Ham and Cheese Masterpiece Basket

If your dad is the ham in your life, the Ham and Cheese Masterpiece Basket is just the gift for him. Ham, cheddar, crackers, pickles, cookies, chocolates, and more fill this basket to the brim with goodness. With so many treats inside, this gift collection is sure to last your pop for quite some time, giving him lots of opportunities to feel the love.

For a tasty treat, cut the included ham into thin slices, place on a cookie sheet, brush with honey mustard glaze, put a thin slice of cheddar on each piece of ham, and place the cookie sheet in the oven at 375 degrees. Let the slices cook until the cheese melts and the glaze begins to bubble. Remove from oven and serve on Hawaiian sweet rolls.

Some Like It Hot Basket

For those dads who enjoy the spicier side of life, the Some Like It Hot Basket is sure to hit the spot. This collection contains a wide variety of spicy morsels that will perk anyone up. Spicy summer sausage and hot dips, spreads, and sauces are the fillings for this intense basket.

Help your dad start his special day the spicy way by making a spicy sausage egg melt. First, brown several thin slices of spicy summer sausage. After browning the sausage, cook up a batch of scrambled eggs. Add the sausage to the eggs, top with cheddar or pepper jack cheese, and serve with salsa.

Cheese Lover's Basket

Vegetarians will be more likely to appreciate our Cheese Lover's Basket. This basket does not contain meat, but it does include an assortment of delicious cheeses and cheese spreads. It also includes crackers, a cheese spreader, and a knife so your old man can enjoy his gift right away.

Create an amazing macaroni and cheese dish, using the assortment of delicious cheeses included in this basket!

Sausage Champion Basket

On the opposite end of the spectrum, the Sausage Champion Basket is the go-to gift for meat lovers. It contains ham, pepperoni, and two kinds of sausage. All of this is presented alongside crackers, mustard, and a knife to make it the perfect, filling lunch to go.

Use the incredible combo of meats included in this basket to make a meat lover's pizza that is to die for.

This is a huge sampler and includes sausage, ham, cheese, various dips, chocolates, and much more. You can't go wrong with this enormous basket, as it is sure to contain something to please anyone.

Whichever basket you decide to get, your dad is sure to be thrilled and may even start munching right away. If you’re lucky, he may even share some of the contents of his basket with the whole family.

In order to make your gift even more special, we have some fun, easy recipes for your dad to try. Check out these great Father's Day party dip ideas. When you choose which dip mixes your dad will love, you can include copies of these recipes, and others you think he'll enjoy, with his gift.

Spice Up Your Dad's Life!

Does your dad love spicy food? Our Beat the Heat Habanero Mix is our hottest dip yet! Add it to chili or taco meat as the seasoning, sprinkle it on steak, or mix it with ground beef to give burgers some extra heat.

Another great way to use this seasoning is to make it into a dip for raw vegetables, chips, bread, or crackers. For something a little less spicy choose our Jumpin' Hot Jalapeno Mix, which is one notch below Beat the Heat. Here's a tasty recipe to try:

Spicy Roasted Red Pepper Cream Cheese Dip

  • 1 jar roasted red peppers, drained
  • 1 package Beat the Heat Habanero Mix or Jumpin' Hot Jalapeno Mix
  • 1 8 oz. package cream cheese, softened

Mix all ingredients in a blender or food processor until smooth.

Serve with an assortment of bread, crackers, raw veggies, or tortilla chips.

Note: Those who are sensitive to dairy products can make this dip with soft goat cheese.

Holy Guacamole!

Guacamole is a wonderful way to get some healthy fats into your diet. Our Gringo Guacamole Dip Mix makes some seriously tasty guacamole. It can be mixed up per the package directions, or you can try this delicious recipe:

Gringo Guacamole

2 ripe avocado, mashed

2 tsp lemon or lime juice

1 package Gringo Guacamole - A Spice Above Dip Mix

1 cup sour cream or Greek yogurt

1 medium tomato, chopped

Mash avocado. Add lemon or lime juice and mix. Stir in Gringo Guacamole seasoning, sour cream or Greek yogurt, and chopped tomato. Chill 1-2 hours and serve with tortilla chips, raw veggies, or as a topping for nachos or tacos. You can even use this amazing guacamole in a 7-layer Mexican dip!

Note: Those who are sensitive to dairy can make this guacamole with goat yogurt.

Stuffed Artichokes

If your dad loves artichoke spinach dip, he'll love our Stuffed Artichoke Dip. It's our #1 best seller! Just mix with 1 cup mayonnaise and 1 cup sour cream and chill. A great way to serve this dip is with warm Hawaiian bread or slices of a French Baguette.

Dessert, Dessert!

Who can forget dessert? Chocolate lovers will rave over this easy to make Chocolate Lover's Dream Pie. The directions on the package explain the simple filling that includes cream cheese and whipped topping. You and your dad can either buy a crust or make your own.

