Gorganzola Truffles

Nancy Macrae told me about this appetizer.  Someone brought it to a teacher appreciation lunch, and she thought it was delicious.  It certainly sounds fantastic and easy. If you wanted to make this a little lighter, you could roll the balls in chopped pecans or walnuts. You could also try the Hormel bacon bits.  I've never used them, so I'm not vouching for the taste.  I'd try it on one and see how it tasted. 

1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 cup cooked and crumbled bacon  (or substitute chopped pecans or walnuts)
4 ounces cream cheese, softened 
1 (4-oz.) container crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
2 teaspoons finely chopped onion1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
Apple and pear slices and grapes


Beat first 5 ingredients at medium speed with an electric mixer until well combined. Cover tightly, and chill at least 1 hour or until firm (can chill up to 3 days)
 Roll cheese mixture into 3/4-inch-round balls. Roll each ball in bacon. Serve immediately, or cover and chill until ready to serve. If chilled, let stand 30 minutes before serving. Serve with apple and pear slices and grapes.
