Bombers Unleash L'eggo my Eggo Burger


Battle Creek, Mich. – If 2013 was the year of the nationally-acclaimed Bombers Twinkie Dog, 2014 might just be the year of the “L’eggo my Eggo Burger”.  The Bombers announced their new signature food item today, along with some other additions to the 2014 game-day menu.  

This new concoction starts with a classic Eggo, which is then topped with a unique sauce the Bombers have created – a mix of a molasses-infused BBQ along with Michigan-sourced maple syrup.  This is then topped with a cheeseburger, plenty of bacon, and more sauce.  Another Eggo is then placed on top of the burger.  The Bombers then add yet another cheeseburger, more bacon, more sauce, and top everything off with one final Eggo.  Large toothpicks are then placed to help hold the burger together.  By the time it is ready, the L’eggo my Eggo Burger contains three classic Eggo’s, over a half-pound of hamburger, two slices of cheese, four strips of bacon, and plenty of the Bombers new sauce.  This new item will be available for purchase on Opening Day, May 29th at 7:05 PM at the Bombers main concession stand.  

General Manger Tony Iovieno commented on announcement today, adding “After the success of the Twinkie Dog last year, we felt we needed another new home run for our 2014 Food & Beverage program.  The ‘L’eggo my Eggo Burger’ is not only delicious, but also pays homage to Battle Creek’s legacy as the Cereal City.  I know fans will enjoy this just as much, if not more, than our nationally-acclaimed Twinkie Dog”.

Single-game tickets are now on sale and are available by calling (269)-962-0735, by emailing or by stopping by the front office at 189 Bridge Street in Battle Creek.  Opening Day is schedule for May 29th at 7:05 PM versus the expansion Kalamazoo Growlers.
