Waffle Mac is just as much about the toppings as it is the main course. Served in a waffle bowl, mac and cheese will be topped with grilled chicken, bacon and chives. After all, bacon does make everything better, right?
The Durham Bulls will feature a variety of new food items at Durham Bulls Athletic Park for the 2019 season, highlighted by the team's Wiener Waffle, Mac and Cheese Dog, Patty Melt, Waffle Mac and Mushroom Swiss Burger. All items have been concocted by Bull City Hospitality, the Bulls' food and beverage company.
The Mac and Cheese Dog features mac and cheese loaded on top of a hot dog. The item is designed to be a nostalgic option for fans who grew up on hot dog pieces cut up and placed into a bowl of mac and cheese.
The Wiener Waffle is a new take on the traditional hot dog, as the team's famous Carolina Packers Hot Dog will be served in a waffle bun. Fans will be encouraged to experiment with condiments, ranging from placing ketchup on a waffle to syrup on a hot dog.
The Patty Melt is the stadium's delicious burger prepared in a new way. The meat will be padded down and served between two pieces of Texas Toast, topped with melted cheese, bacon and grilled onions.
In addition to the items above being offered at every Bulls home game, the items below will be available for a limited time only at Durham Bulls Athletic Park in 2019.
