We are all psyched to cheer on the Mets in Game 1 of the World Series tonight.

And a game watch isn't complete without the right party food!

Joanna Saltz is the site director for, and she's going to show how to get ballpark treats at home.


Heat frozen soft pretzels in the oven according to package instructions
Cover with warmed cheese sauce, sour cream, diced tomatoes, diced jalapeños

Start with ruffled potato chips (they hold more garlicky goodness!). Melt 1/2 stick of butter, and mix in two chopped cloves of garlic and a small handful of chopped fresh parsley. Pour over chips, and bake on a baking sheet until just warm, about 5 minutes.

Start with mini potato rolls—slice the top across to create a top-split bun. Fill with a mini cocktail frank and a little chili (chopped onions are optional!).

For each milkshake, add three scoops of vanilla ice cream to a blender. Pour in a cup of milk, and a cup of Cracker Jack. Blend until frothy. Garnish with whipped cream, more Cracker Jack and caramel sauce.
