Father’s Day Gift Idea: Omaha Steaks!

Burger Fathers Day Gift Idea: Omaha Steaks!

 

I received an Omaha Steaks Exclusive Pack for The Home Depot & compensation for the purpose of this review. This post was made possible by Mom Spark Media. Thoughts are my own.

Every year about the time blooms start to form on all the trees, men everywhere begin to get excited. Excited about summer, sun, and fun? Maybe. Excited about vacations? Could be. But mostly because…it’s grilling season. Ah yes, the time when testosterone gets to run wild while the burgers, dogs, and steaks grill to perfection on a warm summer’s day.

It’s quite the thrill. I gotta admit, the take over of dinner gives me a break so I’m not complaining! Hey, I might even do the dishes. We love to grill. I’m pretty sure that just the mention of that word gets my husband so excited that he could frolic through the wildflowers. Is that true for all men? Pretty sure that’s a yes.

The picture above is the epitome of successful meal during grilling season. Aside from a big, tasty steak of course.

Omaha Steaks Package Fathers Day Gift Idea: Omaha Steaks!

 

I was so lucky to be able to try out this super yummy Omaha Steaks package. I’m telling you, this is the ultimate idea for Father’s Day seeing as it has everything a dad would want for summer grilling.

When you order the Omaha Steaks Exclusive Pack for The Home Depot, this is what’s included:

  • 2 (8 oz.) Boneless Strips
  • 2 (5 oz.) Top Sirloins
  • 8 (3 oz.) Polish Sausages
  • 8 (3 oz.) Italian Sausages
  • 4 (4 oz.) Omaha Steaks Burgers
  • 4 (3 oz.) Gourmet Jumbo Franks
  • $3.oo Coupon off Kingsford Charcoal at Home Depot
  • PLUS, one $10 Home Depot Gift Card

That is a lot of meat. Like, a lot. It’s regularly $175, but is on sale for $69.99! Savings of $105.01. Plus, they arrive in 3-5 days so even if you’re shopping for dad last minute you can still get in on this.

Father’s Day is June 15th, 2014!

Ordering was really easy. The whole process took me less than 5 minutes and my package arrived just 3 days after ordering!

The coupon for Kingsford Charcoal at Home Depot is a nice touch since many men prefer the taste of charcoal grilling. You can buy Kingsford Charcoal at participating Home Depots. You can check here for a list of participating stores.

Now better than ever, Kingsford® Charcoal features Sure Fire Grooves®. These deep, wide and long grooves mean the briquets light easier and heat faster — while burning just as long as before. As always, each briquet is made with natural ingredients and real wood, resulting in the authentic smoky flavor that Kingsford has long been known for.  Visit grilling.com for additional recipes.

The contents of the Omaha Steaks package were all packaged very well. They come in the cooler you see above wrapped with dry ice to keep them frozen for a long period of time. It’s best to freeze them pretty quickly after they arrive so try to make sure you’ll be home on the estimated delivery date.

Thawing Burgers Fathers Day Gift Idea: Omaha Steaks!

One of my favorite things about ordering from Omaha Steaks is that they vacuum seal their packages. They are SO easy to thaw. We got all ready to grill out today and realized that they were still frozen. Then I remembered how easy it was to thaw these and I was instantly relieved.

I placed the burgers (still in their vacuum-sealed packages) in cool water for about 35 minutes and we were ready to go! If you’re using charcoal then it might take that much time to prepare the grill! We did this with the humongous jumbo franks we got too and it worked for them as well.

After thawing them out, they grilled up beautifully.

Grilled Dinner1 Fathers Day Gift Idea: Omaha Steaks!

We had some leftover macaroni and cheese that combined with the burgers, made for such a tasty lunch! There’s nothing like a good grill out!

Dad Bite Fathers Day Gift Idea: Omaha Steaks!

The quality of the meat Omaha Steaks offers is really good in my opinion. We’ve always liked their burgers and steaks. Mom tested and dad approved!

If you’d like to grab one of these Omaha Steaks packages for dad this Father’s Day, head over to OmahaSteaks.com/HomeDepot and grab not only some fabulous meat, but also a Home Depot gift card and discount on Kingsford charcoal!

Cilantro Salsa Burgers

Cilantro Salsa Burgers 3 Cilantro Salsa Burgers

It’s summer time and there’s no stopping the men and their grills. Am I right? It’s a right of passage. And can we really complain? The chance to sit back and relax while watching someone else do all the cooking for once? I think I’ll take that deal.

During the summer we try to grill at least once a week. It’s nice for the whole family to get outside and enjoy summer nights playing together while daddy gets dinner ready. Memories are being made. Of course, grilling goes hand in hand with a very simple (yet taken seriously) dish, burgers. The oh-so-meaty, versatile, and flavorful burger. My husband would consider himself a connoisseur of burgers. And he has a right to. His most favorite food of all time and he’s eaten his way in burgers across the country.

