tasty_tailgating

Don’t come up short when game time rolls around. We’re your game day destination when it comes to food, and our Tasty Tailgating offerings are fresh and ready to go. Sit back, relax, enjoy the game, and let us help you make your tailgating party a great one.

First Half

Everything starts with the Guacamole Outpost.  Game-day weekends feature fresh guacamole, made to order at our Guacamole Carts. It works well as a dip, or as a spread on sandwiches. If you’re more of a do-it-yourself kind of person, fresh Hass Avocadoes are available in our Produce department.

Make your game-time finger food easy, spicy and fun for with our new Build Your Own Nacho Kits, with pre-cooked seasoned ground beef, homemade chips and more! Or go for make your own sliders. Our Build Your Own Grilled Cheddar Bacon Chicken Mini Sliders Kit comes complete with chopped slaw, fresh jalapeños and honey mustard spread, and is served with Roche Bros. Potato Chips.

Our Cheese Department assembles our own Tasty Tailgating Tapas Trays. With a few different varieties available, there’s something for everyone with different combinations of crackers, cheese and toppings.

If you swing by Our Kitchen, you’ll find a wide assortment of appetizers and finger foods that will fit just about any party. Try some of our homemade dips, such as our 7 Layer Dip or Buffalo Chicken Dip with your favorite crackers or chips. We also have other favorite appetizers, like mozzarella sticks, or stuffed potato skins.

Football season is prime time for our Wing Bar. Your guests and family will love the assortment of flavors available, including fan favorites – Buffalo, Teriyaki, and Bourbon! The best part? They’re served hot and ready to eat!

If you’re looking for a little something that will catch everyone’s attention, our Bakery’s Bloomin’ Bread has become a staple for tailgating.  Loaded with mozzarella and pepperoni, your guests will pull it apart in seconds!

Second Half

Make sure you save room for the main course! When half-time rolls around, it’s time to start cooking. Our USDA Prime Burgers are an excellent choice if you’re cooking on the grill. Switch things up a bit by trying on of our flavored burgers such as the Steak Bomb burger, Bacon and Cheddar, or Portabella Swiss.

Our Italian sausage and Bratwurst are also crowd pleasers. Grill them up and finish them off with your favorite toppings like onions or peppers.

If the weather is bad, or if you don’t want the hassle of cooking a big meal, our BBQ Pulled Pork and St. Louis Ribs are tangy, flavorful choices, ready to heat and serve. Add our deli’s cole slaw or homemade potato salad, our bakery’s Blooming Bread — loaded with pepperoni or quesadillas to complete the spread.

Finish everything off with some desserts from our Bakery. Football Field Dessert Cakes and Football Whoopie Pies are festive and fun additions to your spread. And our brownie and cookie snack plates are great for smaller gatherings and give your guests a taste of gourmet cookies and brownies.

We hope  to see you this weekend and every weekend during the football season to help with your tailgating parties. Enjoy the season, and of course, go Pats!

Top Tips for Back to School

By Sara White September 04, 2016

BackToSchool

 

The summer flew by and all of a sudden, it’s time for the kids to get back to school. From making breakfast that is quick and filling to packing lunch your kids will love to having dinner ready at a reasonable time, here are our top tips for a smooth transition back to school:

 

1) Make lunch in bite-sized pieces: Lunch is more exciting when you can pop it in your mouth – and almost anything can be made mini. Cook hot dogs and pack them in small pieces in a thermos. Pack a separate container of mini-mozzarella balls and another of cherry or grape tomatoes, and eat it all with a toothpick. Cut sandwiches into mini triangles, or make PB&J on mini-silver dollar pancakes for a change!

2) Eat the rainbow: Up the ante on the health quotient of everyone’s lunchbox with fruit and vegetable-based choices that no one can resist. Make crisp salads with fresh vegetables, crunchy nuts or seeds, and leftover protein from last night’s dinner. Pasta salads are great vehicles for any leftover veggies, raw or cooked. To make it even simpler, we cut veggies and fruit of all types and colors for you! Stop by the produce department to check out the full selection. For our latest ideas on produce that’s fun to pack and eat, check out: Avoiding the Lunch Box Rut: Eating the Rainbow!

3) Grab snacks in packs: The grocery aisles at Roche Bros. are stocked with snacks in packs that make adding that one last thing to the lunch box a breeze. From Skinny Pop Popcorn to Cape Cod Potato Chips to Annie’s Organic Bunny Fruit Snacks, the options abound for crunchy, salty and sweet snacks that are ready to go in an instant.

