The Bacon Cheese Ring is an amazing appetizer that makes you look like a super chef, with very little effort. This recipe is perfect for holiday parties, football watching parties, baby and bridal showers, and small groups. I have also made this recipe as a cheese ball because I forgot the pan and was making it at church. If you make it in ball form, make sure to finely chop the pecans.  Stretch and I love anything with bacon and cheese so this is right up our alley. Made one of these for Stretch’s birthday Monday. it went over so well. i am making another for Thanksgiving.


3 Cups Shredded Cheddar Cheese

Smalls helping me make the ring

½ Cup Heavy Mayo

½ Cup Bacon Bits

½ Cup Mozzarella Cheese

1 Cup Cream Cheese, softened

½ Cup Green Onions

¼ Cup Chopped Pecans


In a large bowl, mix shredded cheese, mozzarella cheese, chopped onions and bacon bits. Mix in

I used wax paper to make it easier to remove.

cream cheese and mayo. Stir until it gets firm, it may not hold if it is not firm at this point.

Grease a tiara pan, pie pan or bundt pan. I used a bundt because I like the shapes. Sprinkle edges with pecans. And put in cheese mixture. I refrigerate until ready to serve however the recipe I have does not say you have to. Flip the ring unto a platter and place strawberry preserves in the middle. Serve with butter crackers or pretzels.

Smalls and I made this recipe for Stretch’s Birthday party. This,  corn salad, baked beans, Cream of Cilantro Soup, rolls, double the Tater Tot Casserole and the ultimate chocolate cake fed 18 people.
