The Hamlet owner, Bryan Hester, is pleased to offer their ­famous holiday hams and patio dining at the newly remodeled 91st and Sheridan store.

Make your holiday meals and get-togethers extra easy and extra special with a delicious ham or turkey from The Hamlet. Since 1986, Tulsa families have enjoyed the exclusive, honey cured, spiral sliced, honey-kissed™ hams that only The Hamlet offers. These hams are always ­imitated but never duplicated. The special blend of honey and spices gives the ­honey-kissed hams their full-bodied flavor in every bite, with ­family and friends saying, “This is real ham!”

    No holiday would be complete without a turkey. The Hamlet also offers whole smoked turkeys or boneless spiral sliced, all white meat honey-kissed turkey breasts. “Order early to get just the right size ham or turkey you want,” says Bryan Hester, who with his wife, Shannon, owns two stores in Tulsa. Hams range from 7 to 18 pounds, whole smoked turkeys from 10 to 16 pounds and turkey breasts from 4 to 5 pounds.

    If you want to take the credit for an absolutely ­decadent dessert, try the pecan pie in a jar or fudge pecan pie in a jar from The Hamlet. A pie couldn’t be any quicker, easier or better. And you can enjoy the applause.

    Check out the pancake and muffin mixes for holiday breakfasts or other foods from Stonewall Kitchen or Robert Rothschild. The Hamlet also offers its own line of specialty foods to serve or to give. These include products to satisfy everything from sophisticated gourmet tastes to down home comfort cooking. Pickled quail eggs, apple butter, sweet baby corn and dilled green beans, to name a few. And the ­year-round favorite that flies off the shelves –raspberry ­chipotle sauce to serve over cream cheese or to flavor meats.

    Any of these items can form a theme for a ­customized gift basket for as little as $45, with corporate discounts available. They offer a large inventory of made in Oklahoma products that are a favorite for ­shipping anywhere in the country, as well as the honey-kissed hams in their ­distinctive gold wrappers.

    Bryan also extends an invitation to check out the new patio grill at the 91st and Sheridan location. The Hamlet patio grill offers ­year-round al fresco dining Monday through Saturday from 4 to 10 p.m. Ceiling fans, ceiling-mounted heaters and a wood burning fireplace create a comfortable setting for a fine meal.

    Menu selections include exclusive Hamlet appetizers, steaks and gourmet burgers. “All our meats are the same premium quality as our famous hams,” says Bryan. “People will enjoy them every bit as much.” Wine and ­spirits are also served. “There is not a patio like it on this side of town,” says Bryan. The patio grill is a pilot project for The Hamlet, and one that he plans to duplicate at future locations.

    Of course, you can still stop by the deli for the ­popular Hamlet lunches featuring Hamlet honey-kissed ham and turkey, and a variety of Boar’s Head meats and cheeses, cold sandwiches, grilled sandwiches, wraps, ­salads, ham and beans, chili and soup.

    When you want only the best for family and guests, get a honey-kissed ham from The Hamlet. Call (918) 496-2242 to place your holiday orders for home or business. Party platters that serve up to 100 are available for pick-up or delivery to your door. For added convenience, you can order online from your ­computer, smart phone or tablet. Holiday store hours are Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. at both ­locations, the southeast ­corner of 91st and Sheridan and 71st and Trenton.
