Football Cheeseball

Football Cheeseball

2  pkgs (8 ounces) cream cheese, softened
1 cup shredded Wisconsin sharp cheddar cheese
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 cup mayonnaise
2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 scallions, chopped
1/4 cup real bacon bits or pieces
1 1/2 to 2 cups chopped pecans
Pimento or roasted red pepper strips

In a big bowl use a mixer to mix together first 7 ingredients until smooth.  You can also place the ingredients in a food processor and pulse a few times until well  mixed. Stir in scallions and bacon. Cover and refrigerate several hours or overnight. Remove cheese mixture from the fridge and place on a large platter. Shape the mixture into a football.  Cover the football with nuts to get the brown color of the football. If you don’t like nuts you can use bacon bits instead. Cut pimentos or roasted red pepper into thin strips and use to form laces of football on top.  Serve surrounded by crackers. Makes a great centerpiece for your  Super Bowl party but take a picture because it will disappear before you know it! GO TEAM!
