Whether you are a competitive sports observer or a competitive eater, Superbowl Sunday has something for everyone.  Deli Direct has a few football themed tips to help you score a touchdown with your Superbowl Sunday participation.  

Don't get intercepted at a busy store! Most stores get extra crowded selling chips and generic cheese dip right before Superbowl Sunday.  Save yourself the hassle by having it delivered. When the price is comparable to the big stores and the quality exceeds what you can purchase on those shelves, buy it online!  

Kickoff your party with flavorful sauces, salsas, and horseradish products! Your guests will love the kick of heat along side their beer as they watch the game (or hover protectively over the snack table). 

If you aren't hosting a party, don't fumble the host gift! Take the effort out of gift buying with one of many cheese and sausage gift baskets options. Your host will be surprised and delighted by your gift and you might even get to share some of the delightful treats if they add it to their spread. Now that's winning!   

Score a field goal with fun dessert dips! While chip dips are expected, dessert dips add excitement to the game.  Try them with strawberries, grapes or graham crackers. Your competitive eaters will appreciate it and definitely score you an extra three points.  

Whatever your Superbowl Sunday plans, score a safety by planning ahead, ordering high quality, american made products like cheese, sausages and dips from company that makes ordering online simple. Contact us here to place an order today!

Don’t torture friends and family with leftover turkey and stuffing sandwiches. There are so many better ways to get rid of leftovers, especially when cheese dips are in the house. A Spice Above’s Blazin’ Buffalo Dip is one of our personal favorites to use with holiday leftovers. Sold in one ounce packages, it’s made with cayenne peppers, paprika, garlic, hot sauce, butter, vinegar and more. Here’s what this fabulous cheese dip can do:

Shred any leftover holiday meats and fold them into a big bowl of Blazin’ Buffalo dip. Make sure that every last morsel of meat is absolutely drenched in the stuff. Then fill a platter with leftover bread, celery sticks, tortilla chips and other starchy dippers. Put the two dishes on to the table and let everyone dig in as often as they please.

Got leftover cranberry dressing too? Puree the dressing until it’s nice and smooth. Next, stir some into the cheese dip, tasting as you go. Then finish up by using the spread to make a platter full of turkey or ham Paninis. If you don’t have a Panini press, don’t get your winter scarf in a knot. Try grilling the sandwiches on the stove top or using old-fashioned toast instead.

Wondering what to do with leftover cauliflower and other vegetables? Guess what, Blazin’ Buffalo dip can jazz them up too. Just reheat the vegetables and use the cheese dip as a saucy topping or toss the veggies into it. Either way, they’ll be coated with hot, cheesy goodness. So everyone is less apt to complain about eating leftovers again.

And if your assortment of leftovers consists of nothing more than a little of this and a pinch of that, rejoice. Then reach for the refrigerated pizza crust. Pillsbury™ has a fantastic recipe posted online for Buffalo Chicken Cupcakes. They’re not really cupcakes, they just look like them. And the cups are filled with cheese dip and spoonfuls of leftovers. To discover other ways cheese dips can easily turn lame leftovers into something spectacular and mouth-watering, please contact us.

If you grew up in the 80s, there’s a strong likelihood that you remember watching John Hughes movies with your BFFs and rocking out to MTV’s Headbanger’s Ball, Friday Night Video Fights and Club MTV. Well, why not round up everyone and relive those glorious, high school days with the best party dips for fall? They’re big on flavor and won’t keep you from sliding back into those spandex pants. Hey, we know that you secretly want to see if they still fit. So pull them out of the closet, call up the girls and let’s get this 80s party started!

The best party dips for fall are clearly Harvest Pumpkin Spice, Big Apple Strudel, Sea Salt Caramel Delight and Sinfully Cin-a-Bun. They’re sweet yet provocative, like Emilio Estevez and Judd Nelson in The Breakfast Club. And you won’t need Ilan Mitchell-Smith or Anthony Michael Hall’s computer science equipment to conjure up something good. A few sliced apples and bowls full of the party dips will do just fine.

With that said, consider pairing each of John Hughes’ movies with a different party dip. For example, load up the DVD player with European Vacation and serve Big Apple Strudel with dipping pretzels. Sinfully Cin-a-Bun would be the ideal accompaniment to The Breakfast Club and we can’t think of anything better to serve during a showing of Nate and Hayes than Kokomo Key Lime.

