Garlic & Bacon Cheese Ball {With simple ingredients}

 Cheese Ball with Bacon Cheddar Garlic and Walnuts

Last year when we offered the charcuterie kits, we included recipes to pair with your epic charcuterie spreads.  One of those recipes was for the most amazing cheese ball.

Made with crumbled Lazuli Farms bacon, cheddar, garlic from Fifth Gen Gardens, green onions, then rolled in more garlic plus walnuts, this cheese ball is a flavour explosion!

The great thing about this cheese ball is that it's made with ingredients you likely have on hand all year round.  If you don't have fresh green onions, you can sub in onion powder or minced dehydrated onion flakes.

It's the reason why we keep a block of cream cheese in our fridge at all times!  You never know when you'll have the hankering for an easy, appetizer supper!

Garlic & Bacon Cheese Ball Recipe


  • 1 block cream cheese, 8 ounces (2 cups)
  • 1/3 cup crumbled, cooked Lazuli Farms bacon
  • 1/2 tablespoon Fifth Gen Gardens granulated garlic
  • 1 cup grated cheddar cheese
  • 2 green onions, diced (or 1 teaspoon minced, dehydrated onion or onion powder)
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, for topping
  • 1 tablespoon Fifth Gen Gardens granulated garlic


Warm cream cheese at room temperature for an hour to soften.

In a medium bowl, mix cream cheese with bacon, garlic, cheese, and onions. Using your hands, mix ingredients together and form into a ball.

Spread the walnuts and garlic on a plate in a thin layer. Roll the cheese ball in the walnut-garlic mixture to completely coat the cheese ball.

Place the cheeseball on a plate and chill in the fridge for 30 to 60 minutes to firm up.

Serve with veggies, crackers, pretzels on a beautiful wood serving board.
