10 ballpark foods you can make at home

Boiled peanuts

Most stadiums simply serve bags of peanuts—just open and enjoy. But in southern stadiums you’ll find another option: boiled peanuts. It’s an acquired taste

Chicken fingers

A big tray or basket of chicken fingers is our go-to order at stadiums, and sometimes at restaurants, too! They’re easy to eat, they please the kiddos, and we love

Chili cheese dogs

Chili cheese dogs are even better at home because you can pick your preferred type of hot dog, customize your toppings, and not worry about getting this messy meal

Corn dogs

Hot dog that’s on the opposite end of the messy spectrum, then you can’t beat a corn dog. This self-contained snack-on-a-stick can be made at home

Cotton candy
