All-American Works Burger

grill-seasoned ground beef with the works (tomato, cheddar cheese, sliced onions) & classic condiments

We don’t know about you, but the number one food that we crave after a long trip in the backcountry is a good-ole hamburger.

With that in mind, we designed a ¼-lb seasoned burger wrap that's lightweight, uses less than ¼-cup of water to rehydrate and tastes great!

Wrapped in a BYO-tortilla and topped off with “The Works!” [cheddar cheese, ripe red tomatoes and sweet white onions]; slathered in packets of ketchup, mayonnaise, mustard and pickle relish – you won't have to wait to savor the flavor of a "burger."

Why wait until after the trip to get that burger you're craving? "This actually tastes like it came off the grill," says one tester. The meat is a little crumbly but not dry; wrap it in a tortilla (BYO) with ketchup, mayo, mustard and relish (included in separate packets, so yes, you can have it your way). Testers also really liked this company's deli-style Roast Beef Wrap.

frequently asked questions

What is Gluten Conscious?
 
Gluten Conscious is a term we use to describe a product that is prepared with gluten free ingredients; however, it is not prepared in a gluten-free environment. While we are careful to avoid cross-contamination, it is possible that trace amounts of gluten may be present due to the use of gluten in our facility.
Why is a Cook–in–Cozy™ recommended?
 

We recommend that all of our hot meals spend time "steep-cooking" while snuggled in a Cook-in-Cozy. We find this method promotes a more consistent temperature and steady cook time for Cook-in-Bag preparation; and results in a better serving temperature for your meal. When not in use, our Cook-in-Cozy folds away nicely in your pack for storage and weighs in at only 1.4oz.

    Exceptional! My favorite! After having backpacked for almost 40 years, I have finally found great tasting trail meals. This All American Works Burger is packed with great burger flavor! I absolutely love this meal. FYI, I mixed all the condiments and the cheese into the meat pouch after steeping it. Stirred it up and dished it out of the pouch into the tortilla. Truly an exceptional backpacking meal!

    Ok, so this was my first time trying any dehydrated meals other then my own. I have to say, the burger works was really really good. It hit the spot and was simple to make and used very minimal water, which i liked. It was a bit salty yes. If i was banging out the miles and sweating a lot, then i wouldn't mind. But for short distance hiking, this is a concern as i dont need all the sodium. Why not create a few low sodium meals? Im sure they would sell just as quick, if not quicker. Besides that, it tastes great and yes i would eat it again, just cautiously.

    The All-American Works Burger really hit the spot after a long day of hiking. I was skeptical about a burger with your BYO tortilla, but it really was good. Of all the meals I purchased, this one was the best.

    This is my son and eyes all time favorite meal while backpacking! Super easy to make. Cannot describe the flavors in enough words. It's a little early like eating a Burger off of the grill. We just bought more for an upcoming section hike. And it's very tempting to not eat it between now and then.

      Ok, so this was my first time trying any dehydrated meals other then my own. I have to say, the burger works was really really good. It hit the spot and was simple to make and used very minimal water, which i liked. It was a bit salty yes. If i was banging out the miles and sweating a lot, then i wouldn't mind. But for short distance hiking, this is a concern as i dont need all the sodium. Why not create a few low sodium meals? Im sure they would sell just as quick, if not quicker. Besides that, it tastes great and yes i would eat it again, just cautiously.

      The All-American Works Burger really hit the spot after a long day of hiking. I was skeptical about a burger with your BYO tortilla, but it really was good. Of all the meals I purchased, this one was the best.

      This is my son and eyes all time favorite meal while backpacking! Super easy to make. Cannot describe the flavors in enough words. It's a little early like eating a Burger off of the grill. We just bought more for an upcoming section hike. And it's very tempting to not eat it between now and then.

    Why wait until after the trip to get that burger you're craving? "This actually tastes like it came off the grill," says one tester. The meat is a little crumbly but not dry; wrap it in a tortilla (BYO) with ketchup, mayo, mustard and relish (included in separate packets, so yes, you can have it your way). Testers also really liked this company's deli-style Roast Beef Wrap.

    frequently asked questions

    What is Gluten Conscious?
     
    Gluten Conscious is a term we use to describe a product that is prepared with gluten free ingredients; however, it is not prepared in a gluten-free environment. While we are careful to avoid cross-contamination, it is possible that trace amounts of gluten may be present due to the use of gluten in our facility.
    Why is a Cook–in–Cozy™ recommended?
     

    We recommend that all of our hot meals spend time "steep-cooking" while snuggled in a Cook-in-Cozy. We find this method promotes a more consistent temperature and steady cook time for Cook-in-Bag preparation; and results in a better serving temperature for your meal. When not in use, our Cook-in-Cozy folds away nicely in your pack for storage and weighs in at only 1.4oz.

I absolutely love this meal. FYI, I mixed all the condiments and the cheese into the meat pouch after steeping it. Stirred it up and dished it out of the pouch into the tortilla.
