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.

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.
