Your apple slices will never taste the same once paired with this delicious mix of crispy bacon, crunchy pecans and cream cheese all rolled (literally) up into one — one cheese ball that is. At your next gathering, or your next afternoon snack, try this easy Apple Cheese Ball recipe. 

Prep: 10 min  Chill: 1 hr Serves: 4 to 6 Apple-Cheese-Ball-Longo's-Recipe


  • 3 slices crisply cooked bacon, chopped
  • 3 tbsp Longo’s Pecan Pieces, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp minced parsley
  • 1 Royal Gala or Red Delicious apple, grated
  • 1 cup grated medium cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup light cream cheese
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce


Mix together bacon, pecans and parsley on a plate; set aside.

Place grated apple in sieve; let stand 2 minutes. Press gently to remove juices; discard juices.

Mix together cheddar and cream cheese, apple, pepper and Worcestershire by hand. Mixture may seem watery, but will bind together. Roll into a ball. Roll cheese ball in bacon mixture, coating the outside. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour or up to 2 days.
