"This #HalftimeHero creation is brought to you by FarmRich. All opinions expressed are my own."
Yes, I am a chef. Yes, I can create out-of-this-world dishes. No, I don’t always have the time to create everything from scratch. Particularly when it comes to finger-licking, Big Game Day menu ideas. So, I’m always on the search for time saving options in the grocery store. Recently, I came across FarmRich Meatballs in the freezer section.
1 gram of sugar and gluten free, I was sold and it only got better from there! I’m an overachiever, so I picked up their Original and Italian Style tyle Meatballs and made two tasty go-to sandwiches for Game Day!
If you live a busy life like me, FarmRich is the brand for wholesome and easy offerings that everyone will LOVE!

4 cups Farm Rich meatballs (I used half Original and half Italian style)
1 cup barbecue sauce
1 cup tomato sauce
4 hamburger buns (I used brioche)
1 tbsp finely chopped rosemary (Optional)
2 tbsp melted butter
1 sunny side up cooked egg
1 cup sliced and sautéed peppers
½ cup spinach or your favorite leaf lettuce, chopped
2 slices of your favorite cheese
Preheat oven to 400.
Combine rosemary and butter in small bowl. With a pastry brush (or spoon if you don’t have a brush) apply rosemary butter on tops and inside of each bun.
Place on cooking sheet and in the oven for 10 minutes are until golden brown.
In a small saucepan combine meatballs, barbecue sauce and tomato sauce over low heat. Simmer while occasionally stirring for 15-20 minutes until meatballs are heated through.
For the first sandwich place peppers on bottom bun, add meatballs and cheese. Return to oven until cheese melts.
For second sandwich place spinach on bottom bun, add meatballs and egg. Top with bun, serve and enjoy!
