Garlic Bacon Cheese Log Recipe @pinch

What a flavorful cheese log. It's a tasty appetizer you can enjoy any time of the year. Fancy enough to serve at a holiday meal but easy enough to make when unexpected company drops by. We loved the crunch of the crushed pecans. The cheese ball itself has a sharp, savory, and smoky flavor with a touch of freshness from the parsley. I just kinda made this one up, but it sure is tasty and goes over well at parties and holiday gatherings. I use something I find at Krogers called Pub Cheese (sharp cheddar variety) but any cheddar cheese spread would work. You can make this into any shape you like such as a cheese ball instead of a log. At Halloween time I make it into a spider using pretzels for legs and pickled onion and black olives for eyes. Serve with whatever crackers you prefer and enjoy this pretty appetizer!
