The 20 most ridiculous NFL stadium foods

    Ten NFL stadium foods that might kill you

  1. Pittsburgh Steelers

    Pittsburgh Steelers

    The Emperor. Two beef patties with shaved kielbasa, onion, bacon kraut, fried egg and Heinz Field Secret Sauce on a Brioche bun. It was all working class until they fancied it up with Brioche. It's like putting a tuxedo on a kielbasa.

  2. Cleveland Browns

    Cleveland Browns

    Bad to the Bone Bologna. Fried all-beef bologna, cut into the shape of Dawg bones, white American cheese, sweet pickles and Chomp's secret, spicy sauce, on soft white roll. Somewhere deep within the bowels FirstEnergy Stadium, it's somebody's job to artfully shape bologna with a bone-shaped cookie cutter. The accompanying fries are served with bologna cheese sauce, because if you have a bunch of bologna scraps you may as well throw it in some cheese and call it sauce. I make fun, but I'd totally eat this.

  3. New York Giants

    New York Giants

    Roasted hand cut slab bacon on a stick with a jalapeno maple glaze. Sometimes it's the simplest things in life.

  4. Kansas City Chiefs

    Kansas City Chiefs

    The Tailgate Stack. Burnt ends topped with cheddar cheese sauce, malted beer grain syrup, bacon and a fried egg, served on a piece of frybread. That's right. Deep fried bread. Pretty ballsy to serve burnt ends smothered with cheese in Kansas City. They'd offer it with ketchup, but they didn't want to offend anyone's sensibilities.

  5. Green Bay Packers

    Green Bay Packers

    The Horse Collar. Kielbasa topped with beer cheese and fried sauerkraut on a horseshoe-shaped roll. Pros: Beer cheese. Cons: Kind of looks like a toilet seat.

  6. Minnesota Vikings

    Minnesota Vikings

    TCF Bank Stadium now offers the 40 for 60 Burger, a 40 percent bacon/60 percent ground beef patty with cheddar cheese, bacon, crispy onions, a fried egg and special sauce, served on a pretzel bun. It's named after Vikings legend Joe Kapp's gameday philosophy of 40 men playing as one for 60 minutes. Or 40 ingredients playing as one for 60 Weight Watchers points.

  7. Carolina Panthers

    Carolina Panthers

    The Hogmolly, created for Panthers GM Dave Gettleman and inspired by his nickname for "linemen of girth." Sliced smoked brisket, tomato BBQ sauce, fried onions, pickled jalapeno, and cole slaw. It's called a Hogmolly, so why isn't there pork? And why are they featuring brisket in the heart of whole hog country? So many questions.

  8. Atlanta Falcons

    Atlanta Falcons

    The Falcons have this awesome disaster of a sandwich called the Game Changer. Pulled pork? Good. Mac and cheese? Nom nom. Cole slaw? Sure. Onion rings? Yes please. Bacon? Obviously. All together? God help us all. They definitely missed an opportunity to put this one on a donut.

  9. San Francisco 49ers

    San Francisco 49ers

    A doubled barreled wagyu beef hot dog. Not just your regular leftover cow parts, fancy cow parts! This Michael Mina creation is wrapped in bacon and topped with guacamole, pico de gallo and pork chicarrones.

  10. Seattle Seahawks

    Seattle Seahawks

    The Seahawks have bucket nachos. That's nachos. In a bucket. I haven't even tried them and they already surpass movie theater popcorn in the hierarchy of foods that come in buckets. Fried chicken, you're on notice.

  11. Ten NFL stadium foods that probably won't kill you but still look yummy

  12. Buffalo Bills

    Buffalo Bills

    Beef on Weck Eggrolls, a take on the iconic Buffalo specialty sandwich. The two-inch deep fried rolls have roast beef, cheddar cheese, carraway seeds, kosher salt, served with a Dijon horseradish dipping sauce. Congrats to Buffalo for figuring out how to fry their one famous food that isn't fried.

  13. Tennessee Titans

    Tennessee Titans

    When a burger like this is considered modest, then you know stadium food has gotten out of hand. The Titans offer the Big Daddy, a burger topped with bacon mac and cheese. I really want to make fun of it, but I can totally get down with this one.

  14. Tennessee Titans

    Tennessee Titans

    The Music City Meatloaf Sandwich - homemade meatloaf with crispy, fried onions and chipotle mayo. According to Aramark it's named for Nashville's "thriving comfort food scene." Because when you think about Nashville, you think about music, comfort food and chipotle mayo, apparently.

  15. Houston Texans

    Houston Texans

    Toro's Chicken Stack. The sandwich features Hill Country smoked chicken, topped with candied bacon, jack cheese and cranberry mayo on a jalapeño roll garnished with arugula. It's a ve-ge-table.

  16. New York Jets

    New York Jets

    MetLife Stadium offers The Kitchen Sink - Thumann’s Hot Dogs, Premio Chicken and Sweet Italian Sausage, fried potatoes, hot cherry peppers, onions and special sauce on a baguette. Needs more mac and cheese.

  17. Philadelphia Eagles

    Philadelphia Eagles

    The Quick and Carmichael looks pretty standard, but packs a punch. Black cherry smoked pulled pork, maple sugar smoked pulled chicken, topped with house made slaw, on a potato roll. It's named for Eagles legends Mike Quick and Harold Carmichael. I'm not sure which Pro Bowler is the pork and which one is the chicken.

  18. Cincinnati Bengals

    Cincinnati Bengals

    New this year at Paul Brown Stadium is the Who Dey Pigskin Wrap, a grilled flour tortilla encasing two corn tostada shells with Mojo pulled pork, pork crackling, bacon bits, Pico de Gallo and pepper jack cheese. The absence of Skyline chili shows remarkable restraint.

  19. St. Louis Rams

    St. Louis Rams

    Local favorite Strange Donuts is new at the Edward Jones Dome. Look for the maple bacon and the s'mores-inspired camp fire donut. Also chicken and waffles, because yum.

  20. Chicago Bears

    Chicago Bears

    Normally I'm against putting pulled meats on patty meats, but Soldier Field's DaBurger Sliders might turn me. This one is a pepper jack pork burger, chorizo cream, chipotle barbecue pulled pork, Havarti cheese, thick-cut bacon and crispy potato sticks. Looks great but how the hell do you eat this?

  21. Baltimore Ravens

    Baltimore Ravens

    Poe's Pork Taco - smoked pulled pork, tossed with buffalo sauce, topped with green onion slaw on a flatbread tortilla, named for Baltimore’s famous poet, Edgar Allan Poe. Because we all know Poe loved some pulled pork. Maybe "Eldorado" was really about the search for the perfect taco.
