Really, what’s to say after starting with those three words; football, cheese & bacon? If you are tailgating this weekend, going to a friends or just staying home to watch your fave games, this is a must. Creamy, cool, crunchy and yummy.. and it’s shaped like a football!!  

  • 16 oz neufchatel cheese, softened
  • 2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp Worcester 
  • 8 slices cooked bacon, crumbled
  • Assorted crackers 
  • Cheese slices for laces 

In a large mixing bowl, beat together the cream cheese, cheddar cheese, onion powder, garlic powder, Worcester and salt. Form the mixture into ball, place on plastic wrap then form a football. Refrigerate for at least 2 hrs or overnight if you have time. Unwrap the cheese ball and roll into the crumbled bacon until top & sides are completely covered. Places laces on top. Refrigerate until ready to serve.