And if the BFFs want more than party dip, never fear. You could serve meat snacks or grilling meats Chicago-style. They’d fit in with films like Ferris Bueller’s Day Off or Planes, Trains and Automobiles. For instance, you could make Chicago meat franks or deep-dish pizza topped with our smoked ham and summer sausage. To learn more products that would be totally awesome for 80s party night with the BFFs, please contact Deli Direct today.

You pick your party dips to perk up parties, and are, of course, to convince people to eat fresh raw veggies. The problem is that vegetables simply don't hold enough dip to empty out the container by the end of the party. Everyone has scarfed down the cherry tomatoes and carrots, and left the celery, plus half the King Of The Sea Dip. Now personally, I hate to waste food. I would finish off the celery in a chicken salad or fry it up with onions and beef. That, however, leaves the leftover dip. The next party isn't for months and the crackers have disappeared with the guests. What can we do with the dip?

  1. Sandwiches. Who wants boring old mayo and mustard on your hoagie, anyway? Seafood dips are particularly good with lettuce and tomato with rye. Jalapeno party dip could be just the spice to complement your turkey. You can mix and match. The great thing is that you don't need much per sandwich. No matter how little the guests left you, you can still use it.
  2. Chicken salad. Tuna salad goes great with ranch dip or Danish Bleu cheese dip, just to give you a few options to add variety to your salad. Again, the dip works as a substitute for mayonnaise. It can give a spicy tang to any salad. These can be mixed in with mayo if you don't have enough for a salad.
  3. Crust for baked chicken. Cover your chicken in dip and then dredge in bread crumbs for a fast way to jazz up dinner. You don't even need Parmesan cheese. You can make your chicken spicy by using Jalapeno dip or tangy by using Chipotle dip. It is up to you. You do need quite a bit to make good chicken breading, but sometimes a party gets cancelled or guests decide to fill up on cookies. There is no accounting for tastes.

Did you know that July is not only National Grilling Month; it is National Horseradish Month too? So break out the grilling meats and horseradish sauce. It’s time to light a fire in the EZ Disposable Grill and put some sizzle into your life. We’ve got the perfect horseradish marinade and condiment recipes. Just be forewarned. They’re known to spark a round of kisses for the cook, so pucker up and get ready to enjoy one of the best meals of your life:

Horseradish Marinade

To make our National Grilling Month marinade, you’ll need equal amounts of horseradish sauce and Dijon mustard. One tablespoon of each should yield enough to serve four center cut pork chops, NY strip steaks or chicken thighs. Once you’ve got the horseradish and Dijon mustard in the bowl, add two teaspoons of lemon juice and two tablespoons of high smoke point oil to it. Afterward, toss in some salt and pepper to taste before adding the grilling meats to the marinade and popping the bowl into the fridge. Let it remain in the fridge for one to two hours before removing the meats and placing them on to the EZ Disposable Grill.

Horseradish Mustard

If your list of grilling meats includes Polish kielbasa, seasoned bratwurst, jumbo franks or cheddar-jalapeno smoked bratwurst, you’re going to want to douse them with our horseradish mustard. Combine three tablespoons of salad dressing with equal amounts of Dijon mustard and horseradish. Next, mix in two teaspoons of both onion and garlic powder along with a ½ tablespoon of fresh parsley or another herb of your choosing. Once you’re done mixing, the horseradish mustard will be ready to go on to the grilling meats. If you don't want to go through the trouble of making a homemade version try out our horseradish mustard!

Horseradish Mayonnaise

Finally, you might want to swap out the plain mayonnaise for one infused with horseradish, sour cream and Dijon mustard. It’s great as a cold salad base and you can use it as a burger topping or veggie dip too. Simply combine 1/3 cup of unflavored or flavored sour cream with the horseradish mustard we mentioned above and that’s it. It’s dinner time! To learn more, please check out our collection of National Grilling - Horseradish Month products and contact us.

