After receiving an email asking if I’d like to try Quick ‘N Eat flame-grilled patties I was at a burger crossroads. Number one, I don’t normally respond to anyone asking me to try their products but I was intrigued.
I avoid frozen burgers like the plague but I have enjoyed on occasion one here and there. White Castle Sliders come to mind but then again, those things are tiny and more of an afternoon or midnight snack.
The Quick ‘N Eat line are currently available in 3 oz. and 4 oz. Angus beef patties and 3 oz. turkey patties. Early next year they’ll be launching a bacon and cheese patty version which sounds pretty good too.
There are only five ingredients in the beef (beef, water, spices, salt, natural flavoring) and six in the turkey (turkey, salt, mustard, spices, natural flavors & garlic powder). They do come frozen in resealable bags but are ready to eat after just two minutes in the microwave.
The Quick ‘N Eat packaging mentions that you can heat them in the oven or even throw them on a chargrill or flattop. That kinda defeats the purpose when they’re already fully cooked. Plus, if I’m buying this product it’s cause I want something that can be ready to go quickly.
The Moment of Truth
First, I attempted to cook one of the quarter pound beef and one turkey patty in an air fryer. Save yourself the trouble, don’t do it. Microwaving these is hands down the best heating method.
The half pounder did take a little bit longer to be the right temp for me but overall we’re talking they took in the 2 to 3 minute range. The beef were juicier but that’s to be expected since turkey patties aren’t exactly know for always being succulent.
My parents were my co-taste testers. Pops toasted the buns lightly and we let the American cheese do it’s own thing and melt.
They both loved the beef patties. We all agreed that the quarter pounder was the real winner and now I can see a possible double in my near future.
Please notice the beef burgers received the Burger Beast plate treatment. Sorry, but there is no such thing as a
turkey burger. Alright, enough burger preaching from me!
Quick ‘N Eat burgers get a big thumbs up from me. I like them so much, they have a space in my freezer designated just for them.
Where to find Quick ‘N Eat Burgers?
Until recently they were mostly available in Costco and Sam’s Club and some regional supermarkets like Albertsons, Woodman’s Markets and Giant Eagle. Since about a month ago, Quick ‘N Eat is now available at Walmart.
Except for the Walmart Neighborhood Market nearest to me, which nevers seems to have any. It’s fine though cause at Sam’s Club they sell a 3 lb. pound box which brings 12 of the quarter pounders.
