Cook Time

Step 1

Heat oil in large skillet set over medium-high heat; cook mushrooms, garlic, salt and pepper for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden and tender. Let cool completely.

Step 2

Using electric mixer, beat cream cheese until smooth. Beat in mushroom mixture, shredded mozzarella, Gouda, Parmesan, tomatoes and Italian seasoning until well combined.

Step 3

Transfer mixture to sheet of plastic wrap; shape into a ball, then use plastic wrap to press into football shape (if mixture is too soft, refrigerate until firm enough to shape).

Step 4

Transfer to serving platter. Arrange pepperoni over top in overlapping pattern.

Step 5

Cut mozzarella slice into strips and arrange over dip to resemble football laces.

Step 6

Cover and refrigerate for 1 to 2 hours or until firm. Serve with tortilla chips.


Substitute diced roasted red peppers for tomato, if desired.
