Summer is nearly half over, and before we know it, the kids will be heading back to school.  Of course, we all realize how busy things are during the school year, but with three boys that are busy most of the summer finishing up spring sports, and then starting fall sports, our summers don’t really slow down that much.  I am always looking for a quick, easy, and healthy snack (or meal) that I can make for the kids.  So I was pretty excited to be able to pick up several varieties of Eckrich Deli Meat at Walmart on my last trip.

Not only is Eckrich Deli Meat a trusted brand, since 1894, but the deli meats have great flavor and my favorite part they are very affordable!  Each of the deli meats that we chose were less than $4.00 per pound!  While there were several varieties to choose from, the boys decided to get:

  • Eckrich Ham Off the Bone
  • Eckrich Pickle & Pimento Loaf
  • Eckrich Hard Salami

Hors D’oeuvre: Salami, Horseradish Cheese, and Sweet Oatmeal Crackers

Salami & Horseradish cheese

It’s that time of year again. Christmas is only a couple weeks away and the New Year is coming soon. Undoubtedly, you have been invited to several holiday parties; between family gatherings, work parties, neighborhood events, and your best friend’s annual Christmas party, your calendar is probably booked solid for the next few weeks.

It seems if you attend enough holiday parties, you start to notice a trend with the appetizers. First of all, there is a cheeseball at every party. EVERY PARTY. Nothing wrong with cheeseballs. In fact, they are pretty good, but it seems that around Christmas is the only time of year that you see them at parties. There are also the stand-by veggie and fruit trays, maybe even some sweet & sour meatballs and cocktail wieners– if you’re lucky. All of these things are great, but sometimes, you just want something different.

So here is an interesting spin on a traditional meat and cheese tray: dry salami bites & small wedges of horseradish cheese, served with sweet oatmeal crackers. The tang of the salami goes so well with the slightly hot horseradish cheese and is well-rounded out with a sweet oatmeal cracker. I arranged them on one tray in sections, but could be just as good stacking the salami and cheese on individual crackers. This is kind of a nice change of pace on its own, but it would work well served along with hummus.

Most grocery stores have a large cheese section and also have several gourmet-style crackers there as well. Get creative and pick some different cheeses. If you don’t know what something will taste like, ask for a sample.

Remember, if you are going to several holiday parties, you may want to buy a larger block of cheese that can be used for more than one event (**Money Savvy Tip: typically, the larger blocks of cheese are less expensive, if pre-packaged)
