Double Clutch Menu Item for the Reds Series: Skyline Chili Skillet

It wouldn’t be a series with the Reds without some famous Skyline Chili being featured at the Double Clutch!  However, your traditional chili bowl won’t be found at one of the most popular Miller Park concession stands.  Of course we have to put a special twist on a traditional meal.  For the three game series with the Reds the “Skyline Chili Skillet” will be featured at the Double Clutch.

The fried egg topping the bowl of chili was an interesting take on a traditional favorite.

The fried egg topping the bowl of chili was an interesting take on a traditional favorite.

Served in a bowl, the very healthy (meaning generous in this case) portion of Skyline Chili is mixed with fried potatoes and topped in a way I have never seen before–with a fried egg.  Of course, some traditional toppings like cheddar cheese, sour cream, caramelized onions and scallions are on top as well.  The meal is made to order, so feel free to take toppings off as you please.  The chili bowl is $9.00 and will be served throughout the three-game series.

As a lifelong Milwaukeean and graduate of Marquette University, I am partial to Real Chili.  To me, nothing beats it.  This dish, however, has a unique take on a classic.  I know it is hot and humid this week, but it is worth a look.

A staple of the Double Clutch, the Spaghetti-in-a-Meatball is also available again and features a 1/2 pound beef and veal meatball stuffed with spaghetti and mozzarella cheese and topped with marinara sauce.  That is $9.

The Double Clutch stand is on the Loge Level outside section 215 (on the first base side of the press box).

Double Clutch Menu Item for the Mets: Firecracker Sliders

Yesterday, we celebrated America’s holiday–the Fourth of July.  While the Brewers were on the road in Washington D.C. yesterday, we will continue the traditions that come with that holiday this weekend at Miller Park at the Double Clutch.

Featured on the menu this weekend as the Brewers face the Mets in a three-game weekend set will be Firecracker Sliders.  Two all beef sliders with a “firecracker” relish, pepperjack cheese, fried onions and a sweet molasses aioli.  The sliders are served along the famous housemade chips and a pickle.  The firecracker relish heats things up a bit, but compliments the sweet molasses aioli.  The meal is $9.00.

Nothing says "America" like Firecracker Sliders!

Double Clutch Menu Item for the Cubs Series: Chicago’s Greektown Gyro Nachos

The Chicken and Waffle Sliders were a hit over the weekend, selling out each day!  For the three-game series with the Cubs, the Double Clutch special menu item again goes regional.

Chicago’s Greektown Gyro Nachos will be featured during the Cubs series–an interesting take on a classic dish. Served in a bowl, the generous portion of crisp pita chips comes topped with shaved gyro meat, tomatoes, shaved onions, cucumbers, tzatziki sauce and feta cheese.

Gyro Nachos!

Bring a fork, because you will definitely need it to enjoy this dish!  The Gyro Nachos are $10.

Double Clutch Menu Item for Braves Series: Chicken and Waffle Sliders

Chef John is at it again, putting his own touch on the soul food classic meal of Chicken and Waffle Sliders available this weekend at Miller Park’s “Double Clutch” stand.  This is probably the best one I have tried to date.

Thyme infused waffles and crispy fried chicken (boneless) served slider style–two to an order.  The chicken is topped with a homemade maple-dijon aioli and micro greens.  I urge you all to give this a shot because it is delicious.  The sweet taste of the waffles and maple aioli combined with the chicken makes for an awesome combination.  If I can help myself, I might try it each day this weekend.

A popular dish in the South, the Chicken and Waffle Sliders are $10 and available throughout the three-game weekend set with the Atlanta Braves.  They are meant to be eaten like a sandwich, but might be a bit messy so grab a fork and knife.  I can’t wait to hear your reviews, please share below.  I think you will all enjoy this.

The waffles are made fresh on the griddle at the stand.

We’re Number One (Again)… Because of YOU!

We just received some terrific news–John and Cait… Plus 9  was the top MLB Pro Blog for the second month in a row!

April was a great month for us and and we carried that into a strong May here on the blog. This is a great honor as we are always competing with a number of awesome blogs across the MLBlogs platform. Great new photo blogs like the SF Giants Photos Blog and Dodgers Photo Blog are tough to beat.  Other front office insider blogs like Jamie Ramsey’s Better Off Red and the Mariners From the Corner of Edgar and Dave  continue to provide us with inspiration for JCP9.

But really, it’s all thanks to you–our readers!

It was a busy May for us and we hope to continue to be the place for an inside look at the Brewers. We would not be number one without our readers, so to celebrate, we thought we’d do another fun giveaway with trivia related to the blog.

The first person to answer the following questions in the comment field below will win a prize package consisting of:

JCP9 Prize May

Ready? Here’s what you need to answer–three questions designed for you to go back through our archives!