One of the ingredients in most burger recipes is the binder, an egg. Have you ever used mayonnaise instead? It’s very tasty! A simple ingredient that can take your burger from boring to bam.

Hellmann’s is celebrating their 100th anniversary! Can you believe that they have been around that long? You know that a product is good when it’s been around for that many years and people still enjoy it today. As part of Hellman’s 100th celebration, they are helping to provide 1 MILLION meals to Feeding America to fight against hunger nationwide. They are also teaming up with celebrity chef Mario Batali (I’m a fan!) to showcase classic Hellmann’s recipes with a modern twist.

In fact, they have a contest going right now to give YOU a chance to win a trip to New York City with a seat at the World’s Longest Picnic Table celebrating Hellmann’s 100th anniversary. You simply have to make Mario’s twist on Hellmann’s classic recipes your own. The Create A Recipe With Mario facebook app has more details about the contest. These are simple and classic recipes, it would be a cinch to enter!

I was stoked to give it a try so I created these Cilantro Salsa Burgers.

Theses are the ingredients. I have to admit that I’ve never considered putting salsa on my burger, but I love trying new things so I was all for it. The cilantro and lime really bring a new and spin on your every day burger. This is a refreshing burger to say the least!

Getting your hands dirty is the best part! Or the worst, depending on who you are. I consider this fun and blissful. 🙂

Mario used ground chuck for his burger, but I used ground turkey to make them a tad bit more healthy.

Viola! Easy peazy lemon sqeezey. My husband gave his burger stamp of approval so you can be sure they are good. I hope that you’ll give these a try. And I also hope that you’ll enter Hellmann’s 100th Anniversary Contest to win the trip to New York City by creating your own twist.

White Bean Cheddar Burgers

Happy 4th White Bean Cheddar Burgers

First of all, Happy 4th of July! I love summer and the 4th of July always tells me it’s definitely summer! Well that and the ridiculous sweat provoking heat. Either way, today is a great day to celebrate our independence and enjoy our freedom. If you got the day off, enjoy your time! And if you didn’t well shame on your boss. 😉

What better thing to cook today than a burger, right?

I tell you, this cooking stuff has its highs and lows. I get a lot of ideas all the time and it’s like the gears in my brain start turning trying to think of ways to make something new or different. Just the other night I made something that was not very good. The idea of it was brilliant, but the execution was not so much. Hubby said it was good and even took the leftovers for lunch the next day, even when I insisted on chunking them. But He was just being sweet. I’m sure of it. 🙂

While undoubtedly, I have some cooking failures lows, I also have some things that end up really great! Today’s recipe is one of them.

You may never think about a black bean burger again. This my friends is my absolute favorite new burger. I saw mention of the words “white” bean burger the other day in passing. Without even looking at the recipe, I knew that I could create one similar to my black bean burger but creamier, as white beans tend to be. Normally I kinda jot down what I might put in the recipe, but this time I decided to wait until it was time to start making them to jot down the ingredients. You know, a little bit of this and a little bit of that.

What my brain (and food processor) produced was yummy y’all! I’m so excited about these burgers! Not only are they made with the creamiest beans, they are loaded with cheese and even have an added bonus- mushrooms! If you’re not a mushroom person, please don’t write these burgers off just yet. I’m not a huge mushroom fan either. You cannot even tell that they are there. It’s a great way to get the kids to eat them without suspecting a thing.

Take a break from the ordinary and enjoy a meaty white bean and cheddar burger!
Ingredients
  • 1 (19 oz) Can Cannelini Beans, Rinsed and Drained
  • 1/4 c. Mushrooms, chopped
  • 1/4 c. Bread Crumbs
  • 1 Egg White
  • 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 1/2 c. Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • 1 Tsp Minced Garlic
  • 1/4 Tsp Salt
  • Dash of Pepper
  • Dash of Onion Powder
Instructions
  1. Place all ingredients in a food processor and pulse until combined well.
  2. Heat olive oil in a skillet over medium high heat. Form “meat” into 4 patties and place into skillet.
  3. Cook for about 4-7 minutes on each side until browned.
  4. Serve with your favorite toppings!
Notes

I put green onions on top of my burger and it went really well. If you like green onions, it would be a fantastic addition to add 2 tbsp chopped green onion to your burger “meat”!

I used cannelini beans, but you could also use any other white bean such as great northern beans or even pinto beans.

I used jarred mushroom pieces or you could use canned.

If you are concerned about what a “dash” is, then just use about 1/8 tsp.
