even though it been forever I remember skake and bake burgers quite well as a kid. I would love to see it back on the shelves. at 55 years old i have to admit it's the best burg i've ever had. i would like to know why they ever pulled it. possible a health issue, but come on if your going to eat burgers what's the dif? i'd rather crock eating something i enjoy. the next best thing i've found even close to it is lick's frozen burgers. let's all get off our butt's and start pestering the makers of shake and bake. who know's, might get somewhere.

This was definitely one of our favourites. Did contact Kraft last year to see if they were ever going to reintroduce it or if not, if they would make the recipe available. They did reply, No to both questions.

I loved it too and have been trying to find a copy kat recipe. I never looked forward to having hamburgers for dinner before this. I never fry my hamburgers and always have them in a bun but I never did this with the Shake n Bake hamburgers. I didn't want anything to take away from the wonderful flavor. Please bring it back.

i've been doing some reading and it seems to maybe of been a health issue. i remember it calling for regular ground beef. i don't see why you can't just use a leaner burg if your worried.

It's great to hear from consumers who are looking for our products because it lets us know how much you enjoy them. If products don't seem to be popular with our consumers, and demand starts to drop, a decision is made to discontinue the item. Once this decision is made, we stop making the product and the remaining supply is shipped from our warehouse to the grocery stores. At this time there are no plans to bring back our discontinued products, but we are always cooking up something new to help you live and eat better so you may discover a new favourite! Because we have so many different products introduced over the years, as they become discontinued after a long time it becomes difficult to maintain records of every product we've created. I will be sure to let our team know of your interest in having it make a comeback. Again, thanks for contacting us, and I hope you'll continue to enjoy our products.

Hello fellow Shake n Bake hamburger lovers! I think if Kraft received enough requests for a revival of this product, they might take it into consideration. Am going to write them right now. It made the BEST hamburgers that McD's, B. King, etc. just can't match.

My grandma would always buy fresh ground chuck and make shake & bake hamburgers when I went to stay with her. They were awesome!!! Wish they still made it or had a similar recipe for it.

I was told that it didn't sell but every time we try to buy it they were sold out. So how could it not be selling. We loved it because of the flavor and because you baked it not fried.

Yes Yes Yes, please bring back shake n bake for hamburgers. The very last pkg I purchased tasted like someone had slipped and put way too much salt in it. Shortly after than I couldn't find it again. The hamburgers were always so moist & juicy when baked with shake n bake.

Bought Shake & Bake for Hamburger all the time back in the 70' and always wondered what happened to it, hard to believe Kraft Foods said basically wasn't selling that well, I agree times and tastes trend over the years but come on Kraft look at all the Positive feedback you have right here. So dam easy to do a survey on social media these days, you could have an answer in a week or so. I personally feel it was a liability issue of people not cooking the Burgers thoroughly and getting sick and the Corp. lawyers said ditch it before someone gets sick and dies. Lawsuit. Just my take.
Frank N - March 06, 2017 - Report this comment
I've been emailing Kraft foods for over 15 years now trying to get Shake & Bake for hamburgers back on the market. They said that it wasn't popular enough!!!! Like everyone said, great burgers and juicy ALL the time. I have been asking them to whip up a case for me and I would buy it and store it. Probably wouldn't last long with me but the point is it was a great product. I bet if they re-introduced it in the urban areas first it would take off.

I knew I wasn't crazy LOL I called the craft at one time and they told me they never had a product like that and I knew they did because I remember it so well as a 12-year-old at that time please please please bring that back or if anybody knows where you can get some of it that would be really outdated but worth a try LOL love love love that stuff

Can't understand or find reasonable answers to why Shake-N-Bake for hamburgers is no longer available! Kinda makes me wonder if they found out something in it would make them liable for lawsuits. Really that is the only conclusion I'm able to come to since there are no articles on it to be found that make any sense. I loved it though!!

I loved the hamburger shake n bake and so wish they would bring it back ..I loved it back in the 70's and truly get a itch wanting to make them bad kraft would not give the recipe to make it for all of us to use...

I was a teenager and loved to make dinner if we were having Shake-N-Bake Hamburgers. I also would LOVE to have it back on the market. My little sister and I were talking about it the other day. I am glad also that I am not the only one to remember it and love them. PLEASE bring Shake-N-Bake for Burgers back.

Once again, please bring back the best burger one could eat. This is year 16 that I have been writing Kraft and got the same double talk about being discontinued and “we thank you for your interest in our products and would like for you to keep trying our other products.” I don’t want their other products. Tried ‘em all and like the hamburger mix. BRING IT BACK, KRAFT!!!

Was just thinking about Shake and Bake for Hamburgers and done a google and found this site. I also fondly remember those tasty burgers! Juicy and flavorful, why on earth did they discontinue it. It looks like people have been asking this question for a long time. Maybe they can publish the recipe so folks can try to reproduce it themselves.

If I remember correctly, my mom and I went through this trail when it was first discontinued and the reason then and the reason it tasted so good, was heavy msg, just like adolphs meat tenderizer at the time!

I contacted the shake and bake company this weekend all they said was there not excepting any comments or suggestions. I did make shake and bake with chicken on my hamburgers in the air fryer and added Lowery seasoning salt this week they turned out pretty good not as good as the other though

Yeah, I too remember these fondly, from, what, 40-50 years ago. Yikes. In addition to the ingredients, does anyone have what the cooking instructions were? I've tried a few bake-in-the-oven recipes and none worked quite right. If anyone has the instructions -- temp, minutes in the oven, etc. -- that would be great. I'd love to get a picture of the box too, to show my wife I'm not making this up...

Do any of you remember Duchess Burgers? It was a recipe from the back of the shake n bake box, a scoop of Mashed potatoes on top of a shake n bake burger. Mmmmm. Haven't had them in over 30 yrs.
