It’s official: Football season has arrived with the Ravens taking on the Broncos in the kickoff game tonight. From now until February, the majority of Sundays will be spent on the couch watching the games and eating ultimate comfort foods like chilis, wings and dips galore. But if you find yourself headed to the stadium, check out Food Network’s all-new concession lineup straight from the chefs at Food Network Kitchens.
Six NFL stadiums are serving up offerings like sloppy joes, hot hogs, brisket sandwiches, and mac and cheese. The signature sloppy joes are a drool-worthy combination of ground beef and slab bacon chunks with slow-cooked tomatoes topped with shredded pepper Jack cheese and fried onions. The hot dogs are topped with baked beans, mustard and corn chips. Don’t forget to snag a locally inspired menu item at each stadium.
