Be sure to read my review of the preparation experience HERE.
I was gifted with 6 entrees for my family to try from Dream Dinners. This post reviews the 3rd and 4th dinners we prepared. For our opinions on the 1st and 2nd dinners, click here. I should add that I loved the ease of Dream Dinners so much that I booked another prep session on 12/9/16 – so excited!!
Swiss Beef Sliders on Mini Pretzel Buns
YUMMM! Just the name of this dinner sounds fun and tasty! Dream Dinners description states, “Seasoned lean ground beef mini sliders topped with a creamy wild mushroom sauce and melted Swiss cheese. Great party food on our Mini Pretzel Buns!” This is a spot-on description of this delicious meal. Not a morsel was left in my family. Now, I must admit that my kiddo did not eat the mushroom sauce, but the rest of us loved it. The recipe stated it would make 6 sliders (2 sliders per serving). We easily made 7 sliders ot of the generous beef portion. And, we served this with the Dream Dinner Sweet Potato Fries, purchased as an additional side dish at check out. Yum!!
Here is a photo of ours versus the company’s final product:
- Price per serving: $6.45

Golden Shrimp with Parmesan Risotto
I think this might be my favorite so far…. we made this on a Friday night & ate it while watching a movie on Netflix. The most costly dinner we were given, but that is due to the shrimp. Generous portions of shrimp & risotto were included. The meal came together easily and quickly, just as described. I served this with roasted fresh green beans, simply tossed with a little olive oil and garlic-herb Mrs. Dash mixture. My family gobbled this up in no time!
Again, comparing the company’s beautiful picture to our reality –
- Price per serving: $7.02
