I’m heading to my first NFL game of the season (pre-season that is) tonight at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami and one thing I always look forward to are the changes to concession menus.
The company that services many of the NFL Stadiums, Aramark, released its new menu items for the 2017 NFL season. So, that got me thinking: what are the most insane stadium foods? I combined last year’s fan favorites across the country with Aramark’s new list to generate the 10 most insane stadium foods you can look forward to enjoying:
10. Pizza Box Nachos – Arizona Cardinals
Of course we start with Nachos!! These hefty nachos are topped with local chiles, slow-roasted pork, cheese sauce, guacamole, sour cream, olives and salsa—and then served in a cardboard pizza box … as if a mere paper plate would even have the strength.
9. Loaded Potato Skin Burger – Kansas City Chiefs (NEW)
The Loaded Potato Skin Burger is fried potato skins covered with cheese, bacon bits and sour cream all serving as the bun for a burger with lettuce and a tomato slice.
8. Donut Burger – Tampa Bay Buccaneers (NEW)
The Bucs have stepped it up here with two whole doughnuts in one burger. Throw in a fried egg and bacon – YES PLEASE!
7. Arrowhead Biscuit – Kansas City Chiefs (NEW)
This is a sandwich with a hash brown patty, Canadian bacon, fried egg, bacon jam and cheese. Then, it’s topped with mini pancakes and bacon.
6. Bloomfield Pierogis – Pittsburgh Steelers (NEW)
Forget about Primanti Brothers sandwiches!! The Bloomfield dish is potato pierogis topped with vodka sauce, spicy Italian sausage, mozzarella and Parmesan.
5. French Toast & Sausage Sandwich – Chicago Bears (NEW)
The French Toast & Sausage Sandwich is a New England roll French toast with maple bacon sausage, spiced apple compote, toasted pecans, sharp cheddar cheese and caramel-maple syrup.
4. Lobster Roll – Miami Dolphins
OK – I’m somewhat of a homer Dolphins fan here but I do love Lobster!
3. Purple Grip – Minnesota Vikings (NEW)
The Purple Grip is a buttermilk pancake, breakfast sausage link, bacon cream gravy, crispy tater tots and minced chives.
2. Slim Chicken – Philadelphia Eagles (NEW)
Just don’t let the name deceive you – there’s nothing slim about it. The Slim Chicken is a Frosted Flakes-crusted chicken breast topped with sharp cheddar cheese and ghost chili honey glazed bacon, on a sliced apple fritter.
1. Fried Chicken & Red Velvet Waffles
Congratulations, Redskins fans. You can enjoy the craziest new menu item in the NFL. “Red and Gold” Chicken and Red Velvet Waffles dusted with Powdered Sugar. That is, fried chicken tenderloins stacked between a red velvet waffle, drizzled with maple syrup and sprinkled with powdered sugar!
