Recipe for Marinated Sausage, Cheese, & Veggies


Looking for something fun to serve to the armchair quarterbacks during this weekís game? Marinated Cheese, Sausage, & Veggies is a perfect snack food, since it can be made ahead, itís loaded with hearty chunks of non-fru-fru things like salami or sausage, cheese, and olives, and itís served with skewers so thereís something to do if the favorite team isnít winning.
ĒĒ
Actually, any kind of cured sausage and cheese can be used, including the popular designer sausages (which are even better grilled before adding to the marinade); the official Hancock tasters especially like spicy sausages like Polish or Linguica, salami, and pepper-jack cheese. Both Mozzarella or Provolone cheese are also good. Roasted red, green, and/or yellow pepper chunks as well as roasted onion chunks can also be added.

Donít reserve this colorful appetizer just for game day Ė itís also nice on an appetizer buffet table any time of year. Serve it with crispy breadsticks, crackers, or bread squares.

8 ounces pepper jack cheese, cut into 1/2" chunks, or Provolone, Mozzarella, or other favorite cheese
