Blue Cheese, Bacon and Green Onion Cheese Ball

The holidays are always full of social events. What would it be without a cheese ball rolled in crunchy walnuts? Usually I make mine with Imperial Cheddar from Canada, some softened blue cheese and a package of Philly. This year, something a little different… did I mention it is Keto friendly, if you dip bacon rinds?

Blue Cheese, Bacon, And Scallion Cheeseball

Serves 10


  • 4 pieces bacon, chopped and fried and drained to make bacon bits
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, room temperature
  • 2 scallions (green onions), minced
  • 2 Tablespoons parsley, chopped and divided
  • 1/4 cup gluten-free blue cheese crumbles (or more, depending on taste)
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup chopped unsalted walnuts, raw or lightly toasted


1 In a medium bowl, combine the bacon bits, cream cheese, scallions, 1 tablespoon parsley, blue cheese crumbles, pepper, and salt. Stir together to mix.

2 Using hands or a spatula, form the mixture into a ball. Wrap with plastic wrap or place in an airtight container. Refrigerate for at least two hours.

3 Place the walnuts and reserved tablespoon of parsley in a small bowl. Stir to combine.

4 Unwrap the cheeseball and roll it in the walnut mixture to coat all sides. Press the walnut coating gently to help it stay on if necessary.

5 Store in an air-tight container in the refrigerator.

Got this recipe from our friend Diane’s cleaning lady. Make sure you do it the day before so it gels…

Yucatecan Lime Cheese Cake


1 sleeve of ‘Maria’ cookies (these are much like an Arrowroot cookie)

1 14 oz. can of evaporated milk

1 14 oz. can Eagle Brand/sweetened condensed milk

1-2 teaspoons lime zest

1 8 oz. package soft cream cheese

½ cup lime juice

Mix all ingredients in food processor EXCEPT the cookies!!!!!!!!!

In a very lightly greased square Pyrex dish, place a layer of cookies, followed by a layer of topping. Repeat the process with another layer of cookies and then more topping. If you have sufficient topping and cookies do another layer.

NOTE:  FOUR layers are pretty rich !!!!!
