Bacon Ranch Cheese Ball

This cheese ball was one of the super bowl snacks I made.  I would say it was my favorite snack of the night too.  I rolled the cheese ball in bacon instead of nuts and boy did that ever bring out the flavor in the spices.

The cheese ball was soft and spreadable

Bacon Ranch Cheese Ball

1  8 ounce block cream cheese, softened
1/2 C sour cream
1 tsp dried parsley flakes
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp dried chives
1/4 tsp oregano
1/4 tsp tarragon
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp lemon pepper
1/2 C bacon, fried and chopped

Fry bacon, drain and set aside.  Put all remaining ingredients in mixing bowl and mix well.  Scoop cheese ball mixture out of bowl and make into a ball.  Gently roll the cheese ball in the bacon.  Wrap cheese ball in plastic wrap and chill until ready to serve.
