I didn't use miracle whip since I know many people don't like it and I know it would taste too sweet. For the laces I used ranch dressing since football laces are white...it made it look more like a football. This is certainly a hit at a party!

I've had this recipe with Pecans, but saw it with Bacon on the back of a cracker box and decided to try it. It was a big hit, my son and his friends devoured it. Great recipe, super for Sunday football, and the bacon complimented the cheese better than the nuts.

It was very easy and quick to make, I did use onion powder instead of the green onions due to some of my guests don't eat onions and it turned out very good. ***GO COWBOYS****
