Ball Park Lean Franks Review

Disclosure: I was not financially compensated for this post. I received a sample of the product for review purposes. The opinions are my own, based on my personal experience with the product.

My family loves the summer months which is filled with lots of camp outs and grilling at home and at the park with family and friends. Our favorite grilled foods are delicious, juicy hot dogs and hamburgers. 

Therefore, we were very excited to try the newest offering from Ball Park which includes the Ball Park Lean Franks along with the Ball Park Flame Grilled Patties.

Ball Park Lean Franks

Ball Park Lean Franks are available in Lean Beef and Lean Pork and features less calories and fat. I appreciate that these franks are made with 100% Angus beef or 100% pork so there are no unnecessary fillers.

We brought the lean franks and flame grilled patties along with us to the mountains for our summer vacation since we would be doing a lot of grilling out. The bun-sized Lean Franks were just as surprisingly plump and juicy as I have come to expect from other Ball Park brand products. It has a nice meaty taste and texture and was a hit with my husband and kids too.

I was a bit apprehensive to try the Ball Park Flame Grilled Patties which are frozen and pre-formed as I have never liked any of the other frozen burger brands that I have tried in the past. We put these on the grill frozen straight out of the package and in less than 15 minutes we were enjoying a delicious and juicy hamburger with a wonderful grilled taste. I was very impressed with the taste and texture and my husband agreed that it was surprisingly tasty. I would definitely purchase the Ball Park Flame Grilled Patties along with us on future cookouts!

  3. Sandy McFadden says

    I am very picky about my hot dogs especially having to see as a child how they are made close up it is great to know that these franks do not have any fillers.

  4. Victoria C. says

    Great review. I think I might try the hot dogs. I love grilling and these will be a good addition to our summer menu.

  5. Rosie says

    I’m going to be looking for these franks – no filler and less calories – wowie! Great for the next cookout!! I can’t wait!

  6. says

    I’ll have to check these out the next time we’re doing a cook out. Hopefully at least the franks are gluten free. I wouldn’t expect the patties to be as there;s usually a bread binder. thanks for the review!

  7. Sherri Lewis says

    I didn’t know Ballpark made the grilled hamburger patties…. I will have to look for them when I go grocery shopping next.

    I didn’t think Ball Park was still around! I remember their ad from when I was a kid : “Ball Park Franks. They plump when you cook ’em!” And they did plump – we all watched when Mom made them!

    I enjoyed reading the review i always buy a few items before buying in bulk if i am doubtful about a product and it’s always good to test the product before being sure about it.

  10. Colleen Schilinski says

    I did not know that Ball Park had these. I will look for these and buy them soon. My family eats alot of Hot Dogs in the summer, and this is something I’d feel much better about eating.

  11. Erika B says

    We also loves to grill hot dogs and hamburgers and we like ones with no fillers and natural ingredients. Gotta love summer grilling, will keep my eyes open for these!!

  12. Sarah L says

    I’d just about given up on having hot dogs because of all the stuff that are in some of them. Good to know that I can again have some hot dogs. Thanks for the review.

  13. Heidi C. says

    I have been trying to buy hot dogs/hamburgers without a lot of added ingredients so I will keep an eye out for these!

  14. Sherry Compton says

    Sounds like some great products. I’m picky on my burgers and hot dogs. I want healthier but worry about lean hot dogs not being plump or meaty. I normally end up doing my own burgers to get a beefy, grilled taste. How wonderful and easy it would be to have these on hand.

  15. Helga says

    I have tried the Ball Park patties and they are really good! The dogs look worth trying too, thanks for the review.

  16. Dawn Monroe says

    Im not to creative when it comes to grilling so its usally hotdogs and burgers for us. I always buy ballpark because its a trusted name in my house.

  17. Erika E says

    I’m always on the look out for good tasting hotdogs that don’t have fillers. It’s nice to know there are more to choose from now.

  18. Clifford says

    We always use 100% all beef franks, hate fillers in them. Whenever we’re in the states we always buy Ball Park Franks to bring home, they are so great tasting.

  19. ANN*H says

    I like that they dont have filler there are lots of hot dogs out there that are made with who knows what. We all like Ball Park franks. I havent gotten any of the Ball Park Patties yet they are ususally out of them when I go for them. Must be good too : )

  20. David Hollingsworth says

    I respect that they don’t have a lot of calories, and they look really delicious.

  21. jennifer aikens says

    I would have to leave out that these were lean so that he would give them a fair chance. Would love to incorporate these into our meals.

  22. Amy Green says

    I pretty much live for Oscar Mayer’s Fat Free hot dogs, but I’ll check out this brand to have as an alternative.
