Bacon and Dill Pickle Cheese Ball

Bacon and Dill Pickle Cheese Ball Set this cheese ball out at a party and it will disappear like magic before your eyes. I like to serve it with plain potato chips or real dill pickle-flavored potato chips instead of the artificially flavored ones. Crackers and raw veggies work too.