4) Plan tomorrow’s dinner … today … or the day before that: Even a little bit of planning in advance will make it much more likely that you’ll have dinner on the table on a school night before everyone is clamoring for the snacks in the pantry. Marinate chicken and leave it in the refrigerator the night before, so it’s ready to pop in the oven when you get home from work. Chop vegetables for the next few days on Sunday afternoon and take them out as needed for stir-fries and salads. Or throw everything for a big soup, stew or braised meat or veggies into the slow-cooker in the morning for dinner that’s ready when everyone gets home.

5) Prep great choices for breakfast on the run: Be prepared so no one is rushing out of the house hungry! Hard-boil eggs and have them at the ready or bake mini-egg muffins with meat and chopped veggies mixed in to heat and eat in transit. Find frozen pancakes, waffles and French toast sticks in the freezer section. Pop them in the microwave or toaster and you’re good to go. Have a box of energy bars or granola bars available for days when heating something up is out of the question.

 

Good luck in the new school year from all of us at Roche Bros.!

Greetings from Maine!

By Sara White August 11, 2016

Pin It

We’re celebrating the season with our favorite flavors from Maine. From sweet and tangy wild blueberries to fresh succulent lobsters, there’s always something delicious to eat from Maine, no matter what time of day.

A “Berry” Good Breakfast

Pour yourself a fresh cup of coffee, and start your day with the fresh taste of Maine Blueberries. Treat the whole family to blueberry waffles or pancakes with Stonewall Kitchen’s Farmhouse Pancake and Waffle Mix, using Kate’s Butter and Real Butter Milk. Top the whole plate off with Stonewall’s Maine Maple Syrup or Wild Maine Blueberry Jam, for an extra anti-oxidant boost.

For something a little lighter, our own blueberry loaf breads and coffee cakes are always a favorite, especially when paired with Stonewall’s Jams or Jellies – made in York, ME.

 

Lobstah!
The “Maine” Attraction

Lunch on the go is a breeze with our stores’s Lobster Shacks. They’re serving up our own, fresh made Maine Lobster Rolls. Check it out on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday between 4:30 and 6:30pm.

For dinner, you can have a Maine celebration of your own. Of course, you’ll need to stop by the seafood counter for everything you need to host your own New England Clambake. From steamed clams to fresh Maine lobsters ready to boil, you’ll find everything you need for a complete menu. Check out our guide to Hosting a New England Clambake for tips!

 

Whoopie!
Mousse or Moose?

The Maine celebration doesn’t stop after dinner. Enjoy a slice of Maine’s official State Dessert by picking up one of our Bakery’s Wild Maine Blueberry Pies, served with a scoop of Gifford’s Ice Cream, made right in Skowhegan, ME.

On the other hand, Maine’s official “State Treat” get’s some love from our Bakery, where an assortment of Whoopie Pies are available to satisfy your sweet tooth.  Steve’s Whoopie Pies offer a wide assortment of flavors, including Red Velvet, Double Chocolate and more, or pick up one of our own Character Decorated, or Lemon Raspberry Whoopie Pies. Finally, if you’re family is absolutely crazy about whoopie pies, The “Big Whoop” – a cake sized whoopie pie – might be just what you need.

Come down to Roche Bros. this week and treat yourself to your own little slice of Maine, right in your own backyard!

Too Hot to Cook?

By Sara White July 27, 2016

Pin It

It’s hot and humid out with temperatures in the 90s, and that means turning on the oven for a long stretch of time is about the last thing you want to do at the end of a busy day.

Here are our top tips for eating (and we mean enjoying great food) without the heat:

 

Make dinner without turning on the oven or stove: Some of the best summer meals focus on the freshest produce. Enjoy tomatoes off the vine in chilled gazpacho. Blend 2 chopped tomatoes with 1 cucumber, 2 peppers in your choice of colors, 3 stalks of celery and 1 small onion. Add 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil, 2 tablespoons of vinegar and 1 teaspoon of crushed garlic. Season to taste with salt, pepper and crushed red pepper. Top your gazpacho with fresh crab meat or lobster, or a few slices of avocado.

These late summer days are a perfect excuse for a Caprese Salad made with our Homemade Mozzarella or a Panzanella Salad with chopped tomatoes, cubes of crusty Italian bread and red wine vinaigrette.

