During an ethanol, cheese & local fruit run to Costco last week, I picked up these Quick'N Eat! Fully Cooked Angus Beef Patties, made by Lopez Foods, Oklahoma City OK. 12 patties for $10. It's been years since I had Angus beef at home, so I though "less than a dollar a patty... that's not bad." Well, it's not that good either.
They're kinda bland. Yes, they're relatively cheap and very convenient - pop them in the microwave and irradiate them, and they're sizzling hot and ready to eat, but after trying to melt several cheeses on it, covering it with various leftover sauces, and trying my best to keep an open mind, I cannot recommend these pre-cooked patties.
If I had a house full of hungry teenagers, or various progeny or party goers to feed, or I was starving, this could possibly be an option. But for the discerning pallet, they are rather lack luster. Good beef should speak for itself, without a plethora of sauces or cheeses being required to make it mouthwatering. These are more or less, just digestible protein filler.
