Everything Cheese Ball

I had never made a cheese ball before. I've had them plenty of times, I've had fabulous homemade ones as well as some pretty gross ones from the package. When I saw this recipe I just had to try it out. It was a big hit and had some much flavor! This recipe is adapted from Fake Ginger.

Cheese Ball
5 slices bacon (cooked and finely chopped)
2 2/3 grated sharp cheddar cheese
8 oz cream cheese (softened)
4 tbsp butter (softened)
2 green onions (thinly sliced)
1 tsp ground black pepper
2 tsp worcestershire sauce

Everything Bagel Mix
1 tbsp sesame seeds
1 tbsp poppy seeds
1/2 tbsp dried minced onion
1/2 tbsp dried minced garlic
1/2 tsp sea salt

In a mixer combine the sharp cheddar, cream cheese and butter. Add the green onions, ground black pepper, worcestershire and bacon. Mix for 3 minutes. Line a bowl plastic wrap then scrap all of the cheese mixture into the bowl. Wrap with the plastic wrap, form a ball and refrigerate for a minimum of 3 hours. In a bowl combine all of the spices for the everything bagel mix. Remove the cheese ball from the refrigerator and roll in the everything bagel mix.
