Nothing beats a home cooked meal, but sometimes that just isn't possible. So what's the next best thing after some restaurant takeout? Why it's frozen dinners of course! Frozen dinners, or TV dinners if you prefer, have been popular for decades, but some are much better than others.
Hungry-Man hit grocery shelves back in 1973 with the promise of providing larger portions than the typical frozen dinner, and while the Hungry-Man Smokin Backyard Barbeque isn't lacking when it comes to portion sizes, everything else about it is absolutely awful.
The Hungry-Man Smokin Backyard Barbeque has two kinds of meat: a grilled chicken patty that's glazed and a pork patty drenched in chipotle barbecue sauce. Both of these meats are disgusting. The chicken patty itself has no flavor and the glaze has a chemical aftertaste, while the pork patty tastes like a decaying McRib, with a chipotle barbecue sauce that's so sweet and inauthentic that it's much worse than any grocery store barbecue sauce you could possibly find.
Worst of all, while the potatoes and corn are relatively decent, the brownie will add to your disappointment.

  • OK. Got to say. I love the.lean cuisine l'orange chicken with rice. (There are other flavours of the same combo). Used to work nights in a hospital and picking up anything avail from self serve cafeteria is never a good idea. So not a diet person but the taste was excellent and it was a nice, light, low prep meal. Recently found the healthy choice chicken and rice combos and those are pretty decent taste as well. The tradrr Joe's i would like 5o try but we don't have access where I live.

  • The last time Stouffers Lasagna was good was way back in the 80s. All these companies are so hell bent on making more profits, they never stop to realize that they can't keep exchanging good ingredients for bad. I can't see them going any further as they are practically inedible now. If only they knew that if they spent a little, they would see the stuff flying off the shelves!

  • Most frozen meals these days are decent. When it comes to vegan try Amy's burritos, cedar lane etc. Stouffers Mac n cheese are the best. There is a new lasagna oh that is named Michael angelos an is better than most. You may be surprised how good many of the store brands are!

  • Heading out to my market. On my list? Grass-fed ground beef, canned mild green peppers, a little good cheese & La Victoria green enchilada sauce. Takes less time than a frozen meal-cheaper, controlled sodium & NO sugar. Hey- - how lazy could this 73-yr-old married 50 yrs Lady get??😺😺😺 BTW:: MICROWAVE AINT FIT FOR ANY BELLY.

  • everybody switched to ground meats w/ fillers as a way to keep prices and thus inflation numbers lower. same reason portions are always getting smaller. a lot of people on SS have checks indexed to inflation numbers. low inflation means keeping the checks small. Micheal angelos is still high quality. lean quisines have some decent stuff. Now ill watch the rest of the vid and see if they agree.
