  • 4 pkgs containers of Onion & Chive Cream Cheese 8oz each
  • 2 C Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • 2 C Cooked Crumbled Bacon
  • 1 Slice Provolone Cheese
  • 4 tbsp Green Onions
  • 1 tsp Garlic Powder
  • 1 pkg pretzels or crackers


  • In a medium size bowl, mix all 4 containers of cream cheese, shredded cheese, and garlic powder. 
  • Using your hands, shape mixture into a football. Coat the entire football with the crumbled bacon. If it is too wet, wrap it in plastic wrap and put it into the fridge to harden more. Then shape and unwrap before serving.
  • Cut provolone cheese into slices and place on top as the “stitching”.Chop green onions and place around the football. (This represents the grass)! 
  • Serve with crackers or pretzels. Can be made up the night before and stored in an airtight container.
