In honor of today’s celebration of #NationalGrilledCheeseDay, we thought it would be fun to look at which teams offer a grilled cheese item on their concessions menu. The task was surprisingly challenging as grilled cheese apparently isn’t considered much of a ballpark staple, despite the current trend of creating eclectic food items at sports venues. It should also be noted that we haven’t actually tried any of these, so the ranking is rather arbitrary.
That said, here are the top five best grilled cheese sandwiches in sports…
Montgomery Biscuits – “The Gump”
While the Biscuits actually offer FOUR variations of grilled cheese sandwiches, our vote goes to “The Gump” which incorporates pork shoulder, BBQ sauce, coleslaw, “candied red onions” with pepper jack cheese to provide some zip on sourdough bread.
Chicago White Sox – “Avocado Bacon Grilled Cheese”
Thanks Night Train Veeck for the heads up…avocado and bacon added to a grilled cheese sandwich? Sounds delicious!
Round Rock Express – “Grilled Cheese Dog”
What says baseball more than hot dogs, peanuts and cracker jacks? While The Express’ unique spin on a grilled cheese might not contain the peanuts or cracker jacks, but it has successfully combined the hot dog with a traditional, down home comfort food. According to Minor League Baseball’s website, the “Grilled Cheese Dog” is made with a quarter-pound of Nolan Ryan’s 100-percent hand-selected All Natural Grass Fed Beef wrapped in a grilled cheese sandwich then skewered. A true Texas delight.
