Review & Giveaway: Farm Rich Snack and Appetizer

During the summer we do a lot more entertaining, both formal parties and casual play dates with friends.  I'm always looking for easy to prepare snacks and appetizers to feed our family and friends.  We recently were asked to try the line from Farm Rich, available at your neighborhood grocer's freezer section.  We selected the Mozzarella Bites and Italian Style Meatballs to review.

Mozzarella Bites Product Description:

Our Farm Rich Mozzarella Bites are similar to our famous Cheese Sticks. In fact, they’re cousins. But they are a little bit different. For one, the cheese is surrounded by soft pizzeria dough, making it a tiny pillow of cheesy goodness. And the second thing is, they are, in fact, bite-sized, which is great for you.

- Made with 100% real mozzarella cheese
- Authentic pizza crust
- Good source of calcium and protein
- 0g trans fat per serving
- Microwaveable
- Also comes in a 44 oz value pack

We prepared ours the oven, if you keep an eye on them and remove them at the first sign of the cheese oozing out the sides they are perfect!  They are little bites of goodness, the dough if flavorful and there is a light dusting of parmesean cheese on them.  Quite delicious!  The day after we first made them, my daughter asked for them again.  They were a big hit.  I suggest purchasing the value pack size, as these will go quick at any gathering.  They are great with a little pizza sauce for dipping and the whole crew will like them, including the kids, a big plus in my opinion.
Italian Style Meatballs: Product Description:

Let’s say you’re planning an Italian night and you want some “meat-a-balls” to liven up the festivities. And let’s face it, who wouldn’t? Consider our Farm Rich Italian Style Meatballs as the perfect sidekick for your noodle of choice, or serve them solo. They’re so tasty, even Italian grandmothers approve.

- Seasoned with authentic Italian seasonings
- Made with hearty ground beef and savory pork
- Appetizer size
- Fully cooked
- Convenient, resealable bag
- Microwaveable

We like meatballs, I just don't like all the time required to make them from scratch.  I like these because we can use them as appetizers with a little barbeque sauce or as a quick source of protein for a spaghetti dinner.  I wish they heated up a bit quicker, but I know they're frozen so there's not much you can do about that besides use the microwave which I prefer not to do.  However, I did try that recently and they still turned out good.  The trick is to use a little water and to use the least amount of time to prevent them from getting tough.  The mix of beef and pork makes them especially tasty.  I think they're a great time saver.

Over all I was very pleased with the quality and taste of the Farm Rich products we tried.  I am looking forwards to trying other varieties.  The Stuffed Pretzel Bites, Queso Cheese Bites, and Jalepeno Peppers all sound yummy.  Farm Rich appetizers are great snacks without that frozen taste and are nice when you want to serve something hot and more substantial than something like chips and dip but are short on time.