Celebrate summer Asian style! Set up all the fixins’ for lettuce wraps so everyone can make their own. Include rice noodles, fresh basil and mint, thinly sliced carrot sticks, cucumber and scallions. Add cooked shrimp, available in our seafood department, or precooked grilled chicken. For sauces, something spicy such as Sriracha and a ponzu sauce should do the trick!

For a crisp, cool plate that’s fit for a meal, follow our new guide to making a flavorful and filling salad: The Anatomy of a Great Summer Salad.

Pick up complete BBQ and deli meals that are ready to go: In Roche Bros. Kitchen, we deal with the hot stoves and ovens so you don’t have to! Stop by to pick up everything you need for a BBQ. We have BBQ chicken leg quarters, pulled pork and ribs, ready to heat (just briefly, and only if you really want to) and serve.

Try our wide selection of fresh salads, including our new Chef-Crafted Salads with fresh greens and chef-inspired dressings, and great salad choices that include rainbow carrots and white and green asparagus. At our deli, find high-quality deli meats ready to go from Dietz & Watson, Plainville and many others, or choose what you want and we’ll cut it to order. With our home-cooked turkey and roast beef on fresh bread, served with our own potato salad on the side, you won’t even miss a hot meal!

Have fun with recipes that need the freezer: When you  need something icy cold that everyone will love, make homemade ice pops! For a juicy, fruity, thirst quencher, add frozen berries and mango pieces to fresh orange juice and freeze. Use black or green tea as a base for a morning or afternoon pick-me-up. Add fresh lemon and honey before freezing. For a creamy dessert treat, blend fruit (or even some chocolate!) with yogurt, coconut milk or ice cream.

Keep it simple with a sheet of frozen grapes or blueberries. For an added twist, coat grapes in sugar before freezing. Or complement their natural sweetness by spicing them up with Asian Five Spice Powder.

Of course, if you don’t have time to make your own, we have a wide selection of frozen treats waiting for you in the grocery aisle!

Happy 4th of July from Roche Bros.!

You know summer is in full swing when July 4th is upon us! At Roche Bros., we have everything you need to celebrate Independence Day with family and friends.

From that sweet and tangy BBQ flavor to desserts in patriotic shapes and colors, here are our suggestions to make your Fourth of July special:

grill_image

Heating Things Up

If you’re looking to heat things up by firing up the grill – or want a little spice at your cookout – we have all the special items you need to  your BBQ.

For the main course, offer our Certified Angus Prime Grinds and Fenway Franks.

Don’t forget to stop in the bakery for the rolls! And look for gluten-free BBQ options in the grocery aisle.

Make it a Rib Fest with all sorts of fresh ribs in our meat department, with your favorite barbecue sauce. You can also find grill-ready ribs – and a wide array of other marinated meats from chicken thighs to skirt steak – in our meat case. Or bring home a ready-to-go BBQ from Our Kitchen with our Signature Bourbon Grilled Steak Tips or  St. Louis BBQ Ribs! Just heat and serve, without even lighting up the grill.

Add some real cache to your stars-and-stripes celebration with our Chef Ready Lobster Tails. Try them plain or marinated, with your choice of Lemon Rosemary, Lime Vinaigrette, Roasted Garlic, Sweet Teriyaki or Sriracha BBQ.

grilled_veggies

Show off your cooking skills by grilling vegetables to enjoy on the side. From corn on the cob grilled in the husk to rainbow grilled vegetables on skewers, you really can’t go wrong.

Or pick up some ready-to-go side dishes from Our Kitchen. Try some long-time BBQ favorites, such as Mom’s Baked Beans, mac and cheese and cole slaw. Or change it up with roasted fingerling potatoes, mango salad or vegetables with pesto.

When you’re ready for a toast, check out our primer on pairing your grilled meats with wines to enhance their flavor.

 

Playing it Cool

With the sun beating down, some of your guests will surely want to play it cool. Make sure you have these crisp, cool options available for them to enjoy:

Salads: Always a crowd-pleaser, find Bud Roche’s original recipe Homemade Potato Salad in our deli department.

It’s also a great time to try something new! Serve up the new salads from Our Kitchen. Select from spicy, sweet Mango Salad,  Kale Caprese Salad that’s a fresh twist on a classic, Sweet and Sour Rainbow Salad and White and Green Asparagus Salad.

