            Nolan Ryan's Grilled Ballpark Burger

Prep Time: 20 Minutes 

Cook: 10 minutes

Ready In: 30 Minutes 


Ingredients (Serves 8):

  • 4 lb of Nolan Ryan Beef Ground Chuck 
  • 4 Large Eggs, Lightly Beaten
  • 4oz. Shredded Cheddar Cheese
  • 1/4 cup Nolan Ryan Steak Seasoning
  • 4 Slices of Bacon
  • 8 Hamburger Buns
  • 1 Tomato, Sliced
  • Butter Lettuce
  • 1 Sliced Purple Onion
  • Pickles



  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  2. Cook the bacon on a baking sheet until crisp, about 15 minutes. Drain off the fat and pat the bacon dry with paper towels. Chop the bacon into very small (⅒-inch) pieces.
  3. In a large bowl, combine the ground chuck, cheese, chopped bacon, seasoning, and eggs with a large serving fork and spatula. Finish mixing with your hands, but do not overmix.
  4. Form the mixture into 8 patties and place on a parchment-lined baking sheet. The patties should be no more than ¾ inch thick or they will take too long to cook. Refrigerate the patties for 30 minutes to allow the seasoning to flavor the meat.
  5. Preheat the grill or a grill pan to medium-high. If using a grill, lightly oil the grill grates.
  6. Cook the patties (in batches, if necessary) for 5 minutes per side or until done to your liking.
  7. Serve the patties on toasted buns. Add Onion, Pickles, Lettuce, Tomato + any condiments desired.
