A staple of going to see minor league baseball games in Fort Wayne as a kid was the local Chevy dealer sponsoring various between-inning entertainment options, and the PA system playing the old “baseball, hot dogs, apple pie, and Chevrolet” ad-jingle that was on the air way before I was born.
Now, thanks to a collaboration between Guy Fieri and Chevy, we’re getting both apple pie and a hot dog. Together. It’s a collaboration ahead of Thursday’s MLB Field of Dreams game from Iowa, a fitting occasion to debut something like this.
As for the apple pie hot dog itself:
“As a long-time Chevy guy, it’s awesome to be working together on this funky throwback snack for the MLB atField of DreamsGame,” said Fieri. “I can’t wait to see the reactions from fans as they take their first bite of the Apple Pie Hot Dog!”
The one-of-a-kind recipe will feature an all-beef hot dog, apple pie filling, and Fieri’s signature bacon jam, enveloped in flaky pie crust, and topped with an apple mustard drizzle, apple pie spice, and demerara sugar. The Apple Pie Hot Dog will be offered exclusively to attendees of MLB at Field of Dreams Presented by GEICO in Dyersville, Iowa, on Aug. 12.
If you’re not going to be at the game, fear not: you can make it yourself at home!
I’m not a culinary expert, and while Guy Fieri gets a lot of shit, most of it is undeserved. He certainly knows more about food than I do, and mashing together ingredients for a monstrous-sounding baseball concession hot dog is a time-honored tradition.
If anyone does order this, please offer a lengthy, detailed review.
