Baseball Stadium Food Hacks Taste Test

Today, ballpark concessions – will have to make some concessions – Let's talk about that

( theme music playing ) Good Mythical Morning! We are swinging for the fences today, debuting our Sam Hunt predictive text music video and making a game out of some awful vintage commercials But that's later This is now And now is baseball season And, lately, stadiums across the country have been vying for that super Instagrammable wild, wacky concoction that'll put 'em on the food map

For instance, the deep fried hot dog stuffed pickle – at Texas Rangers games Mm-hmm But we thought there were still some dishes that you should be able to get at the ballgame but you can't And that's why it's time for ( chuckles ) So we're gonna be exclusively using ingredients that you can get at the ballpark to make food that you probably cannot find at the ballpark – No, you cannot – Let's get to it ( music plays ) If you go to a "footie" game in England, you're gonna get yourself a meat pie

But you can't get that – at a ballpark here in America – Nope Turns out we just weren't looking hard enough This is the 'Merican Meat Pie – Yeah

– All right, first thing you're gonna want to do is get yourself a hot pretzel – Woman: Pretzels! – Oh, yeah, over here – Woman: Get your pretzels here – We need a pretzel Woman: Hey, batter, swing

Okay – But, uh we'll take– – Pretzels? Yeah, we would like one pretzel

We do not have any cash, though – Or a card – Uh, okay Well, I guess– I'm not supposed to do transaction scenes, but, uh, I'll make an exception for you two – We'll take this one

– Oh, you're just gonna take it Okay Name's Dottie Hinson, after "A League of Their Own" Thank you Thank you, Dottie

Okay, you're gonna take this We're gonna do what we call the rip 'n' dip Link, I want you to rip up that pretzel and just place it right into that beer, You're gonna get, just, you know, about a third of a glass of beer And the you're gonna let this congeal and sit for a few innings And then you're gonna end up– – yeah, you can skip ahead to that

– Yeah This is what's gonna end up happening after a few innings You're gonna have this congealed bread It looks a little nasty, but, trust us, this is the beginning of a meat pie Now you're gonna take the glove that you brought to catch foul balls

You've got to have one of those Of course Got it Oh, you look so ready to catch You're gonna take about half of that and make the bottom half of the meat pie, just right here in the webbing here

Just take it and just flatten it out as flat as you can get it – Oh, gosh – This is better than watching the game – Really? You don't like baseball? – Yeah, I love to get my hands really mushy in a mitt ( sniffs ) Okay, now, you're going to get a bratwurst, a chili dog, and a hamburger

This is gonna be the insides of the meat pie You want to take the meat from each one of these things and begin to chop it up So just take that chili dog and start chopping it up Again, people are gonna look at you like, "What's that guy doing?" – But then when – "He's up to something" you break out this meat pie, they're all gonna be jealous You just wait So just chop that into some very small pieces Oh, yeah, give me that– gimme that burger And you can get the ham from the hamburger

Plastic knife I'm allowed to use these Oh, that's not easy to chop But, I mean, again, you got plenty of time because you're at a baseball game Right, there's a lot of breaks

Now, again, we're gonna fast forward a little bit Link, this is what you're gonna end up with at the end of that We don't need this And I'm going to take some mustard Look at that Magicand just mix some mustard in there This is a– this is a ballpark thing, so you've got to have some mustard And some barbecue sauce, – because why the heck not? – Yeah And then mix all that together

There's some potential here Now, take that, as much as you think you can fit into your meat pie, Okay, there it is Right there, I'm just gonna– I'm making you a little meat pie top over here Oh, this is beautiful – See, look, now

– Smells greatsmoosh the meat pie top right on that And then smoosh it down – Yes – Oh, yeah

– It's just like a baseball – That's so much better than a foul ball And then, you know what? I'ma pull this out Oh, gosh It's a little damp

I think we might just be able to eat it right from the glove – Well, true pie-dom is just being able to hold it – Don't you think?

and bite it Okay, we've achieved pie-dom All right, let me take a bite

Now, you're gonna want to share it with your buddy I think your buddy's gonna have to keep it in his hands while you eat from it You don't want to touch it, do you? Oh, no, I'm excited about this Now, don't bite my finger I'm not gonna bite your finger

Are you touching it or are you not touching it? Mm Mm – Oh – Let me get some of that Take me out to the ball game

– Mm – Man Can I come with? Wow, so many great flavors – Yep, a lot of memories we're gonna make – attacking my moutheating these meat pies at the ballpark I hope this thing goes into extra innings ( music plays ) Now, of course, baseball is America's pastime, but we feel like the South is underrepresented when it comes to their concessions That's why we want to infuse the ballpark with some Southern comfort with Grandstand Grits 'n' Gravy – All right

– To start this off, – you gotta start with popcorn – Okay Popcorn, here! Get your popcorn! Uh, we'll take a popcorn Aw, cool, man – How much is this? – Put it on the tab

Oh, it's free I got fired last week I'm just hanging out That is so convenient Thank you

And, of course, you've already eaten your ice cream in your batter's helmet So you want to take the popcorn, put it down into that, and you've got some hot water that you've acquired Maybe from making tea, if you're one of those weirdoes that drinks tea at the ballpark So you're gonna pour a little of that in there Ooh! And then use your signature, um, bat that you purchased– Commemorative bat

Commemorative is the word I was looking for Start to mush that up And while you do that, I'm gonna add some coffee creamers – There we go – Oh, beautiful

All right, so you mush that up, and that's what's gonna make your grits If it starts to set up a little bit, that's totally fine, 'cause you're gonna use that time while you're waiting for it to set up to make your red eye gravy Now, red eye gravy starts with some coffee You can easily get that at the ballpark, and you want to add some pork grease, which is gonna come from your bratwurst Now, you're gonna want to drink most of your coffee and just have a little bit of coffee left

