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 usually 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 those things are tiny and more of an afternoon or midnight snack.
Quick ‘N Eat! Table of Contents
The Quick ‘N Eat line is available in 3 oz. and 4 oz. Angus beef patties and 3 oz. turkey patties.
They’ll be launching a bacon and cheese patty version early next year.
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 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. But that kind of 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 Burger 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 was juicier, but that’s to be expected since turkey patties aren’t exactly known for always being succulent.
My parents were my co-taste testers. Pops toasted the buns lightly, and we let the American cheese do its own thing and melt.
They both loved the beef patties. However, we all agreed that the quarter-pounder was the real winner, and now I can see a possible double soon.
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 primarily available in Costco, Sam’s Club, and some regional supermarkets like Albertsons, Woodman’s Markets, and Giant Eagle. Quick ‘N Eat is now available at Walmart about a month ago.
The Walmart Neighborhood Market nearest to me never seems to have any. It’s OK, though, cause Sam’s Club sells a three lb. pound box that brings 12 quarter pounders.

Quick ‘ N Eat Burgers NO MORE
In July 2022, Quick ‘N Eat! quietly updated its website and announced that it had made its last flame-grilled patties. It makes sense cause for the previous few months, it had been challenging to find any.
Yet, I think there is a solution. One of the Walmart brands, Marketside, sells individual microwaveable Angus cheeseburgers ($3), double cheeseburgers ($4), and bacon cheeseburgers ($3.50) that come on a sesame seed bun.
If I were a betting man, I’d say these are the same burger patties. Go ahead and try them and let me know,
Also, there’s a Great Value Cheeseburger 4-pack ($6.38) which is a good burger too!
