The weather has been warming up a bit and this has left me yearning for summer. While I don’t particularly like the excessive heat, I do love the fact that we can bring out the grill and dip into the garden for fresh vegetables. Even though it’s not quite time for the grill, I did decide to whip up some stove-top burgers and fries for a casual dinner this week.

Kraft Foods recently sent me a package full of new products, one of those being the new Kraft Fresh Take. It’s a pre-packaged assortment of spices, crumbs and even cheese. Located in the refrigerated section of your grocery store there are 6 flavor varieties that includes: Southwest Three Cheese, Savory Four Cheese, Rosemary & Roasted Garlic, Italian Parmesan, Chili Lime & Panko and Cheddar Jack & Bacon.

We actually tried the Italian Parmesan variety a few weeks ago on some baked chicken. Truth be told, I wasn’t thrilled. The flavor was bland, boring and left me disappointed. But seeing as there’s quite a few varieties we decided to give the Fresh Take product line another chance with the Savory Four Cheese blend in these burgers. The flavor difference was a complete turnaround.

The Savory Four Cheese is perfect in the beef and gave it the flavor boost I was really looking for. In every bite there was a little burst of melted cheese that really took a plain burger to the next level.

The only thing that could have made this meal even better would be if it was summer and I could grill the burgers with a fresh slice of garden tomato.

    Found this web site while ‘hunting’ for more Kraft Fresh Takes Savory For Cheese for Beef or Turkey.. I first found this at my local Kroger store in Arlington, right after I saw this on TV…Love Love Love this one… My entire family loves this flavor..makes great meat balls, grill or bakes, meat loaf, and best of all, Grill hamberger patties……. they are the very best. no matter how big or mid or small the pattie is it good, real good. When I find them, I purchase almost all of the packages, as now its July 2013 and I can’t find them in any local chain grocy store, not even walmart. I m not sure where you are located, maybe you have them in your area. They are great. I’m down to my very last package of 10 i found in Walmart in Gainsville, Tx over 4th of July.. If you have them let me know………….
