Festive Feta Cheese Ball

(taken from Taste of Home)


♦ 2 packages (8 ounces each) cream cheese, softened

♦ 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese

♦ 2 teaspoons ranch salad dressing mix

♦ 1/4 cup shredded (NOT GRATED) parmesan cheese

♦  1/4 cup crumbled cooked bacon

♦  1/2 teaspoon dill weed

♦  Assorted crackers and veggies


In a large bowl, beat cream cheese until fluffy. Add feta cheese and dressing mix; mix well. Shape into a ball. (Sometimes I refrigerate it a little before I roll)

In a small bowl, combine the Parmesan cheese, bacon and dill weed; roll cheese ball in Parmesan mixture. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour or until firm.  Serve with crackers or veggies! Yield: 2 cups.
