Plan on putting on the pounds this OU-Texas weekend.
According to the Dallas Morning News, here’s some of what will be served (fried) at this year’s State Fair of Texas:
Fried Beer: Beer-filled pretzel pocket is deep-fried to a golden brown. One bite and the escaping beer serves as a dipping sauce. 21 and over, ID required.
Deep Fried Frozen Margarita: Sweet & creamy funnel cake batter is deliciously coupled with margarita ingredients. Fried, dusted with a tangy lemon/lime mixture and lightly spritzed with south of the border flavor, it’s served in a salt rimmed glass. 21 and over, ID required.
Fried Lemonade: Lemon flavored pastry is made from Country Time®lemonade. First baked, then fried, this taste treat is glazed with a mix of lemonade, powdered sugar, and lemon zest.
Fernie’s Fried Club Salad: Super colossal 12” spinach wrap surrounds generous layers of juicy diced ham & chicken, shredded iceberg, crunchy carrot strips, ripe cherry tomatoes, shredded sharp cheddar and hickory smoked bacon. Deep fried until lightly crispy; topped with deep-fried sour dough croutons on a stick & served on a bed of shredded romaine lettuce. Choice of creamy Ranch, Thousand Island or Caesar dressing.
Texas Fried Frito Pie: A generous portion of savory Texas born chili accented with a hint of sharp cheddar encased in everybody’s favorite corn chip. Lightly battered and fried to a golden brown perfection. With its smooth medley of hot, meaty, crunchy, salty, cheesy, oozing goodness; “Texas Fried Frito Pie” transports you back to the golden age of Fair Food.
The State Fair opens Sept. 24 and goes through Oct. 17.
