I think my husband is the biggest fan of mozzarella sticks on the planet. They are right up at the top of the list of his favorite things to eat and he is always game to eat them. So, when he saw me return from Walmart with a box of Farm Rich Mozzarella Sticks this weekend I am pretty sure I heard him let out an actual “Woo hoo!”
I love mozzarella sticks too and I also love how Farm Rich has so many choices of tasty snacks that we can keep in the freezer and pull out to make a tasty snack or a party appetizer in just a few minutes. While they are delicious prepared just “as is”, it’s also fun to put our own unique spin on serving them by creating all new recipes.
Farm Rich wants to see how creative YOU can get and are hosting a special Back Your Snack recipe contest launching August 1st. To enter, just use use at least one Farm Rich product and one Walmart fresh item, plus any special ingredients you want to include, to create a snack hack that’s all your own. Enter by 8/23/15. The winner will receive $10,000. You’ll be able to attend demos of the finalists on 9/19- 20 and on 10/9 and 10/11 in these Walmart stores. Start thinking about what you want to create so you’ll be ready to enter starting Saturday. See official rules here.
I put my mind to work to come up with my own snack hack. Since one of my favorite things to eat is caprese salad, I decided to combine my favorite with hubby’s favorite and make this Mozzarella Stick Caprese Bites Recipe. It is super quick and easy to make and tastes delicious!
Mozzarella Stick Caprese Bites Recipe
For Caprese Bites:
4 Farm Rich Mozzarella Sticks
16 small fresh basil leaves (or 8 larger leaves torn in half)
