(Disclosure: I received products from the company to try but all thoughts are my own.)
My mom always had Schwan’s deliver food when I was younger. I remember loving the variety of food that was available. My favorite was the bow-tie pasta and vegetables mix. When I was visiting her as a teenager I’d make a quick dinner for myself by adding some butter and seasonings to it.
As an adult I had never ordered from Schwan’s so I was excited to get an opportunity to try some of the foods they offered. I got a few bags full and still haven’t tried everything that was delivered but I wanted to share about some of the items that I enjoyed.
Triple Berry, Apple, Rhubarb Pie with Vanilla Sauce– I do not like rhubarb pie but rhubarb paired with berries and apples turned out to be an amazing combination. The pie comes with a packet of vanilla sauce but it’s also delicious with their vanilla ice cream. I couldn’t get enough of this pie and I recommend baking it and bringing it over to a friend’s so you don’t eat it all yourself ;)
Fully Cooked Beef Pot Roast with Gravy– Sinisa loves pot roast but we don’t make it very often because it’s time consuming. This pot roast was ready to go into the oven and came out tender. We had plenty of leftovers to enjoy throughout the week.
Roasted Baby Bakers– Normally I slather my baked potatoes with butter, cheese, and sour cream but these potatoes don’t need anything else! They are perfectly seasoned and tiny potatoes so they cook quickly. We enjoyed these with the Pot Roast.
Cheese and Herb Biscuits– These look tiny when they come out of the bag but don’t be fooled because they plump up nicely. The amount of shredded cheese in them is generous and they remind me of the cheesy biscuits from my favorite restaurant.
Sweet Cream Cheese Pretzel Poppers– I wasn’t sure if I’d like these but the combo of salty pretzel and sweet filling won me over. They made a great snack since they only took about a minute to cook in the microwave.
Sliced Ham– I love using my crockpot so I looked on the Schwan’s website to see if anyone had tried this method of cooking the ham. I read that some people said that their ham turned out kind of dry after they cooked it. I was worried but when my ham was done cooking I pulled it out and was pleasantly surprised to discover it was nice and juicy. Since the ham was already sliced, I had just put it in the crockpot and put a slice of pineapple between each slice and cooked it in the extra juice.
