ATLANTA (AP) — Forget the peanuts and Cracker Jacks.
The Atlanta Braves of Major League Baseball (MLB) are breaking out some real belt-busting menu items for their final season at Turner Field.
Leading the way is the “Burgerizza,” which is described as a grilled 20-ounce beef patty, covered with five slices of cheddar cheese, topped with crispy bacon, and served between two 8-inch pepperoni pizzas. Don’t forget to bring a credit card. The Burgerizza is $26, and it’s worth noting an angioplasty is not included.
The Braves, in conjunction with concessions partner Delaware North, are also introducing “The Everything Dog,” aka T.E.D. (a play on Turner Field’s nickname). This $15 foot-long hot dog will be layered with fries, chili, nacho chips, beer cheese and jalapeños, topped with popcorn and drizzled with Coca-Cola-infused BBQ sauce, served in a pretzel bun.
— “Tater Tot Chop” — A layer of tater tots pressed in a waffle iron, loaded with bacon, melted cheese and jalapenos, topped with a second tater tot waffle and served with Coca-Cola-infused ketchup. Cost: $16.
— “Punisher” — Country-fried smoked rib meat slathered in a Monster Energy-infused BBQ sauce, topped a fresh cut beer-battered onion ring and “slawsa” (because, why choose between slaw and salsa?), tucked between a toasted and buttered Hawaiian bun and pinned in place with two slices of candied bacon. Cost: $18.
— “Sausage Sundae” — Smoked sausage, split down the middle, topped with macaroni-n-cheese, mashed potatoes, and pulled pork, finished off with BBQ Sauce and a cherry tomato (in an apparent nod to the health freaks). Cost: $9.
— “TOP-N-GO” — Your choice of Fritos topped with chili and cheese sauce or Doritos topped with pulled pork, pulled chicken and cheese sauce. Cost $9.
Buffalo Chicken and Waffles
Shrimp Roll -- Shrimp salad topped with dill, arugula, and roma tomatoes all inside a New England style roll.
Fried Green Tomatoes
Smoked Brisket Po-Boy -- Smoked brisket drizzled in horseradish aioli with pickled red onions and house made pickles served on a french roll
Cumberland Farm Wrap -- Grilled seasonal vegetable, romaine lettuce, arugula, tomatoes wrapped inside a whole wheat tortilla with a drinkable balsamic aioli sauce
http://wtop.com/mlb/2016/03/braves-offering-burgerizza-for-final-year-at-turner-field/The Braves are moving to a new stadium in suburban Cobb County in 2017.
No word if they’re planning wider seats.
Until then, bon appetite!
http://www.talkingchop.com/2016/3/2...turner-field-final-season-burgerizza-punisherThere will also be a number of new dining options and stands debuting at Turner Field. La Taqueria located in section 321 will have tacos, there will be a number of Mayfield Ice Cream stands, a nacho cart located in section 202, the New Amsterdam Vodka Bar, a gluten free/vegetarian option located in section 102, along with numerous other options.
PNC Park (Pittsburgh Pirates) has a hot dog with caramel sauce, Cracker Jack, jalapeños and macaroni
The Los Angeles Dodgers unveiled new concession food options for the 2016 season at Tuesday's blogger's luncheon. Six new items were introduced by the Jason Tingley, executive chef for Dodger Stadium, and sampled for review by some of TBLA's intrepid writers. The price points for all the addtions are still to be determined.
King's Hawaiian Dog
The newest "Extreme Loaded Dog" to join the menu is a King's Hawaiian Dog. The bun is King's Hawaiian bread (naturally) in which a quarter-pound all-beef is topped with a pineapple salsa.
Shock Top Bratwurst
The Think Blue BBQ will feature two new items, a Shock Top Bratwurst and a Smoked BBQ Wings Bundle. For the former the pork sausage is infused with Shock Top beer, grilled, topped with caramelized onions and brown mustard and served in a "grilled lobster roll".
Smoked BBQ Wings Bundle
The chicken wings are a package deal of 15 smoked (using hickory wood) wings with French fries, veggie sticks and two soft drinks.
Gouda Kobe Burger
A "Gouda Kobe Burger" will grace the menu at the Elysian Park Grill locations throughout the stadium. This one-third pound American wagyu beef burger features smoked gouda, caramelized onions, pickles and thousand island dressing on a potato bun.
Chicken Verde Sandwich
The new "healthy choice" is a Chicken Verde Sandwich where a grilled chicken breast is served on telara bread with shredded lettuce, tomato slice, tomatillo verde sauce and jalapeño aioli, producing a fresh, clean-tasting sandwich, that satisfied without weighing the diner down.
Specialty Nachos Verde
The final addition is "Specialty Nachos Verde", where tortilla chips are topped with tomatillo verde sauce, pickled jalapeños and cotija cheese, providing a lighter alternative to the gooey, orange nacho cheese usually ladled over chips. Simple, but tasty, and would probably go well with a Dodger Blue margarita.
Flamin' Hot Cheetos Dog -- $10.50
The newest hot dog from the Texas Rangers features Flamin' Hot Cheetos infused into the nacho cheese and then sprinkled on top. "The Cheetos-infused nacho cheese has this atomic-looking color to it," Rapp says. "It's not yellow, it's orange."
Wicked Pig -- $27
"Stuff could fall off," says Rapp. That's how big this sandwich is. A Hawaiian roll is stacked with pulled pork, bacon, sausage, prosciutto and ham, then doused in barbecue sauce and topped with coleslaw and pork rinds. Customers get a fork and a knife, thank goodness. There's also a third bun in the middle for those who want to unstack it and tackle it as two sandwiches.
Chicken and doughnut skewer -- $12
Instead of going for a chicken and waffles dish, executive chef Cris Vazquez dreamt up a chicken and doughnut skewer drizzled with buffalo honey sauce. The 12-inch skewer might eventually get supersized into a 24-inch option, but the engineering wasn't quite there yet. "You can't just put it on a lightweight stick," Rapp explains. They're still hunting for the right way to serve 2 feet of hefty fried chicken.
Vegan cart: vegan hot dogs, meatless nachos, black bean burgers and more
A cart dedicated to meat-free and healthier items will be available in section 16, on the third base side. The concessions team sampled about 50 vegan items, Rapp guesses, to pick items that were right for ballpark fans. The cart will sell a vegan hot dog, black bean burger, vegan jerky, vegan nachos, vegan spinach wrap, hummus and organic beer.
http://www.guidelive.com/food-and-d...ons-chicken-doughnut-wicked-pig-sandwich-2016Shake it up salad -- $9
Also available on the vegan cart: a portable salad, designed to be shaken so the dressing coats the vegetables as fans walk to their seats. It's not the Texas Rangers' first salad, Rapp points out. But it's the first one that focuses on how people might want to eat one: with one hand, and quickly.
Globe Life Park will also debut other new concession items such as smoked brisket fries in the Captain Morgan Club and pretzels with beer cheese in sections 11, 18, 30 and 327. Ballpark attendees with suite tickets will also see new menu items such as rocky road bread pudding and a three-platter raw bar.

