12 Grand Slam Recipes for Bringing a Taste of the Ballpark Home

Baseball season is in full swing, folks. And you know what that means? Nine innings of awesome plays and, of course, delish stadiums eats that we dream about all off-season long. Since you can’t make it to every game this season, we’ve gathered up these 12 tempting creations that will transport you to the ballpark with just one bite. You’ll find an assortment of classics such as hot dogs, caramel corn and nachos, along with some newer faves here. No doubt, you’ll want the game to last longer than nine innings to give you even more time for munching. The journey to the World Series has never been so delicious… go Giants! ;)

1. Hot Pretzels With Sweet Mustard and Cheese Sauce: Fresh soft pretzels served with a duo of homemade sauces will surely win you a few fans. (via Just Baked)

2. The Chicago Hot Dog: If you like your dogs loaded with tons of flavor and texture, these “dragged through the garden” links are right up your alley. Peppers, pickles, tomatoes and more mingle together to create this classic Chicago-style creation. (via Lighter and Local)

3. Garlic Parmesan Fries: Baked, not fried, these garlicky fries are a whole lot healthier — but no less delicious — than any you can buy at the ballpark. (via Horses and Heels)

4. Beer-Cooked Bratwurst: We know exactly what we’d sip on to wash down these beer-infused onions and brats. (via The Sugar Hit)

5. Caramel Nut Popcorn: This made-from-scratch popcorn is so good there’s no need to hide any prizes in the bottom of the bowl. (via The Little Epicurean)

7. In-N-Out Double Double Copycat (Vegan): Burgers piled high with tons of tempting toppings are a mainstay of the ballpark. You can’t go wrong whether you make these bad boys as-written, or swap in your fave non-vegan patties, cheese and condiments if that’s more your style. (via Fettle Vegan)

11. Onion Strings: Seasoned through and through with hot sauce and spices, these skinny onion rings don’t even need a dip in the creamy Sriracha sauce served alongside. (via Melissa’s Southern Style Kitchen)

12. Nacho Bar: Let your guests choose their own culinary adventure with this incredible DIY nacho bar. With queso, guac, salsa, meat and more to choose from, there’s a little something for everyone. (via What’s Gaby Cooking)
