10 ballpark foods you can make at home

Put your favorite team on your TV and get in the right mindset by feasting on one of these 20 ballpark foods you can make at home.

Boiled peanuts

Boiled peanuts. It’s an acquired taste, but if you prefer that your peanuts include some preparation

They’re easy to eat, they please the kiddos, and we love the super crunchy deep-fried texture of stadium chicken tenders.

Chili cheese dogs

Chili cheese dogs are even better at home because you can pick your preferred type of hot dog

Corn dogs

If you want a type of hot dog that’s on the opposite end of the messy spectrum, then you can’t beat a corn dog.

Cotton candy

Cracker Jacks

“Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jacks,” say the lyrics of “Take Me Out to the Ballgame.

Fried pickles

We used to have to choose between deep-frying our pickles and baking them, with the former being very unhealthy and the latter not tasting quite right.

Jumbo pretzel

Lemon ice
