Meat is the word on this year's Heinz Field menu

A marquee new-menu item at Heinz Field this year: the Bacon, Egg and Cheese Dog. (Like many of the higher-end options, it's only available for Club Level ticketholders.) The dog is what it sounds like: a foot-long frank, wrapped in bacon and topped with cheese, chipotle mayo and a fried egg.

"There are a lot of day games scheduled this year," says Aramark general manager Dominic DePaola, who oversees concessions at Heinz Field. "So, that one takes care of breakfast, lunch and dinner!"

┬áMany of the new options seem designed to help you make next year's offensive line — the overarching theme might be "meat on meat." The D-Line Burger (also on the Club Level) has smoked brisket, jalape├▒o jam, barbecue sauce, cheese and a fried egg on it. The Emperor Burger — available to all ticketholders — honors Chuck Noll in its name, and Pittsburgh's culinary history in its contents: It's a beef burger with shaved kielbasa and onion-bacon sauerkraut on it.

DePaola notes, though, that vegetarians aren't completely out of bounds at Heinz: There's a plain pizza, offered this year by Fox's (a new partnership with Heinz Field). And there are gluten-free options available.

There are city-specific options at stadiums throughout the AFC North, if you're planning on heading into enemy territory this fall. Baltimore's M&T Bank Stadium, for example, has items like Crab Tots (tater tots with crab dip). Sounds tasty, sure, but nothing says smash-mouth Steelers football like three kinds of meat at once.
