The same charcuterie master that makes my Bratwurst also makes these meatballs.

The texture, flavor and seasoning is close to perfect. You can handle them like regular meatballs and serve

them in a high quality tomato sauce. I like them heated in the oven ( from thawed- 15 min at 400f) cut in half

and served with Tzatziki sauce. You can serve them as an HVR as well. At the end of the day their delicious

plain right out of the oven. Like many of my specialty items- this is an artisan product.

Ingredients: Chicken Breast, Chicken Thighs, Spinach, Feta Cheese, Onion, Garlic, Blended Oil, Bread

Crumbs, Salt/Pepper

5 packs of 6 for a total of 30

Polish Potato Pancakes

/ $79.00 per case

So these are my new Potato Pancakes. These are large and soft- the texture you would associate with a regular

pancake. Because they are soft- they can be heated in the micro which makes them super convenient.

Just heat from frozen in micro for 30 sec intervals- flipping them with each interval until hot.

I think they’ll go with just about anything and definitely a great side dish for any holiday table.

There are 4 packs of 5 for a total of 20 in a box.

Bratwurst

/ $98.00 per case

I searched far and wide for a superb Bratwurst and gained 10 pounds in the process😬

I grew up on all things WURST and Bratwurst is my favorite. These are the best I’ve ever

tasted. Besides the flavor – the texture and size (6 oz) add to their superlative quality.

These Bratwurst are full cooked which makes them easy to handle. Simply brown in a pan or

on the grill and heat thru. I like sauteed onions with them but that’s optional. A good

mustard and my potato pancakes and you’ve got a mini Octoberfest. I pack them in units of 2

and 6 packs per box

Mini Shrimp Cakes

/ $104.00 per case

I love these little bundles of Shrimp. They are easy to prepare and delicious. You don’t need a sauce as the filling is saucy enough.

They can be used as hors d’oeuvres, appetizers or just special treats in general. Simply pop into a 400f oven (frozen) for 19 minutes and

serve. Their also easy for your guests to handle:)?‍??

Mini Maryland Crab Cakes

/ $104.00 per case


These moist Crab Puffs are a real treat and super easy to serve. Their made by my Crab Guy who specializes in all things Crabmeat. Their packed in 3 bags (12 each) for a total of 36 in a box. Right from the freezer onto a sheet pan- into a 400f oven for 19 minutes and their ready to serve. You can serve a sauce with them but their super moist so it’s not really necessary.

This is one of my all time favorite hors d’oeuvres/ appetizers/ side dishes. This item will be a huge hit anytime of year but especially during the holidays. Just imagine- you’ve brought out the Turkey and all the side dishes and then you present a platter of these pancakes topped with the apples. Watch the happy faces.:)

I’ve worked hard so you don’t have to. Just lay the pancakes (frozen) on to a sheet pan and pop into a 400f oven for 10 min and then flip for 10 min more. The apples are best thawed in the container and gently heated in microwave in 30 second intervals. Serve as pictured:)

Two bags of potato pancakes (16 each) and two pints of

apples (16 each).

Wild Boar Sausage

Gratin Dauphinois Potatoes

/ $79.00 per case

This is one of the great French potato preparations. As with all my specialty products I spare no expense to prepare the highest quality product possible. To be sure this is not a diet potato in fact it’s a bit decadent but oh so delicious. I use heavy cream, whole milk, fresh thyme, fresh rosemary, shallots, garlic and a lot of Asiago, Fontina, Parmesan, and Provolone cheeses. 

Cooking instructions- Take them directly from the freezer and put in micro for 2 minutes. Then with a fork just pop out the block of potatoes (they come right out) and place on a cookie sheet. Bake uncovered for 45 minutes in a preheated 350°f oven and serve.

I’m not gonna lie- you can simply take from the freezer- loosen the top so steam can escape if necessary and microwave for 6-8 minutes. You just want to make the potatoes hot and each micro is different so use common sense.:)

I like to bake them but you might like the micro version better. Your call!

INGREDIENTS

Idaho Potatoes, Heavy Cream, Whole Milk, Whole Butter, Provolone, Parmesan, Asiago, Fontina, Fresh Garlic, Fresh Shallots, Fresh Thyme, Fresh Rosemary, Red Pepper Flakes, Kosher Salt, and Black Pepper

As a Chef and a hard core foodie I’ve always considered this to be my favorite potato preparation. It can be served in the most elegant dinning setting or as the perfect breakfast potato. It’s an addictive potato- much like potato chips. It’s also Gluten Free- bonus!:)

I use 3 large Idaho Potatoes to make each tart and each tart serves 4-6 people depending on the appetites involved.

