Bakin’ With Bacon, Ted and a Guest!


Welcome To The Kitchen!

We have our friend Sammy Pilch (known as SammyP from….!) with us in the Castle Kitchen today BECAUSE he brought us a fab recipe and we wanted him to help us make it and share it with YOU!

You may remember a few weeks ago we had my good friend Raz from FriendsFurever Cat Blog here with a cheeseball recipe – cheeseballs rolled in bacon.   YUMMY.   Now this is similar but look how CUTE it is – it’s a TURKEY!     We sure did have a lot of comments from you all about cheeseballs……that they were a FAVORITE snack.

This recipe makes a HUGE cheese ball so you can easily cut it in half if you aren’t having it as a party appetizer for lots of peeps.    Cheese balls are popular with just about everybody………….this time of the year when many of us (you) entertain, it’s nice to have something like this to put on a table and let everyone enjoy chowing down.



  • 16 oz Natural Sharp Cheddar Cheese
  • 16 ounces cream cheese softened
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1-2 tablespoons hot pepper sauce depending how spicy you like it
  • 4 ounces chopped pimentos
  • 12-14 strips cooked bacon
  • 20 pecan halves
  • 1 large piece of red pepper
  • Craft eyeballs not edible   (you can use anything for an eye!)
  • Crackers


  • In a large bowl, add first six ingredients. Stir until completely combined. Shape into a ball and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for 2-3 hours. Remove from the refrigerator and let it rest for about 10 minutes. Place bacon in cheese ball, then pecans, to look like turkey feathers. Place red pepper in front to look like head. Attach eyeballs.
  • Serve with crackers.


Yes Angel Sammy – do you all have turkey on Thanksgiving at the Rainbow Bridge??


“Did someone say TURKEY???????”

  1. Well, that is one turkey that all will GOBBLE up! haha. Mama’s stuffing is pretty good. Maybe we’ll put the recipe in my blog soon because one has to start a day early to make cornbread and let it sit out all night to get a bit dried out. Love that turkey!


  2. This sounds delicious and is so cute. Thanks SammyP and Teddy for a great holiday entertaining recipe. XOCK, angel Lily Olivia, angel Mauricio, Misty May, angel Giulietta, angel Fiona, Astrid, Lisbeth, Calista Jo, Cooper Murphy, Sawyer & Kizmet
