Bacon Ranch Cheddar Cheeseball

Bacon Ranch Cheddar Cheeseball

There are few things I love more in this world than a big ball of cheese. (I’m a classy and complex person.) But this isn’t just any ball o’ cheese. It’s got BACON, (um. ‘nuff said.)…

….and Ranch, 2 kinds of cheese, and ch-ch-chives. It’s sinfully delicious, good lord.

If you need to think of an appetizer in a bind, this will save your life. Who doesn’t like a good dip?! Dips are delicious. I think it’s the hint of ranch in this that makes it so good.

Are you one of those people that adds ranch to everything?

Like your pizza, broccoli, and whatever else?! Because if soooo… you’re welcome.

I think everyone’s lives get busier in the summer- no? So who has time to cook up crazy concoctions for all of those get-togethers, BBQ’s, and whatnot? Not me! And I have a food blog, so, that poses a problem. But we’ll cross that bridge when we get to it, eh?

Please let me know how awesome you think this is when you try it- it’ll make my day.
