Ball Park Fat Free Beef Franks Review

Ball Park Fat Free Beef FranksThroughout the summer grilling season, I have become excellent at finding substitutions for fat laden meats. Instead of a burger, I have learned to love turkey or black bean burgers. Instead of steak, I will serve up a seasoned chicken breast. However, until I ran across Ball Park Fat Free Beef Franks, I had never found a good substitute for a nice, juicy hot dog. I had pretty much decided that the essential ingredient for hot dogs was fat, so I was very excited to try this new find.

I wasn't terribly impressed with the long ingredient list, but, hey, what can you expect from a hot dog? The taste, however, more than made up for the unnatural ingredients. I actually popped these suckers on my George Foreman Grill and cooked them that way. I put each dog on a slice of whole wheat bread, and was good to go. Even though they are not as good as the full fat Zweigle's dogs, I was sufficiently impressed, especially to the tune of 180 calories for two hot dogs!! (I used 40-calorie light wheat bread in lieu of a bun).

Each Ball Park Fat Free Beef Frank (50 grams) provides 50 calories, 6 grams of carbohydrates including 2 grams of sugars and 5 grams of protein. They also contain 20% of the daily value for sodium (470 mg).

I purchased this package of 8 hot dogs at my local grocer for $3.99, which is about the same as most other hot dogs. I would absolutely recommend this product for anyone watching his or her waistline and looking for a picnic treat!
