Here’s what you will need:
1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup sour cream
2 tablespoons prepared horseradish
1 cup finely shredded sharp cheddar cheese
2 scallions, chopped
6 slices bacon, cooked and chopped
About 1/2 cup Everything But the Bagel seasoning blend*
Bagel chips and/or crackers for serving
In a bowl, mix together the cream cheese, sour cream, horseradish, cheddar cheese, scallions, and bacon. Form the mixture into a ball, wrap with plastic wrap, and chill for an hour.
Once the cheeseball has set, roll it into the Everything But the Bagel seasoning blend to evenly coat.
(To make your cheeseball resemble a pumpkin, add a real or faux pumpkin stem to the top. Then use the tip of a chopstick or the back of a butter knife to create grooves.)
Serve with bagel chips and crackers.
*You can make your own seasoning blend by combining equal parts dehydrated onion, poppy seeds, sesame seeds, and garlic flakes. Add kosher salt and black pepper to taste.
