Today on
Cooking With Jack!

Il Baseball al Fresco

Today's recipe is great for those times when
you just feel like
eating a little something outside.
AND, as always, it's very easy.
Even a cat could do it! (But they won't!)

(1) baseball - preferably one that you found at the baseball field

Step 1:
Have the tall guy take you on a walk around the baseball field - yes, the same baseball field that you are NOT supposed to be on. But it's ok, since we're walking on the path outside the fence where you are allowed to be.

Step 2:
Pull the tall guy toward the fence. Why? Because you see a baseball that someone has left and he (the tall guy) did not see it!

Step 3: Pick up the baseball and bring it to the tall guy.

Step 4: Have him throw it so you can run after it and pretend to bring it back.

I find that food tastes better if you catch it yourself (The tall guy apologizes for the earthquake at the beginning of the video. He also apologizes for pretending to throw the ball several times and making me look like a stomp-born fool!):

Finally, after you have brought it back a few times (time may vary as each oven bakes differently), go find a nice place in the shade to enjoy your Baseball al Fresco.

We hope you enjoy this delicious treat as much as we had making it for you!

Until next time...


  1. Does that come with a side of Frisbee?


  2. Will you call your nationwide food chain Jacks? Will there be franchises ?

  3. Sounds great Jack. Hope you keep enjoying those baseballs!!


  4. Jack, you are a dog after my heart. Baseballs are the best dog munching toy there is....period. Cowhide, string and sweat.
    What could be better.
    Oh, and maybe a little pine tar if George Brett hit it....BOL

  5. Jack,

  6. Morning said she thinks maybe the Atlanta Braves would benefit from TG's pitching skills and your catching skills!! We'll give them your contact information!!

  7. You labradogs are pretty easy to fake out with the ball toss. Thanks for the recipe. I am always looking for new taste sensations.


  8. Beisboll bin bery bery good to Jack :-)

  9. Can't wait to see your new show on TV!

  10. Baseballs are a dish best served well basted in saliva, then tenderized with sharp teeth. Don't eat it too fast, it can cause upset tummy.

  11. If dis is gonna be a chain, can I has one in my "hood"?
    Oh and you nevers suppose to bring da ball back...makes 'em think you has been trained.


  12. I LOVE BASEBALLS!!!! They're my favorite taste treat. Mom has to by them by the bargin because I go through them so quickly.

  13. Rowdy prefers wiffle balls because he can get his teeth into them. You might try them especially with lots of dirt on them for tastiness.

  14. Hmmmm...I don't want to hurts your feelings or anything but I don't really like this pawticular dish. Unless the ball is made out of CHEESE! Is that ball made out of cheese?

  15. What? No wine recommendation?
    A Merlot, perhaps?

  16. Love it! It's just like the videos I take. :-) And I mean that as a compliment.

    Jack's retrieving is much better than my dog's though.

  17. Great recipe!
    Now... let me go find a ball... and a field!
    Kisses and hugs
