Bacon -- and lots of it -- for new Texas Rangers food menu

Expect more of the weird, bizarre and oversized when it comes to food at Texas Rangers games in 2015.

The club held a preview event Thursday for the new menu items, which will be available in different parts of Globe Life Park in Arlington when the season starts next week.

Pitcher Derek Holland, AKA the Dutch Oven, is the latest Rangers player to have a food item named after him. The Holland Hot Tot'cho is tater tots with chicken or steak, sauteed red and green bell peppers, pickled jalapeno, buffalo sauce and spicy queso hollandaise served in a tiny Dutch oven.

Some of the other new items include:

  • Candied Bacon
  • Bacon Cotton Candy
  • Bacon Sunflower Seeds
  • Bacon maple ale beer
  • Chicken-Fried Bacon on a Stick
  • Chicken-Fried Corn on the Cob
  • Two-foot long taco/nacho hybrid
  • Rocky Road bread pudding
  • Country fried chicken
  • Mediterranean salad wedge
  • Captain Morgan banana split
  • Lava chocolate cake ala mode
  • Gourmet burger with home fries

The home opener for the Rangers is on Friday, April 10 at 3 p.m. vs the Houston Astros.
