- Servings: 8
4 slices bacon
½ cup panko crumbs
2 packages (8 oz.) cream cheese, softened
1¼ cups grated sharp cheddar cheese
¼ cup drained jarred pimientos
Step 1Place bacon in a large skillet over medium high heat. Cook until crisp, and transfer to a paper towel-lined plate to drain. Crumble or chop into small pieces. Take half and, once cool, mix with panko crumbs. Set aside.
Step 2In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat cream cheese, cheddar cheese, pimientos and Ranch seasoning mix until smooth. Add remaining bacon and mix again to distribute.
Step 3Cover and place in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours, up to overnight. Using plastic wrap to prevent sticking, shape the cream cheese mixture into a ball. Roll in the bacon and bread crumb mixture. Serve with crackers or bread.
