Last year’s Super Bowl between the New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons drew in a massive 111.3 million viewers, many of which took in the game at some sort of Super Bowl party. While plenty of bars and restaurants host their versions of these events, many of these gatherings happen at residences with big groups of friends. Of course, the person hosting the event wants to create the perfect food spread for their guests to munch on during the game.

Thankfully, Deli Direct exists to make it easier than ever for party hosts to put together a delicious selection of food and snacks that will make any crowd happy to be there, all with the added bonus of having these items shipped directly to their homes. Here’s a look at four of our favorite Super Bowl food ideas this year:

Party Dips

You can’t have a respectable Super Bowl party food spread without a couple of good dips, and Deli Direct offers a diverse smattering of delicious ones. Whether it’s one of our many creamy cheese spread options, our spicy Cha Cha Chipotle dip, our smooth Cool as a Cucumber dip, or even our rich Loaded Baked Potato dip, these foods bring extra life to the types of chips and veggies that typically show up at parties like these.

Sausage & Cheese Platter

There also are a number of different options for hard cheese and summer sausage platters, some of which come in our convenient Football Cheese and Sausage Line Up package. Frankly, any combination of smoked meats and decadent cheeses paired with some fancy crackers is more than enough to make partygoers’ bellies content. Here at Deli Direct, we’ve got plenty from which to choose, with many a cheese spread and sausage on the menu.

Jerky Galore!

In terms of pairing foods with football, few things are more perfect than Jack Link’s beef jerky, and we just so happen to sell a nice collection of various Jack Link’s sticks and jerky in a number of assorted flavors, shipped in an ice bucket that would be great for keeping the beer cold for your Super Bowl party.

Dessert Dips

Once everybody has finished munching on the evening’s main fare, they may find themselves experiencing a hankering for something sweet. Deli Direct sells a number of excellent dessert dips ranging from Key Lime to Apple Strudel to White Chocolate Raspberry. Each of these pair well with graham crackers or fruit and will serve as a sweet change from the evening’s saltier snacks. At the end of the night, no good host sends their guests home without a little dessert!

Serving these foods will keep your guests satisfied throughout the Big Game, so even those who care more about watching the funny commercials than the actual game on television can have a great time and enjoy some of the culinary delights available from Deli Direct.

 

 

Here at Deli Direct we sell a number of truly delicious fine cheeses, and determining which cheeses are best is something that we take great care in doing for the benefit of our customers. Of course, many of our customers love cheese in a way that goes well beyond our inventory, and in fact, a love of cheese and cheesemaking is one of the most interesting niche hobbies in the world.

For those people that are cheese aficionados, the following are some of the best food blogs on the web that focus on the art of making and enjoying fine cheese:

Culture

There could not be a cleverer name for a cheese blog, since “Culture” can mean both the process by which cheese is made and the high society in which fancy cheeses are enjoyed. This blog covers “Cheese Journeys” and even offers up an occasional Cheese of the Day, giving readers a good mix of worldly “culture” and excellent daily cheese options.

Cheese.com

These guys got their hands on the quintessential cheese URL, which is great considering this is one of the most comprehensive cheese blogs on the internet. This one catalogues just about every cheese in existence, either alphabetically or by type, even providing some information on vegetarian cheeses.

Wine and Cheese Place

This St. Louis, MO blog hones in on all sorts of great pairings for wines and cheeses, including links to online marketplaces where the pairings can be purchased. It is a no-frills, no-nonsense site, but there are tons of options for people looking for a great wine and cheese blog.

Cheese Underground

For those looking to learn how to make cheese themselves, Cheese Underground provides some great online tutorials for making some truly delicious homemade cheeses

Cheese and Champagne

Every bit as classy as it sounds, this blog focuses on wine and cheese pairings, but also updates readers with the latest news in the world of cheese. Highlights include interviews with cheese mongers, recipes, and coverage of cheese fests across the US and beyond.

Madame Fromage

Tenaya Darlington is a blogger that focuses on great cheese pairing ideas, but she also travels frequently and likes to document all the different cheeses she tries along the way. She is an entertaining read, and the cheese content is about as diverse and rich as it comes.

Miss Cheesemonger

Based in San Francisco, Vero Kherian’s blog features stunning photographs of artisan cheese alongside tips on how to pair them with different wine and other foods like jam. She founded Miss Cheesemonger in 2009 after starting a gig at a cheese shop. Vero also writes about the cheese she discovers on her travels and shares tips on what to do in locations like the Yukon.

