Step Up to a Full Plate Booth at Miller Park sponsored by Food Network
On the TasteBud’s latest excursion outside of Pittsburgh, we ventured to the city of Milwaukee, Wisconsin to see the Pittsburgh Pirates play against the Milwaukee Brewers.
Milwaukee is known for their beers, brats and cheeses, so it was much to my delight that I came across a Food Network booth at Miller Park (named one of America’s Best Pallparks) which went beyond those key ingredients to give me some variety in my weekend. This “Step Up to a Full Plate” booth, took some spins on some classics. PNC Park would be very fortunate to be a part of a program like this.
Menu included Buffalo Mac N' Cheese and Bacon Sloppy Joes
Buffalo Chicken Mac N’ Cheese and Bacon Sloppy Joes were the two options offered during the Brewers/Pirates series, each for only $7.50. Feeling confident I knew what the Buffalo Chicken Mac N’ Cheese would taste like, I opted for the Bacon Sloppy Joes. The sandwich wasn’t large but was quite delicious. Adding bacon to the traditional sloppy joe sandwich gave it a nice smoky, almost barbequed, flavor. The addtion of the pepperjack cheese gave it a little spicy, heat kick. And the fried onions – not from a can – added a fried, crunch. Sure it might sound like there was a lot going on in the sandwich, but it was a delicious take and something that you certainly wouldn’t expect to get at a ballpark.
Gourmet ballpark food like this should be available at ballparks across America.
Happily, the Pirates won the night I ate this sandwich. Perhaps if it was offered at PNC Park, I wouldn’t be such bad luck when I attended the games locally. Because, of course, I’m a good luck charm after I’ve had some good food.
