I like many Banquet brand frozen foods and when I spotted Banquet Zesty Smothered Meat Patty Meal in the frozen meals section of my local grocery store, I took notice. I decided to purchase this affordable frozen meal, try it and write an unbiased product review all about my personal experience. Here is what I discovered!
Banquet Zesty Smothered Meat Patty Meal costs a bit over one dollar. That is a very budget friendly price for a frozen meal. This dinner has a meat patty smothered in tomato sauce, onions, green peppers and diced tomatoes. It also has two side dishes, corn and mashed potatoes. All of that sounded pretty good to me. I discovered that this meal has only 310 calories in it. I liked that fact. It also has a nice amount of protein in it. I could not wait to try it!
The preparation of Banquet Zesty Smothered Meat Patty Meal is easy and fast. It is perfect for microwave cooking and that is how I chose to prepare it. I only had to uncover the mashed potato portion of this dinner, cook on high for three minutes, stir potatoes and continue cooking on high for one and a half more minutes. I then let this dinner stand in the microwave for around two minutes before serving. It smelled good!
At first glance, the tomato sauce on this meat patty looked a bit too watery and a bit greasy. When I tasted the meat patty and sauce, it was yummy. I disagree with they zesty claim of this meal, the sauce was not zesty, in my opinion. It was, however, full of peppers, tomatoes and onions. It was also very tomato tasting, perfect for me, actually. I really liked the entree in this meal. The meat patty is tender, flavorful and juicy. The tomato sauce compliments it perfectly, in my opinion. It was delicious and that is hard to believe with a one dollar frozen dinner. The side dishes are tolerable, the mashed potatoes being my favorite part. The side dish portions are small.
Overall, I liked this frozen meal and I will be buying it again. While it was not zesty, it was very tasty. I certainly got my one dollar’s worth out of it. I rate Banquet Zesty Smothered Meat Patty Meal four stars out of five stars. It is different and it gives me a creative fast microwave food choice. This meal does have quite an array of vitamins and minerals in it, also. Wonderful.
