1/8 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 tsp. Worcestershire Sauce
1/4 cup chopped pecans or walnuts

**Another Idea:This recipe will also work well by replacing the nuts with 1/4 cup almond flour and 1 slice of bacon processed to bits and blend bacon bits and almond flour. It gives an entirely different taste.
**Cooking Tip: This recipe yields 10-12 servings; entire cheese ball has 12 grams carbohydrates. This is less than 1 gram carbs per servings.
