February 19 2018


Bring a snack to share—because it's the right thing to do. We have a variety of group favorites just waiting to join the party.

  1. Spinach Artichoke Dip

    As long as you bring this to a family gathering, you can do no wrong. Stop by the deli for the dip and the bakery for a loaf of soft Italian bread to serve on the side. Your Hy-Vee baker will slice a fresh loaf to your liking.

  2. Meatballs

    Bowl of mini meatballs with sauce

    People are mad about meatballs, us included. Pick up a package of fully cook frozen meatballs and simmer for 30 minutes in your favorite sauce. 

  3. Little Smokies

    Plate of little smokies with sauce

    When's the last time you had Little Smokies? If you hesitated, it's been too long. Make these a Sunday Dinner tradition and you won't have any trouble getting the family to the table. Simply heat and serve.

  4. Meat & Cheese Platter

    Choose from a selection of beautifully prepared meat and cheese trays. Or let us know how we can customize one just for you and your guests. 

  5. Rotella Wrap Tray

    Assorted deli roll-ups wrapped in colorful flour tortillas

    We love this colorful tray for easy appetizers, lunch buffets, and family gatherings. A variety of meat and cheese options are available—so everyone's happy. 

  6. Fresh Fruit & Veggie Party Trays

    vegetable platter with celery, carrots, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, broccoli, cauliflower, and dip

    Even though they don't always admit it, everyone loves a fresh veggie or fruit tray to round out the heavier options. Or maybe that's just us. If you can't decide between fruit or vegetables, look for the half and half tray. 

  7. Prepared Boneless Wings

    Because sometimes Sunday gatherings coincide with the big game. But trust us on this: Everyone will still gather if there's a platter of juicy boneless wings in the mix.
