Nothing kicks off a Chargers gameday party like a cheese ball shaped like a football. Don't forget the laces!
16 oz cream cheese, softened
8 oz sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
1 tbsp Worcestershire Sauce
2 tsp onion, minced
2 tbsp red bell pepper, finely chopped
1 cup pecans, toasted and chopped
1 slice mozzarella cheese (for lacing)
In a medium bowl, thoroughly mix together the cream cheese, cheddar cheese, Worcestershire Sauce, and onion. Add the red bell pepper and mix until evenly distributed. Cover and chill for a minimum of 2 hours.
Form into a football shape and coat with pecans. Cover and chill for 1 hour (or up to 3 days).
Before serving, use strips of mozzarella cheese to form the traditional football lacing.
Enjoy with your favorite crackers!
The next time you prepare for the big game, don't forget your neighborhood Albertsons, Vons or Pavilions for all your tailgating needs.
