Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (WTF!) Burger From Burgabox

Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (WTF!) Burger From Burgabox

#ad Looking for a tasty dinner idea? Try the Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (WTF) BurgaBox. Get a review of it from www.drugstoredivas.net.

It was a Friday during Lent when a huge box of meat arrived at our doorstep. My plan was just to put the whole thing in the fridge and wait a few days, but it doesn’t work like that. Burgabox does not send a box that’s fridge sized. Instead, it sends enough food to feed four people once, then two people for a few more days during the week.

So, finally, after abstaining from meat on Friday, then waiting a Saturday (because we had dinner plans), my parents came over on a Sunday to check out the Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (WTF!) BurgaBox.

Let’s chat about Burgabox for a minute. It’s a subscription box that’s not for the faint of heart. It comes with 8 oz. burgers (either two or four, depending on what you order), French fries, and macaroni and cheese. Plus, all the toppings you could ever want on a burger. And then, because that might not be enough, you also get baked beans and coleslaw.

Our toppings were (okay, are you ready for this?), macaroni and cheese, pulled pork, an onion ring, pickles, and BBQ sauce. For a minute it seems like a lot, and when you get all that on top of your burger, it also looks like a lot. But when you take a bite, everything goes together to give a bite of the most perfect burger.

In addition to all the ingredients, you also get instructions on cooking and assembly, which is very helpful.

What You’ll Need:

  • Everything you need is included in the Burgabox that is sent to you

What You’ll Do:

Heat up your charcoal grill and grill your burgers. Now, okay. This is the only way we deviated from the instructions in the box. It says to cook your burgers in a pan. I know this actually is a method to cook the burger in its own fat and juices, filling it with flavor. But, it’s basically summer here. And in the summer, you can’t beat a burger from the grill.

Oh, we put the buns on the grill too. But, I mean, a burger in summer. It’s basically sac-relig to not, right?

While your burger is grilling, cook your toppings.

Heat up your pulled pork, then your macaroni and cheese, according to the package. Do the same with the onion rings.

Then, start building your burger. Put the burger on the bottom, followed by the macaroni and cheese, the pulled pork, the onion ring, the pickles, and a healthy drizzle of BBQ sauce. Finish it with the top bun.

Now, let’s chat about multitasking for a minute. You’re going to want to serve this with the accompanying baked beans, macaroni and cheese, and French fries. Each one has a different cooking time and temperature, so you have to do a little bit of juggling and time management to make sure everything comes out of the oven warm.

With the four pack, we got four burgers and all the toppings, plus Buffalo chicken macaroni and cheese, and garlic Parmesan fries. The macaroni and cheese was amazing. I have a mac and cheese obsession, and this definitely filled my need. There were huge slices of chicken, plus a great amount of bleu cheese crumbles on it. I actually ate the leftovers for dinner the next two nights.

We had leftovers of the burgers too, mostly because my mom and I decided to split one.

The fries were so good — but not leftovers. Sad. It came with a canister of the topping, which I could have eaten by the spoonful. If I could buy just that and lather it top on everything I make for the rest of my life, I would be a happy girl.

The 2-person/burger meal is $65 and the four person is $75. For an extra $10, it’s absolutely worth it. That ends up being about $19 a person. That’s almost what you’d spend for a dinner out. Granted, there you wouldn’t have to cook for yourself, but Pete and I did all the cooking, so my parents had a night out. For the two pack, it’s $32.50 each, and that’s a bit more than we generally spend getting burgers and sides at a restaurant here. Remember, though, you’re paying to quality and quantity. You get a lot of food for that price. Also, it’s good food delivered fresh. The company actually only ships Monday through Wednesday so that the product gets to you by Friday. It won’t ship later in the week and risk your fresh, on ice packs, ingredients sitting in a warehouse over the weekend.

To help you out, if you pick up the Whiskey Tango Foxtrot (WTF!) Burgabox, you can save $10 with the code DIVAS10.

I think it’s a perfect housewarming gift idea. It’s a great way for new home owners to break in their new kitchens. I’d say it’s a good idea for when you have company over too, but it depends on your company. You need to invite over some burger lovers with big appetites.

Now, the WTF burger was my top choice, but it’s not the only one Burgabox carries. There are a ton of pre-made boxes you can choose from. If you’re more adventurous, go with the subscription. Once a month, you’ll get a Burgabox delivered straight to your door. Each month has a different theme. March, for example, was Irish-themed with Guinness-soaked meats and Irish potatoes.

For the burger lover, that’s a perfect gift idea.

I was in a coffee shop not too long ago and a tasty sandwich caught my eye: a chicken salad BLT. The sandwich was so tiny, though, and expensive for its size, plus I couldn’t be sure how fresh it actually was.

I passed up on it and decided to buy all the ingredients to make it at home.

I’m not even exaggerating when I say this was the best sandwich I’ve ever eaten. I’m planning on making it weekly; it was that good.

