Fair Fare: Fun Foods From the Fair



It’s almost fair time across the country. And fairs are fantastic places to sample some, er, interesting treats.

Like this donut cheeseburger (above). It’s a contest to come up with the most outrageous food combinations. Some are winners. Some are not.

Fried foods are a HUGE deal at the fair.

Fried Twinkies, fried pineapple, fried burgers, fried milkshakes. You name it.

It’s a gastronomical taste explosion! And so fun!

So tell me, will YOU be going to the fair this year? What’s your favorite fair fare?

Fried Food To The Max

I like fried foods.

I like Thanksgiving dinner.

But, nope, I don’t think I’d like my entire Thanksgiving dinner fried up into one ball of grease.

Maybe that’s just me.

See, it’s approaching State Fair time in Texas and that’s when the crazy fryers come out. Fried Nutella. Fried bacon.

And turkey and stuffing rolled in cream corn and corn meal and fried to a crisp. Oh, and served with sides of cranberry sauce AND gravy. (See photo of turkey dinner fried up into a ball above.)

Because it’s not heavy enough. You need GRAVY.

Go ahead. Check out an entire slide show of fried masterpieces here.

You might find something to serve at your next holiday meal. Me? I prefer my turkey this way, thank you.
