Bacon Wrapped Palmetto Cheese Balls

Bacon Wrapped Palmetto Cheese Balls
These luscious balls of bacony joy have a new taste twist thanks to the addition of a special type of cheese.  Bacon Palmetto Cheese which hails itself as “Real Cheese, Real Southern, and Really Good”. I suppose if you can’t find this brand name even though they sell it at Kroger here in the states, you can make do with some other type of pimento cheese, OR you could contact the company that makes it and find out where to buy this in your part of the country-

These are similar to Jo’s Cheesy Bacon Bombs but this special cheese makes all the difference.

Pimento Cheese Balls

12 oz. Bacon Palmetto Cheese
1 pkg. Pillsbury Grands! (16.3oz)
1 package thinly-sliced bacon
3 cups Canola Oil for frying

1. Cut each Pillsbury Grands! dough round into 4 pieces. You can spray your work surface with a little non-stick cooking spray to keep the dough from sticking. Flatten each piece out with your hand.


2. In the middle of each round, place 1 tsp. of Palmetto Cheese. Don’t go crazy on the cheese or you won’t be able to fold the dough together. To make the pouch, fold the dough in half and seal the edges. Press the seams all together to keep the cheese from escaping.


3. Now wrap ‘em all up in bacon!! Instead of cutting all of the bacon, we just laid out a slice, rolled up the ball until it made one rotation and then sliced the bacon. You should be able to get 3 cheese balls wrapped per slice of bacon. Secure the bacon by pushing a toothpick through the cheese ball.


4. Heat a saucepan of canola oil up to 350° F. Fry the dough until golden brown. This should take 2-3 minutes. Do a test one first to make sure your oil isn’t too hot. Once it looks like it’s done, take it out of the oil, let it drain and cut it in half. If your dough is still raw, make sure to cook them a little longer. These can be made up ahead of time and fried when needed. Or fry them all up and reheat in the oven.

5 Paranormal Experiences That Will Make Your Skin Crawl


So the other night I was lying in bed, something woke me up, I looked up and could have sworn I saw something standing in my hallway. I woke my husband who said, nothing there hun, and continued to snore for the next 5 hours … anyhoo! What does one do when they think they see something creeping in their hallway? go on google and look up paranormal experiences .. like any other normal crazy person out there.

Why do I do this to myself!

Here are five of the creepiest stories I have read that a snoring husband can’t explain away.

Clarissa Glenn

(tish) Carissa Glenn from obit on net  .suicide inquest  story cornwall news service.

18-year-old Clarissa Glenn claimed to experience odd, ghostly presences in her apartment in Cornwall, England. She had been told that the person who lived in her room before her had hanged himself. Glenn had a history of sleepwalking, and ever since moving into this flat, had dreamt of hanging herself. One night, presumably in her sleep, she hanged herself from the rafters by her scarf.

Brian Bethel


Brian Bethel was parked outside a movie theatre when two young kids approached him. Bethel says he had never been so afraid in his life as he was at this time. The kids asked him for a ride home, and when Bethel started the car before giving them an answer, he claims their eyes turned black and they said they couldn’t get into the car unless they were invited. He drove away and later wrote about his experience on his blog, leading to people from all over the world to shave similar encounters.

Greg Garrett


Greg Garrett was playing in his backyard in Enfield, Illinois in 1973 when he claims to have been attacked. His attacker was not a person, and the description matched no animal anyone had ever heard of. Anyone who has described the creature, which came to be known as the “Enfield Horror” gave the same description; three legs, five feet tall, gleaming red eyes and taloned arms that seem curl in the front of a torso similar to that of a t-rex.

Teresita Basa


Teresita Basa was stabbed to death and had her body set on fire in 1976. There was very little that linked the murder to any person, and police were left wondering. About a year later another woman who worked with Basa, Remy Chua, claimed to have seen Basa’s spirit appear in a lounge at the hospital where they worked. One night, Chua spoke to her family in Basa’s voice naming Allen Showery as the murderer. Police found Basa’s belongings in Showery’s home, and he confessed to the crime.

Doris Bither


Doris Bither was a drunk who was known for abusing her children, having come from an abusive home herself. She claimed much of this happened because of the “entities” that haunted her. She eventually got a few paranormal investigators to observe her, and after some time, she began to curse at people no one else saw. Allegedly, auras began forming near her and a green mist started to form around her. One of the investigators fainted on the scene.

So, got the heebie jeebies? good, join the club.
