This year, I’m thrilled to be partnering with locally-owned Marc’s Stores, featuring Kretschmar Deli Meats. This Blog is done in sponsored partnership with Kretschmar Deli Meats, all thoughts and recipes are my own.

I know you probably know this about me, but I love deli meat. I love making lettuce wraps, flatbreads, grilled sandwiches, and salads with my favorite selections, and I like to trust what I’m buying. When walking up to the deli counter, I want to make sure I’m able to grab a healthy option that’s free of MSG, fillers, and gluten, and Kretschmar checks off all of those boxes.

I’ll be sharing some fun and easy holiday inspired recipes featuring some of the Kretschmar Off -The -Bone Turkey & Ham options on the blog, and also on my instagram, @thatswhatsheeats.

When walking into Marc’s, I know just where to go. After grabbing my deli selections, I head to the produce section, where they now have two areas full of fresh cut fruits and veggies, some organic products, and even dairy- free options. I love that Marc’s is bringing healthy options to shoppers at a really affordable price.

I filled my cart with some essentials and headed home to make something great. Here’s what’s on my menu this holiday season.

1 tablespoon cranberry jelly
1 tablespoon pesto
½ cup sliced mozzarella
4 slices of sourdough

1. Spread sourdough with butter and place in a skillet over medium heat.
2. Combine mayo and cranberry jelly to make a holiday aioli, and spread on one half of your sandwiches. Spread the other halves with pesto.
3. Layer apples and turkey on one side, and fresh mozzarella on the other.
