Concession Food Item of the Week: The Hammer
Baseball season might be coming to a close, but the wheels of journalism never stop turning. So even though today's food is presented by a team that's done for the year, there's no reason we can't take a serious, investigative look at one of their confectionary creations.
WHAT IS THIS WITCHCRAFT: The Hammer
WHAT COMPRISES SUCH A THING?: A fried-chicken sandwich with waffles for bread, topped with apple-smoked bacon, onions, pepper-jack cheese, and pecan maple mayonnaise.
I WANT TO EAT THAT BUT I DON'T LIVE IN ATLANTA: Never fear, Twitter user Tony Notarianni has a recipe for you:
HOW MANY CALORIES WE TALKIN'?: 860
HOW MANY SALADS COULD I EAT FOR THAT MANY CALORIES? You could eat 6 Premium Southwest Salads from McDonalds.
BUT WOULD THAT MAKE ME HAPPY? No.
WHAT IF I’M STILL HUNGRY?: 1. You should see a doctor. 2. Turner Field is also home to the flash-fried Dixie Dog, so you can stuff that in your face, too.
