Chedz Cheese Football – Courtesy of Susan Hall

We discovered how easy it is to make a cheese football decorated with Chedz sticks.  This recipe uses the similar base recipe as the Mini Chedz Cheese Ball recipe on this sight.  Any cheese ball recipe will work.  Follow the instructions to decorate the football.  Putting the Chedz sticks on the cheese football was almost like completing a puzzle.  It was fun to find the right size sticks (Chedz sticks vary in sizes) to decorate the cheese ball.  Try it yourself!

  1. Mix cream cheese, cheddar cheese, garlic powder, salt and Worcestershire sauce together in a bowl with an electric mixer until completely blended.
  2. Place the cheese mixture in the refrigerator to harden to make it easier to roll up into balls. Refrigerate for 30 minutes to 1 hour.
  3. Take the cheese mixture out of the refrigerator and place the cheese mixture onto a sheet of waxed paper or parchment paper and form it into the shape of a football.
  4. Decorate the cheese football with the Chedz sticks (this is the fun part!) until cheese is fully covered.
  5. To add "laces", take a slice of mozzarella cheese or any preferred white cheese (even a stick of string cheese will work) and cut it into thin slices. Cut one long slice for the center of the football and smaller slices for the laces. Place the long slice horizontally along the center of the football, then arrange the small slices horizontally on top.
  6. Add the remaining Chedz around the football on the serving platter so guests can use those for dipping.

Instructions
  1. Heat oil in a pot over medium heat approximately to 350℉.
  2. Mix together the ground beef, salt, pepper, and garlic powder in a bowl.
  3. Peel and slice the onion into 1-centimeter rings, and detach the rings from each other. Be gentle as the rings can tear. If you cut them too thinly, they may tear. If opting to make just Chedzburger patties, skip this step.
  4. Take a spoonful of the beef mixture and press it into the bottom of a ring.
  5. Press a cheddar square into the center of the beef. Seal the top with another spoonful of the beef, pressing it flat. Repeat with the rest of the rings.
  6. Crush the Chedz into fine crumbs using a rolling pin, food processor or Magic Bullet. A food processor is recommended for this amount of Chedz.
  7. Put the flour, eggs, and Chedz crumbs into three separate bowls for dipping.
  8. Dip a ring into the flour, shake off excess, then into the egg, the Chedz crumbs, then back to the eggs, and one last time into the Chedz crumbs. Repeat with the remaining rings.
  9. Fry the rings for 5-6 minutes, until deep golden-brown.
  10. Serve the rings with ketchup. If making Chedzburgers, put in a double bun and add favorite garnishments.
