Philly Gourmet brand frozen beef burgers

Philly Gourmet is a very good brand of frozen beef burgers. These burgers are packaged in a black box, and it can be found in the frozen meat section of your supermarket. As with many frozen beef burger products, thawing first is not necessary before cooking.

A box of these burgers can be taken straight from the freezer, opened, and the burger patties separated from the dividing paper. You might want to rinse the burgers, as I do, and then pat them dry with paper towels before adding them to a pan that's sizzling with oil.

Add additional spices to the burger patties, as you desire.

  • I like to add a little bit of salt, black pepper, garlic, and red pepper flakes.
  • Cook the patties for eight minutes on one side; use a spatula to flip them over, and cook them for eight minutes on the other side to get great medium-well burgers. These beef patties are delicious and juicy.

At my home, I like to use this brand to make bacon cheeseburgers for the family. (Sometimes, I'll use other brands such as Bubba burgers as well.)

  • After the burger patties are cooked, I melt cheese on top (cheddar usually) and add cooked bacon.
  • The bacon that I like to buy is microwavable, but a batch of the bacon would need several minutes in the microwave (around 12 minutes), layered between paper towels to be fully cooked. Cooking time in the microwave for the bacon averages approximately one minute per slice of bacon.

Many brands of delicious and fresh-tasting bread can go well with the burgers. Most recently, I have enjoyed the Ball Park brand hamburger buns. On occasion when we have burgers and hot dogs together, everyone gets one burger and one hot dog. I also purchase Ball Park brand hot dog buns, and my favorite hot dogs to purchase and prepare are Nathan’s. We are sure to have plenty of condiments on hand, such as ketchup, mustard, and relish. Optionally, you might even want to spread a little bit of mayonnaise on each hamburger or hot dog bun.

Beef burger with bacon and cheese

It would be a good idea to wrap the burgers in foil

The photos included in this article illustrate how the frozen burgers are prepared at home. Wrapping the fully assembled burgers (seasoned cooked burger, bun, cheese, bacon) in foil is always a good idea especially if you do not plan to eat them immediately. In the foil, the burgers will remain warm, moist and juicy for a while and not get dried out. After you have wrapped the beef burgers with bacon and cheese in foil, you can even place them on a tray and put them in the oven, closing the oven door but not turning on the oven, for a short period of time until the burgers are ready to be eaten. This also works well if not everyone in the family is home at the same time or ready to be served the meal at the same time for whatever the reason. While it is ideal for everyone to gather together around the table at the same time, for lunch or dinner especially on a weekend, that might not always be the case.

Bacon makes it better.

Lots of possible toppings for your burger

I highly recommend shredded iceberg lettuce and tomato slices for adding to your burger only when ready to eat. You can keep the lettuce and tomato on hand and be ready to wash and drain them and add them to your burger when you unwrap it from the foil and are ready to eat. Once at a restaurant, I ate a burger that even included fried egg and avocado. Those fried egg and avocado additions were very complimentary, delicious. After the memorable one I had in the restaurant, I did sometimes add such toppings to the versions I made at home as well. So remember, there are lots and lots of types of toppings that you can potentially add to your burger, making it an even bigger and more filling meal. The possibilities are pretty endless.

The website for Philly Gourmet, phillygourmet.com, states that the business has been family-owned and operated since 1960. They pride themselves on using 100% pure beef for the patties.

The specific product that I like is the 32-ounce (2-pound) box containing 100% pure beef patties. In this box, there are 8 patties, each of which is a quarter pound.

Wrapping the prepared burgers in foil helps to keep the juicy and delicious burgers from drying out.

Nutritional information and where to buy

I purchase my Philly Gourmet products at Food Lion. In my area, these burgers can also be purchased at Harris Teeter, Lowes or Walmart Neighborhood Market.

Nutritional facts: One patty contains 8% of your daily value of iron, 19 g of protein, 40 mg of sodium, 18 g of total fat (28% daily value), 7 g of saturated fat (35% daily value) and 0 trans fat. If you are watching what you eat and in the interest of avoiding overindulgence, you might want to use the suggested toppings of cheese, bacon or fried egg very sparingly or you can go ahead and overindulge and pledge to do better the next day!

Philly Gourmet beef burgers are very good. If you decide to purchase them, I hope you enjoy!

        no need to wash and dry, no need for oil. Plenty of grease in the burger.
