EASY and DANG GOOD Salami Cream Cheese Ball... shaped like a football! PERFECT for the Big GAME DAY Party!

There are 2 types of Game Day fans: the one who watches each play and cheers or boos for their team and the one who watches the commercials/half time show while perusing the appetizer table. We, friends, are most definitely the latter. It’s almost more fun shopping for party food than putting it together. I love to walk into Walmart, my go-to grocer, and see the displays all decked out in green and brown. It pumps me up for our own party. Since we have a handful of siblings that live close by, we all have our game time snacks assigned from memory each year: Nachos, Sliders, Cupcakes with dyed green coconut “grass” with edible football toppers, ice cold beverages, a fruit platter, (Kristi’s assignment since she has a new baby this year and can just snag it from the produce area and get back to her little babe!) and of course a good dip or two… like our dang good Game Day Salami Cheese Ball.

The table setup is always the same, hosted by our sweet momma: A throw away green tablecloth that looks like the game day field, football shaped plates with coordinating football napkins. I love how cheesy it is but always brings the festive spirit of the game alive!

Since my husband is all about the meat, I hit up the refrigerated section and grab a package of Gallo® Salame that goes in my “famous” cheese ball recipe, (a staple for Game Day food!) You can’t have a good cheese ball without cream cheese so be sure to snag a box or two of Great Value cream cheese while you’re there, it is SO smooth and makes a tasty dip!
