I have to admit that I am a very semi-homemade cook; it is very rare (alright almost unheard of) for me to cook something from scratch. I think with all of the premade and meal helpers that we have available to us today it’s kind of silly (for a busy mom) to try and cook everything homemade.
Last month I had the chance to do a review for Farm Rich appetizers and I couldn’t have been more happy about it. With all of the holiday parties I was attending I knew I would need all of the help I could get with the food that I would be preparing and Farm Rich was a huge time saver. For those of you who have never heard of Farm Rich here is a little more information about them from their website:
Farm Rich® products have been setting the standard for delicious, easy-to-prepare food the whole family loves.
Farm Rich® foods taste like nothing else because they're made like nothing else – with 100% real ingredients like real cheese, high-quality meats and fresh vegetables. Our snacks, appetizers, and breakfast foods are quick-frozen and carefully packaged so busy families can prepare great tasting food within minutes.
Farm Rich® is a Rich's Consumer Brand, which brings to market some of the food industry's leading retail brands including SeaPak® Shrimp Co., Casa Di Bertacchi® and more.
We got to try several of the many varieties of appetizers from Farm Rich for our review and I have to admit that I really liked them all (a little too much…my waist line wasn’t amused). My son loved the pizza slices and I loved that they were not messy like a regular slice of pizza and my favorite was definitely the mozzarella bites…heavenly!
This New Year’s eve I hosted a small party for family and friends at my house and I knew that it was the perfect opportunity to incorporate Farm Rich appetizers into my entertaining. I had a recipe for Barbeque Meatballs that my mother had given me a while ago that I had been wanting to try out and this was the perfect opportunity. The meatballs (recipe below) were a huge hit and using the Farm Rich meatballs was such a time saver; I will definitely use this recipe (and Farm Rich meatballs) to entertain with again soon.
Mom’s BBQ Meatballs
1 38 oz. package Farm Rich meatballs
2 bottles of BBQ sauce (any brand will do)
1 small jar of Grape jelly
Cook meatballs according to package directions. In a medium saucepan combine both bottles of BBQ sauce and half of the jar of grape jelly, heat over medium low heat until mixture is thoroughly combines. Transfer meatballs to slow cooker and ad BBQ sauce mixture. Keep warm in the slow cooker for up to 4 hours. Enjoy!
