Author: Aimee
Prep time: 10 mins
Total time: 10 mins
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, softened
  • 4-5 slices bacon, crisply cooked and crumbled
  • ½ bunch green onions, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup pecans, chopped
  • 1 bag pretzel sticks
  1. Beat the cream cheese in a mixing bowl until creamy and smooth. Add in the bacon, green onions, Worcestershire, garlic powder, salt and pepper. Chop the pecans and place onto a single layer on a cookie sheet. Using a mini cookie scoop, drop the rounded balls of cream cheese into the pecans, rolling to completely cover. Place a single pretzel stick into the center of each cheeseball. Chill in the refrigerator until ready to serve- at least a couple of hours to allow the cream cheese to re-harden. Serve with assorted party crackers, or additional pretzel sticks and garnish with a bit more green onions. Makes approximately 10-12 mini cheeseballs.
