My brother, Brother Uncle Don, sent me a link to the Wisconsin State Fair site. Haven’t gone since I moved away 30 years ago, but I still have fond memories of the insane types of food you can only get at state fairs. It says something when the website has a whole category for Food on a Stick.

One of the items there caught my eye. Fat Elvis on a Stick is a deep fried peanut butter cup in banana batter with bacon. Apparently there is also a chocolaty version, shown above. And then there’s Deep Fried Pepper Jack & Bacon Macaroni & Cheese On a Stick, Pork Chop on a Stick, and Spaghetti & Meatballs on a Stick…

    Yes, yes, Fair Food is awful for you. Most of the time it’s only eaten for the novelty factor anyways.

    I’m about 3 months into deep fat frying at home. I have mastered potato chips, working on empanadas.

    Chips are so good I’m skipping meals to just eat chips with ice tea. I alternate with potato salad and CORN DOGS. My favorite so far is a triple dipped corn dog. Dog–corn bread shell, dip in cheeze sauce and refrigerate, then add another cord bread shell. This makes the bread/dog ratio better than a single dip. Sure does soak up the oil though. I use Olive Oil–for the “health.”

    Left over corn bread batter is made into corn bread and left over cheese sauce is put on cauliflower.

    Takes a bit of time and planning—but good eats.

      Try grilling instead of frying. Grilled Mac N Cheese for instance. Quit driving up the cost of healthcare insurance.

    Wow… American’s will eat any sh_t they put on a stick and corn products, is the worst crap there is.

    Ever wonder why you don’t see many old people that are obese.

    Reminds me of C.M.O.T.* Dibbler from Terry Pratchett’s Diskworld series of novels.

    He’d fry anything in suet, put a stick through it, and pretend the gristly piece of rat he’d speared was actually food, sell it to you for any price the market would bear** and complain that if it was any cheaper he’s “Cuttin’ My Own Froat, guv’ner…

    *) C.M.O.T. -> “Cutting My Own Throat“.

    **) Mind you this is rat we’re talking about here. Not much market for rat. Nobody much wants ’em, except for the dwarves.
