I love sharing pictures of my Colorado adventures but this weekend’s adventures weren’t too picture worthy. I ran a St. Patrick’s Day 5k, the last race in the City Park Winter Running Series… meaning my next race is the Horsetooth Half Marathon next month! After the race, I went to a local park and enjoyed some sunshine. The rest of the weekend was spent at home, relaxing… aka I read an entire book (The Neon Lawyer – my monthly free Amazon Prime read) and am itching to start another one.
On to the real purpose of this post – I hate going to potluck-type parties and taking a majority of my dish home because no one ate it. I recently discovered this “Epic Sriracha and Bacon-Coated Cheese Ball” and it is the dish that has no leftovers! Who doesn’t love sriracha and bacon?!? The cheeseball is super easy to make but a little time consuming as the sriracha chips take about an hour and a half to get all dry and crunchy in the oven. So don’t try to throw this thing together before running out the door!
I recently made this for a weeknight get together. I put the cheeseball together the night before, made the sriracha chips, and then put the sriracha chips and bacon in a baggie in the fridge. Before I went to the party, I rolled the cheeseball in the sriracha and bacon then ran out the door. I think the sriracha chips would get gooey if they were on the cheeseball in the fridge.
Mmmmm SO GOOD! You will not be able to stop eating it!
