Yields8 Servings
Prep Time10 minsTotal Time50 mins
Ingredients
 2 8 oz packages cream cheese
 1 tbsp tomato paste
 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
 2 tsp hot sauce
 1 tsp prepared horseradish
 ½ tsp celery salt
 ¼ tsp ground black pepper
 ½ cup green olives stuffed with pimentos, chopped
 ¾ cup crumbled bacon or bacon bits (try to find ones that are real bacon)
 1 tbsp fresh parsley, chopped
 RITZ crackers
 Cut up celery
Instructions
1

In a large bowl, use a mixer to combine cream cheese and white cheddar.

2

Add tomato paste, Worcestershire sauce, hot sauce, horseradish, celery salt, black pepper and chopped green olives and mix well until fully combined.

3

Use a spatula to scrape all the cheese mixture in to the middle of the bowl and pop it into the refrigerator to chill for a good 10 minutes (to make it easier to roll into a ball).

4

Mix bacon crumbles and parsley in a bowl until fully combined. Using your (clean) hands, roll the cheese into a ball and carefully roll it in the bacon and parsley mixture.

5

Wrap the cheese ball in plastic wrap and place it into the refrigerator to chill for at least and hour or until you're ready to serve it.
