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)

Nutritional information


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.
