Ingredients

6 slices side bacon, chopped
8 oz (250 g) Sharp Canadian Cheddar cheese or 
Extra Sharp Canadian Cheddar* cheese, cubed
1/4 cup (60 mL) butter, cubed
2 tbsp (30 mL) chopped fresh parsley
2 tbsp (30 mL) chopped green onions
2 tbsp (30 mL) drained hot banana pepper rings, or to taste
3/4 cup (180 mL) toasted pecans, chopped finely

Preparation

Cook bacon until crisp; drain well reserving 1 tbsp (15 mL) drippings. Set bacon and drippings aside. Combine Sharp Canadian cheese, butter, parsley, green onions and banana pepper rings in bowl of food processor fitted with metal blade.

Cover and process until smooth, stopping machine to scrape down sides of bowl as necessary. Add bacon and drippings to bowl and process until bacon is finely chopped.

Chill mixture 3 hours or until firm enough to roll into 2 dozen balls, about 1 inch (2.5 cm) in diameter. If mixture softens too much during rolling, return to refrigerator until firm.

Roll balls in chopped pecans and store in refrigerator up to 2 days before serving. Garnish as desired. Serve with crackers.

Variation: shape cheese mixture into 1 large log or ball; roll in chopped pecans before chilling.

Tips

*For a change of taste use Canadian Swiss, Gouda, Provolone cheese.