  • From the group of players that John saw in the 2011 Arizona Fall League, how many are currently with the Big League Brewers now?
  • Which former Brewers player was Cait paired with at the Davey Nelson Celebrity Golf Tournament in 2012?
  • We’ve hosted Social Media Night the last two years and a each time, a different Brewers player has made a guest appearance. Name the players.

Good luck!

UPDATE at 2:40pm CT: Congrats to Travis B. You’re the winner! Wow, that was quick!

Thanks again for reading everyone, it has truly been a pleasure to be able to engage with all of you; it was especially fun for us to meet those of you who came out to Social Media Night in person as well!

We are very fortunate to each have an inside look at the team and want to give you as much of a look inside the organization as we can. Please continue to let us know your comments, criticisms and ideas as we continue to provide our own behind-the-scenes look at Brewers baseball.  We love your feedback and will use it to hopefully stay number one in the rankings!

Cheers!

Double Clutch Menu for the Phillies Series: Philly Cheesesteak

You all had to know this one was coming.  The classic Philly Cheesesteak is on sale at the Double Clutch stand at Miller Park during the current four-game set with the Philadelphia Phillies.

The sandwich features thinly sliced sirloin beef served fresh off a sizzling grill along with sautéed peppers and onions.  Provolone cheese and/or creamy cheese sauce top the sandwich which is served on a thick hoagie bun.  A side of house made Miller Park chips are on the side.  The meal is $10.

Rumor has it that Brewers bullpen catcher Marcus Hanel has been known to polish off a couple of cheesesteak sandwiches on Brewers road trips to Philadelphia.  I’m not sure on the exact count from the recent road trip (we keep track of a lot of stats, but not that stat!), but I might bring this down for him to try as he is the cheesesteak expert.  I had mine “wit out” and it was pretty good.  Since it is a four-game series, I might even have another one on Saturday!

A staple of the Double Clutch, the Spaghetti-in-a-Meatball is also available again and features a 1/2 pound beef and veal meatball stuffed with spaghetti and mozzarella cheese and topped with marinara sauce.  That is also $9.

The Double Clutch stand is on the Loge Level outside section 215 (on the first base side of the press box).

It’s a little chilly in Milwaukee today and the Green Chile Tacos al Pastor on the menu at the Double Clutch Truck at Miller Park will surely warm you up.

The pork is marinated in green chile salsa topped with a tasty chipotle cream sauce and lettuce, served three tacos to an order.  A scoop of cilantro lime rice is on the side and is $9.  It will be available throughout the Brewers-Athletics series this week at Miller Park.  The tacos had awesome flavor.

Double Clutch Menu for the Pirates Series – Polish Hill Pierogies

Nothing says Pittsburgh more than Pierogies!  Pierogies are very popular in Pittsburgh and if you don’t know what they are, read on and you might be intrigued to try one this weekend at Miller Park.

Pierogies are dumplings made of unleavened dough, first boiled, then baked or fried usually in butter with onions – traditionally stuffed with potato filling, sauerkraut, ground meat, cheese, or fruit, typically semicircular in shape.

And, like our very own World Famous Klement’s Racing Sausages, the Pirates Pierogies are an important part of in-game entertainment for all Pirates games at PNC Park. Following the end of the 5th inning, the Pierogies take the field to run the 280-yard Pierogi Race. There are four different pierogies in the race: Sauerkraut Saul, Cheese Chester, Jalapeno Hannah and Oliver Onion.

The Pierogies also make various appearances in the community, ranging from parades to private functions and non-profit events.

The Double Clutch will serve Polish Hill Pierogies this weekend at Miller Park. For $9.00 you can enjoy a plate of three butter-seared pierogies with caramelized onions and smoked kielbasa on the side.  It is also served with a piece of bread.

The Double Clutch is located outside section 215 on the Loge Level and the Polish Hill Pieogies will be available all weekend.

Double Clutch Menu for the Dodgers Series – Shrimp Baja Burrito

The Brewers are back at Miller Park after a ten-game roadtrip and that means a new item at the Double Clutch Food Truck – Shrimp Baja Burrito.  If the dollar hot dogs at Miller Park this week for Spring Madness are not your style, you won’t want to miss this special item.

Inspired by Southern California food trucks, the made-to-order burrito comes filled with fresh Cajun-seasoned shrimp, avocado,  bacon, basil aioli and slaw.  It’s a pretty hefty serving and don’t forget a fork and knife to make sure you get every last bite!  A side of Miller Park’s famous homemade chips is on the side.

The Shrimp Baja Burrito is $9 and will be served at the Double Clutch stand for the three-game series this week with the Dodgers.

A staple of the Double Clutch, the Spaghetti-in-a-Meatball is also available again and features a 1/2 pound beef and veal meatball stuffed with spaghetti and mozzarella cheese and topped with marinara sauce.  That is also $9.

The Double Clutch stand is on the Loge Level outside section 215 (on the first base side of the press box).
