Tomato and Basil Mozzarella Bites

I'm not the best cook in the world, but I have learned a few tricks to turn my fast and easy frozen snacks into something totally special, fresh, and nutritious.  Adding fresh produce to snacks is key.  It's so easy anyone can do it and you will fool all your guests into thinking you are a pro cook.  And if you have a little creative cooking juice in your body, Farm Rich is hosting a huge contest- you could win $10,000. Chump change, right?  Here's my recipe:

Tomato and Basil Mozzarella Bites

Preparation time: 12- 15 minutes
Farm Rich Mozzarella Bites
Fresh tomatoes
Fresh Basil
Olive Oil
Balsamic Vinaigrette (optional)

1.  Buy Farm Rich Mozzarella bites at your local Walmart.
2.  Follow cooking instructions on box.  (I cooked mine in the oven- 9-10 minutes at 350 degrees).
3.  While mozzarella bites are cooking, cut up fresh basil and tomatoes.
4.  When mozzarella bites are done, put a small amount of basil on top of bite, topped with half a slice of tomato.
5.  Drizzle olive oil (and Balsamic Vinaigrette if desired) on top.

(I love the balsamic vinaigrette on top- it gives it such a sweet and yummy taste.)

The plate on the right has the balsamic vinaigrette on it, the other two plates have just olive oil.  Both delicious!

As I mentioned earlier, you can create your own snack hack with Farm Rich products and enter to win $10,000.  Here's some info on the contest.
  • Contestants MUST use at least one Farm Rich product and one Walmart fresh item, plus any special ingredients (up to 6 ingredients total) you want to include to create snack hacks between 8/1 and 8/23.
  • The winner will receive $10,000.
  • Enter the contest on the Back Your Snack contest submission page. Create their own snack hack. Get your recipe ready!  (Seriously, nothing in this world would be as awesome as someone from my blog entering this contest and winning $10,000.  Of course, you'd owe me a 10% commission.)  (Kidding.)  (Or am I?)
  • Please note that the main focus for judging criteria is quality of recipe and use of require ingredients, not quality of imagery submitted.
  • For full contest rules, check out the rule book here.

You can find Farm Rich products in the freezer department at Walmart.  Here is a list of stores where you can find the upcoming demos of the semi- finalists on 9/19 and 9/20, and the finalists on 10/9 and 10/11.
