Did you know there are over 1,400 varieties of cheese? According to NationalDayCalendar.com, there are 18 specialty days in the calendar for cheese fanatics, including National Grilled Cheese and String Cheese Day.

Not only does cheese make a great snack any time, any day, it especially pairs well with football. And if you haven't been living under a rock lately, then you know Sunday's Eagles game is a BIG one.

Check out this awesome cheese (and beer) inspired recipe from All Recipes, that's perfect for game day this weekend.

  • 6 ounces of softened cream cheese