Are you ready to put a little sis-boom-bah into your Saturday nights? If so, reach for those sparklers and party dips. It’s time to make unforgettable platters filled with foods that will help keep everyone happily snacking under the fireworks’ red glare. You can make the platters as big or as small as you like. But we’d suggest going big because when our party dips and other gourmet products are involved, there are very little leftovers to spare.

Fireworks Fish Platter

Everyone’s heard of firecracker shrimp and salmon but you may have some people at the party who don’t like the heat. So, we’re suggesting that you prepare the fish and party dips separately. With that said, firecracker shrimp and salmon fans will undoubtedly love our Beat the Heat Habenero Dip because it’s just an explosion of fiery flavors. The same party dip also tastes amazing with fried clam strips, catfish nuggets and lobster rolls. But don’t limit the fish lovers to just one selection. Try adding our King of the Sea Dip, gimbap and baked pita chips to the platter too. And for those that have never had gimbap before, it’s nothing more than a seaweed wrapped assortment of rice stuffed with various fillings.

Grilled Fruit Platter

Grilled fruit platters are always winning rave reviews, especially if they’re served alongside of a Danish Blue Cheese Dip. Blue cheese dips are so creamy that they really balance well with the sweetness and acidity of many summer fruits. A few of the ones we’d suggest adding to the platter are pears, peaches, figs, oranges, apples, mangoes and pineapple. Grill them up right before you are ready to pull the platter together and serve the party dip cold. It will add even more contrast to the snack.

Grilled and Pickled Veggies

Grilled and pickled veggies would certainly put some sis-boom-bah into a Saturday night celebration too. They tend to taste wonderful with any number of party dips including Cool As A Cucumber and Western Ranch. To find your favorites and get the weekend fireworks started, please contact us today.

Horseradish gets a tough rap in some circles. With its strong scent and taste, this kickin' little root is sometimes better associated with sinus clearing than tasty treats. A lot of us think of it as a bitter herb, then never think of it again.

The problem is all in presentation! If you've been forced to eat it pure with a forkful of roast beef and thought it was too strong, you may have been tempted to write off a wide world of horseradish delicacies.

And a wide world is what we've got! If you're hesitant to dive right in, we've got some fantastic treats whose showcase of horseradish along with other flavors just might convert you!

Our Kickin' Tomato Horseradish Dip has a smooth bite with a cool aftertaste, meaning you can savor the flavor without rushing for a glass of water. It's on our most requested list for a reason!

Dicks Perky Pickles score a cool 1 out of 5 chilies on our special hotness ranking system. The horseradish gives the pickle chunks a great lift! Buy them by the gallon!

Horseradish and Wisconsin White Cheddar pair terrifically together for a zippy flavor that is not overpowering (but does register a 4 out of 5 chilies, so proceed with caution) in our Horseradish Cheese Spread. We also have a Horseradish Cheese Block that clocks in at 3 out of 5 chilies for more sensitive taste buds.

If you're a full-on fan of horseradish, do not be deterred! We're sure you'll love these celebrations of your flavor of choice. And just for you, we have Super Hot Horseradish, Rocket Radish (Three times hotter!!) and the Horseradish Heaven basket to help you attain all your horseradish hopes and dreams.

This Cinco de Mayo, give our hot sauces and Tango Taco Dip their independence by helping them stand out sombreros over the rest. And it won’t be hard to do either. There are probably more ways to use our hot sauces and taco seasonings than there are tequila bottles and agave plants in Jalisco. For instance, you could use the hot sauces and our collection of bloody Mary mixes to make an incredible array of classic bar drinks. Among them are bloody Marys, shooters, Michelantros, flatliners and sangritas.

If you’re not much of a bartender, we’d suggest going with the Michelantros. They’re nothing more than a mixture of beer, lime juice, hot sauce and cilantro vodka served in salt-rimmed glasses. Oh, and you’ll need a lime wedge garnish. The beer traditionally takes up most of the glass, followed by a jigger of cilantro vodka and a smidgen of lime juice. As for the hot sauce, add as many dashes as you dare. We’ve got five different ones for you and your guests to choose from, including one that’s got a 234,000 Scoville units rating. Now that’s a real tongue-number!

