Game Day Party Spread

When you serve this, everyone wins! That means no matter which team you and your guests are rooting for,  when you bring out this football-shaped party spread, (which by the way tastes like a cheeseburger) everybody is betting on one thing. That it won’t last long since this touch- down favorite is so good!

What you will need:

2 (7.6-ounce) wedges finely shredded Yancey’s Fancy™ Grilled Bacon Cheeseburger Cheddar Cheese

2 (8-ounce) packages cream cheese, softened

1/3 cup sour cream

4 scallions, divided

1 teaspoon dry mustard

1 (16-ounce) bag whole roasted almonds

If for any reason you can’t find the variety of Yancey’s Fancy’s Cheese you’re looking for, simply ask your Grocer or click here

What to do:

  1. In a large bowl, combine cheddar cheese, cream cheese, sour cream, 3 chopped scallions, and dry mustard; mix until well combined. Spoon onto a serving plate and form into a football shape. (Yes, you will need to do this with your hands…its ok, really).
  2. Lightly press almonds into cheese mound, completely covering its surface (see photo). (This will take a bit of time so pour yourself a beer and have some fun.)
  3. Cut remaining scallion to look like football laces and place between almonds (see photo). Serve, or cover and chill until ready to serve.

Mr. Food Test Kitchen Tip: Serve with your favorite crackers or thin slices of French bread. Sure, you can shape this into a basketball or baseball -- or any ball at all. Ok, we don’t recommend a ping-pong ball, but you get the idea.
