Melty Monterey Jack Burgers
with Red Onion Jam and Zucchini Fries
I’ve been pretty excited to get a second box from Hello Fresh. I knew the burgers would be a good, simple meal. Everyone in our house likes cheeseburgers. This twist on a classic did not disappoint. Continue reading
with Garlic Rice and Green Beans
Lily loves soy, so this Adobo sauce was a perfect addition to the chicken. She also likes rice, so it was a good meal. Continue reading
I tried Hello Fresh when I got $30 off my first box.
We had Maple Glazed Chicken and Crispy Frico Burgers.
The $39.92 for the first box, with two meals, that’s not a bad price. It was a good meal at just under $5 a serving. I can justify that a few days a week.
However, the $69.92 makes it $8.74 a serving. For a family of four on a budget, that’s a little pricey for 2 meals. That could easily be 3-4 meals if I did all of the meal planning.
You are paying for convenience. Healthy foods tend to cost more. These are things to keep in mind when subscribing to Hello Fresh.
I also liked the cooking lesson aspect. It wasn’t just following a recipe, but the step-by-step instructions on how to make the sauces and plan them to make sure everything is done and hot at the same time. Something to keep in mind!
Will I order again?
Yes, but it won’t be a weekly thing. I can’t justify the cost. However, when I know that we have a crazy week coming up, I will definitely have a Hello Fresh box delivered. All of the meal planning is done, and the prep is minimal. I real meal, on the table, in 30-45 minutes with fresh ingredients. Yes, please!
Please Note: I paid for this Hello Fresh box. I was not compensated for this review of our first time using their service. If you have any questions, please contact me or see My Disclosure Policy.
Crispy Frico Burgers
with Caramelized Onion Jam & Roasted Broccoli
This was our second Hello Fresh meal.
I have been really looking forward to making these burgers. Though I find cooking ground beef to be intimidating, I was hoping this meal would help alleviate some of that.
with Sweet Potato Mash and Green Beans
We received our Hello Fresh shipment, and I couldn’t wait to use it.
The first thing I did was to set out all of the ingredients.
- Green beans
- Sweet potatoes
- Maple syrup
- Balsamic vinegar
