Your favorite players weren’t the only ones prepping in the offseason. MLB stadium chefs celebrated Opening Day by debuting some new, unique game day fare.

Baseball is back in full swing and along with Opening Day comes a new season of mouth-watering treats. While players have been training in the offseason, the chefs in charge of the culinary experiences at MLB stadiums have been curating new menu items for you to enjoy while you root for your home team. From over-the-top hot dogs to luxurious fries, here’s a glimpse at some of the more unique offerings available now.

“The Boomstick Burger”

Globe Life Field (Texas Rangers), Texas 24”, Section 132

This culinary concoction remixes Globe Life Field’s iconic 2-foot-long hot dog and introduces this concept to another fan-favorite: the hamburger. The main character of The Boomstick Burger is a 2-foot-long Nolan Ryan beef patty, topped with Texas Chili Company Chili, Rico’s Nacho Cheese, jalapenos, battered onion rings, all between a fresh-baked brioche bun. If you’re hungry enough, you certainly could attempt to eat this massive creation by yourself, but it is designed to feed four people.

“Poutine Hot Dog”

The Rogers Centre (Toronto Blue Jays), various sections

The name really tells you everything you need to know about this one. A juicy hot dog between a soft bun, topped with hash brown potatoes, squeaky cheese curds, and savory brown gravy. Is it a go-to combo? No? Does it have delicious potential? Absolutely.

“The Champagne of Dogs”

Guaranteed Rate Field (Chicago White Sox), Miller High Life Sky Lounge

After a win, champaign is an obvious celebratory beverage choice, so why not combine bubbly with…a hot dog? This elevated rendition of a classic weiner features a half-pound beef frank, nestled in a brioche bun and topped with a champagne Vadalia onion relish, and finished with habanero mustard.

“Crab Fries”

Oracle Park (San Francisco Giants), Murph’s Pub (Section 122), The Cove (Blue Shield Field Club Lounge)

If you’re going to watch baseball in the Bay Area, you might as well enjoy some of the seafood. This snack utilizes Old Bay- seasoned waffles fries, which have the perfect amount of surface area, nooks and crannies to hold onto the fresh Dungeness crab and garlic lemon aioli. Who knew fries could be so luxe?

“The Cleanup Burger”

Truist Park (Atlanta Braves), 1871 Grille, near Section 113

Breakfast-inspired burgers aren’t anything new, but The Cleanup Burger is taking things up a notch. This sweet and savory ballpark fare starts with a buttermilk Belgian waffle topped with four all-beef patties, golden hash browns, hickory smoked bacon, cheese, a sunny-side up fried egg, a drizzle of maple syrup, and is topped with another fluffy waffle. Grab three of your friends and enjoy while watching the Braves dominate – or while silently praying for their defeat.
