Pepperoni Football Cheese Ball

• 16 oz cream cheese, softened
• 1 tsp Italian seasoning
• 8 oz finely shredded mozzarella cheese
• ½ cup shredded Parmesan cheese
• 2 – 5 oz bags mini pepperoni slices, divided
• 3 green onions, thinly sliced
• ½ cup chopped, cooked bacon
• 1 4 oz jar diced pimientos, drained and patted dry

Here’s how to make it:

• Beat the cream cheese until light and fluffy. Beat in Italian seasoning, mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses.
• By hand, mix in half (one – 5 oz bag) of the pepperoni slices, green onions, bacon, and pimientos.
• Spoon cheese mixture into a bowl lined with plastic wrap. Wrap the cheese ball firmly in plastic wrap, transfer to cutting board or hard surface and shape into football. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours and up to 2 days.
• Remove the cheese ball from the fridge and cover with remaining pepperoni, pressing gently. Top with cut cheese slices to look like football laces.
• Serve with breadsticks, crackers or veggies.
