Yummy Cheese Ball

1/2 tsp Worchestershire sauce
Jar old English Cheese
8 oz Cream cheese
1/2 tsp garlic, best if fresh
1 tsp parsley
1 jar of **Roka Cheese**
Mix together and cover with Bacon bits

**Roka Cheese is only a seasonal item made by Kraft. I found a good substitute online for the Roka blue if it is out of season. However this recipe makes enough for two cheeseball recipes so I just refrigerate half.**

Roka Blue Substitute

1 block Cream Cheese
1/4 Blue Cheese crumbles

Mix with hand mixer and add water 1 tsp at a time to bring to consistency of the Old Englis Cheese. If you want it a bit tangier you can add a bit of white vinegar.
