Summer BBQ Made Easy with Schwan’s Meat Sampler Packs

With Summer comes entertaining and plenty of barbeques.  We are never good at scheduling gatherings and such, it seems always to be impromptu with us. I like to keep certain grocery items on hand at home for such last-minute invitations, like the Schwan’s Meat Sampler Pack. I just received this sampler pack and rolls to review last week for this post.

Grill it up with Schwan’s Meat Sampler Pack

The Schwan’s Meat Sampler Pack is perfect for entertaining or just having on hand for family dinners because of the variety. It includes 4 unbreaded chicken breasts, 4 Black Angus burgers, and 8 slices of fully cooked bacon.  It is the perfect sampling to make anyone happy whether they want grilled chicken or burgers on the grill.


Grilled Chicken Kabobs Recipe

The Schwan’s website has tasty recipe ideas too. I tried the Grilled Chicken Caesar Salad Kabobs recipe minus the salad part. I added it as part of the main entree for our cookout. It is so simple to make and so delicious. Using a wooden skewer, I placed cut-up chicken pieces, precooked bacon, and tomatoes.

Since this wasn’t our main course, I only used 2 chicken breasts and 4 slices of bacon for the below kabobs. It was enough for my family to each have 1 kabob. If I were entertaining, I would make at least 2-3 per person.

Nothing says summer BBQ fun like kabobs!  I like that using Schwan’s, it is easy to make as little or as many as you’d like since the chicken is individually wrapped and the bacon is pre-cooked. It saves time and is so convenient.

For the original recipe, you would place the kabobs on a bed of lettuce and topped with dressing and shaved Parmesan. It would a delicious lunch or dinner.

Bacon Burgers

With the Schwan’s Meat Sampler Pack, we also grilled bacon burgers. The burger patties are huge weighing in at 5.3 oz each – I can already tell you that I couldn’t finish my burger although it was super delicious!  We also tried a product we’ve never tried before, the New York Style Kaiser Rolls. I hardly give the bread I put burgers on much thought – a bun is a bun, right? Apparently not! The Schwan’s New York Style Kaiser Rolls were a huge hit with my family! They come frozen with 8 to a bag.
Simply thaw and bake in your own for hot, fresh rolls that are crunchy on the outside and soft and delicious on the inside!
It sure did make our bacon burgers amazing, restaurant quality! We were all pleasantly surprised at how much the rolls added to the bacon burger experience and just how good they were.

It was so huge that my 6 year old daughter couldn’t get her mouth open wide enough to take a bite! ha!

My 8 year old son took a stab at it and enjoyed a little more than 1/2 of the bacon burger before his tummy was stuffed! Next time, I’ll cut one in half for my kids – and probably myself because they make huge, hearty meals!


We thoroughly enjoyed our barbeque of bacon burgers and chicken bacon kabobs – it was quite a bit of meat but we balanced it out with fruit and veggies. 🙂 For a party, offering both burgers and chicken can easily make anyone happy. Adding bacon to either the chicken or burger makes it extra delicious.
