Recipe Tips


Arrange meats and cheeses in football shape on large board or platter.


Surround with crackers for the football fans. Use green onion strips to make laces for the football. 


Fill small bowls or baskets with carrot sticks, celery sticks and additional crackers to serve with the meats and cheeses. 


Cheese and meat boards can be prepared for any number of servings, depending on the size of the gathering. Use a guideline of 1 oz. cheese, 1/2 oz. meat and 1 oz. (or labeled serving size) of crackers* per person. For a well-balanced board, fill in any empty spaces on board with fresh vegetables. For the 4 servings shown here, figure on purchasing a total of 1/4 lb. (4 oz.) cheese and 2 oz. sliced meats. Have plenty of RITZ Crackers, TRISCUIT Crackers and WHEAT THINS Original Snacks available for guests to choose from, along with the fresh vegetables.

*Serving size of RITZ Crackers is 1/2 oz.