Of course, the best place to find great cheeses is right here at Deli Direct. You can order any of a number of delicious cheeses and have them delivered right to your home. For those that want to experience cheese beyond our offerings, though, these blogs should help get them to the right place on the internet!

 

With the holiday season rapidly approaching, many families find themselves in the position to start preparing for the multitude of holiday gatherings set to take place in their homes. Some people can get really caught up in the work, organization, and preparation that goes into these get-togethers, but that need not necessarily be the case. Holiday entertaining actually can be fairly easy when done the right way.

Here at Deli Direct, we can play a small part in making those holiday gatherings easier, at least when it comes to the food offerings, but these holiday entertaining ideas should make any family soiree fun and memorable in the coming weeks: 

Abandon the Desire for Perfection

First and foremost, whatever those home magazines may suggest, there is no need to shoot for the “perfect” holiday party. It flat-out isn’t going to happen. Decorations may get accidentally ruined, someone may forget an important side dish, or maybe the turkey or ham ends up a little dry because it was cooked a bit too long. Whatever the case, throw out the desire for perfection and remember that the season is about spending time with family, not impeccable table centerpieces. 

Don’t Procrastinate

There are a million different adages out there preaching the pitfalls of procrastination, and all of them are true for holiday gatherings. Get started cooking a day or two early with certain desserts or perhaps side dishes that may only need reheating later. Also, clean the house and get your table(s) set the night before to avoid any last-minute crunches for time. 

Don’t Cook What You Don’t Have To

This is where Deli Direct can help. With our huge spread of deli meats, cheese spreads, dessert spreads, and party dips, there is no shortage of great party foods available on our site that require zero cooking on the behalf of the party host. Everybody loves a good meat and cheese plate, for example, and all that takes is a quick internet order and a little unwrapping. That leaves more time to cook what needs to be cooked while keeping your guests well-fed in the meantime.

Spread Out the Buffet(s)

To encourage more social intermingling and to ensure that food is available all over the house, consider spreading out the buffets to different areas. Why not make food available to your guests wherever they go at your gathering?

Delegate

It can be incredibly hard to cede control when it comes to preparing for a big family get-together, but knowing what has to be done yourself and what can be delegated to someone else is a key part of keeping preparations as easy as possible. Consider asking friends or family members to bring table decorations, appetizers, or party favors. If you’re looking to stay entertained during the party, ask a friend to serve as the “DJ” for the night and put together a crowd-pleasing playlist. Guests can also bring cards or board games to keep the fun going after the meal.

The holidays are meant to be enjoyed, so hopefully these few tips (as well as a few delicious items from Deli Direct) can help your holiday entertaining go as smoothly as possible!

 

 

 

Every October the time comes to plan for the delightful deluge of Halloween parties, and whether you are the one hosting or just have been asked to bring something to a potluck, you’ll likely looking for creative Halloween food ideas. Here at Deli Direct we offer a lot of the main ingredients necessary for some of these spooky treats, but we can only provide the building blocks. Turning those foods into something fun and frightening is entirely up to you.

 

Six Halloween Food Ideas

While there is no shortage of great Halloween party ideas this time of year, the following foods are sure to fit into any Halloween theme while also remaining incredibly delicious.

 

Spooky Veggies & Dip

The top ends of carrots just so happen to look a lot like fingers, especially if you dip the ends in one of the many Deli Direct veggie dips to create the illusion of fingernails. Small tomatoes can be sliced to look like eyes, too, with pickles or small peppers serving as the irises. Just serve with the Hearty Cheddar Bacon dip or Hot Jalapeño Dip for a delicious, fun treat.

 

Hot Dog Mummies

Get a hold of some hot dogs or small sausages and wrap them in a strip of crescent roll dough to make them look like mummies. You even can drop some food-color dabs for eyes!

 

Ghostly Chocolate Lover’s Dream

The Chocolate Lover’s Dream dip is one of our favorites here at Deli Direct, but in preparing it slightly differently, the top of the dip could be made to look like a ghost face, with graham cracker sticks around the edge of the plate for dipping.

 

Jack ‘O Lantern Dip Bowls

Get a few orange bell peppers, which look like miniature pumpkins, and carve them so they look like tiny Jack ‘O Lanterns. Any of our delicious dips or cheese spreads can be emptied into the pepper and served much more creatively than just some white ramekin or glass dish.

 

Skeleton Bone Dip

Another fun trick for our dips is to simply shape them like a skeleton bone. There are cookie cutters that can help you do this, or it can be done by simply shaping them by hand. Put the formed dip in the freezer for about ten minutes to help solidify its shape, then decorate the platter of “bone” dip and crackers with skeleton decorations to emphasize the theme.

