Angus Cheeseburgers

My wife and I were in Sam’s the other day, she tried a sample of their frozen Angus Cheeseburgers and thought they were pretty good. Since I brownbag it a couple of times a week I bought some to take to work once in a while. Had one yesterday, it was bigger and better than the FF burgers, cheaper too. Each sandwich is a total of 5.9 oz, eight to a carton, for about $9.00.

Edited to add: next time I will take some onion and a kosher pickle to go with it.

    Did you microwave them? This sounds good to me, as I am always looking for something different to take for lunch.

    Yes, cut the end off the package and nuke for 60 seconds.

    Are they pre-cooked?...I am always looking for GOOD pre cooked burgers.
    I get some now from Schwans..I used to get them from Hannafords while in Maine, and cant find any down here..
    It was a Hannaford private label.
    Being one person, its easier to do that than buy the meat and make patties, and then have to cook them.

    They are pre-cooked. Not as good as homemade but I do not have the time, or desire, to make burgers at work. Lunch is 10-15 minutes eating a sandwich at my desk, hence brown bagging, or the 7-11 across the street.

    Oh yes - the kids love them!

    Costco has them as well. We do a 45 second nuke - then flip it (still in wrapper - but open on one end) then 40-45 on the other side.

    Quick and easy and VERY tasty!

    roosy,

    they also make a slight smaller version (4.8) available at Loew's & Harris Teeter here in Wilmington. My sister put me on to these, she gets them up in Baltimore.

    Let me tell you, while Ernesto was coming through here yesterday I was d*** glad for them!! Would I have rather gone out for a real grilled burger? Sure, but the flooding in the street kind of made that impossible, so you make do until you can.

    I've had these angus cheeseburgers, bought them at Costco, and was pleased with the product. In fact, I have an unopened box in my freezer.

    When you think of microwaved burgers, Stewart sandwiches come to mind. These are light years ahead of those.

    Stewart Sandwiches! I hadn't thought of those in years. I remember there was a bar that I used to go to a long time ago, and the only real "food" they served were Stewart Sandiwches. After several drinks, you'd think you'd been served the finest food on the planet. If eaten while sober..well...

    Hello All,
    At work we have the Angus Burgers in the vending machines from time to time. They go fast, while some
    items stay there until they turn green. I've never had one because of the price, $2.00. The
    people that have eaten them love them.
    Stewart products were great. I remember they made a great small pizza.
    Take Care,
    Fieldthistle

    I was impressed with a sample taste I got at Sam's a couple of years ago and have bought them a couple of times. Sometimes I get so wrapped up in what I'm doing I don't want to break the concentration by stopping to fix a meal much less go out and something like that is an easy, quick snack, although they're better cooked from thawed and that's hard to plan ahead for.

    I've found, though, that I can get the bun almost too hot to handle, the cheese almost disintegrated, and still the center of the patty is cool. I usually take it apart after about 40 seconds and finish the patty separately, then doctor it up with more cheese, ketchup, salsa or whatever.

    make sure you hit Whitey's on Market St at lunch for the fried fresh spots. Only open for b'fast and lunch. I highly recommend the no smoking section in the back left of the place, unless you smoke and then you can sit in the front on the right and you don't even need to light up.

    I had the same problem from freezer to Microwave. They do much better out of the refrigerator, you can keep them refrigerated for up to 14 days. I put a couple at a time in the fridge and freeze the rest.

    We got the microwave cook time down!
    For my oven, open one end of plastic wrapper, cook 45 seconds on one side, flip and cook 40 seconds on the other side.

    - let it cool for 30 seconds and it's perfect!

    ROFL..
    Thanks V960....
    I will put it on my list.
    I am taking some time off in 10 days to go visit family in Danville, VA, and after that, will take the route thru Wilmington and down 17 to home.
    A much deserved mini vacation!
    Golf season will kick here in next week, and I am just now trying to recover from the madhouse that were summer vacationers...
    This trip will do me good! (I hope)

    Whatever happened to Stewart Sandwiches? They kind of just disappeared. I also miss the little pizzas they used to make.

    Roosy,

    Take a couple of the burgers with you in a cooler and throw them on your air filter when you get hungry. Just Kidding -

    Stewart's Sandwiches is no longer in business. They had a problem with a Lysteria outbreak in the mid-nineties and sales never recovered. I googled them to find out what happened to them, and below is the sad info. from an FDA site. (http://www.fda.gov/fdac/summarys/2000/600_sjs.html)

    INJUNCTION ACTIONS
    DEFENDANT: Stewart Sandwiches, Inc., at Norfolk, Va. (E.D. Va.); Civil Action No. 90-1344-N.
    CHARGED 7-10-97: United States notified America's Foods, Inc. (AFI) in early 1997 that firm was successor and assign of Stewart Sandwiches, Inc. (Stewart) and operating out of compliance with consent decree. In July 1997, AFI agreed file together with United States, a Joint Motion to Grant Permissive Joiner and To Modify Consent Decree of Permanent Injunction.
    DISPOSITION: Modified consent decree was entered on July 15, 1997. Thereafter, the sandwiches were destroyed, the firm shut down, and all assets were sold in bankruptcy. (Inj. No. 1233; S.J. No. 5)

    Stewart Polish sausages; outstanding sausage served with a crunchy bun that was gummy inside. That guminess was almost a deal killer but hey in those days you didn't have many options.
