Low carb snacks are something that I need to have on hand to keep myself on track. I find having a list of them written down (because I am quite forgetful) so I can either buy snacks or to make the snacks for the upcoming week.

Cheese ball bitesHow long does a cheese ball keep in the fridge?

A cheese ball will keep in the fridge for about 4 days. Cheese balls freeze perfectly when wrapped in plastic wrap then wrapped in tin foil.

What to serve with a cheese ball?

A light buttery cracker is classic to highlight the strong cheese flavour of the cheese ball, though you can also serve it with mini bagels or mini Melba toast type crackers. A side of meat slices and crackers also go well with a cheese ball.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 lb Grated Old Cheddar Cheese About 220 grams cheese
  • 4 oz Cream Cheese
  • 1/2 can 1/2 of a 240 oz can of ham flakes (All moisture well squeezed out)
  • 1/8 cup finely chopped green onion
  • 1 tsp mustard
  • 1/4 tsp celery seed
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup crushed pecans (optional)
  • 6-7 pcs cooked crispy bacon (optional)

Instructions

  1. Add all ingredients except the bacon or pecans in a mixing bowl.

  2. Mix the ingredients together until well combined.

  3. Use a tablespoon size scoop and roll into balls. Set aside.

  4. When all are rolled into balls, roll them in the bacon or nuts and press into the cheese to get it to stick easier.

  5. This cheese ball recipe is the most flavorful if prepared and left overnight in the fridge and eaten the next day.

  6. Tip: If rolling in any type of nut - Roll the Cheese Ball Bites in the nuts 1 hour before serving. If you roll them and let them sit too long, the nuts go soft.
