Bacon Cheddar cheeseball

For anyone who has been reading the blog for a while knows that I love food in particular appetizers. One day when I was on Facebook (which I get on every blue moon) 
I saw a video of someone making one of these cheeseball. In all honesty, I have never eaten a cheeseball before due to the fact that most are covered in pecan or walnut. I did add my own twist onto this recipe to make it my own.

1-8oz container whipped onion and chive cream cheese
1-8oz container whipped plain cream cheese
1-8oz extra sharp cheddar
1-8 oz bag Italian five cheese blend
1 1/2 boxes of microwave bacon
8oz green onions
1tsp pepper
1tsp garlic powder

1: Shredded the block of extra sharp cheddar cheese.

2: Take bacon out of bag and place on plate. microwave for 1:30 or until crispy. Cool.

3: Empty both container of cream cheese into a large bowl. Let sit for 5 minutes or until softened.

4: Add half of the Italian and extra sharp cheddar cheese to the bowl. Place the rest of the cheese on a plate.

5: Clean and chop green onions. Put in bowl with cream cheese.

6: Chop the bacon adding half to the bowl along with the pepper and garlic powder. Add the rest to the bacon pieces to the plate with the cheeses.

7: Stir the ingredients together. Then start to form the cheese into a ball.

8: Once the in ball form, roll the ball in the bacon and cheese mixture, covering the whole ball.

9: Refrigerate for 2 hours until ready to serve.

Sidenote: I ended up cutting the ball in half due to it being the size of a 2 lbs medicine ball.
I made this for the SEC championship party I went too. I took this and my Citrus Salad drink (I made it with champagne this time) and both were a big hit. I am making both for other parties that I plan on attending.
