Are you hungry enough to conquer the Tailgater Burger, the new gigantic sandwich that will be sold at M&T Bank Stadium during this season's Ravens games?

It kicks off innocently enough with a grass-fed beef patty topped with American cheese and applewood bacon. But the burger goes into overtime with kielbasa sausage, Maryland crab dip and beer-battered onion rings -- all stacked on a pretzel roll. Oh yeah, the monstrosity is topped with buffalo chicken wings.

The $18 burger was dreamed up by the Aramark culinary team at M&T Bank Stadium, led by Executive Chef Meg Miller.

"The sandwich's inspiration was marrying tailgating favorites into one dish," says Erin Noss, senior communications manager for Aramark, the company that runs the concessions at the stadium.

The calorie count? Suprisingly, Aramark didn't have one, but let's say it knocks off some yardage.

The Raven's first home game of the season is Sept. 27 against the Cincinati Bengals. Hungry fans can find the creation at concession stand 152 on the lower level of M&T Bank Stadium.
