Mini Bacon Cheese Balls
8 strips bacon, cooked and crumbled (reserving 1/4 cup)
1-8 oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
1 T. Dijon mustard
2 T. lemon juice
1 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
1/8 cup chives or parsley
Mix cream cheese, cheddar cheese, bacon, mustard and lemon juice until well blended.
Form into small balls about the size of a quarter. Chill at least 15 minutes.
Roll in reserved bacon and sprinkle with chives or parsley. Refrigerate until needed. Makes about 18. (If rolled in 1-inch balls, will make 12 cheese balls.)
