The Best Foods for Opening Day
Baseball season used to mean peanuts and Cracker Jacks. Now, it's oh-so much more. If we needed a reason to be excited about Opening Day, these crazy menu items would cover it.
That's exactly what it looks like: Two 8-inch pepperoni pizzas sandwiching a 20-ounce burger topped with enough cheddar cheese and bacon to feed a crowd.
Other crazy dishes coming out of the Braves' stadium this year include:
"Tator Tot Chop"--A tator tot sandwich, pressed in a waffle maker, loaded with cheese, bacon, and jalapeños. Not enough to get you going? Add the special ketchup--it's infused with Coca-Cola, the drink of Atlanta.
BYO Knife and Fork.
"The Everything Dog"--Cheekily called the T.E.D., this footlong dog is loaded with everything but an actual baseball. Cheese, jalapeños, fries, chili, chips, popcorn, and a drizzle of (you guessed it) Coca-Cola-infused barbecue sauce. It's the perfect dish when you don't know what to get, and don't want to pick.
"Punisher"--If you've ever wondered why your food couldn't taste like your favorite energy drink, this one's for you. Monster energy drink barbecue sauce tops country-fried smoked rib meat on a buttered bun. Add candied bacon, onion rings, and "slawsa" and you've got diner.
We're still not sure how to eat that one without a dozen napkins and a nap mat.
Staying home and looking to create a little stadium dining magic of your own? Try smothered enchiladas. All the dreamy cheese, none of the brown paper napkins.