 

Red Ghost Nuts

For those that like something a little spicy, our hot Red Ghost Nuts are great for a Halloween party when served directly from the container, which features an angry skull-faced grim reaper right on the wrapper. Perhaps no item in our inventory is more tailor-made for Halloween!
 
Feel free to try any of these excellent Halloween food ideas this October, as each of them is equally fun for kid parties and adult gatherings. This is one of the more enjoyable seasons of the year, with some of the most delicious seasonal foods, and Deli Direct has what you need to make those light-hearted, slightly spooky foods happen!

 

When it comes to food, there may not be a more delicious season all year than autumn, and this goes way beyond the ubiquity of “pumpkin spice” at coffee shops and grocery stores. No, there really are some truly excellent culinary delights this time of year, many of which are available right here at Deli Direct. Fall foods, in fact, are among our specialties. 

5 of the Best Fall Foods

The following are some of our favorite fall foods here at Deli Direct, including some that can be purchased easily from our online store this autumn:

Grilled Pork Chops with Homemade Applesauce

Just because the temperature has dipped a bit does not mean it’s time to put the grill away for the season. In fact, cooking delicious meats over an open flame is much more pleasant in the fall than in the summer. In ordering some of our mouth-watering seven-ounce center cut pork chops, the baseline for this dish is an awesome piece of meat that can be further enhanced by some of the home-grown apples that pop up every year at this time. A nice homemade applesauce or apple chutney goes great with our grilled chops.

Pumpkin Pancakes with Pumpkin Butter

While pancakes of all types obviously are delightful all year long, whipping up some special pumpkin flapjacks results in one of the best fall foods known to humankind, especially when topped with some Deli Direct pumpkin butter and a little whipped cream. There might not be a fluffier, sweeter breakfast available this time of year.

Butternut Squash Soup

People spend all summer tending their gardens, and while the tomatoes and peppers tend to pop up over the summer, butternut squash requires a little more patience. When it finally is ready, however, it can be used in the sort of warm fall soup that takes the crispness right out of the fall air. Even better is that it can be made beforehand and kept warm in the crockpot for an easy dinner.

Harvest Pumpkin Spice Dip

Here at Deli Direct, we offer a number of delicious dip mixes, but the Harvest Pumpkin Spice dip is one of the most versatile. It can be used for cheesecake, as topping for pumpkin pie, or just as a pumpkin cheesecake dip for graham crackers or cookies. Pumpkin spice is everywhere in the fall, and this is one of the most delicious ways you can experience it.

Apple Pie

Any sort of apple pie is delicious, but they are especially delightful when the apples are freshest in September and October. There are some who would say that this is not just one of the best fall foods, but the single best fall food in existence. Apple pie is the perfect dessert, as nothing warms up a chilly house like the smell of apples and cinnamon.


All of these popular fall foods are not only delicious but also fairly easy to cook. As the weather cools, kids head back to school, and football starts popping up on television, people can’t help but get a taste for some of these excellent autumnal dishes. Here a Deli Direct, we can ship some of the essential ingredients for these recipes straight to your door.

 

 

August may mean the summer season is coming to a close but it also heralds the arrival of football season and the great tailgating foods that come along with it!

September typically serves as the beginning of football season for both the NCAA and the NFL, and that means die-hard fans already are gearing up to visit parking lots with coolers full of refreshing beverages and a grill in tow. Here at Deli Direct, we have some quick and easy food suggestions for your autumnal tailgating events, including many delicious options among the items that we offer for easy order and delivery.

Here are a few of our favorites heading into fall:

Grilled Meats – Of all the most classic tailgating recipes, none is quite so easy as throwing a prime piece of meat onto a charcoal grill. We just so happen to offer several perfect grilling meats, including center-cut pork chops, eight-ounce New York Strip Steaks, jumbo franks and smoked bratwurst, all of which cook up rather well over the smoke of a fire. Just heat up your charcoal, grill up the meat, and watch the happy faces chow down all around you.

Party Dips – Something else that doesn’t require a whole lot of preparation is a party dip paired with either chips or fruit. For example, here at Deli Direct, we offer everything from a Hearty Cheddar Bacon dip perfect for dipping raw vegetables into a Loaded Baked Potato dip that turns ordinary potato chips into something much more decadent. You also could try the Heaven Sake Cheesecake fruit dip, the Sinfully Cin-a-bun dip for graham crackers, or the Stuffed Artichoke dip, which goes great with pita chips. All of these are incredibly easy options that take no more work than placing some produce onto a platter and peeling back the lid on the dip.

