greenbaypressgazette.com – GREEN BAY – Cheese curds on brats. Bacon in tater tots. Welcome to the concession stands at Lambeau Field for the Green Bay Packers 100th season.
Delaware North, which runs the food operations for the Packers, trotted out its latest creations on Tuesday for a media tasting.
Heath Barbato, executive chef for Delaware North at Lambeau Field, says they looked into doing a 100-year-anniversary food item, but after looking at menus from a century ago, it was clear that American food tastes have changed. Significantly. How do you work quail into a game day menu?
Still, topping a bratwurst with melty cheese curds, known by its menu name Brat-in-a-Blanket, seems rather appropriate. Oh, and it’s topped with a beer mustard.
“It’s kinda the Wisconsin sandwich,” Barbato said.
Meanwhile, Barbato got inspired to stuff tater tots with bacon after creating crab-stuffed tots during a business trip to San Francisco.
Most food items making it out of testing and landing in concession stands around Lambeau included bratwurst, bacon and cheese. Big surprise, right?
Ok….. I don’t know where to start. First, let me just say this food at Lambeau Field looks fucking amazing!! I need all of it. Being a Lions fan I hate this team but loving the looks of their food. I’ve always wanted to attend a Lions vs Packers game at Lambeau, but now I need to make this trip happen with multiple people so that we can get every item off this post and split it all and have our own taste test. That looks beyond amazing, especially the Brat-In-A- Blanket with me being a big time Brat fan! Def hitting Lambeau in the 2019 season now.