Making a pie crust for a recipe like this is a lot of fun, and kids will have a blast mashing up the graham crackers or whatever is used to make the crust. To mash up graham crackers, put them in a Ziploc bag and roll over them with a rolling pin or a jar of pasta sauce until they turn into crumbs.

If you'd like to add more chocolate to your pie, this recipe for an Oreo Cookie Pie Crust only contains 2 ingredients and goes together in a snap.

Other pie flavors your dad may enjoy making include Sea Salt Caramel Delight Pie, Sinfully Cin-a-Bun Pie, and White Chocolate Raspberry Swirl Pie, as well as many others. Each of these mixes can also be made into dips and served with fruit, cookies, graham crackers, or biscotti.

At Deli Direct, we have a large assortment of party dip ideas for your Father's Day gifts. All of our savory mixes are free of msg, preservatives, sugar, and gluten. We also carry many other items that any chef would love. Contact us today to find out how we can help you choose a great Father's Day gift!

 

Moo-ve over Father’s Day and High School graduations, there is another holiday taking place this month that’s tailor-made for cheesy celebrations. Yes, we’re talking about National Dairy Month and we’ve got the cheese gift baskets that are sure to please every dairy fan on your list. Since we’re sure that many of you plan on making a lot of noise and inviting every Wisconsin Cheddar Head within a 50 mile radius to your National Dairy Month shindig, let’s talk about our Incredible Party Favorites first:

Incredible Party Favorites Gift Basket

Our Incredible Party Favorites gift basket will leave your loved ones in 7th Heaven because it contains seven different cheeses. Plus, we’ve tossed in gourmet crackers, two dip seasonings, beef summer sausage, Perky Pickles and honey mustard glaze. Oh, and there’s a handy-dandy cleaver included in the gift basket too. So you guests can don their wedge hats and cut their favorite cheeses with wild abandon.

For Cheese Lovers Only Basket

Are you worried that there won’t be enough Cheddar N’ Salami Block or Toasted Onion Cheese Spread to go around? Never fear dairy darlings! Our For Cheese Lovers Only gift basket will help ensure that the only thing blue at your party is the dip. You get to choose two cheese blocks and a pair of cheese spreads. In addition, the basket includes another Wisconsin cheddar block, variety cheese wheel, gourmet crackers, Danish butter cookies, gourmet chocolates and other party essentials.

Rat Pack Cheese Gift Basket

Okay, so maybe Ol’ Blue Eyes didn’t appreciate milk as much as he should have but that doesn’t mean you need to follow in his black leather, elevator shoes. Our Rat Pack gift basket will clearly fly Sinatra fans to and then over the moon. So, send them one during National Dairy Month. We’re sure that they’ll love the gourmet cheese spreads, crackers and stylish cheese spreader. And just like Frank, you can have the basket your way by selecting three types of cheese from our great, Deli Direct collection. To learn more and get the National Dairy Month party started, please contact us today!

Worst

A Tie

Seriously? Even if Dad wears a tie to work every day, that doesn’t mean he wants to be reminded of that fact all the time. Giving your dad a tie on Father’s Day is like giving your best friend a candle or a pack of gum. It says, “I just don’t know you that well,” or, “I didn’t put any thought into this.” You’d be better off with just a card than another piece of neck silk, even if it has a really nice pattern.

Useless Office Knickknacks

Why is work the go-to genre for gifts for men? In case you’re wondering, I’ll spell it out for you: Dad doesn’t want another picture frame, paperweight, paperclip dispenser, or novelty coin bank. His cubicle has enough going on without a statue of Calvin peeing on something. Put it back on the store shelf and walk away. Your dad will thank you.

A Handmade Craft— From an Adult Child

Unless you’re a world-class knitter and your dad loves hats, there’s not a lot of wiggle room on this one. Beyond about age 10 it’s pretty lame for Dad to receive a painted set of hand prints, even if it does make a butterfly. And a lot of the stuff you might be tempted to make will likely fall under the “Useless Office Knickknacks” category. If you’re truly a master carpenter and you can build something outstanding, go for it. Otherwise, pass on hand-making your Dad’s gift.

Best

Meat

I don’t know how else to say it—men love meat. What father wouldn’t be thrilled to receive New York strip steak, center cut pork chops, or cheddar and jalapeno smoked bratwurst? Giving the gift of fine grilling meats gives dad the chance to do two of the things he loves most- grill, and then eat.

Barbeque Sauce

I saw something online the other day that screamed “Dad” to me: a father's day bbq gift basket. Whoever thought of this is a genius (wink wink). It comes with a bunch of different sauces, including spicy, zesty and horseradish varieties. I don’t know about your dad, but my dad is a connoisseur of sauces, and he would flip his lid to get a father's day bbq gift basket rather than another box of golf tees.

Beer

Nothing says “I love you and accept you for who you are” like a beer ice bucket full of Dad’s favorite snacks. Your mom may roll her eyes or “tisk tisk” him and his snacking habits, but you can show him your unconditional love in a way he’s sure to understand: through food! Pick up a Budweiser or Rolling Rock beer bucket, fill it with cold ones or snacks, and watch a smile light up his face.
