Today I wanted to give you an update on how things have been going with the Kraft Foods and Sam’s Club Two Week Dinner Planner Program.
If you aren’t an avid follower, I was one of five bloggers selected by Kraft Foods to work on the Kraft Foods and Sam’s Club Two Week Dinner Planner program. I have been compensated for my time commitment to the program which includes my trip to Sam’s Club, my interactions/experience with the two week dinner planner, and my posts about my experience. I have also been compensated for the food purchased for the two week dinner planner. However, my opinions are entirely my own and I have not been paid to publish positive comments.
It has been a fun experience to try this program out. I have enjoyed having all of my meals planned for two weeks and for the most part we have been pleased with each meal. Today, I wanted to share the recipe for the BBQ Toasted Patty Melts. It would be a perfect meal to serve for your 4th of July celebration.
The recipe calls for wheat bread to serve the patties on, I however chose to serve them on a hamburger bun. I have plenty of them from my Sam’s shopping trip. I also elected to cook my patties on my grill instead of the suggested cooking method on the stove top in a skillet. I did season my patties with some garlic salt and pepper too. Additionally, I added a few other condiments to my patty when I ate it including pickles, mayo and lettuce.
If you have ever had a western burger from Carl’s Jr. it was very similar to that in flavor. It was a nice change to have the barbecue sauce on there with the cooked onion. I really enjoyed the smoky flavor you got from the barbecue sauce in contrast to the typical sweet ketchup we top our burgers with.This was delicious! Estimated cost per serving is $1.05. I paired these up with a salad and some chips.
Over July 3 and 4 at Sam’s Club, they will be having in-store recipe demonstrations from this dinner planner. So if you are interested in the dinner planner this would be a great opportunity to really check it out!
