Ingredients

  • 12 Slices Bacon divided
  • 3/4 Cup Chives divided
  • 8 Ounces Cream Cheese room temp
  • 1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 Teaspoon Ground Pepper
  • 1 Teaspoon Tabasco add more if you’d like more heat
  • 1 Cup Cheddar

Instructions

  • In a large skillet, cook the bacon in batches until crispy.
  • Set bacon aside on a paper towel lined plate to soak up excess grease.
  • Crumble the bacon with your hands. If some pieces won’t crumble, place them on a cutting board and chop them into small pieces.
  • Chop the chives.
  • In a medium bowl, add softened cream cheese, garlic powder, salt and pepper, tabasco, cheddar, ½ cup of chives and half the bacon to the bowl and stir to combine.
  • Place a long piece of plastic wrap on a clean counter.
  • Place cheese in the center of the plastic wrap and roll/mold the cheese into a log. Then continue to roll it back and forth to smooth out the edges.
  • Add remaining bacon and chives to a large plate and mix them together.
  • Remove plastic from the cheese, and roll the cheese on the bacon and chives plate, pressing these ingredients evenly into the edge of your cheese log.
  • Cheese log can be served with crackers immediately, but is best when it’s able to firm up slightly. To do this place it in the fridge for 1 hour. Enjoy!
