Bits of Bacon Tuesday – Smokey Bacon Cheese Ball Pumpkin
3 8 oz. packages cream cheese, softened
1 cup grated cheddar jack cheese
1/4 cup dehydrated onion flakes
2 tablespoons granular beef bouillon
1/4 cup bacon, crumbled
orange paste food coloring
green bell pepper
yellow bell pepper
1 box crackers of your choice
Whip the cream cheese and cheddar jack cheese until fluffy; add the onion flakes, beef bouillon, and bacon. Whip until the bouillon is dissolved and the ingredients are well-mixed. Add enough orange food coloring to make the mixture pumpkin colored.
Line a 1-quart bowl with plastic wrap. Scoop the cheese mixture into the bowl and fold the plastic wrap over. Refrigerate until firm. Remove the cheese ball from the plastic wrap and transfer it to a serving tray. Using the plastic wrap, reshape the ball, then using a skewer, make small indentations starting at the tip to the bottom to resemble a pumpkin. Cut the green bell pepper into a stem and leaves for the top of the pumpkin; cut three triangles from the yellow pepper and a jack-o-lantern mouth. Push the pepper pieces onto the pumpkin. Cover and refrigerate until serving time.
Serve with crackers.
