This recipe for Low-Carb Mini Bacon Chive Cheeseballs makes a delicious appetizer. These cheeseballs are bite-sized, so there is no need for crackers. They can be part of a low-carb, keto, diabetic, gluten-free, grain-free, LC/HF, or Banting diet.
Line a cookie sheet with a piece of parchment. Set aside.
Place pecans in a bowl. Set aside
In a medium bowl, stir together the cream cheese, cheddar cheese, Worcestershire sauce, sea salt and black pepper until well combined.
Stir in the bacon and chives. Spoon out a tablespoon sized chunk and form it into a ball. Roll the ball in the bowl of pecans to cover all sides. Transfer to the lined cookie sheet. Repeat for the remaining cheese mixture to make approximately 12 balls.
Refrigerate uncovered for 2-3 hours or until firm. Transfer to an airtight container. Store in the refrigerator until ready to use.
