Cheer on the Cheeseheads with Cheesy Meatball Soup!

It’s hard to believe that a year ago today, we were in Key West, Florida, on a sales incentive trip.  What I wouldn’t give to be taking in the big game again in 80 degree weather!

For the final post in our “Souper Bowl” series, we’re honoring our Cheesehead customers and friends from Wisconsin.  (Please note: We’re using the term “cheesehead” as a term of endearment here.)

What better way to cheer on the green and gold than with a hot bowl of Cheesy Meatball Soup?  Thanks to Deb Eichacker from Salem, SD, for sharing this recipe with us.  GO PACK GO!