http://www.foxsports.com/mlb/story/...ays-aramark-delaware-north-concessions-032416But the Jays are also staying true to their roots with a unique twist on a Canadian favorite: poutine. Instead of the traditional French fries and cheese curds, the Jays are going with a Buffalo Cauliflower Poutine, which will be made out of breaded cauliflower covered in buffalo sauce with a hefty helping of cheese curds, gravy and scallions. There is a vegetable in there, so maybe it technically counts as a healthy option.

http://espn.go.com/espn/story/_/pag...lb-teams-release-wild-new-ballpark-foods-fansThe Arizona Diamondbacks have also been strong in the food department, and they're back with a Cheeseburger Dog. It's a hot dog made of CHAR-GRILLED HAMBURGERS. They've been ground up and mixed with chopped smoked bacon, green onion and cheddar cheese. They are then breaded with milk and flour, deep-fried and served on a hot dog bun with smoked bacon and secret sauce!

The Phillies will also sell a Sonoran Dog, which is a normal hot dog wrapped in hickory bacon with a tomatillo salsa verde, Tabasco mayo and -- of course -- some chopped tomato and onions.

The Cincinnati Reds invited media to a tasting of new concession offerings joining the lineup at Great American Ball Park for the 2016 season.
And first on the break-your-diet menu items is the “Flying Pig.” OK, this is more of a return than a new entry, but it's going to be difficult for any Cincinnatian to pass up a mettwurst wrapped in bacon and topped with hot peppers, pickled onions and honey creme.
lip N' Go, a line of packaged salads, fruit and healthy sandwiches, is available at the UDF stores throughout the ballpark. Just turn them upside down, take off what was the bottom and eat from the container. The selection includes a fruit salad cup, a grilled chicken sandwich, a green salad, turkey in a wheat wrap and a roasted vegetable spinach wrap. There are even fresh vegetables with a healthy dip.
Most people will never get past the Crab Box served at the Fry Box. This is a mound of fries buried under lump crabmeat, cheese and seafood seasoning. Folks might want seconds -- and stretchy waistbands. If that’s not your thing, also new this year are the Machine Room fries, topped with chili, queso and banana peppers, and the fajita bowl. (That's a bit healthier but is still full of carbs with its white rice, tortilla and quest.)
For folks who somehow manage to avoid most of the eats mentioned above, there are killer new desserts and treats at GABP this year. For example, say hello to Taste of Belgium’s Reds waffle. TOB owner Jean-Francois Flechet described his concoction as a marriage of his traditional waffle and American red velvet cake that is topped with a cheese creme and sprinkles. The ballpark also has put together a new ice cream stand that lets you coat vanilla ice cream with milk chocolate on a stick, then drizzle it with any topping of your choice.