Cheese & Sausage – Something about a delicious smoky sausage paired with a sharp, rich slice of Wisconsin cheese makes for a really good snack. Laying out a platter with various cold cuts like summer sausage, pepperoni, or smoked ham to go along with delicious Wisconsin block cheeses or cheese curds is about as easy as it gets. These are some of the first foods to be consumed at many parties because they’re so delightfully addictive, and they hardly require any preparation at all.

While you can order any of these delicious and easy tailgating foods from Deli Direct, we also offer Football Party Snack Packages that combine many of the most popular foods, complete with football-shaped serving platters. Your tailgating food will not only taste great, it will look great, too. Check out any of our great football food anytime, and make sure you are all stocked up for your tailgating events this upcoming season!

There is nothing that says summer like the smell of meat on the grill! Whether you use charcoal or gas, grill burgers or smoke pork shoulders, or are a complete grilling newbie, here’s ten tips to help you get the most out of your summer grilling.

  1. Always clean your grill: The old adage that a grill encrusted with old, burnt, meat “adds flavor” is not true at all. A hot grill is easiest to clean, so give it at least ten minutes of heat before scrubbing it down with a grill brush to get the big stuff off, then use tongs to clean it with a paper towel soaked in vegetable oil to get it ready for cooking.
  2. Keep the heat in: Grills are designed to cook with the covers on. Flare ups and temperature are much easier to control if you use that cover. You don’t want to char your meat in flames, you want the heat to rise and cook your meat to the perfect temperature. Speaking of temperature…
  3. Use a thermometer: The only way to be sure your meat is ready is to use a thermometer. With experience, you can learn to judge doneness by touch, but this takes quite a while and you will have some stumbles along the way. Most grills today have built-in thermometers, but if not, add a separate meat thermometer to your grill kit.
  4. For charcoal grills, use lumpwood and a chimney starter: Lumpwood burns cleaner, adds no foreign chemicals to your meat, and provides a hotter flame. It’s slightly harder to control, but produces great results once you get used to it. A chimney starter eliminates the need for lighter fluid or “quick-light” charcoal – just add paper underneath and watch those coals get burning hot!
  5. Temper meat before grilling: Try not to put cold meat directly on the grill, but instead let it sit out for 30 minutes to come closer to room temperature, which will ensure a more even cook. The one exception is if you’re looking for a truly rare steak or tuna, then keep it cold until you slap it on the grill to sear the outside.
  6. Add some smoke: There is nothing like adding a nice smoky taste to your meat. Oak, hickory, and mesquite are some of the most common. Personally I like to use smoke when cooking some beautiful center cut pork chops and baked potatoes.
  7. Don’t move squeeze or flatten: You really should touch the meat as little as possible. Don’t move it around the grill, or push it hard against the grill to ensure it’s cooked. Squeezing or flattening meat releasing some of the juice, which then dries it out. Speaking of drying out…
  8. Consider brining, marinating, and glazes: Brining is a terrific way to prepare pork in particular but can be good for poultry as well. Marinades and glazes are great for all kinds of meat, just find the ones you like and tweak them until they become your go to masterpieces. Weber’s cider-simmered brats recipe is one of my favorites – try it with these gorgeous German-style bratwurst from Deli Direct!
  9. Find some recipes you love: Treat grilling like regular cooking and learn some great recipes. My two favorite sources are Weber, both their website (also with lots of great video tips on grilling techniques) and their book Way to Grill , the BBQ Pit Boys online videos.
  10. Don’t overcook pork!: Pork is literally my favorite meat to grill, but it is devastating when someone overcooks it. Stop when the inside is pink, then let it sit for five minutes. That’s more than enough to ensure it’s safe to eat and still be delicious!
 

 

Summertime is the perfect opportunity to get together with family and friends. The gorgeous weather in the area and all throughout the Midwest is just waiting to be enjoyed. Plus, with the 4th of July coming up there isn’t any better time to entertain a group of your favorite guests at your home for a backyard barbeque.

You know what makes 4th of July entertaining a thousand times better? Ordering quick and fresh delivery from Deli Direct! We are your go-to source for gourmet high quality deli meats, cheeses, sausages, and even dessert treats brought right to your door with our easy online ordering. If you are looking to put together a fantastic soiree with all the right foods to have, look no further than Deli Direct. Here are some ideas on how to make your 4th of July entertaining the absolute best it can be.

