Sunday, May 8 is Mother’s Day: A day for cards, gifts, pampering and celebration of Mom or that special someone.

And one of the best ways to show your appreciation is to let her relax while Strack & Van Til does the cooking.

Order a fully cooked, heat-and-serve Mother’s Day Brunch or Prime Rib Dinner from the Deli Department and watch mom smile. Be sure to place your orders by May 4 for pick up on May 7.

Brighten up the day with Mother’s Day Brunch. The meal includes rich La Terra Fina Quiche, fresh fruit salad, hearty shredded potato casserole, succulent Kentucky Legend Baked Ham sliced with a pineapple glaze, fluffy King’s Hawaiian sliced sweet bread and Chef Shamy Butter Spread in strawberry or cinnamon honey.

Treat mom to a heavenly Prime Rib Dinner to make her feel extra special. Each dinner includes four 8-ounce slices of tender and juicy prime rib, creamy twice-baked potatoes, tasty Biscayne vegetable blend, King’s Hawaiian sweet dinner rolls, garlic butter and au jus.

Planning a picnic? Our famous fried or grilled chicken is another easy family favorite and perfect for a Mother’s Day outing. While you’re at it, pick up deli fresh salads to enhance your meal. Choose from traditional potato salads such as Our Own Homestyle or Mustard Potato, or specialty potato salads, including Steakhouse or Premium Potato with extra egg and dressing. Other easy crowd-pleaser salads include our Fresh Spinach and Pasta salad with pine nuts and parmesan cheese, Sweet Bowtie Pasta with bacon or Caprese pasta salad loaded with fresh mozzarella.

“Want to create a charcuterie board creation to wow your mom or special someone?” asks Deli Department Director Kristin Snow. “We have a variety of specialty cheeses, salamis, olives, nuts, fruit spreads, honey and the perfect cracker or bruschetta toast in our specialty cheese shops for your Mother’s Day charcuterie board.”

For a delicious complement to a grilled salmon fillet, steak or pork chop made on the grill, try Gouda Smashed Potatoes:


  • 2 tablespoons butter, melted
  • 1½ pounds golden baby potatoes
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt and black pepper, to taste
  • 3½ pounces Castello® Gouda
  • Grated fresh parsley, chopped for garnish


Preheat oven to 450º Fahrenheit and bring a large pot of water to a boil on the stove. Once boiling, add baby golden potatoes and boil for 20 to 25 minutes until fork tender. Strain potatoes and let cool for 5 minutes. Spray a large baking sheet with nonstick cooking spray and evenly spread potatoes across baking sheet. Using the bottom of a cup or any small, flat surface, smash potatoes to about one-third of an inch thick. Combine butter and olive oil in a small dish and brush over smashed potatoes. Bake 25 to 30 minutes, until potatoes are golden and crispy. Remove from oven and preheat broiler. Top potatoes with a heaping tablespoon of grated Castello Gouda Cheese. Return to oven under the broiler until the cheese melts and bubbles. Remove from oven and garnish with fresh parsley. Serve warm.