As far as the Tango Taco Dip goes, you could serve it the traditional way or consequir salvaje y loco. And for all of you non-Spanglish speakers out there, that means getting wild and crazy. For example, you might want to use the dip to make taco sliders, five alarm chili or Mexican spice-rubbed steaks. If you decide to go with the steaks, consider serving them with Guy Fieri’s Rajun’ Cajun Onion Rings. Yea, we know. Cajun country is nowhere near Mexico but who can resist a great, spicy fried onion?

April is one of our favorite times to kick back and celebrate for one simple reason. It’s National Grilled Cheese Month and who doesn’t love to find a great, hot and gooey sandwich on the menu? We don’t know of anyone that would kick such a great lunch to the curb, do you? Especially when there are so many fantastic cheese blocks, cheese spreads and dips available to delight the senses. Here are a few fun ideas to get the cheese fest started:

Aged Alpine Asiago Dip

There’s nothing that says you can’t celebrate National Grilled Cheese Month with a twist. So, whip up some Aged-Alpine Asiago Dip and slather it on garlic toast points. Then top the toast points with grilled tomato slices and enjoy a Tuscan-style meal on the go or a leisurely wine and craft beer tasting session with friends. Oh, and by the way, the dip would also pair well with roasted bell peppers, avocados and fresh fruit spreads.

No-Fuss Cheese Fondue


Since we’re talking about being a bit unconventional, we’ve got another idea you may want to try. It’s a fun way to celebrate the holiday in fuss-free, gourmet style. Simply take one of our fantastic cheese spreads and heat it up in a microwave-safe dish. Next, set out a variety of bread sticks and let people dip them into the hot cheese. You can pass it off as a deconstructed grilled cheese sandwich or a no-fuss fondue. And if you’re worried about double dippers, simply give everyone their own bowl of melted cheese spread.

Flavored Cheese Blocks

Lastly, let’s not forget about traditional grilled cheese offerings. You could make yours with a slice of cheddar or something unexpected. Good choices that will undoubtedly send shock waves through everyone’s palate are hot pepper, horseradish, onion and garlic cheese. Make the slices as thick or as thin as you like and grill them up when you’re ready. Oh, and don’t forget to include cheese block offerings for the less adventurous members of your bunch too.

To grab all the cheese blocks, spreads and dips you need to make National Grilled Cheese Month menus complete, please contact us at Deli Direct today.

I love finding uses for off-beat sauces. Pumpkin Butter is a new favorite. How many new uses have I found?

There are the obvious suggestions. You can use them as party dips for crackers and as spreads on toast or pancakes. I personally believe in putting huge dollops of pumpkin butter in oatmeal!

For a very healthful snack anytime, you can make a parfait by layering low-fat vanilla yogurt with pumpkin butter and topping the whole dish with granola.

Pumpkin Butter Dessert Bar

If you have no desire to eat something healthy and want to enjoy a decadent dessert, there is the pumpkin butter dessert bar. You mix yellow cake mix (reserving a cup), an egg, and 1/2 cup of melted butter and press the mix into the bottom of a 9×13 pan. Then you mix an entire jar of Pumpkin Butter with 2 eggs and whisk them together. Dump all that on your cake layer. Take your reserved cup of cake mix and add 1/4 cup softened butter, 1 tablespoon flour, 2 tablespoons light brown sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Mix this until crumbly and then throw it on top of the pumpkin layer. Bake that at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 40 to 45 minutes, and then top it with pecans for an extra crunch.

Pumpkin Butter Bread

If that is too much dessert for your pumpkin-eating preferences, there is pumpkin butter bread. This is made by whisking 2 cups flour with 1/2 teaspoon salt, 1/2 teaspoon baking soda, 1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, and a half teaspoon each of ground cloves and nutmeg. Then you take an egg and beat it together with 1 cup of brown sugar, 1/2 cup of apple juice, 1/4 cup of melted butter, and 3/4 cup of pumpkin butter. Mix your dry and wet mixtures together and pour half into a bread pan. Pour another 3/4 cup of pumpkin butter on the batter and then top it with the rest of your batter. Bake this at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 50 to 60 minutes. Let this cool for 10 minutes, and you will have one moist bread!

This is just a sample of what you can do with pumpkin butter, and any culinary adventurer should definitely explore all the options. We have the best pumpkin butter for you to experiment with, so contact us if you're ever in the mood for a little pizzaz on your plate.
