You can also set up a content type that uses a pre-formatted spreadsheet as a template.  That content type will then show up in the New menu, but doesn't have to be the deafault; the above solution is my choice when there needs to be only one content type per library, but this solution is better for when multiple content types need to show up.  You can set any of the content types to be the default content type (the top of the New list) by moving it to first place in the order.

This link is from the same site as above:
