Market Pantry™ : Frozen Appetizers & Snacks : Target Crusted coatings can incorporate whole grains, multigrains, seeds, fruits, vegetables and seasonings. “These more-health-conscious products were developed to be oven-cooked, to help reduce the fat, without any fat, that would be contributed from par-fry or full-fry preparation,” says Forde. Smaller portions with reduced cook times, such as appetizers, may be par-fried, depending on the ingredients in the coating. The company combines these coatings with flavors like Mediterranean, New England butter and tarragon, Thai lemongrass and red chili, and cracked black pepper with herbs and fruit.

Will the food actually taste as appealing as it looks on the box? Will people be able to tell it's not homemade? And in terms of nutrition, are you basically serving fancy fast food? To answer these questions, Eat This, Not That! braved the tundra that is the frozen food section and examined all of the appetizers. Below, you'll find a culmination of our detective work: the very best and the very worst apps in the supermarket. And if you're typically a frazzled host, be sure to pick up some entertaining tips from our special report .When it comes to celebrations, everyone know that the pre-game and the after-party are always more fun than the main event. And we'd argue that the same rule holds true when it comes to eating: Appetizers—the food world's equivalent to a pre-party—and desserts are always the best parts. That said, if you're hosting a party or just want to kick off a dinner with some light bites, you'll want to take care in curating your menu—especially if you're going the frozen appetizer route. Now that we've convinced you that there's no need to go all Martha for your dinner guests, allow us to introduce you to Trader Joe's frozen, store-bought appetizers. There are some great options out there that need nothing more than a short spin through the oven, which means you can focus on more important things like catching up with your friends.