Put a heaping amount of the chicken/mayo mixture onto one of the slices. Close the sandwich and enjoy.

You can actually save the rest of the bacon grease in the fridge and use it instead of olive oil when you’re cooking in the future. I actually don’t do that because I forget about it every time. I always cook other components of the same meal in the bacon grease though, like this.

Invite me to your party and tell me you’re making pigs in a blanket, and you can be certain I will RSVP yes. And then I will eat more than my share of pigs in a blanket because, well, that’s how I roll.

Our New Year’s tradition is having a snack day, and my mom is always in charge of preparing the snacks … which, yes, include pigs in a blanket. This year, though, we weren’t going to see her, which meant I was in charge of making the snacks for me and Pete. Of course, pigs in a blanket were on the menu.

These are also perfect if you’re hosing any upcoming Football Sundays. We host football every week in our garage-turned-home theater, so I’ll definitely be making these again soon.

Meatball Stuffed Peppers Recipe

Meatball Stuffed Peppers Recipe

Looking for a tasty meal to warm you up? Try these Meatball Stuffed Peppers from www.drugstoredivas.net.Pete was cleaning off my car once, when we still lived in New York and it was snowing, when he got the idea that he wanted to make meatball stuffed peppers.

And then, hours later, we were eating his idea.

You can pretty much stuff peppers with anything that will fit inside a pepper (meats, veggies, and rice too). This time around, Pete stuffed them with a variation of his mom’s meatball recipe.

Now, you can use your own meatball recipe for this, but follow our instructions to stuff the peppers.

Meatball Stuffed Peppers

What You’ll Need:

  • 5 peppers (variety of red and green)
  • 2 tablespoons Italian seasoning
  • 5 cloves garlic, chopped
  • Two eggs
  • 1/2 cup Peccorino Romano cheese
  • 1/2 cup bread crumbs
  • 20oz. ground turkey
  • 1 pack sausage
  • Salt
  • Pepper
  • Red pepper flakes

What You’ll Do:

Wash the peppers to remove all the pesticides and germs from other people grabbing them in the store, then cut the tops off, and spoon out the insides.

meatball-stuffed-peppers

Measure out the dry ingredients and garlic.

Cut the casing off the sausage.

meatball-stuffed-peppers

Incorporate the dry ingredients and the meat. Mix until blended (using your hands is the best way to go).

meatball-stuffed-peppersmeatball-stuffed-peppers
Put the meat to the side because now it’s time to season your peppers. Pete always says, “Season every step of the way.” I really thought that was overkill until I started watching the Food Network non-stop and realizing they say the same thing.

So season your peppers with salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes.

Stuff your peppers with the meatball mixture.

Grilled Turkey Burgers With Onions

Grilled Turkey Burgers With Onions

This post is written by my mom, Cathy.

Cave Tools provided an item for this post. Drugstore Divas purchased additional items. All thoughts and opinions belong to Drugstore Divas.

Looking for a new summer recipe? Check out these grilled turkey burgers with onions from www.drugstoredivas.net.One way to save lots of money this summer is by making your own burgers. I know my family practically lives on grilled food all through July and August. Most of the time, we are grilling burgers. You would think that opening a cardboard box of premade burgers is so much easier than getting out the hamburger press, adding ground meat, and pounding out a burger at a time. I have one of those and it is very time consuming to use. Is the time spent going through all the trouble of making the fresh burgers worth the savings? The burgers do taste a lot better than the ones that come out of the box, though. What would you think if I told you that you could have those delicious, freshly made, less expensive burgers in a matter of minutes?

I am so excited to tell you about the silicone burger press that I just got from Cave Tools. I was able to make six 5 oz. burgers in about two minutes. All I needed to do was take two pounds of ground meat (I used turkey) and spread it into the bottom half of the press, put the top cover on, flatten, take the top off. That was it. I had six perfectly square burgers. So easy!

Looking for a new summer recipe? Check out these grilled turkey burgers with onions from www.drugstoredivas.net.

A great feature of the press is that you can freeze your burgers in it so if you are not ready to have your burgers, but ground beef was on sale, you can make your burgers in the burger press and put the whole press in your freezer until you are ready to grill. It could be months until you are ready for your burgers, but you don’t have to worry about freezer burn because each square is an individually sealed compartment that prevents freezer burn.

I made turkey burgers and topped each one with a slice of onion and froze them. We just had them tonight at dinner. My husband grilled them and said that he liked the built in dimple in the press. He said it made the burgers stay flat so that they cooked evenly. And my mom must have told me at least three times how much she was enjoying her burger.

Now if that’s not easy enough, let me tell you about the cleanup. The silicone press is dishwasher safe, which even makes the cleanup a breeze!

I am so happy with my new Cave Tools burger press for making and freezing my burgers. The next time I use it, though, will be when I make soup. I’ll use the press to portion and store my leftovers. I hope my mom has the same reaction to her soup as she did with her burger!
