Dress up your cheese ball for Thanksgiving by turning it into an adorably cute turkey complete with cheese and cracker feathers, cheese eyes, a beak, wattle, and feet.
Cut 4 leaves out of each slice of cheese and set one slice on each cracker.
Arrange in four rows in a half-moon shape on a large serving platter, overlapping the crackers as you go, leaving an opening on the interior of the half-moon for the cheese ball.
Stir together the softened cream cheese, shredded cheese (or scraps from above), the ranch dressing, and Worcestershire sauce until well combined.
Scoop about 1/3rd of the cheese spread into a shallow bowl filled with the bacon.
Coat the cheese spread in the bacon and roll it into a ball.
Reserve 1 tablespoon of the cheese spread for later.
Roll the rest in bacon shaping it into an oval-shaped turkey body.
Set the turkey body in the opening in the crackers.
Attach the cheese ball head using some of the reserved cheese spread.
Cut two circle-shaped eyes out of the white cheese and draw on pupils using a black food coloring marker.
Cut out a triangle-shaped beak and a teardrop-shaped wattle from the orange cheese.
Brush red food coloring over the teardrop-shaped wattle.
Cut two triangle-shaped feet each with 3 toes.
Attach the Turkey Eyes, Wattle, Beak, and Feet to the cheese ball using the remaining cheese spread.
Serve and enjoy!
