Quick Snack – Husband Style

I have googled, I have pinterested, I have looked everywhere for a quick and easy snack for the hubs.
He comes in every evening from work famished and then quickly escalates to grouchy if there’s not a quick snack on hand to hold him over until dinner. Sure there are some fun snack ideas for kids, for healthy eaters, but let’s be realistic… My husband is neither of those. 😉

So I am super excited to share with you my latest husband snack solution!

husband snack idea

That’s right peeps. Summer sausage and cheese. No, it’s not the healthiest of snacks, but it’s a yummy combination that’s easy to fix up and the husband (and me, if I’m being honest) loves it!

All you need is a stick of summer sausage (they’re popular at most grocery stores this time of year so they shouldn’t be hard to find, but they are normally by the pepperoni in the lunch meat section FYI), a chunk of your preferred cheese (we like sharp cheddar) and some sandwich baggies.

making a snack for husband

Now, the most difficult step… slice up the cheese and summer sausage. 😉
Your husband will thank you for this… it equals snack in hand when he walks in the door which then equals happy hubs.
Fill a baggy with three or four slices of cheese and sausage, then refrigerate.

See? All ready to go and next to my snacks in the fridge, no worries that the hubs will get my yogurt confused with his meat and cheese snack… haha.

What’s your favorite quick and easy snack??

  1. You are so very thoughtful! I bet your hubby is smiling all the time! My Handsome Husband is currently addicted to caramel corn. You might remember my post about it. There is a monster bowl of it on the counter. A handful of that and he is happy! -Marci @ Stone Cottage Adventures

      Ah caramel corn! We’ve been getting those random packages of peanuts and snack baskets for the holidays, but the popcorn tins are one of my favorite!

  2. What a great idea! My husband is always trying to sneak a taste of what I’m cooking and I’m always slapping his hand (not hard) to stay out. Think I may try this. Thanks for sharing,

    This is amazing!!! I will have to remember this one day… :)



  4. LOL! My husband is a lean mean eating machine. If I handed him a bag of cheese and sausage for a snack he would probably laugh in my face. He’s 5’10, 140lbs and his idea of a snack is half a box of cereal or two ham sandwiches with cookies. No for myself? Cheese and sausage sounds sooooooooo good right now!

    • Kassi @ Truly Lovely says:

      HAHA! Sounds like my dad. His snacks tend to be an entire meal for anyone else. The hubs is almost that bad! He blows right through these snacks in about three days. haha

  5. Aw, how sweet of you! And it really looks delicious – we can’t just eat healthy, right?! haha

    • Kassi @ Truly Lovely says:

      Right!! My hubs is absolutely NOT a healthy eater… And I gotta be honest, I tend to eat not so healthy myself most of the time. haha

  6. Ya kno I was looking for somethin similar for my hubbs, dont know why I never thought of this! great idea!

    • Kassi @ Truly Lovely says:

      Well there you go! :) I felt silly a little bit after coming up with it, like why didn’t I think of this sooner!

  7. That’s a great idea! Hubby comes home every day and eats a bowl of chips and salsa. It wouldn’t be such a bit deal, except we never can get enough tomato stuff to make salsa each year so I always run out by February!

    • Kassi @ Truly Lovely says:

      Chips and salsa is a favorite snack at our house too! Maybe now you can spread the salsa out a little longer. 😉

  8. I’m glad I’m not the only one with a husband who gets cranky if he doesn’t have a snack when he gets home, haha. We both love the summer sausage and cheese combo, but we usually put them on Ritz crackers :)

    • Kassi @ Truly Lovely says:

      Ooh Ritz crackers make a yummy addition! And even more filling if there’s awhile until dinner. 😉
