How to Make this Easy Bacon Ranch Cheese Ball Recipe

To make my recipe, I start by adding my softened cream cheese and shredded cheddar cheese, along with my Ranch Seasoning and Stone House Seasoning to a large bowl. For this, you can use an electric mixer or even just mix together with a spoon until well combined.

Once combined, then stir in the bacon and green onion until well distributed.

Turn the cheese mixture out onto a piece of parchment paper or plastic wrap and form into a ball. Wrap tightly with plastic wrap and chill in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

As the cheese ball is chilling, chop your pecans in preparation for the next step.

Once your cheese ball has chilled, remove from the plastic wrapping and roll in the chopped pecans, making sure to lightly press the pecans into the cheese ball to secure them.
