Batter Up!

[dropcap custom_class=”normal”] D [/dropcap]id you know I played slow pitch softball for 11 years when I was growing up? Yep, me and my sisters played ball. Things were interesting, 3 girls and 2 parents, every once in awhile there was 3 games all at the same time.


My parents made it work. Sometimes parents of other players would take one of us to a game or bring us home from a game if it was needed. My dad actually was the coach for my one sister’s team. So we really loved the ballgame.


It was fun playing softball. It started out that was how me and my sisters would bond with my dad. He was the only male in the house, so us playing softball help him and us have a summer activity.

Ballpark Food

So I have a small amazement for ballpark food. I have written 2 posts on Parade Magazine that is a roundups of ballpark food recipes. I love stadium dogs and the outrageous creations with those footlongs.


Of course, you can get plain hot dogs at a baseball game. You hear the vendors shouting as they go up and down the stands:


Red Hots, get your Red hots here!


Peanuts, soft pretzels, and of course hot dogs, now that is ballpark food. Depending on your hometown team, each ballpark has a signature dog.

Pierogi Hot Dog

As you know I am proud to be from Pittsburgh. At the Pirate games at PNC Park, they have the Pierogi races. Pittsburgh loves pierogies.


So I decided to use Pittsburgh as inspiration to come up with this ballpark stadium inspired hot dog recipe. Let’s top a hot dog with some pierogies. Then add some other toppings like bacon, sauerkraut, and melted cheese sauce.


If I was at PNC Park and this pierogi topped hot dog was on the concession stand menu, I would so order it. The flavors of saute onions and pierogies on the hot dog go well together. This pierogi hot dog screams I am ballpark food!

I could eat perogies all day long but I would be 100 pounds heavier. But while I am indulging over the summer, I will be making a few of these babies!

I'm a total hot dog hoor! I would definitely order these! I didn't have the Baltimore dog, but I did have a crab pretzel. SO GOOD! I have pierogies....

I swear, there isn't anything better than a great hotdog. Especially if you eat it outside. I would never have thought to pair them with pierogis. That's a complete meal in a bun. Well done my friend.
