Gott’s Cheeseburger Kits are a movable feast
Gott’s Roadside, the Northern California roadside eatery that puts a modern twist on American classics, is now selling its Cheeseburger Kit through Goldbelly’s collection of iconic American restaurant favorites.
“The Cheeseburger Kit we created for Goldbelly contains the same ingredients as the burger we make in our restaurants, along with cooking and burger assembly instructions — right down to our picnic-style packaging and wrapping,” Gott’s Culinary Director Jennifer Rebman said.
The kit can be ordered as a four-pack or an eight-pack and includes everything the recipient needs to bring the Gott’s burger experience into the home or to send as a gift.
The kit, which is shipped overnight, contains Niman Ranch beef patties, Panorama Bakery’s classic egg buns, American cheese slices, Gott’s Secret Sauce, iceberg lettuce, tomatoes, pickles and a mix of kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, all packaged in a Gott’s box.
The four-pack sells for $99 and the eight-pack for $149, including shipping. For best results, burgers should be cooked within one to three days after arrival. To order: goldbelly.com/gotts-roadside
