Memorial Day Grilling Made Easy With Ball Park

10:35 PM

First of all, Happy Memorial Day to all of you!! I cannot believe that we are at the end of May, and June is at our doorstep. WOW! It is officially time to start summer now. :) If you are like me, you are probably making plans to go to a family gathering to celebrate Memorial Day. Some of you may have already gone to one...or more. What I love most about family gatherings is the food. There is just nothing like true picnic food. Yummy pasta salads, chips and dip, ice cream cones, fresh fruit and the beloved hot dogs and hamburgers. Recently, my hubby and I have begun to use a charcoal grill for all of our grilling and have simply fallen in love with the flame-broiled flavors that it produces. It is no surprise that right now, our favorite items to cook on the grill are hot dogs and hamburgers. BUT, what if you are unable to grill, or are looking for a quick meal or picnic solution? What if you knew that there was a hamburger out there that could be ready for you and your guests in one minute? Well, I have good news for you...there is!!
Ball Park has recently created a brand new product that is FANTASTIC, and perfect for those of you who love that flame grilled flavor without having to get the grill out. Ball Park Flame Grilled Patties are more than just another run-of-the-mill hamburger.

Here is a bit more about Ball Park and their famous, showstopping picnic favorites!

Since 1957 Ball Park® has been king of the frankfurter. Now we’ve gone a step further with our Flame Grilled Beef Patties, Angus Brats, and Angus Beef Hot Links. We don't claim to understand guys any better than you do. But we do know what they like to eat. So when he's just being himself, good luck. But when he's hungry, think Ball Park®.

The Ball Park® brand was launched in 1957 in response to a request from the owner of the Detroit Tigers baseball team. The Ball Park® Frank quickly became such a success, it was expanded nationally. Ball Park® is now a national premium brand of hot dogs with a reputation for great taste and quality. Today, you can find Ball Park® franks in supermarkets, convenience stores and Detroit’s Comerica Park.

Ball Park has always focused on quality and delivering bold juicy flavor. That's why we DO NOT use Finely Textured Beef Trimmings or what has been characterized in the media as "pink slime" in our products.

I am thrilled that Ball Park has opted out of the "pink slime" junk that is found in processed meats these days. When I first saw the news coverage about that, I was totally grossed out!! Nope...not for me, or my children!
So, as a BzzAgent, I received a coupon for a free package of Ball Park Flame Grilled Patties, in whichever flavor I chose. I was thrilled to see that they had a variety of flavors, and that they were all available at my local supermarket.
I chose to try the Beef and Cheese flavor. You will not find these burgers in the meat section of your grocery store as they come frozen. I have to admit that I was a bit skeptical when I opened the package. My burgers looked freezer-burned and I really was doubting that the flavor would be fresh and tasting like they just came off the grill.
All you need to do when cooking these burgers is place them on a microwave-safe plate and then cover them with a paper towel. (This helps to absorb some of the grease.) They cook for about a minute or more depending on your microwave and then they are ready for the table!
While I was microwaving my burger, I noticed how great my kitchen was smelling. With a kitchen that smelled like I had a grill parked in the middle of it, I was getting excited about how this flame-grilled burger would taste.
This was one wonderful tasting burger!! I was sooo surprised at how great it tasted and yes, it really tastes like it was flame-grilled! I fixed one of these for my husband and he too loved them. If I could change anything about the burger itself, it would be less greasy. There was quite a bit that I blotted off the burger with a paper towel but that is all I would ask that the company do differently.

For a package of 6 Ball Park Flame Grilled Burgers, you will be paying about $8.99. When I did the math, this is very comparable to buying fresh burgers so really, you are getting the same deal...which is nice. If you are looking for a store that sells these burgers, you can check out Ball Park's website for a store finder.
If you would like to keep up with Ball Park and their latest news, products and coupons, make sure you visit them on Facebook...they will LOVE to meet you!

So, in my opinion...Ball Park Flame Grilled Burgers are fantastic! My family loved them and they are the perfect solution to a fast and easy dinner. I love the flame-grilled taste and also, I loved how juicy and fresh the burger tasted. This will definitely be a regular summer item on my picnic table and I am thrilled to have tried them!
