The baseball season has just started, and with it comes this year’s round of insane ballpark concessions.
For Atlanta Braves games, check out the Burgerizza. At the center of this monster burger is a grilled 1.25-pound hamburger patty, topped with five slices of melted cheddar cheese and a bunch of bacon. And instead of being sandwiched into two halves of a bun, all that protein is placed between two eight-inch pepperoni pizzas.
Chicken and waffles is a soul food favorite and now it’s on the menu for Toronto Blue Jays games. Sort of. Prepared similarly to a corn dog, a chicken skewer is dipped in thick waffle batter, and then deep-fried. (For some reason, it’s served with cole slaw made out of broccoli.)
Globe Life Park
On the menu for Texas Rangers games: the Chicken and Doughnut skewer. It’s a foot-long shish kabob of alternating doughnut holes and boneless fried chicken coated in buffalo honey sauce. An even bigger Rangers concoction is the Wicked Pig. It’s so named because it would seem most of a pig has been stuffed between two halves of a bun. Piled high are pulled pork, sausages, bacon, prosciutto, ham, and even pork rinds.
Arizona Diamondbacks fans can buy a Cheeseburger Dog. A hot dog-like sausage is made from ground beef, ground bacon, shredded cheese, and green onion. Then it’s breaded, deep-fried, and served on a hot dog bun.
Cracker Jack and hot dogs are two ballpark classics, and at Pittsburgh Pirates games you no longer have to eat them separately. The Cracker Jack & Mac Dog is a foot-long hot dog served in a puffy taco shell and topped with Cracker Jack, jalapeños, and some macaroni and cheese. (It even comes with a Cracker Jack “prize.”)
