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!

Jack Frost is renowned for giving Americans more than just the cold shoulder, especially when January rolls around. It seems at that time, he’s also got a passion for nibbling on ears, finger tips, little noses and more. But there is one thing that Jack and his frosty friends can’t resist. It’s hot sauce. And using the right one may just keep him from nipping off more than he should this blustery season.

So which hot sauce will distract Jack long enough for everyone to bundle up tight? We’re thinking a nice bottle of Spicy Chipotle Sauce ought to keep his taste buds busy. Chipotles traditionally have a multidimensional flavor profile because they are treated differently than raw jalapeno chilies. Picked at the perfect time, they’re dried in smoke-filled chambers that help concentrate the peppers’ inherent spiciness.

Afterward, they’re combined with other premium ingredients to make a sauce that’s guaranteed to melt a man or woman’s frosty heart. At least it will please those who love chilies with Scoville ratings in the 5,000 to 10,000 range. And all of that heat will undoubtedly do more than just raise a person’s core body temperature. It will perk up traditional, winter comfort foods too.

Let’s take steaming crockpots full of white bean chili as examples. They’re normally made with ground turkey or chicken, chili spices and white beans. As good as that sounds, it’s even better with a few teaspoons of Spicy Chipotle Hot Sauce stirred into the mix. And don’t forget to toss some shredded, Chipotle Pepper Wisconsin cheese on top, if you dare. They make incredible white chili accompaniments too.

To grab a bottle of Spicy Chipotle Hot Sauce and give old Jack Frost a run for his icicles that he’ll never forget, please contact Deli Direct today.

What can be naughty or nice and starts out in a pumpkin patch? Not sure? Okay, here’s another tip. It can be served cold or hot and also contains a heaping dose of autumn apples. Give up? Why it’s pumpkin hot sauce and after the first try, you won’t want to eat a fall, holiday meal without some. “What’s pumpkin hot sauce?’, you say. Well, lean in my pumpkin loving friends and we’ll tell you:

It’s actually a mixture of pumpkin butter, hot sauce, curry and a handful of other ingredients. You can make it any consistency desired and use it in a number of pump-alicious ways. For instance, some folks like to use it in place of chicken broth when making their homemade stuffing. Others love to pour it over their roasted turkey, rib-eye steaks or mashed potatoes instead of traditional gravy.We’ve even seen pumpkin hot sauce drizzled over pan-roasted vegetables and used as a basis for soups. And by the way, the soups may be hot or cold. Speaking of cold, the hot sauce infused mixture could be used to make homemade pumpkin ice cream too. Here’s the basic hot sauce recipe to get the pumpkin party started:

Place all of the ingredients into a sauce pan and hit it with an immersion blender to break up the chunks of vegetables or apples. Next, turn the heat on and let the pumpkin mixture simmer until you’re pleased with the consistency.  Continue by removing the pumpkin hot sauce from the pan and using it as desired. As long as it’s stored in an air-tight container and stirred every so often, it should keep in the fridge for at least four to seven days without separating.

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.

BBQ sauces aren’t just for briskets, burgers, picnic shoulders and chuck roasts. We know of Deli Direct fans who like to use our barbecue sauces to make meatballs, meatloaf and pizza. But we bet you didn’t know BBQ sauces may be used to make compound butters, salad dressings, deviled eggs, refried beans, sandwich spreads, jellies and cocktails too! It’s a delicious, smoky fact.

Barbecue Sauce Basics

Whipping up BBQ refried beans, deviled eggs, compound butters, sandwich spreads and salad dressings are generally as easily as stirring in some sauce. So today, we’re going to focus on the cocktails and jellies because they require a bit more finesse. Let’s start with the base of great, BBQ sauce cocktails, simple syrup. It’s nothing more than equal parts granulated or brown sugar and water that get heated on to the stove. One cup of each will typically yield you 1-1/2 cups of syrup.

Big Bad Bubba’s Barbecue Bar Syrup

Once you have your sugar and water into the pot, reach for a bottle of Big Bad Bubba’s Barbecue Sauce. Add about ¼ of a cup to the pot, a little at a time, tasting as you go. When the syrup develops enough barbecue flavor to please your palate, stop and bottle it. It should stay fresh in the fridge for about a week, providing that you don’t use it all up before then. During happy hour, simply use the barbecue syrup every time a cocktail recipe calls for regular simple syrup.

Big Bad Bubba’s Barbecue Jelly

Now let’s move on to the barbecue jelly. Ask home canning enthusiasts and they’ll tell you that jelly recipes typically start with fruit pectin, a liquid and granulated sugar. The unique flavors come from the liquid and whatever fruits or vegetables are added to the mix. To make barbecue flavored ones, we’d suggest using Kraft’s freezer apple or hot pepper jelly recipe with a twist. Simply replace one half of the apple juice with Big Bad Bubba’s Barbecue Sauce and ta dah! You’ll be able to enjoy some of the best barbecue jelly in the world. To learn more about Big Bad Bubba’s Barbecue Sauce and other ways to sass up your springtime, please contact Deli Direct.

Hurra! It’s almost time to break out the best grilling meats, kick up our kierpces and celebrate National Polka Weekend. Are you ready to eat, drink and polka for 72 hours straight? If not, let us help you prepare for the big weekend, which this year happens to fall on May 22nd. Because it’s also Memorial Day Weekend, you’ll certainly need one of our large, EZ Disposable Grills and several packages of Polish Kielbasa. They’re hickory-smoked and ready for the grill. Each package will be enough to make a dozen Polish Boys, Chicago-style

Of course no Chi-Town, Polish Boy sandwich would complete without a bun and three other items; vinegar based coleslaw, Chicago Hit Sauce and hand-cut French fries. And if you want to replace the hit sauce with Big Bad Bubbas BBQ Sauce, we don’t think too many Polish Boy fans will complain. If they do, you can always point them in the direction of the appetizer table. Just make sure that you fill it with Polish kielbasa chips and a wide variety of hot sauces. The chips are easy enough to make.

