Three Foods to Try at Miller Park
The bratwurst culture is huge in Wisconsin and Miller Park is no exception; you know sausages are popular in a ballpark where people in sausage costumes race in the sixth inning of every game. But other than as an ingredient in the “bratchos”, I’m going to suggest a few alternatives, because not even I can live by brats alone:
But there is something to be said for that; an AJ Bomber’s burger is the right kind of juicy, with toppings ranging from bacon, cheese, Schlitz onions and peanut butter. (Yes, you read that right.)
You have to wait a bit for an AJ’s burger, and there’s no view of the ballgame from here, so get your fix taken care of before game time...and wash it down with a concrete.
But the bratchos are not to be passed up on otherwise. It’s new at Miller as of 2015...and new as a food item that I’ve ever seen. Bratchos are kettle chips covered with four kinds of crumbled sausage (chorizo, Italian, Polish, and bratwurst, the staples at Brewers games), cheese sauce, sour cream, jalapenos, and sauerkraut.
It’s pretty much like a mishmash of a loaded brat with chips, but I’ve never seen them combined before. As professional eaters say when eating odd foods together, it all ends up in the same place anyway.
Holey Moley had four custard doughnut sandwich offerings in my visit...there was a “Peanut Butter Jelly Time” - custard, blueberry preserves and peanut butter drizzle; “Hella Nutella” – Nutella, bananas and hazelnuts; and the “P-Can Sam” – pecan pie pieces, caramel, and pecans; and finally the inimitable “Goober Jobber” – custard, pretzels, salted caramel and peanut butter.
By all accounts I’ve read, all are delicious. And these dessert sandwiches are actually pretty reasonably priced for a ballpark. Just make sure you have some room, it ain’t Jello.
Those are three unusual and tasty food stuffs at Miller Park, but there’s a lot more, like the Nachos on a Stick, the Smoke Shack Ham Dinger, and the Down Wisconsin Avenue Brat...a meal for at least two. If you want to know all about the food at Miller Park, be sure to get yourself one of these!