And then you're gonna want to squeeze the bratwurst Ooh, that– it's warm Squeeze that– squeeze that brat Oh, there it is – Real nice

– Squeeze some grease – And you're also gonna take – There it goes

That's pleasant for everybody involved – some barbecue sauce

– Including the bratwurst Oh, gosh, wow You're really greasing your bratwurst Yeah, and then add some barbecue sauce to really mix it up, and use a coffee stirrer for that And if you feel a little self-conscious about keeping a dried bratwurst around, you can tip the popcorn guy with it

Popcorn guy! Popcorn guy! – There he is – Popcorn guy You know what? I want you to have this squeezed bratwurst – Thanks, friend – Did it just for you, man

He's always up for anything ( whispers ) He doesn't work here He doesn't work here, so he takes food like that Oh, my goodness Okay, so we've got the gravy

– And now – And now we've got– look how this has set up Look at them grits, boy! That's nice, girl! And then you just add a little bit of the red eye gravy Yeah, girl All right– ooh, nice – Okay – That's good You wanna mix it? Uh, yeah

Mix it in Okay, and then Now, of course, these aren't warm

They're the temperature of however it feels at the ball game, which makes it a beautiful thing Well, the hot water should help, if it hasn't set too long I think it's been out ( sniffs ) long enough Mm

It tastes great Um – That sounded so– – But

You sounded so unsure of yourself The smooshed kernels require some– some mouth navigation It is unusual how– I never thought you could get such a gritty grittiness from popcorn

Mm But I like it Gimme some more of that Fill my helmet again And you're not gonna get any weird looks

( music plays ) Now, baseball's thought of as a summer game, but it starts in March and ends in October There are gonna be some cold games to get through! So we've decided to create a soup to warm you up It's called the Make in your Mouth Beer Cheese soup Step one, get yourself one of these beer helmets – from the gift shop – Check

And the you wait for the beer vendor to come by Woman: Beer Got your beer here – You got beer here? – Yeah Hey, boys

You two again? – Yeah – Yeah, remember us? Yeah, of course They got budget cuts at the ballpark, so I'm doing this shift, too – Okay – All right, enjoy

We still don't have money – Thank you – No problem – Okay, you're also gonna get yourself – I'm gonna take this off some hot nacho cheese Now, this is very important that we do this at the right time Usually for the chips, for the nachos

You're gonna take the nacho cheese, you put it in one side And then you're gonna take the beer, and you're gonna put it in the other side This can't go well Make sure they're properly balanced Now, the beer's gonna come a lot faster

So, Link, what you're gonna do is take the beer side and cork it – Oh, cork it – With your thumb And then you're gonna take the nacho cheese side – and insert it – Uh-huh

– Then you're gonna take– – I'm nervous! Put it in your mouth and we're gonna prime the cheese, okay? 'Cause we want the cheese and the beer to hit our mouths at the same time for an amazing experience I'm doing it Here we go Suck Here it comes

– Mm-hmm – Okay, now put the beer end in – In the beer – Mm-hmm, mm-hmm And now, three, two, one, suck

Both: Mm! Mm-mm Did you suddenly forget that you had open beer and cheese on your head? Because that's what it looks like – No – You know what? I'm having an amazing experience over here All you gotta do is sip, swish, and swallow

( music plays ) We gotta get some dessert up in this ballpark, and while ice cream helmets and lemon freezes are pretty tasty, we thought it was high time to elevate the sweets you can get to something like Impromptu Tiramisu – Ooh, fancy-sounding – That layered Italian delicacy – It is Italian, right? – Woman: That's correct – Oh, good, I knew something

– It's not really a delicacy All right, you gotta start off with some churros Churros here! Get your churros! – How convenient – Hot and fresh churros You gotta take 'em quick

Security is looking for me It's not good All right, so we got some churros here, Rhett What you're gonna do is take your coffee– I have it over here And you're gonna want to dip the coffee– dip it in the coffee to make it soggy, and then rip off the soggy part to create the first layer

So, like, make– rip that apart 'cause you're gonna want to make the first layer in the bottom there A little bit more You know, you want some soaked goodness Use another empty beer cup to smoosh it down On top of that layer, you want to add some ice cream, which you also have there in that helmet

Don't get the whipped cream We're saving that for later So just throw in a layer of– – Oh, you're having some trouble here? – Oh! – Whipped cream's for later – Whipped cream for later Right now, all we want is the ice cream

Mm-hmm So you're gonna want to take that ice cream to make another layer All right, so you're putting that in there And then order a Snickers "Excuse me, I would like a Snickers

" Oh, we've already got one And then take a little knife and shave some chocolate on there Oh, yeah Then you want to repeat this again and again until you get to the top of the thing You're doing a great job, but I've already made one

Oh, thanks for letting me know So, we're gonna magically swap that out Boom, there it is Now add your whipped cream on top – And the cherry

– And you've got yourself some Tirama-swing-batter- batter-batter Okay, I'm going deep – Taste it, man – Taste this You want to get that churro-chocolaty goodness

Everything in one bite, no? – Did I cramp your style a little bit? – A teeny bit – Oh, look at that – I'm used to it Chocolate, churro, ice cream – Mm

– We finally got something right It tastes exactly like tiramisu That's weird It's very good Wow

Man It's impromptu, it's tiramisu, and it's good for you Uh-huh, now click through to see a brand-new Sam Hunt music "vide-ooh," written completely by predictive textbot, too Knock it out of the park with this "Be Your Mythical Best" baseball t-shirt, available at mythicalstore
