  • ISO: Football shaped appetizers or desserts
    I would like to know how to search for football shaped appetizers or desserts. I typed in football but I only found sugar cookies in the shapes of footballs. We are going to a SuperBowl party and I would like to make a dessert or appetizer in a football shape. Any ideas??

    It is a FOOTBALL-SHAPED Spread

    Blend 4 packages of cream cheese (8ozs. each) and 2 packages HV original ranch party dip.

    Stir in 1 3/4 cups diced red bell peppers.

    Drain and dry 2 cans (2 1/4 ozs.dry wt. each) diced black olives and 1 can (4ozs.) diced green chilies. Add to mixture. Chill one
    hour.

    Using a spatula, form a football shape on a platter. Chill 4 hours or overnight.

    Decorate football using vegetable slices and cheese strips. Serve with assorted breads, crackers and vegetables.


    BOLOGNA FOOTBALL

    Don't dismiss this recipe. It sounds wild, but it's great, especially for a SUPER BOWL party, as it ends up looking like a big football & tastes good.

    Buy a 5 to 6 pound bologna (don't
    wince...bologna? Just trust me!), uncut.
    Remove the casing & score the bologna
    lengthwise about four times, lightly.

    Place in a roasting pan and bake 4 hours at
    250 degrees.

    In the meantime make a sauce;
    combine
    1 small jar of currant jelly
    1 cup of chili sauce
    heavy dash Tabasco
    about 4 tablespoons prepared mustard

    Heat over low heat, whisking until the jelly dissolves. To serve, place bologna on a large platter, surround with parsley, and cocktail bread. Serve sauce on the side.

    One thing I've learned when serving this, it looks so different that the guests might not cut into it & make their own mini-sandwiches, so someone may have to guide them.

    This comes from a non-lovin' bologna family, but it's great, easy, & serves a lot of people!

    If any is left over, this makes make great sandwiches: either slice & fry & place on bread with your favorite dressing, or chop with pickles and mix with mayo!

    If you would like to make a football shaped cake bake a square pan and a round pan. Cut the square cake from corner across to other corner. Put on each side of the round cake to make a football shape. Frost with chocolate frosting and pipe with white in the middle for the stitching.

    You could cut meat and cheese slices in the shape of a football... Also, your bread slices. Of course, it would be easier if you have a football shaped cutter! Just a thought!
