Gorgonzola Truffles

From Southern Living April 2008

4 oz cream cheese, softened
1 4 oz container Gorgonzola cheese, crumbled
2 tsp minced onion
1/2 tsp Worcestershire sauce
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 cup bacon, cooked & crumbled

Beat cream cheese, Gorgonzola, onion, Worcestershire sauce, and pepper at medium speed 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 chill. If chilled, let stand 30 minutes before serving.

-Use feta in place of Gorgonzola
-Use goat cheese in place of Gorgonzola
-Use chopped nuts in place of bacon
