  • ⅓ cup bacon, cooked and crumbled into very small pieces
  • Sea salt and black pepper, to taste
  • Almond slivers, for wings
  • 5-6 olives, cut into small pieces, for the eyes
  • Shredded carrot or flat carrot pieces, for the feet and nose
  • Your favorite crackers
  1. In a mixing bowl, beat cream cheese, cheese, and bacon together with a mixer (can just use a spoon).
  2. Scoop and roll mixture into small round balls. Roll around until coated in finely shredded cheese.
  3. Cut small triangles of carrot for the nose and small pieces of carrot shreds for the feet.
  4. Put one sliver on each side of the cheese balls, pressing it in, for the wings.
  5. Place the very small pieces of olives on for the eyes.