Here’s how you handle this magnificent potato. You need a 10 inch non stick fry pan. You can use a larger 12 inch pan but not smaller than 10. Preheat you oven to 400°f and then put the non stick pan in the oven to preheat for 7 minutes. Take my Potatoe Tart right from the freezer and remove all packaging. Add aprox 2tbsp of butter to preheated pan and lay the frozen tart therein (upside down). Let bake 10 min and then flip for 10 min more. Remove tart from pan and place on cutting board and cut into 8 wedges as if cutting a pie or cake. It’s best served immediately out of the oven so time your meal accordingly.

It might seem like a lot of effort to reconstitute my Potato Tart but it’s well worth it. Please resist the temptation to heat in microwave as the qualitative difference is immeasurable. Also- once you’ve navigated this procedure a few times it’s actually pretty simple and you’ll enjoy using this magnificent side dish over and over.

INGREDIENTS

Idaho Potatoes, Whole Butter, Canola Oil, Virgin Olive Oil, Kosher Salt, and Black Pepper

Gourmet Mac & Cheese

/ $79.00 per case

I use nothing but the best cheese within my gourmet Mac & Cheese including Pecorino Romano, Fontina, and Parmigiano Reggiano.This is a serious Mac+Cheese product.

Just take from the freezer and put in micro for 2 minutes. Then pop the block out with a fork and place on a cookie sheet and bake uncovered at 350°f for 50 min for best results.

INGREDIENTS

Mezzi Rigatoni, Whole Milk, Monterey Jack, Sharp Cheddar, Fontina, Pecorino Romano, Parmigiano Reggiano, Panko Crumbs, Whole Butter, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Flour, Kosher Salt, and Black Pepper

Veal Sweetbreads

/ $149.00 per case

Sweetbreads are a delicacy in French cooking. They are the thymus gland of the Calf. I realize this doesn’t sound appetizing but they truly are delicious in the hands of a capable Chef. I’d be happy to give a demonstration to prove my point.

Calves Brains

/ $129.00 per case

This is a delicacy in France. So much so that if I’m in a French Restaurant and Calves Brains are on the menu I’m ordering it with no hesitation. I would be glad to show you the preparation if your interested.

Hi everybody- so I’ve been working on a different version of my Escargot going into the high 2018 holiday season.

Here are the
VOL-AU-VENT D’ ESCARGOT BOURGUIGNONNE

This of course is based on a french classic. I’ve made miniature/bite size pastry baskets- filled them with an Escargot and then topped them off with my garlic/parsley butter.

All you have to do is take them from the freezer (carefully remove the packaging) and put them on a cookie sheet.
First cover the cookie sheet with a piece of parchment paper which I provide to prevent sticking and then simply put in a 275f oven for 20 min and serve.

I get that Escargot is not every bodies cup of tea but for those that love them
(and you know who you are) this version will be a hit.

Maybe you have a friend or relative that loves Escargot-
I’ll sell you a few (3,6,9) for that special person. A full box is 2 bags of 15 for a total of 30.

Easy and delicious- that’s how we roll at Chef Michaels :)?‍?

INGREDIENTS

Escargot, Puff Pastry, Onions, Fresh Garlic, Fresh Parsely, Fresh Thyme, Fresh Rosemary, Whole Butter, Eggs, Flour, Fresh Lemon Juice, Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Red Pepper Flakes, Kosher Salt, Black Pepper

This Brie makes a great appetizer or an elegant side on your holiday dinner table. I’m really proud of this creation. I’ve been working on this for a few years now and my new (more traditional) round presentation is definitely the way to go. It’s an 8oz Baby Brie with a delicious soft rind. The Fig/Walnut jam provides a sweet slightly crunchy contrast to the rich and creamy cheese. I served it to a well traveled food lover and he said, “Best Brie I’ve ever had.” I’m very critical of myself but I concur. Lol

As a Chef there’s nothing more exciting than taking the first bite of a new creation and knowing you’ve hit it out of the park. This Brie rocks!

1lb Boneless Duck Breasts

/ $134.00 per case

This is for the serious home cook. Reason being- the proper execution of these requires kitchen skill. But for those adventurous enough I would be more than happy to teach you the technique.

So I posted a couple of pics of an hours d’eouvre I did with this Duck Breast. I served it on Miso Spoons with Leek Puree and Wild Blueberry Preserves. Point is- this Duck can have many uses besides a main course?‍??
