If you don’t remember the bacon-y, Jeff Francoeur-y goodness from a few weeks ago, you really missed out. And while I though I had my fill of baseball bacon this season, I stand corrected. Yesterday, I went to Busch Stadium and chowed down on another bacon-wrapped morsel.
This time, it was a ballpark frank, wrapped in bacon, covered in whatever toppings I wanted. I went with BBQ sauce, re-fried beans and french fried onions. Other options included sauerkraut, grilled onions and jalapenos.
It was absolutely DELICIOUS. The flaky bun was just the beginning, but the actual wiener itself was delicious (shut up, I know what I said). The bacon was perfectly cooked and expertly wrapped. The onions complemented it perfectly, though they skimped on the sauce a bit. The beans were unnecessary but added a nice touch.
All in all, it was a good meal. And considering it cost about the same amount of money as a normal dog at any park, I was very happy with my decision.
I don’t know if the bacon-wrapped ball park dog is THE thing to get at Busch Stadium, but I’d highly recommend it if you visit!