Simply grill up some extra Polish kielbasa and let it cool. Then slice each link into bite-size rounds and put them into a decorative bowl. Squirt some of hot sauces or honey glaze into a second bowl and provide an assortment of toothpicks. Afterward, encourage the Polish Boy purists to spear the kielbasa chips with the picks and then dip them into one of the sauces before taking a bite. That should satisfy their hunger without stepping on to their Chi-Town pride. If not, provide heaping bowls full of sauerkraut, Polish coleslaw, garlic stuffed olives and pickles. In Chicago, they’re National Polka Weekend staples too. To learn more about the best grilling meats for Polish celebrations, please contact us at Deli Direct.

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? To find out more about adding our hot sauces and spicy dips to your Cinco de Mayo menu, please contact our Deli Direct team today.

Top of the morning to ya! If there is anything that gets Irish eyes smiling at this time of day, it's meat snacks and loaded potatoes! So we’ve put together a few meal ideas that will help you bring the family’s littlest leprechauns to the table with an impish twinkle in their eyes. Our first classic Irish dish starts with hickory-smoked ham roll and beef summer sausage.

Most full Irish breakfasts include two types of meat snacks, baked beans, eggs, roasted tomatoes, potatoes, sautéed mushrooms and two types of pudding. They are normally served alongside of Irish soda bread, assorted spreads, teas and juices. For our Americanized version of the dish, we’d suggest pan frying slices of our perfectly seasoned, hickory-smoked ham roll and summer sausage. However, you could opt to use gourmet hard salami, super stick pepperoni, old-fashioned bologna or Canadian style bacon instead.

As for the puddings, the traditional dish calls for black and white. Because many Americans tend to shy away from European style puddings, we’d suggest sticking with an extra helping of creamy braunschweiger liverwurst or cooked oatmeal. It won’t be the same, but the kids are likely to find it more palatable.

When it comes to the baked beans, consider kicking them up a notch. Add a small amount of horseradish products or hot sauces to them before filling up the kids’ plates. The potato pancakes could be made into something extra special too with the introduction of horseradish or Wisconsin specialty cheeses. There are a lot of different cheese flavors to consider, including horseradish cheese. We’d also suggest bringing cheese spreads to the table, which could be paired with the Irish soda bread.

If a full Irish breakfast sounds like too much for your kids to handle, don’t worry. You could always serve scrambled eggs, loaded home fries, Irish soda bread and cheese spreads instead. To load up the home fries, season them with our Loaded Baked Potato Dip and chunks of 95% fat-free lite summer sausage. Then pan-fry the mixture until the potatoes are tender and brown.

Barbecue sauces are a summer staple in many homes. There's barbecue sauce on the hot dogs, barbecue sauce on the chicken, maybe even barbecue sauce on the steak! Best of all, of course, are huge, meaty rips slathered in barbecue sauce, fresh off the grill and falling apart between the plate and your mouth.

But what about the other months? There are many, many things that can be done with barbecue sauce without ever setting foot outdoors--and plenty of yummy foods that can be whipped up with no trouble at all.

Snacks

Barbecue Smoked Sausage

Cut up two packages of smoked sausage (smoked turkey sausage has an awesome flavor) and place in your slow cooker. Add 1 1/2 cups of barbecue sauce mixed with 1/4 cup water; stir a couple of times to coat; and cook on low for 5-6 hours or high for 3-4. This is a perfect game day or party day snack that doesn't take a lot of effort. It cooks itself while you aren't paying attention--what more can you ask for? This snack also works well with mini hot dogs.

Meatballs

Pick up one bag of frozen meatballs. Cover with one bottle of our Big Bad Bubbas BBQ Sauce (around 1.5 cup size). Cook in slow cooker for 2-2.5 hours. For a twist, wrap your meatballs with bacon first, and cook in the oven on 375 for 12 minutes to make a crispy, perfect snack that's hard to beat.

Meals

Barbecue Salmon

Barbecue probably isn't a flavor that you usually think of when you think of salmon, but it makes a great, familiar-tasting dish that'll get rave reviews from members of the family that don't always appreciate fish (for example, the small, short ones who always have something to say about whatever you've cooked for them). Brush both sides of your salmon pieces with barbecue sauce, then place on a baking sheet. Bake at 425 degrees for around ten to twelve minutes. Your salmon is done when it flakes easily with a fork.

Barbecue Cups

This is one of those "ultimate comfort food" recipes that you love to have in your back pocket for a day when you need something warm and filling in a hurry.

Ingredients:

  1. 1 lb ground beef
  2. 1/2 cup barbecue sauce
  3. salt and pepper (to taste)
  4. 1 cup of cheddar cheese (shredded)
  5. 1 can of biscuits or crescent rolls.

Brown the meat, seasoning with salt and pepper to taste. Cover with 1/2 cup barbecue sauce; mix well to combine. Press each biscuit into a cup of a greased muffin tin. Spoon the beef and barbecue mixture into the cups and sprinkle with cheddar cheese. Bake according to the package directions for the biscuits or crescent rolls, aiming for the end range of the cook time. These will vary according to the package you've chosen. Serve warm.

Be sure to contact us for any questions you might have! All of Deli Direct's products are of the highest quality and will be fantastic in any recipe you choose.
