Bacon Ranch Cheese Ball

Bacon Ranch Cheese Ball
  • 6 slices bacon
  • 2 (8 ounce) packages cream cheese, softened
  • 1 (1 ounce) package buttermilk Ranch dressing mix
  • 1/2 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 4 green onions, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons chopped black olives
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped pecans (optional)


  1. Place the bacon in a large, deep skillet, and cook over medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until evenly browned, about 10 minutes. Drain the bacon slices on a paper towel-lined plate. Chop the cooled bacon into small pieces.
  2. Stir together the cream cheese and ranch dressing mix in a bowl until smooth. Add the bacon, Cheddar cheese, green onions, and olives; stir until well combined. Shape the mixture into a ball and roll in the chopped pecans. Refrigerate overnight.
