Cream Cheese Ball is always a crowd pleaser!
A Cream Cheese Ball is always welcome at any event. One of my brothers made this for a family gathering many years ago and shared the recipe with me. I have since made it numerous times and every time someone else wants the recipe too. The deviled ham seems to be what gives it just the right flavor that people love.
To make it gluten free or lower carb, use real cooked, crumbled bacon instead of the Bacon Bits.
The cheese part can be made the day before but the Bacon Bits will get soft so should be put on at the last few minutes if possible.
Serve with crackers or for a healthy and delicious low carb option serve with cucumbers, peppers, celery or other vegetables.
