The best gifts are smoked. A home-smoked cheese log is special, incredibly delicious and inexpensive to make. Plus we threw in some bacon! So gift it or just serve it at your holiday gathering. Everybody wins.

Ingredients

  • 2 (8 oz.) packages Cream Cheese, Room Temperature
  • 1 Tbsp. Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 tsp. Hot Sauce
  • 3 cups Cheddar Cheese, Finely Shredded
  • 8 slices Bacon, Cooked and Crumbled
  • 2 Green Onions, Finely Diced
  • 1 cup Pecans, Toasted and Finely Chopped
  • 2 (8 oz.) packages Cream Cheese, Room Temperature
  • 1 Tbsp. Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1 tsp. Hot Sauce
  • 3 cups Cheddar Cheese, Finely Shredded
  • 8 slices Bacon, Cooked and Crumbled
  • 2 Green Onions, Finely Diced
  • 1 cup Pecans, Toasted and Finely Chopped

Preparation

In a mixing bowl, using an electric mixer or large spoon combine the cream cheese and the cheddar cheese.

Add in the Worchestershire sauce and hot sauce and mix again.

Lastly, add in the crumbled bacon and green onions and mix until combined.

Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 4 hours or until the cheese mixture is firm enough to mold. Shape it into a log and layer the outside with the toasted pecans.

Cover with plastic wrap.

Freeze the cheese log overnight to make sure it doesn't get too soft while it's smoking.

The next day start the Traeger on Smoke with the lid open until fire is established, 4 to 5 minutes.

Take the cheese log out of the freezer and unwrap. Place on a cooking sheet and smoke on the Smoke setting for 1 hour. (Keep an eye on it to make sure it doesn't get too soft.

If you aren't using a cold smoker, you need to do this during the winter or late fall to prevent the cheese from melting apart.)

Move the cheese log to a serving tray and serve with your favorite crackers. (If the cheese is too soft, throw it in the fridge for an hour or two.)
