Bacon Ranch cheese ball

I am making this recipe up for part of our Christmas day spread.  We don't make a big meal, we just put out lots of munchies and graze all day.  Not sure if it is less work but everyone enjoys it!  I did not roll mine in nuts, and it was yummy without.  Just do what you like best!

2 (8 oz each) packages cream cheese (light is fine)
1 (1 oz.) packet dry buttermilk ranch dressing mix
1/2 cup cheddar cheese, grated
4 green onions, thinly sliced
pecans or almonds, finely chopped for coating

1.  Mix together cream cheese and dry ranch seasoning packet.  Stir until smooth.  Add cheese, onions, olives (if using) and bacon.  Stir until well combined.

2.  Shape into a ball.  Roll in nuts to coat outside.  Fix shape if needed.  (You can make one big or more smaller) Store in refrigerator.

Serve with crackers or chips.
