Start dying the eggs and filling the baskets, Easter will be here soon, and you’ll want to be ready. Of course, spending time with family and friends is a lot more fun than spending hours in the kitchen, so let Strack & Van Til make your Easter meal “egg-stra special” and “egg-ceptionally” easy.

The Strack & Van Til Deli Department has a selection of Easter meals made easy that will please all of your “peeps”. The meals are fully cooked for your convenience – just heat and serve.

Enjoy the deli’s delicious Easter brunch, which serves four people. It includes a La Terra Fina quiche in your choice of Cheesy Broccoli or Spinach Florentine, a deli fresh fruit salad, Reser’s shredded potato casserole, freshly sliced Kentucky Legend ham with glaze, King’s Hawaiian sliced bread and strawberry or cinnamon honey butter. Priced at $55.99.

The Traditional Spiral-Sliced ham dinner feeds six to eight guests and features an 8-pound Smithfield spiral sliced ham. It also comes with 3 pounds of Our Own green bean casserole, 5 pounds of Our Own mashed potatoes, 2 pounds of homestyle gravy and a dozen King’s Hawaiian rolls – all for just $69.99.

Treat your family to a Prime Rib Dinner with four 8-ounce slices of juicy prime rib, four twice baked potatoes, 1 pound of Biscayne vegetable blend, 8 King’s Hawaiian rolls, au jus and garlic butter. It’s a dinner for four priced at $74.99.

“We also have $15.99 Bakeable ham dinners or single dinners for $7 that include ham and two sides,” notes Deli Department Director Kristin Snow. “If you want an alternative to ham, we have several varieties of heat-and-serve meals prepared daily in our delis. Choose from meatloaf, BBQ rib tips, Polish sausage and kraut and more.”

If you’re preparing your own ham, save time and complement it with heat-and-serve sides including mashed potatoes, green bean casserole, Our Own stuffing, macaroni and cheese and lasagna. Pick up pierogi in a variety of flavors including beef, potato, cheese and cabbage or opt for various types of potato salads, pasta salads, coleslaws or baked beans.

You also can’t go wrong with our time-honored customer favorites. Treat your guests to Our Own Famous Fried or Grilled chicken and rotisserie chickens for a no-hassle, mouthwatering Easter feast.

All deli orders must be placed by Wednesday, April 13 and picked up by Saturday, April 16. For details, ask at the deli counter or visit

To add culinary “egg-citement” to your holiday spread, why not design a charcuterie board? Whether it’s simple or extravagant, all the items you need are available in the Deli Department at your local Strack & Van Til food store.

“Try unique flavor pairings with salamis, thinly sliced prosciuttos and cheeses cut in geometric shapes for eye-catching appeal,” says Snow. “Add fresh fruits, berries or dried fruits, honeys, fruit preserves, cheese spreads, olives, bruschetta, specialty crackers, breads, cheese crisps and nuts, and complement your charcuterie board with festive wines.”

Cheese choices include rich and nutty traditional-aged cheddars in varying sharpness, buttery-textured Manchego cheeses made from sheep’s milk and creamy options such as Gouda, Havarti, Brie and goat cheeses. Gouda and Havarti have a slightly acidic flavor and pair perfectly with grapes, almonds and Riesling wine. Havarti flavors include dill, horseradish and Jalapeño. President’s Brie has an earthy mushroom flavor, and goat cheeses are available in blueberry vanilla, honey and garlic herb.
