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!

What do you do with a man who has more than enough cologne and neckties? Should you get him fancy cufflinks that he’ll probably never wear or a smoking jacket that will most likely never make it off of the bathroom hook? Nah, why not take a page out of grandma’s book of proverbs instead? She always said that the way to win a fella’s heart was with something tasty.

If an apron is the last thing you want to put on, don’t worry. Meat and cheese gift baskets can come to the rescue! They’ll give any man a tasty treat he’ll long remember and you won’t have to get your hands or clothes dirty in the process. Simply look, point and click on the perfect meat and cheese gift basket for Mr. Wonderful. Then wait for it to be delivered and hand it over to him with a smile. Shazam! Your gift giving problem solved.

And what if your man isn’t a fan of meat and cheese gift baskets? Hey, it happens from time to time because not every guy on the planet is a carnivore. For the vegans and vegetarians among us, we’d suggest creating custom baskets overflowing with martini olives, fruits, hot sauce, horseradish and Chubby Cheeks. Oh, and we can’t forget about the wasabi peas, party dips, sweet heat salsa and any number of other deli goodies.

What’s that you say? What about those new boyfriends, coworkers and others who may feel funny about receiving gigantic baskets of treats from the ladies in their lives?  Well, you could scale back and make stocking stuffer size gifts out of treats like garam marsala stoneground mustard and beef sticks. They just big enough to say, “Hey, I’m thinking about you”, without making them worry that you’re ready to sit down and plan a wedding.

To learn more about sending any size deli gift to the men in your life, please contact us today. It may be possible to have it shipped to their homes in time for Valentine’s Day.

A New Year's Eve party isn't complete without exciting food to munch on. Here are three ideas for tasty treats and party dips for your late-night shindig.

Vegetable Tray - A vegetable tray is a party classic. It is perfect for those watching their weight or who have allergies. Make the tray visually appealing by arranging the vegetables in a design or pattern. Another way to spice up your tray is with a dip. Forget your boring, normal dip and try our Hearty Cheddar Bacon Dip or our Gringo Guacamole Dip. You'll love the fun flavors and exciting combinations.

Brownie Bites - When it comes to a party, finger foods are the best. This is true even in deserts. Brownie bites are a great option. You get the brownie that everyone loves, but in a convenient finger food. They also go great with different desert dips. Brownies pair well with our White Chocolate Raspberry Dip and our Sea Salt Caramel Dip.

Graham Crackers - For those who like deserts that are a little less sweet, graham crackers are a perfect choice. They are delicious and crunchy, but also pair well with other items. The Sinfully Cin-a-Bun Dip gives the graham crackers a classic cinnamon twist, while the Heaven Sake Cheesecake Dip makes a lovely graham cracker treat.

Whether you are expecting a house full of people or a quiet night with a few friends, These foods are a great addition to any party.

Feel free to contact us with any questions you have.

Okay, so let's be real, who doesn't love cheese? The taste, the color, the way it melts perfectly. Cheese is definitely a favorite of many food loving citizens in the world. That is why we endlessly try to find ways to incorporate the delicious delicacy that cheese is into any meal we can possibly imagine. Macaroni and cheese, cheese toast, cheese sticks, nacho cheese sauce; adding cheese just makes any food better. I mean, maybe even cheese on cheese would be worth trying.

One way that is terrific for incorporating a variety of cheeses into one gathering, without making it look like you are a cheese obsessed maniac, is to have several different types of cheese spreads. There are so many options available in terms of cheese that is in spreadable form. Perhaps you could try Asiago Cheese Spread, Blue Cheese Spread, Cheddar Cheese Spread, or pretty much any variety of cheese spread you can think of. Having these spreads coupled with various types of bread and crackers at your gathering gives the illusion that you just love the idea of having simple finger foods for your guests to enjoy. All the while you get to bask in the deliciousness of an unending variety of cheese. That seems like a win-win!

So go ahead, get some cheese spreads, line the party table with 5 - 10 different kinds and watch your guests enjoy the brunch, potluck, birthday party, or other occasion. They're sure to be a hit!

If you would like to place an order for a cheese spread for yourself, be sure to contact us 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.

