Bacon Cheeseball

My first delivery from my CSA arrives tomorrow and it contains lots of lettuce so I made this cheeseball to go along with my salads this week.




             
                              Bacon Cheeseball

1 8-ounce cream cheese, softened
2 cups marble jack cheese, shredded
1/4 tsp garlic powder
1/8 tsp cayenne
1/2 tsp paprika
4 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
2 dashes hot sauce
1/2 cup peanuts, finely chopped


Mix together softened cream cheese and marble jack cheese.  Add in all of
the spices, bacon and hot sauce.  Shape into a ball shape in bowl and cover
with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours.  Remove and roll in chopped
peanuts or pecans.


Return to refrigerator.  Remove 15 minutes before
serving.
