A Football-Shaped Meat and Cheese Plate might be the perfect game-day appetizer. Create it out of your favorite meats, cheeses and crackers. Touchdown!
There’s a BIG game coming up, right? I overheard it at the grocery store. I dunno…some guys in helmets running hither and yon on a gridiron.
Something about a national title. Sounds *super* to me!
Our job is to fuel up for the arduous task of watching the Super Bowl. And I can’t think of anything more fun than serving my dish in the shape of a football.
Literally, football food. Get it? Of course you do!
How to make a Football-Shaped Meat and Cheese Plate
It’s ridiculously easy to make. Simply get your meats, cheese and crackers, or whatever you want to put on your appetizer plate, and arrange them in the shape of a football.
You can use whatever you like. Here’s what I used — a mix of common elements and a few slightly more challenging items.
- Roast beef
- Fennel salami
- Summer sausage
- Smoked almonds
- Fresh mozzarella pearls for the laces, or mozzarella sticks torn into laces-sized strips
- Butter crackers (like Ritz)
- Seeded crackers
I seem to have used ALL THE MEAT!
That’s it! You can sub out anything you don’t like, and sub in anything you prefer.
Here’s a photo with the various elements labeled.
