Tailgate Food Safety Q&A

Tailgate season is an awesome opportunity to show off your impeccable grilling skills and spread the word about Passanante’s Home Food Service’s unbeatable meats and veggies. We know you always want to be the life of the party with delicious and healthy foods to serve your friends and family, which is why we think tailgate food preparation is so important.

A beginner’s mistake as simple as reusing a half cup of marinade to baste steaks can be the difference between a day you’ll always remember and a day you’d love to forget. The USDA is a fantastic resource for food safety tips, recall announcements, and even Podcasts and videos. We found this helpful Tailgate Food Safety Q&A and thought it would be a great thing to share with all of our foodie friends.

We hope you all have a great weekend cheering on your favorite teams and are certain that paying attention to food preparation details will help you get on your way to a great tailgate!

5 Tips for Grilling up the Perfect Burger

The Perfect Burger

At Passanante’s Home Food Service we know that utilization of the best products available is central to every memorable meal, but any food connoisseur knows that even the best foods can be reduced to average if the preparation isn’t on point. Having said that, grilling the perfect burger is an art form. Anyone can simply grill a burger, but it requires a whole ‘nother set of skills to prepare one with just the right amount of pink in the middle, the perfect level of delicious juiciness, and the critically important ideal patty size to fit the bun. We’ve gathered up a handful of tips from the pros and are gifting them to the world in an effort to reduce the frequency of average and below-average burgers. Enjoy & Happy Eating!

  1. Pack it loose & Make a dimple: Form the burger loose, and round out the edges. Finish it off with a thumb-sized dimple. This will prevent the burgers from turning into a ball.
  2. Use High Quick Heat: Getting a good sear on the outside, will keep all those good juices in the inside.
  3. Hold the Press! Resist the urge to flatten the burger with a spatula. Let it cook for 4-5 minutes then give it a flip.
  4. Minimize the Flip: The burger pros’ we see at the competitions flip only once, usually when they see the juices flowing on the top. After that, cook it for another 2-3 minutes, and you should be good to go.
  5. Let it Rest: Much like a good steak, take it off the grille and let it rest. This will make the juices saturate the meat, and prevent some over eager mouth burns.

Remember with Passanante’s we’re all about options!

Jumbo Steak Burger: This delicious 6 oz burger is our staple. Real cuts of NY Strip, Sirloin, RibEye, and Filet, make this a standard for any cookout.