Although you might have gifted plenty of meat and cheese gift baskets in the past, you might have never thought about purchasing them for yourself. However, it's a good idea to buy a few nice gift baskets from Deli Direct and keep them on hand during the upcoming holiday season. These are a few reasons why you won't regret it if you do.

Be Prepared for Impromptu Guests

First of all, the holiday season is always a season of visiting and spending time with loved ones. This means that you might find yourself throwing together an impromptu get-together, or you might find friends or family members knocking on your door when you least expect it. Although you might like being able to offer your guests a nice snack when they come over, you probably aren't always prepared to do so.

If you have a meat and cheese gift basket on hand, however, you can open it up and put the offerings on a nice plate or platter. Since these gift baskets often come with nice cheese, sliced meat, crackers and more, you will have everything you need to offer your guests something tasty.

Always Have a Potential Gift on Hand

You never know when you might be invited to an unexpected party or when you might need an extra gift for someone on your list. Since meat and cheese gift baskets make great gifts for just about anyone, it's a good idea to keep a few on hand, just in case.

As you can see, it's always smart to keep a few of these nice gift baskets on hand during the winter months. If you contact us at Deli Direct, we can help you choose the right gift baskets for your needs.

With Oktoberfest here, we couldn’t resist talking about summer sausage. European in origin, it captured Wisconsin residents’ hearts during the German migration. Many people settled in the Badger State during that time and shared their sausage recipes with others. Of course they also brought that other great staple with them, beer.

Summer Sausage and Beer Please!

So, if you are going to serve a summer sausage on an October afternoon, choose a German beer to match. Smoky, spiced varieties tend to pair well with strong stouts and amber lagers. And let’s not forget the Braunschweiger liverwurst. It generally stands up well to a robust brew too. Light sausages, on the other hand, are probably best served with one of Germany’s pale ales.

Round Out Those Snack Platters

We know that quite a few Germans will also be slicing up cheese to go with those summer sausages. After all, many of those early immigrants went on to start their own dairy farms and sell cheeses to their neighbors. Plus, Germans have always loved cheese. Bearing that in mind, our cheese wheels, spreads and blocks would really compliment a Oktoberfest meal. The same is true for our dipping pretzels, pretzel dips, limited edition steins, horseradish products and pickles. They’ll round out snack platters and bar setups perfectly.

Go for a Meaty, Main Meal

If a main meal is on your mind, summer sausage is still sure to please. Combine it with drunken potatoes, German casseroles, meat pies, European beer breads, hot slaws and other cherished dishes. A few that will taste fabulous are sauerkraut, pierogis, fruited cabbage, beer-battered veggies and currywurst sandwiches.

To find all the German deli essentials you need to usher in Oktoberfest 2015, please contact Deli Direct and place your order today. We'll ship the summer sausages and other items directly to you right away.

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.

Don’t banish the barbecue grill to the shed just yet. Summer may be officially over but that’s no reason to put down the horseradish products and grill aprons. There are still warm afternoons on the horizon and there’s always the trusty stove nearby waiting to pick up the slack. And as for us, we’ve got some cool recipes guaranteed to keep you chillin’:

1.) Marmalade and Horseradish Products

Do you want a sweet sauce with a lot of heat? Try blending equal parts of your favorite marmalade with one of our horseradish products. If the marmalade isn’t sweet enough, add a little more sweetener. Generally, honey, powdered, brown or granulated sugar will do. When you’ve got the perfect blend of sweet and heat, go ahead and use it as a dipping or basting sauce. It goes great with grilled pork, seafood and chicken.

2.) Pie Filling and Horseradish Sauce

Do you love the taste of lemon pie filling? Okay, what about other pie fillings like cherry and apple? Believe it or not, they mix well with horseradish products too. Scrape one cup of your favorite pie filling into a food processor, mixer or blender. Then add the following:

To give it a smooth consistency, add virgin olive or canola oil at the end. A cup of oil or less should take care of it. Afterward, use the modified pie filling as a glaze, dipping or cocktail sauce. It works well with meats and various desserts (e.g. tart fillings).

3.) Salad Dressing and Horseradish Products

Finally, try blending horseradish products with your favorite salad dressings and some honey. It is a great substitute for barbecue sauce. Plus, it works with late season veggies, deviled eggs and salad greens too. The list of good dressings to consider includes, but shouldn’t be limited to French, blue cheese and Italian.