Dips: Our Kitchen’s Guacamole, Seven-Layer Dip and Buffalo Chicken Dip go well with crackers, chips and your crudite platter.

Cheese: For the holiday festivities, why not make your own cheese board? Roche Bros.’ cheese department has everything you need. A traditional French cheese board includes four cheeses: one made with sheep’s milk, one made with cow’s milk, one goat cheese and one blue cheese.

Try Locatelli Pecorino Romano, President Brie, Chavrie Goat Cheese and Salemville Amish Blue. Or ask an expert for suggestions in the cheese department. Add grapes, almonds and a bit of honey and your cheese board is complete.

And if don’t have the time, don’t worry! We have plenty of time to make a cheese board for you, so come to Roche Bros. to pick one up.

Flag_Cake_Picnic

Finishing Sweet

We’re celebrating red, white and blue with an array of Patriotic Desserts in our bakery that are ready for you to bring home! From cakes to tarts to trifles, we have an option for everyone.

Use that sweet final moment to keep things cool with sliced watermelon and popsicles in all colors. On a holiday at this time of year, you’ll need enough frozen delights for kids and grown-ups alike.

Extend the party a little bit longer by circling the grill and roasting marshmallows to make s’mores. We have many choices for graham crackers, marshmallows and chocolate throughout the grocery department. For a new twist on this campfire tradition, try our new recipe for “Adult S’mores,” with local ingredients from Vermont!

Happy 4th of July from all of us at Roche Bros.!american_flag_photo

Your New Year’s Celebration Made Easy

By Sara White December 27, 2015

Pin It

1218WebBanner3

Eat and enjoy at your New Year’s celebration with our ideas for great finger food and appetizers that are easy, festive and fun to eat:

  1. Serve skewers with fresh mozzarella balls, grape tomatoes and fresh basil, with a drizzle of balsamic vinegar on top.
  2. Pick up seafood appetizers in Roche Bros. seafood department. From mini-crab cakes to fried calamari rings, we have fresh seafood apps for everyone at your party.
  3. Speaking of seafood, include seafood stuffed mushrooms in your spread. Find them in the seafood department, or make your own with our recipe for Lobster Stuffed Mushrooms.
  4. Spread boursin cheese on endive. Sprinkle with chopped walnuts and fresh parsley.
  5. Stop by Roche Bros. Kitchen for appetizer platters of fig & brie poppers or beef au poivre wrapped in asparagus. For an Asian themed station, try our new Asian Appetizer Sampler, with crab rangoon, spring rolls and pork dumplings with duck sauce.
  6. Assemble slices of smoked salmon on rice crackers with cream cheese and a sprig of dill. For half the batch, replace the cracker with a cucumber round!
  7. Medjool dates with melting cheese and bacon! Remove the pits of medjool dates. Fill the dates with goat cheese or gorgonzola. Wrap in bacon and bake.
  8. Roast lamb bites in the oven and pair them with mint jelly. Before cooking, marinate the lamb in olive oil, fresh-squeezed lemon, rosemary and thyme. Pair it with mint jelly.
  9. Make-your-own or bring home deviled eggs. We’re offering truffled deviled eggs in packs of 5. For a twist on the classic, hard boil the eggs, remove the cooked yolks and blend with avocado and a little hot sauce instead of mayonnaise.
  10. Visit Roche Bros. Kitchen for sweet & sour meatballs by the pound. Or buy frozen meatballs to heat and serve with a choice of sauces: marinara, honey Dijon and buffalo!
  11. Slice a 1-lb. Kielbasa and cover it in a pot with ½ cup of ketchup and ½ cup of brown sugar. Heat on the stove until the sauce turns to a syrup and serve.
  12. Bake up olive puffs! Wrap a pitted kalamata olive in crescent dough. Then, bake until golden brown and they’re ready to serve.
  13. Layer baguette slices with sliced pears and gorgonzola. Melt the cheese in the oven. Top with dried cranberries and chopped walnuts.
  14. Take popcorn up a notch with a popcorn bar, set up with a wide array of toppings. Assemble individual bowls with sea salt, Italian seasoning, chili powder, cinnamon sugar, M&Ms, grated cheese and more!
  15. Wrap prosciutto around cantaloupe balls, and serve with a toothpick.

From all of us at Roche Bros., we wish you a Happy 2016!
