Cereal and milk for breakfast is one thing, but cereal and ice cream is another. It's way better. Er, freakier. We don't play around with our monthly frappe specials, and this on is sure to give you a [Rice Krispies] treat. Here's how to make it at home. That is, if you're crazy enough not to be running to one of the restaurants to suck one down.

Ingredients:

  • 8 oz. vanilla ice cream
  • 6 oz. whole milk
  • vanilla frosting
  • 1/2 cup Fruity Pebbles
  • 1 Rice Krispies treat
  • strawberry puree
  • whipped cream

Directions:

  1.  Coat top two inches of a pint glass with vanilla frosting. Don't be afraid to lay it on thick. Toss some Fruity Pebbles on a plate, then roll frosted glass onto sprinkles to coat rim. Repeat if necessary. The more, the better!
  2. In a blender, whip ice cream, milk, and a handful of Fruity Pebbles. Blend for 1 minute or until smooth. 
  3. Drizzle inside of pint glass with strawberry syrup. Pour frappe in glass.
  4. Spread vanilla frosting on one side of the Rice Krispies treat. Roll onto Fruity Pebbles to coat. Place on top of the glass, or use a skewer to add it as a garnish. Top with whipped cream and extra Fruity Pebbles. Slurp, slurp, ENJOY!!!

We're running this special through May. Do NOT miss it!!

Welcome to The Peep Show...

...where all your bunny fantasies come true.

Wait. Get your mind out of the gutter. We're talking about a #freakfrappe!!!

Throughout the month of April, we're serving up something you'll definitely want to peep on.

The Peep Show #FreakFrappe

What's inside? An Angel Food Cake Frappe with chocolate syrup, rainbow sprinkles, jelly beans, and a few of those bunnies people go nuts for. And because no frappe can be served without a massive slab of something sweet, we threw a piece of Angel Food Cake on top. It wouldn't be a Boston Burger Company #freakfrappe without a touch of outrageous.

Sip on this all month long for only 11 bucks. Or try and make it yourself. Then send us pics because we want to peep on yours too.

Ingredients:

  • 8 oz. vanilla ice cream
  • 6 oz. whole milk
  • 2 tbsp. of Angel Food Cake mix
  • chocolate syrup
  • vanilla frosting
  • rainbow sprinkles
  • a slice of Angel Food Cake
  • jelly beans
  • marshmallow peeps
  • whipped cream

Directions:

  1.  Coat top two inches of a pint glass with vanilla frosting. Don't be afraid to lay it on thick. Toss some rainbow sprinkles on a plate, then roll frosted glass onto sprinkles to coat rim. Repeat if necessary. The more sprinkles, the better!
  2. In a blender, whip ice cream, milk, and Angel Food Cake mix. Blend for 1 minute or until smooth. 
  3. Drizzle inside of pint glass with chocolate syrup. Pour frappe in glass, leaving about 1/4 inch unfilled. Fill remainder with whipped cream.
  4. Place a slice of Angel Food Cake on top of glass. Top cake with whipped cream. Garnish cake and plate with marshmallow peeps and jelly beans. Drizzle with more chocolate syrup. Slurp, slurp, ENJOY!!!

Move Over Shamrock Shake - THIS Is The Ultimate Boozy St. Patrick's Day #FreakFrappe

Today's post brought to you today by Christina Orso, Marketing Director, food blogger, and chocolate connoisseur.

If you're a fan of Boston Burger Company, you already know we take what ordinary people do and make it bigger. Bigger, better, and tastier. Have you SEEN our burgers? They're large.

Last year we took it upon ourselves to increase the size of something else. No, no, get your head out of the gutter. We're talking about milkshakes. Frappes if you're in New England -- get it right before you order one. Whether you're vanilla or you're chocolate, or somewhere in the twisted middle, we have a frappe for you. 

And while we have our core list of frappes at all three restaurants, we also have a rotating monthly special that'll make your eyes bug out. You'll stare at it in disbelief. You'll drool a little. Then you'll hop on the T and make your way over because there's just no way you're not tasting this.

Our March special is what we consider a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. With a hell of a lot more green than that meteorological phenomenon people seem to lose their shit over. Get your tastebuds ready, because we're about to Shamrock Your World.

Ingredients:

  • 8 oz. vanilla ice cream
  • 6 oz. whole milk
  • 5 peppermint patties
  • mint-flavored vodka, if you like to get weird
  • chocolate syrup
  • green food coloring
  • green frosting (or use vanilla with 2 drops of green food coloring mixed in)
  • Lucky Charms cereal
  • green sugar/sprinkles
  • a slice of Irish Cream Mousse Cake
  • Whipped cream

Directions:

  1.  Coat top two inches of a pint glass with green frosting. Don't be afraid to lay it on thick. Pour some Lucky Charms onto a flat plate then roll frosted rim around to coat with cereal. Add pieces by hand if necessary. Layer it up!!
  2. In a blender, whip ice cream, milk, peppermint patties, 2 drops of green food coloring, and booze if you decided to get weird. Blend for 1 minute or until smooth. 
  3. Drizzle inside of pint glass with chocolate syrup. Pour frappe in glass, leaving about 1/4 inch unfilled. Fill remainder with whipped cream.
  4. Place a slice of Irish Cream Mousse Cake. Add more whipped cream because why not. Sprinkle with sugar and drizzle with more chocolate syrup. Slurp, slurp, ENJOY!!!

Hint hint: St. Paddy's Day is on Friday. We party hard in Boston. You can drink your green beer, or you can drink this. Or both... See ya at the BBC.

Pulled Pork That You Will Want to Put on Every Carb

Today is throw a bunch of meat in a pan kind of day. And we can help.

Not only is our Pulled Pork recipe an easy way to take away from holiday stress, it tastes freaking delicious and can be used in so many ways.

Toss it on some bakery fresh buns or a eat plain. We also aren't afraid to throw it on top of our mac & cheese or just go the whole nine yards and put all of the above on a burger. Have you tried our WTF Burger on BurgaBox? It is probably the most ridiculous meal you will ever eat. 

Basically, the options are endless and pulled pork will always be a crowd favorite.

Here are the ingredients...

  • 8lbs of pork
  • 1tbs salt
  • 1tbs Black Pepper 
  • 2 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 1/2oz brown sugar 
  • 1 1/2 cups of BBQ sauce 
  • 3/4 cup of Molasses 
  • 2 1/2 tsp onion powder 
  • 1 cup water

Here's how to cook it all up...

In a large pan, slice the pork into cubes.

Mix salt, black pepper, garlic powder, brown sugar and onion powder into a separate bowl. Throughly rub the cubed pork until evenly covered.

Add your choice of BBQ sauce, molasses and water to the pork in the pan and mix throughly. The liquid should cover all of the pork.

Cover the pan tightly with aluminum foil and place in oven at 500 degrees for one hour.

After an hour reduce heat for 300 for 3 hours.

Next, pull the pork apart with two forks in pan until all of the pieces are completely shredded and soaking in cooking liquid.

Now it's time to feast!

And if you're not much of a cook, we can just do all of the work. BurgaBox will send our Pulled Pork with homemade mac & cheese and our WTF Burger right to your doorstep. Just give us the signal and we will be there.
