I would love to turn my family on to such a treat?? 
Thanks Debbie (Myrtle Beach)

Hi Debbie,

All that I have been able to find about Texas Ranger Burgers is in these two posts:


(Note that "Chowhound" is no longer on the web.)

When I get a repeat request for a recipe, I do a new search so that I can determine whether anything new about it has been posted. I did so for Texas Ranger Burgers, and I found nothing new except a recipe called "Texas Ranger Burger" on this Romanian website for Hellmann's:  Hellman's Romania There is a recipe on that site called "Texas Ranger Burger." There is a Google English translation of that recipe from Romanian below. All that I know about it is what you see here. It does not appear to be authentic because it does not have any coleslaw and it calls for Hellmann's BBQ Sauce instead of any special sauce or "chili."

I could not find a respectable copycat recipe or "tastes-like" recipe for these burgers.

There is currently an operating "Texas Ranger" restaurant in Freeport, New York. See the links here: 2-1-21


Texas Ranger Burger

500 g minced beef
8 eggs
4 buns
4 slices of cheddar cheese
8 slices of bacon
a handful of iceberg lettuce
2 red onions
200g flour
2-3 tablespoons of milk
Hellman's Original Barbeque Sauce

Mix the ground beef together with a couple of eggs in a large bowl. 
Season with salt and pepper, then shape the meat into four large, 
flat burgers.

Cut the onion into thicker rounds and coat them in flour. Add the 
remaining flour over the 2 eggs and 2-3 tablespoons of milk. From 
these, we make a dough to which you add a little salt and leave it 
to ferment for a while.

Wrap the onion rings in the dough, then place them in hot oil and 
fry them until they are crispy. Let the excess oil drain on a paper 

Season the meat with salt and pepper and fry it on both sides until 
needed, then put a slice of cheddar cheese on top and let it melt.

In the pan, fry the bacon and add the 4 beaten eggs, season them with 
salt and pepper and place them on the meat with cheddar cheese.

Spread Hellman's Original Barbeque sauce on the toasted buns and add 
a lettuce leaf on top of which you place the meat with cheddar cheese, 
egg and bacon. Then add the fried onion rings and place the upper bun 
on top.
