RITZ Hoagie Football Toppers Recipe

Ingredients

  • 8 slices deli-style ham (1/2 oz. each)
  • 8 slices Genoa salami (1/3 oz. each)
  • 8 sharp cheddar cheese slices (3/4 oz. each)
  • 4 lettuce leaves, each torn into 12 small pieces
  • 6 small plum tomatoes, each cut into 8 slices
  • 48 RITZ Crackers
  • 1/4 cup creamy Italian dressing

Instructions

  • Stack  1 slice EACH ham, salami and cheese. Repeat with remaining meat and cheese slices to make 7 additional stacks, varying the order of the 3 slices. Use 1-1/2x1-inch football or oval-shaped cookie or canapé cutter to cut 6 shapes out of each stack for the footballs. Reserve meat and cheese trimmings for another use. (See tip.)
  • Cover  crackers with lettuce, tomatoes and football-shaped cutouts.
  • Pour  dressing into resealable plastic bag. Cut small piece off one bottom corner of bag; use to drizzle dressing over cutouts to resemble the football laces.

Recipe Tips

NoteLook for prepackaged square ham and cheese slices (about 3-1/2 inch) to use to make the meat and cheese cutouts. Also, look for packaged similarly-sized round salami slices.

How to Use the Meat and Cheese TrimmingsStore the meat and cheese trimmings in airtight container in refrigerator until ready to use as desired, such as to prepare your favorite mixed green or pasta salad.
