I promise, it was better looking in person!
Jason needed something for a "tailgate" themed food day. I suggested this ideal appetizer: a football shaped cheese ball. He said it was a hit so, here's the recipe:
2 pkgs. (8 oz. each) cream cheese, softened
8 oz. cheddar cheese
1/2 cup parmesan cheese
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 green onions, chopped
3 oz. bacon bits
pimento strips (for laces, but I used sour cream)
Mix cheeses and dressing in mixer until blended. Add onions. Mix well and refrigerate several hours. Shape into football on serving plate; coat with bacon bits. Add lacing. Serve with crackers.
