There's nothing more fun than getting together with friends to root for your favorite football team on a cool Sunday evening! You can enjoy hamburgers, hot dogs, pizza and many other great game time delicacies, but don't forget to provide meat and cheese gift baskets! As you root on for your team, or the best commercial, these baskets are great to use for snacks at your Super Bowl party. There are many different basket options available for your party planning needs so take a gander and stock on up!

Pick up an actual football themed gift sets that includes a football-shaped tray that you can easily use to display your food (though your friends will think you spent hours preparing). These are a lot of fun, and you can reuse the trays for future football parties. Other party-themed gift baskets are great as well because they include a variety of meats, cheeses and other foods so that you can find something to match everyone's different tastes!

Along with meat and cheese baskets, you could also grab a Hot Sauce Connoisseur basket to add some zest to your main dishes. Everyone can make their own unique burger by choosing the hot sauce that they like most. Your friends will be raving on the delicious food you prepared! A fruit basket could be a nice addition to your Super Bowl party as well. That would be a great way to mix it up a bit and to add a little healthy food to a menu that focuses on delicious foods that are high in fat and carbohydrates.

All of these basket ideas will make you the hit of the Super Bowl no matter the outcome! Everyone will appreciate the thought that you put into choosing the perfect food for your party. If you would like help choosing the perfect gift basket, please contact us.

Many of the events we share and remember involve food! Get-togethers such as football games or even a big family dinner are obvious events, but cheese gift baskets can add the finishing touch to any occasion. Whether you order one for your own party or give it as a host or hostess gift, a nice selection of delicious cheeses is always a welcome treat!

Do you tailgate? Well maybe not in this current weather, but if you can withstand the cold go for it! Perhaps you prefer to watch the game from the comfort of home, surrounded by good friends and good food. What a great way to relax and enjoy a Sunday afternoon. If it’s your friend’s turn to host, surprise him or her with one of our football themed cheese gift baskets.

If you invite guests for the big game, it’s always nice to offer something to nibble on while waiting for the main event. The tempting aroma of the main course and all those other delicious dishes makes people hungry. We can help you whip up some quick game day snacks.

If you have someone special in mind, or plan to celebrate a different special occasion, consider making up your own cheese gift baskets with an assortment of Wisconsin specialty cheeses. With offerings such as ranch cheddar, onion and garlic, and sun dried tomato and basil, there’s no limit to how creative you can get!

You can also try some exciting recipes to give your party even more pizzazz. Cheese goes with everything, and there are lots of interesting ways to serve it. Get inventive!

Here is a simple yet delicious concoction that your guests will love:

Top slices of cocktail bread with shaved roast beef or ham. Shred horseradish cheese over the top. Finish it off with a thin slice of tomato. Broil until the cheese begins to melt. Serve warm. This makes an absolutely mouthwatering appetizer for any occasion!

*For hardier snacks, use sliced French bread instead of cocktail bread and beef up the toppings.

We are always happy to help you select the perfect item, so please feel free to contact us any time.
