what's cooking wednesdays...a little early

i ended up making these gorgonzola truffles from the 2008 southern living cookbook for our junior league social tonight. i doubled recipe as it doesn't make very many. these are INSANELY delicious. bacon + blue cheese....i mean, how could they not be?!

i'm off to atlanta for work until thursday. have a great week, lovelies!

Makes 6 appetizer servings
4 ounces cream cheese, softened
1 (4-oz.) container crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
2 teaspoons finely chopped onion
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 cup cooked and crumbled bacon
Apple and pear slices
1. Beat first 5 ingredients at medium speed with an electric mixer until well combined. Cover tightly, and chill at least 1 hour or until firm (can chill up to 3 days).
2. Roll cheese mixture into 3/4-inch-round balls. Roll each ball in bacon. Serve immediately, or cover and chill until ready to serve. If chilled, let stand 30 minutes before serving. Serve with apple and pear slices and grapes.

I recently had some feta truffles at a restaurant that I loved (and my friends hated for some reason), and these look even better than that! I'm going to have to make these!
