Devour Philly Cheesesteak Grilled Cheese Review

Devour Philly Cheesesteak Grilled Cheese

We tend to really enjoy Devour’s frozen food here at Freezer Meal Frenzy. In fact, theirĀ Buffalo Chicken Mac & Cheese is one of our favorite frozen meals. So it’s always a bit bittersweet to review something we haven’t tried before. On one hand, we’re glad we get to try something new from Devour, but on the other, we know that every item review means there is one less evour item left for us to review.

Now, we promise we’ll stop getting sappy here because we’ve got business to attend to: today we’re checking out the Devour Philly Cheesesteak Grilled Cheese, and boy are we ever excited to dive in.

This sandwich comes with a crisping tray, so you can fold the box, set the crisping tray on it, then place the two halves of the sandwich on top of that.

Sometimes, we find these sorts of contraptions to be difficult to work with, but this time we had no trouble tearing or folding the box. You can see in the photo above how well the box survived the process — its creases are crisp and its flat surfaces are left unbent. Once you get this all set up, stick in the microwave for two minutes and 40 seconds.

Now, we’ve mentioned this before, but when it comes to Devour’s microwavable sandwiches, the crisping trays don’t seem to do as much good as they do for some other frozen foods. And that’s true here as well. The bread stays dry around the very, very edges, but the rest of it will be moist and even a bit sticky.

Devour wasn’t kidding around when it came to the beef, though. This is real angus beef, and it’s fantastic — it’s rich in flavor and tender, so eating it is a pleasant experience. Don’t expect gristly, chewy meat; this is perfection. We only wish there were more of it.

And the cheese sauce. Dear lord, what can we even say about this cheese sauce? The sauce itself is a cheddar sauce, but it has a blend of cheddar, mozzarella, and provolone in it as well. That means it’s a gooey sauce that also has some stretchiness — it’s the best of both cheese worlds. And the taste is incredible. It has this smokey flavor to it, which enhances the beef phenomenally well.

Added into the mix are fire-roasted green peppers and caramelized onions. These aren’t your itty-bitty little bits either, you’ll find substantial pieces of both in between the slices of bread.

This should come as no surprise to anyone who’s familiar with Devour’s frozen meals, but this is no low-calorie affair. One sandwich has 480 calories (150 from fat). That would be fine for a meal that left us feeling stuffed, but we were still hungry after eating this sandwich.

The Devour Philly Cheesesteak Grilled Cheese tastes great but it’s a little soggy. We think you could probably fix this if you used a toaster oven instead of the microwave, but we can’t say for certain because we haven’t tried it yet. Say, that gives us an idea for a re-review…
