We love this recipe because it is so simple, yet it will fancy up any gathering you’re catering for and make it look like you’ve gone to way more effort than you actually have! lol. It is also easy to switch out some ingredients and put your own spin on it – for example: leave out the bacon for a vegetarian option or add in some chives instead of spring onions. Sundried tomatoes would be pretty awesome as well (just saying, drooling)
While we have you, please think about switching up the use of plastic wrap for an eco-friendly option. To wrap this up I used the 4My Earth sandwich wrap instead, and it worked a treat.
We would absolutely love you to leave us a comment below and let everyone know what you think. It’s comments like this that make our day and help us improve a recipe if we need to. We look forward to reading what you think!

- 45 g block parmesan cheese
- 90 g block tasty cheese

- Heat frying pan on medium heat and fry bacon until crispy. Drain on paper towel until cool. Blitz in thermie for 5 secs/speed 6 or a high-speed blender for 5-10 secs/medium speed. It should be nice and fine, so blitz longer if needed. Then set aside.

- Add half the block cheese and bacon mix, along with the spring onions to thermie and mix till well combined. If using a thermie then mix for 3 secs/speed 4. If using a blender mix on a medium speed till combined.
- Tip out onto clean bench and shape mixture into a ball. Wrap in a 4MyEarth Large Sandwich Wrap (link above) and refrigerate until set (approx. 1 hour).
