Parties just wouldn’t be the same without cheese balls, and these minis pack a big flavor punch with smoked gouda, bacon and sundried tomatoes.
package (8 oz) cream cheese, softened
oz smoked Gouda cheese, shredded (1 cup)
cup cooked real bacon bits or pieces (from a jar or package)
cup finely chopped drained sun-dried tomatoes in oil
cup finely chopped pecans or 2/3 cup finely chopped parsley
In medium bowl, mix cream cheese, Gouda cheese and bacon bits until well blended. Stir in tomatoes. Cover; refrigerate 45 to 60 minutes or until firm enough to shape into balls.
Place pecans in small shallow bowl. Shape cheese mixture into 28 (1-inch) balls, about 2 teaspoons cheese mixture for each ball. Roll in pecans to coat.
Serve immediately, or cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to serve (up to 24 hours).
