Our snacks are the perfect addition to any party and offer something nearly everyone will enjoy. Just don't count on having leftovers!

If you would like to order gift baskets or snacks for Father's Day, or for any other occasion, please contact us at Deli Direct. We would be happy to help you find the perfect basket or treat for your needs. Don't see what you want? No worries! Remember, we make each basket and collection to order, so we can include anything you like.

Even though all of the meats from Deli Direct go perfectly fine on their own or between a few slices of bread, there are tons of ways to creatively use deli meats. Casseroles, pasta, or the plain ole' egg can utilize delicious smoked meat. 

Try this:

Ham & Cheese Omelet

Deli Direct's Canadian-style bacon is a perfect choice for this quick and easy recipe. To make this omelet you will need:

2 eggs

Salt, pepper, and any other of your favorite spices. 

2 slices of Canadian-style bacon

1/4 cup cheese

Slice the Canadian-style bacon into cubes and mix all ingredients in a bowl. Using a fork to whip the eggs will result in a more fluffy omelet. Omelets are simple but can also be very frustrating. It's key to get the pan hot enough before pouring the egg mixture in. After two to three seconds, slide your pan back and forth so the egg distributes evenly. Cooking should only take a few more seconds. Once eggs mixture solidifies, slide the omelette into your plate and fold over. Top the omelet with your favorite cheese and enjoy!

Other suggestions:

Our Ragin' Cajun summer sausage would go great with a grilled bell pepper or fried rice. 

Baked asparagus wrapped in our gourmet hard salami serves as an excellent snack for parties or as an appetizer. 

Super Bowl 50 is just around the corner, Deli Direct has a supreme assortment of sausages, cheeses, deli meats, party dips and much more. Contact us to place your order and experience sausage the way it's meant to be!

What's your favorite deli meat recipe? 

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.

Watches, baubles, neck ties, widgets and beads are nice but we can only use so many of them. So after a while, they’re no fun to give or receive. Thankfully, there are still products out there that feed the soul. Cheese and sausage gift baskets are among them. They have the ability to transform Scrooges into giddy children and casual acquaintances into good friends. But that’s providing the cheese and sausage gift baskets have what it takes to delight recipients’ taste buds.

Carnivores Rejoice!

For unabashed carnivores, there is nothing better than a sturdy basket full of premium meats. So we’ve designed our Sausage Champion baskets with them in mind. Each offering boasts a full eight pounds of high quality proteins divided up into a myriad of well seasoned options, including Cajun sausages. And those savory, delicious sausages are not alone. They’re joined by gourmet condiments, crackers, mints and a shiny, sharp cleaver. Thus, it’s a true sausage rush for the pork and beef faithful.

Viva Variety!

For those who live by the creed “the more the better”, Gourmet Deli Classic Treasures baskets are unequivocally the perfect fit. They have two pounds less meat than the sausage gift baskets but feature a number of other, hunger satisfying additions. There is pumpkin butter, pickles, pirouline cookies, assorted condiments and wasabi peas. Recipients will also find dips, olives, chocolates, crackers, pickled beans and close to 50 ounces of cheese in each basket.

Now that’s just scratching the waxy top of the cheese wheel my friends! There are indubitably more cheese and sausage gift baskets to choose from. Plus, we can work with customers to build custom baskets for the most cantankerous, persnickety people they know.  To learn more and find the perfect cheese and sausage gift baskets, please contact us today.

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.

No matter their age, they are still our babies and we worry about them when they enter college. We wonder, “Will they make friends?” and “Are they eating enough?” Now there is a way to ensure that they’re doing both. It starts with choosing cheese and sausage gift baskets. Traditionally filled with enough food for more than one, they make excellent going away presents. This is especially true for college kids that plan on rooming with strangers.

Go Back to Cool and Classic

Let’s take our Gourmet Deli Classic Treasures basket as an example. It holds six pounds of meat and more than two pounds of cheese. Plus, there are additional items included, like cookies, chocolates, condiments and wasabi peas. So there is enough gourmet, snack food for our babies and the people who will hopefully become their new friends.