Have a Cheese Wheel and Sausage Platter

 
With so many different cheeses to select, you can pick out a variety of natural and cold packed cheese to set up a terrific sausage and cheese wheel. This form of charcuterie combined with tasty cheese will keep your guests coming back for more. As an appetizer platter to set out when your friends or family arrive, it’s going to taste amazing with a cold glass of summer rose, or even a hoppy craft beer from a local brewery. Nothing says summer like chilled drinks and eats with friends, don’t you agree?
 

Set Out Olives and Pickles to Snack On

 
Another perfect app to have is a selection of olives and pickles to snack on. During the hot summer months, it’s best to think of appetizers that you can serve room temperature or even cold to your guests. Try our Hot and Spicy Beans or the JoJo’s Kick n’ Hot Kosher Dill Pickles to give a little fiery heat to your pickle platters.

 

If you are an olive lover, our selection is top notch. The only trouble you’ll have is trying to decide which kind of olives to order. Try the Redneck Cheddar Head Stuffed Olives, Redneck Habanero Stuffed or the Mild Martini Olives Gift Pack for a less spicy option to set out. Here’s a fun fact, did you know that olives are fruit and not vegetables? Well, whatever they are called, they are sure tasty.
 

Party Dips Are a Must Have

 
A few party dips with either chips, or veggies is a nice idea as well. You can even get a little creative with it by having sweet as opposed to savory dips for a dessert presentation. The Sea Salt Caramel Delight Dip is perfect with apple slices, berries or even cut up sponge cake or angel food cake. You can get really creative with the kinds of finger foods you serve with various dips. Just remember no double dipping!

 

Grill To Your Heart’s Content

 
Grilling is obviously one of the best 4th of July summertime party meals. At Deli Direct, we offer a great variety of premium meats to throw on the grill for all your happy carnivore guests. This would include of course traditional Jumbo Meat Franks for a Chicago style dog (no ketchup please!), but also New York Strip Steaks, and Center Cut Pork Chops. You can’t go wrong with a grilled entree to satisfy your hungry guests. No one wants a rumbling tummy when they are waiting for a neighborhood fireworks show.

 

With all the fantastic options in food, entertaining has never been easier to plan for. Let Deli Direct make your next 4th of July party, a gathering of food and friends to remember.

 

If you're a fan of spicy food--especially hot peppers--then you've likely heard of the ghost pepper. This one is so potent that eating it raw is often considered dangerous and is not something the average person does. In some restaurants across the country there are contests that award people who successfully eat ghost peppers. Curious about them, but don’t want to go all in just yet? Thankfully, it's possible to enjoy it in a less hazardous way with our Blazzing Hot Ghost Pepper Cheese spread.

What Is The Blazzing Hot Ghost Pepper Cheese Spread?

This delicious spread offers you eight ounces of cheesy heat for under five dollars, and is a nice alternative to other spicy pepper dips. Keep in mind that compared to our Jalapeno Cheese Sprea d with a heat rating of two out of five peppers, the ghost pepper spread is a full five out of five on this scale. While it is intense, the combination of the cheese and pepper makes it slightly more palatable and more versatile than eating a pepper straight up.

Even with it being less hot than eating a ghost pepper, it’s still going to burn a bit. We've helped prepare you for this—even if an experienced spicy-food eater—by coming up with a few guidelines.

Before Your Ghost Pepper Cheese Spread Consumption

  • Gradually increase your spicy tolerance by eating Jalapeno and other less intense peppers. Cook with them and eat them raw. If you’re already accustomed to eating hot foods, you might be able to skip this part. But if you’re sensitive the heat, this step is crucial.
  • Eat at least one spicy pepper a day to further increase your tolerance – start with pepper products and increase to whole raw peppers.
  • The day you want to eat your cheese spread, eat a normal non-spicy meal--something small--to help provide your body with some fat to absorb some of the spiciness of the pepper. This might seem like cheating, but the ghost pepper is really this hot.
  • Before you eat the spread, take antacids such as Tums, or other products to aid with indigestion and heartburn that may occur soon after eating this. Getting the pepper past your mouth is only the first part, as your stomach can give you enduring problems for days to follow if you don’t treat it right.

Recovering After You Do

After you're done eating, have a dairy beverage or even ice cream on standby to help cool the burning inside your mouth. Dairy products have been proven to be an effective way to decrease the severity of spicy food. This is because the casein in milk binds to the oils in the peppers to help wash away the heat. It’s okay to let it sit in your mouth for a while before swallowing.

