Football Bites (with Summer Sausage, Cheddar & Ranch) Recipe

Ingredients:

Food Ingredients:

  • favorite crackers (I used TownHouse because of their size/shape)
  • summer sausage, sliced thin (about 1/8″ thick)
  • block of cheddar cheese, sliced very thin (about 1/8″ thick)
  • ranch dressing

Prep Tools:

  • 1 small, rinsed-out aluminum can (like from green chiles), or a small round cookie cutter
  • 1 ziplock bag, or frosting bag

Method:

On a sturdy cutting board, use the aluminum can (or cookie cutter) to shape the cheddar and summer sausage pieces into individual “football” shapes.  (See photo above.)  Then assemble the football “bites”, by layering cheddar and summer sausage atop the crackers.
