While you are watching Mad Men, way not have a retro appetizer? Serve a cheese ball! Maybe not bring back the secretary chasing and the smoking, but the cheese ball and the Old-Fashioned could use a re-intro.
2 (8 oz) packages cream cheese, softened
10 strips bacon, fried crisp, then chopped
5 green onions, chopped fine
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1/3 cup grated Parmesan cheese
3/4 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
Combine thoroughly in a large bowl the cream cheese, bacon, onions, mayonnaise and Parmesan. Form into a ball. If desired, chill mixture in the bowl before forming into a ball.
Place the nuts in a pie plate, then roll the ball in the nuts to coat.
