Game Day Snacks Featuring Sartori Cheese

Last week, I was asked by #FoodieChats to create some game day snacks using Sartori Cheese.  I was so excited to participate!  A package arrived on Friday with three types of cheese from Sartori Cheese as well as a Green Bay Packers hat.

My boyfriend and I quickly started brainstorming ideas for what we would create.  Of course, we also had to make sure that we included beer with our game day snack foods.  We decided to make three items, featuring the three cheeses that were sent from Sartori Cheese.  We also decided to make sure to include the San Diego Chargers as well as use a cutting board in the shape of the great state of California!

First, we made cheese football crackers using the Chipotle Bellavitano cheese.  

Next up, we made bite sized grilled cheese sandwiches with apple slices, Sartori Montamore cheese and drizzled it with honey.  

Finally, we used chicken apple sausages with marinara sauce topped with Sartori Reserve Tuscan Blend Shaved cheese.

Cheese Football Crackers

8 ounces Sartori Chipotle Bellavitano
4 tablespoons butter
1 cup flour
5 tablespoons Left Coast Amber Lager Una Mas
1 teaspoons sea salt

Combine all ingredients in a stand mixer with dough hook.
Once a ball of dough is formed, roll out the dough and cut into desired shape.  In this case, we used a pizza cutter to create the football shapes as well as to score the lines on the crackers.
Bake at 375 degrees for 15-18 minutes.

Chicken Sausage with Marinara

One container of Sartori Reserve Tuscan Blend Shaved cheese
One package of chicken apple sausages
One small container of marinara sauce
One package of hot dog buns

Boil sausages in beer, finish off on grill.
Top sausages with marinara sauce and cheese.
