Wisconsin Supper Club Cheeseball

A Wisconsin supper club inspired cheeseball made with all the supper club salad bar classics. Whipped cream cheese, Wisconsin made sharp cheddar, bacon, horseradish and banana pepper slices. You whip all the ingredients together, form into a ball, coat in more shredded cheese and some bacon. To make things easier you can also serve it as a spread. Either way, it is delicious.

I add all my recipes to Pinterest, so if you would like to give me a follow, you can find my profile HERE.

All The Flavors That Remind Me Of Wisconsin

If you don’t know what a Wisconsin Supper Club is, in short, it is a meat and potato heavy restaurant that is very lodge/log cabin like. They often have specialties like Broasted Chicken, Prime Rib and most importantly a Salad Bar. Many supper clubs will also give you a cheese spread and crackers when you arrive. This cheeseball is inspired after all the flavors of the amazing salad bars supper clubs have. As well as the cheese spreads they give out. If you are more interested in Supper Club culture, you can read my post called “A Waitress Named Diane” that is all about the brandy Old Fashioned which is another Wisconsin Supper Club Staple.

All of the ingredients pictured above, are what go into this delicious tangy and creamy cheese spread. The better news is, I found all of these ingredients at ,my local Family Dollar in rural Michigan.

You can easily shape this spread into a cheeseball or just add it to a bowl to make life easier. I just think a fancy cheeseball always delights people.
Yield: Serves 12 to 15

Wisconsin Supper Club Cheeseball

A Wisconsin supper club inspired cheeseball made with all the supper club salad bar classics. Whipped cream cheese, Wisconsin made sharp cheddar, bacon, horseradish and banana pepper slices. You whip all the ingredients together, form into a ball, coat in more shredded cheese and some bacon. To make things easier you can also serve it as a spread. Either way, it is delicious.

Ingredients

  • 1 8 ounce package of cream cheese
  • 1 8 ounce brick of sharp cheddar cheese or extra sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce
  • 1/2 tablespoon of prepared horseradish (or to taste)
  • 1 1 ounce packet of Ranch Dressing mix
  • 3 tablespoons of banana pepper rings, finely minced
  • 3 ounce package of real bacon bits
  • 1 box of Chicken Flavored Crackers or Chicken In a Biscuit Crackers

Instructions

  1. Finely mince the bacon bits and the banana pepper rings, use a paper toel to dab off any extra liquid on the banana peppers, set aside.
  2. Shred the block of cheddar cheese with the finest cheese grater. You want the curls not the large shreds.
  3. Let the cream cheese soften and add it to a bowl or a stand mixer. Whip the cream cheese until it is smooth and fluffy.
  4. Add the Worcestershire sauce, ranch packets, and horseradish if using. Whip or stir again until well combined.
  5. Add your cheese and bacon reserving about 1/2 cup of of the cheese and a few tablespoons of the bacon for the outside of the cheeseball or the top of the dip if you are serving in a bowl.
  6. Stir until the cheese and bacon are well combined.
  7. Lay a piece of plastic wrap out and using a rubber spatula, scrape the sides of the bowl and form a loose ball shape and place in the middle of the plastic wrap. I then use the platic wrap to form a ball shape and place this ball on a plate. I then coat the top and sides with the extra bacon and cheese. Press this into the sides and top so it stays. Cover loosely with plastic wrap and refrigerate 4 hours or up to overnight.
  8. Use a damp paper towel to clean up any excess cheese or droppings on the plate. Add the crackers and serve.
  9. You can also serve this cheese as a spread in a bowl, and top with the extra bacon and extra cheese.