Furthermore, the kids can use the accompanying wicker basket, cutting board and cleaver in their dorm room or off campus apartment for other things. For instance, they may want to toss their keys, mail, student IDs or notes in the basket after all of the cheese and sausage is gone.

As for the cleaver and cutting board, it’s perfect for divvying up other snacks or a quick meal. The kids can clean them up afterwards and tuck them inside of their desks, night stands or allotted bookshelf space. Of course they could put them in the wicker basket too.

Variety without the Cutting Edge

Don’t want to give them a cleaver for the dorm? No worries there. We’ve got cheese and sausage gift baskets that are devoid of sharp-edged cutlery. One that tends to perfect for kids is the Special Variety Pack. It still has enough meats and cheeses for a small gathering of students as well as a cutting board. However, knives and cleavers are not included.

To find the perfect sausage and cheese gift baskets for your big babies, please contact us.

It never fails. The temperature zooms to over one hundred, and you have to make supper for the family. The air conditioning unit can only handle so much and it’s too hot for you to handle much more! It’s time to decide whether to call out for pizza and wings or think of something a little cooler. Then your eye falls on your Deli Direct Deli Classic meat and cheese gift basket. Walking to the fridge, you open it to see how you can combine its contents with the goodies in the gift basket. Grab some skewers, something to use for marinade (we suggest olive oil or Italian salad dressing) and all the fresh veggies you've got. Have we got some cool ideas for you (pun intended)!

Caesar Surfer

For this recipe, you’ll need:

  • Romaine lettuce with leaves separated
  • Diced tomatoes, cucumber and stuffed olives from your Deli Classic gift basket
  • Diced meats and cheeses

Combine all ingredients and drizzle with classic Caesar salad dressing. Finally finish off with Gourmet Chocolates from your Deli Classic gift basket!

Skewer Fun

Ingredients:

Thread the ingredients onto the skewer. Fold the spinach leaves until they’re the size of the other ingredients. Marinate in a Pyrex dish using the olive oil and a little basil or Italian salad dressing for two to three hours.

Of course, you can always just chunk everything in the fridge into a gigantuous bowl and make a rocking salad. A different meal idea would include flour tortillas, your choice of Deli Direct cheese spreads, a little lettuce, a few chunks of summer sausage, diced tomatoes and strips of red onion for a new twist on a wrap. However you choose to beat the heat, we have the best quality meats, cheeses, pickles, olives, spreads and sweets. Just contact us when the heat is too much for you to stay in the kitchen.

Moms are accustomed to getting certain gifts on Mother’s Day. There are the perfunctory poises, perfumes, macaroni necklaces and flowery hats. They’re great but what about moms who don’t fit the traditional mold and those that may want a change from the ordinary? For them, we’d suggest buying meat and cheese gift baskets. They’re a great way to say “I Love You”, especially to moms who appreciate having gourmet snacks on hand during their moments of alone time. We’ve got several themed baskets to choose from, including the following:

Lucky Mom Gift Basket

Our Lucky Mom Gift Basket is jam-packed with candies, cookies, crackers, dips, meats and cheese spreads. So, you’ll definitely have all of the basics covered. And for an extra touch, tell mom that you’ll whip up a special snack for her using some of the items included in the basic. Take a bag of pita chips and spread them out on to a baking dish. Then slice and dice our Deli Direct Smoked Ham Roll into pieces. Cover the pita chips with one of the cheese spreads included in the basket and top them with the diced ham. Next, heat it up in the oven for a few minutes. Once the cheese is nice and warm, put the loaded pita chips on to a plate and present them to mom. Presto! An instant Favorite Kid Award is likely on the way.

Happy Mom Gift Basket

If your mom could use a great cutting board and cleaver, buy our Happy Mom Gift Basket instead. It includes those two things along with white chocolate mint buttons, assorted dips, cheese spreads, crackers, cookie snaps, honey glaze and summer sausages. While you’re at it, use the cheese spreads, summer sausages and Bisquick™ to make mom some freshly baked sausage balls. Then serve them with a few of the dips that came with the gift basket. A Spice Above Tuscan Tomato Basil Dip should complement the baked sausage and cheese balls perfectly.
