This pistachio, cheese and bacon cheese ball recipe is one of my favorite new keto appetizers. It is a low carb appetizer that is savory and perfect to take to a holiday party.
Cook bacon according to package instructions. Set aside to cool.
While bacon is cooling combine Neufchatel cheese, nonfat Greek yogurt and spices with a hand mixer until well blended. Stir in Manchego cheese.
Chop bacon with a food processor. Stir into cheese mixture.
Allow cheese mixture to harden in fridge for 30 minutes.
While cheese is in the fridge, chop pistachios in food processor until finely chopped.
Using a small cookie scoop, scoop 18-22 cheese balls and roll in pistachios. Serve atop cucumbers for a low carb appetizer. Also can be served with bagel chips or crackers. Store in fridge for up to 4 days.