Be sure to wash your hands with soap and warm water to extract the pepper oils from your skin. This grease can cause burning sensations and irritation should it get into your eyes or other delicate parts of your body. The oils can settle deep into the grooves of your skin so don’t underestimate ability to burn the next day, even with a few washings. 

How You Can Use This Spread

Once you know your tolerance for this spread, you can enjoy it a number of ways.

  • Spread it on a variety of delicious crackers.
  • Use it as a chip dip for when Jalapeno dips aren't spicy enough.
  • Dabble a little on a cheeseburger to give it a nice kick.
  • Spread it on a cold meat and cheese sandwich.

These simple serving techniques will help make your ghost pepper spread more than a novelty item. Be mindful of putting this dip out during a gathering. People should be warned of its heat, and it should not be within easy reach of children.

If you’ve wanted to try the ghost pepper and just didn’t think you could handle the heat, this cheese spread might be a good way to find out. Just remember to take proper precautions before and after eating it. It's not very often that you have to think this much about eating one food, but your experience will be better when you know what to expect and how to handle it.

As the weather warms and the calendar starts to fill up with barbecues and picnics, many of us are racking our brains for some fun and tasty recipes to share with friends and family. Summer sausage is one of those foods that many people enjoy but often don’t consider for use beyond the usual cheese and meat plate. This is a shame because summer sausage is actually much more diverse and adaptable than people assume.

Here are four unique ways that you can use our summer sausage to create delicious snacks and meals.

1. Mini Sausage Sandwiches

There are a couple of different ways that you can use summer sausage as "mini-sandwiches." The method you're probably thinking of is placing small slices of summer sausage on top of crackers or slices of baguette and topping it with a bit of sharp cheddar. While definitely delicious, there is an even better way to make mini-sandwiches: by using the summer sausage as the bread.

That's right: you're going to cut your sausage into thick slices and place cheese, turkey, and your favorite sandwich dressing between the summer sausage slices. This might seem a little strange, but trust us when we say it's shockingly good. It's also a great way for people who are cutting back on carbs to still enjoy the treat.

2. Hot & Honey-Glazed

Summer sausage is traditionally served cold or at room temperature, but it doesn’t have to be. When cooked, summer sausage takes on a unique flavor and texture that is merely hinted at when it’s uncooked.

Start by preheating your oven to 325 degrees. While the oven is heating, slice your summer sausage accordion style (¾ the way through), place in a small baking dish, and drizzle with our delicious Triple Treat Honey Glaze Spread.

Once the oven is done heating, slide the dish into the oven and let it cook for approximately 40 minutes, basting the sausage with the glaze halfway through. Then, take the sausage out of the oven, finish slicing, and serve it with a side of potatoes. Mix the leftover meat drippings with some extra glaze for a smoky-sweet dipping sauce.

3. A Zesty Salad Topping

People often consider salads to be a somewhat boring food. However, there are a variety of ingredients that you can use to spice up your salads, including delicious salad dressings, croutons, and, of course, summer sausage.

The tangy flavor of our summer sausage is perfect for just about any salad type, but we think it goes best in a Caesar salad with tomatoes, herbed croutons, cucumbers, and fresh mozzarella. Drizzle with a simple dressing of balsamic vinegar, olive oil, and herbs, and you’re ready to eat!

The trick to this recipe is to dice your meat small enough to make it easy to sprinkle on your salad. The bits should be just a little over bacon bit size. Sprinkle them directly on top of the salad before adding your dressing, and then mix everything together. You'll be surprised at how good these homemade summer sausage bits are on your salad. You might never use bacon bits again!

4. Spicy Sub Sandwich

Sub sandwiches are always a delightful lunch or dinner, and they can be made even better with our Ragin Cajun Summer Sausage. Use a meat slicer to cut your summer sausage 1/8th of an inch thick, and layer it onto a homemade sub. Now you can do one of two things: eat the sub as is or toast it in your toaster oven.

Heating it will bring out some of the flavors of the meat and give the bread an extra crunch. Next, add lettuce, cucumbers, tomatoes, or any other veggies you like. Just before serving, add mayonnaise, one of our delicious cheese spreads, or some Big Bad Bubba’s BBQ Sauce, and enjoy!

As you can see, summer sausage can be used to add a unique and tangy flavor to a variety of dishes. The ways that it can be integrated into multiple recipes makes it an indispensable part of any kitchen. To learn more about our summer sausage or to place an order, contact us today.
