appetizerIT’S TIME WE MET.

CHEESES ARE OUR SPECIALTY
We offer a truly impressive variety of deliciously different breaded cheese appetizers.  When your objective is to distinguish your menu from your competitors by making your (cheese appetizer) products better and different, you’ll want to upgrade to include some of our fine cheese selections.

YOU’LL GET A KICK OUT OF THIS!
Our Stuffed Jalapeno Peppers are absolutely spicy and delicious!  But don’t be afraid of the heat.  The heat of our peppers is delicately balanced against the cool of our cheese stuffings and the crunch of our select breading.  Make room to allow the pepper to play a big part in your appetizer menu.

IT’S TIME YOU KNEW
We’ve been making Natural Onion Rings since the late 1950’s.  (None of the big guys were even in the business back then.  Maybe they could learn from us!)

TAKE A CLOSE LOOK AT OUR VEGETABLE ITEMS
Our vegetables are demonstrably better!  Absolutely the finest zucchini, mushrooms, broccoli, cauliflower, okra and squash to be found anywhere.

WHAT MAKES US UNIQUE
It’s the painstakeing care we take to source only the finest fresh ingredients for use in our appetizers.

OUR CHEESES ARE 100% NATURAL
We work closely with the best artisan cheesemakers in the country to bring you authentic high identity cheeses.  No imitations are tolerated.

OUR VEGETABLES ARE A STUDY IN NATURAL FRESHNESS AND FLAVOR
We race our vegetables from farm to market to give you the absolute best products possible.  Fresh, not IQF!

NO “RINGERS” IN OUR ONION RINGS
Jumbo Sweet Spanish Onions are grown to our exacting standards by the best onion farmers in the business.  How do you make the best onion rings in the country?  You start with the best onions of course!


breaded zucchiniBETTER BATTERS, BREAD, AND BREADINGS
We use the same premium ingredients you would use at home.  Each of our batters and breadings has a homemade goodness only realized with the addition of that special ingredient:  Love.  It’s a love of our products that drives us to find just that right combination of seasoning and spice, breading and texture, which will compliment each individual appetizer.  It may be the beer in our beer batter or the real Parmesan and Romano cheeses used in the Italian style breading we use for our zucchini.  Perhaps it’s the Japanese breadcrumbs used on our onion rings or it could be the cayenne pepper we so subtly introduce as a background flavor in a cheese item.  It could even be the texture of coarse ground bread or the cumulative effect of a triple dipping and breading.  Maybe even a quadruple dip!  But in each and every case, you can be sure that we’ve found the extra special flavor combination which imparts a loving character to our appetizers.
