Touchdown! On Sunday, February 3 that word will be heard repeatedly in homes across the nation. On that day, the Super Bowl will be played in New Orleans, but if you aren’t planning on making the trek across country, you may be celebrating in the comfort of your own home. If that is the case, score high with any of Major Market Deli’s wealth of food items as you, and your family or friends, watch East versus West as the Baltimore Ravens face off against the San Francisco 49ers.
Kick off your party with various pre-made culinary combos straight from Major Market Deli. Find these items quicker than your team will find the end zone. Lobster salad, tuna salad, and mozzarella sticks abound. Plenty of ham, smoked turkey and salami are ready to eat. Fried chicken and baked chicken are both served steaming hot.
Every Super Bowl party needs chips, guacamole and salsa. Major Market has all three and even creates its own delicious salsa and guacamole. Fallbrook-grown avocados are the base for the guacamole – cilantro and a hint of lime are added. Be sure to take home a lot – it will go quickly!
Add a Southwestern flair to your table with the “Black Bean Salad.” Tossed with beans, corn, hominy, and onions, this fresh dish has a bold flavor.
You’ll want a cooler stocked full of your favorite beverages – and don’t forget the ice. A non-alcoholic drink with unique flavor is Virgil’s Black Cherry Cream Soda. It’s an old-fashioned soda that is micro-brewed with black cherry and vanilla beans. This carbonated beverage tastes like you are drinking dessert.
Executive Chef Mike Oxford explained that “at least 24 hours lead time” is needed for special orders of sandwiches and party platters. The platters can be created with combinations of meat, cheese, seafood and sushi.
Several hors d’oeuvre trays can also be ordered. Sweet and sour meatballs, sausage and pepper bites are available – and for a special treat – Jamaican spiced beef satay. Submarine sandwiches are popular for party crowds and Major Market can make up a foot-long sandwich that feeds 10-15 and a three-foot sandwich which will feed 15-20.
To complete the preparations, Major Market also carries Super Bowl party napkins as well as generic football trays, football-shaped serving bowls and plates with a football design.
So now that you have food, drinks, plates and trays – you’ll be the champion of your party no matter who wins the Super Bowl!
