Cheeseballs are a classic for a reason (several reasons, actually): They are a breeze to pull together, they call for easy-to-find ingredients that come together to deliver big flavor, and they are easily customizable. Plus, they’re just fun to serve and eat.
- Cook the bacon according to package instructions until crisp. Drain on paper towels then chop finely. Set aside.
- Combine the cream cheese, Cheddar, scallions and mustard in a bowl and stir until well combined. Shape into a ball. (Cheeseball can be made up until this point, wrapped tightly in plastic wrap, and refrigerated for up to 24 hours.)
- Stir together the chopped bacon and parsley in a shallow dish. Roll the cheeseball in the bacon mixture until evenly coated. To serve, arrange on a tray with the vegetables.
