Mysterious Cheese Ball

" At the first bite, the combination of ingredients is very mysterious and addicting. I always get requests for the recipe every time I serve it. *Remember to ask your guests about peanut allergies before serving."


1 8oz. package of cream cheese, at room temperature.
1-1/2 Tablespoon sour cream
1/3 Cup small-sliced green onions
1/4 Cup chopped raisins
1/2 Cup chopped peanuts
1/4 Cup "Bac-Os” bacon bits
1-1/4 Teaspoon curry powder
1/4 -1/3 Cup apricot jam
1 Bunch fresh parsley (optional)


Using a mixer, combine the cream cheese, sour cream, raisins, peanuts, Baco-Os, green onion and curry powder. Make sure it’s thoroughly mixed, but be careful to not overmix it.

Shape into a ball and place on a serving platter.

Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until firm.

Just before serving, cover with a light layer of jam.

If garnishing with fresh parsley, wash and dry the parsley. Remove most of the stems and toss. In a food processor, pulse the remaining parsley leaves until they are minced. Lightly sprinkle on the cheese ball. Store any remaining parsley in a covered container in the refrigerator for future use.

Serve with crackers.

This recipe can easily be doubled.
