Comment on this recipe

Ingredients

2 8-ounce packages cream cheese, softened
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup Parmesan cheese, grated
1/4 cup green onions, sliced
10 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled
Parsley sprigs
4-ounce jar diced pimientos
Walnuts or pecans, if desired
Crackers for serving

Instructions

In a small bowl, beat the cream cheese, mayonnaise, Parmesan and onions. Stir in bacon. Cover and refrigerate 1-2 hours. Invert a small bowl in the center of a serving platter and form the cream cheese around the edge of the bowl to form a circular wreath. Remove the bowl, smooth the cheese and garnish with pimientos and parsley. Alternatively, form the cheese into a ball and roll in walnuts or pecans. Yields 3 cups.
