Thanks,
Cas
