I've done a couple of threads in past years on fair food. The wonderful cholesterol freakfest that fair food can be. Stuffed with cheese, deep fried, breaded, then deep fried again.

This year, the San Diego Fair has yet again decided to clog the arteries with a Krispy Kreme triple cheeseburger.

Your arteries will never survive.

Am I going to try it? I have no problem eating baby duck fetuses and chocolate meat and I have no gag reflex so why not?

I don't get this fascination with stacking as much fat and calories as possible in a single meal.

It's delicious, we don't gotta explain ****.

... actually, that's probably the explanation.

I just bought my airline ticket to fly back home to Minnesota in August. I scheduled the visit to coincide with the MN State Fair.

I'm pretty excited for all the fair foods I've not been able to indulge in for years: Hand-dipped Pronto Pups, Tiny Tim's donuts, Choc Ice cream cone from the Dairy Building...to name a few.

The crispy creme burger looks sad. I can dig a good triple-decker but there's no way a crispy creme donut will hold up to three juicy patties. You'll need to use a fork. Using a fork to eat a burger is even more ridiculous than using a fork to eat pizza. And yeah, where's the bacon?

We kick off our festivaling with the Greek Fest - coming soon: Spanakopita, retsina and dolmathes. Smiley: drool

It looks closer to nauseating than delicious to me.

Me too, but in its defense that has to be one of the worst pictures I've ever seen taken of a burger.

Gonna need a lot of ketchup.

You don't put ketchup on that burger, you use jelly or maple syrup.

Well either way that combination of meat, dairy and sweet isn't going to stay in the system for long.

You mean a picture that shows how it actually looks?

I like funnel cakes. Anything with more calories and fat than that is just overkill, to me. The simplicity of the stringy donut-pancake batter covered with powdered sugar is enough.

You don't put jelly on a cheeseburger. Unless it's apple jelly. That might be good.

Jelly is for plain burgers. Peanut butter is optional, but pairs surprisingly well.

Haven't been to the fair in years, but this year I've got 2 tickets, 2 exhibitors passes, and a t-shirt. All for $10 and a couple bottles of beer. Can't beat that with a stick. I suppose someone will twist my arm and force me to eat something disgustingly delicious.

Out here in the NE they don't even bother stringing the dough into the oil, they just drop a blob in, and....WALLAh - Fried Dough.

I'm adding funnel cake to my MN state fair list of 'must haves'.

That sounds more like fry bread. Or a non-holed doughnut.

Sounds like a zeppoli to me. I only have those in September during the Feast of San Gennaro.

I just make bread dough, like I were to bake it, and tear off a small chunk, stretch it flat, and fry it til brown in hot oil. Sprinkle a little salt on it when it comes out of the oil, tastes much better than baked bread. My grandmother and dad like putting butter and sugar/cinnamon on it, but I think that hides the fried bread flavor.

But, our fairs here in Michigan still have funnel cakes. It's been ages since I went and had one, but I remember them as pancake batter drizzled into a fried mass, sprinkled with powdered sugar. A different flavor and texture than fried bread.

It's a blessing and a curse for me to live about 10 minutes away from one of the best doughboys and clamcakes shops in RI. Smiley: lol

Aren't you basically just making a fried tortilla though? Not that this isn't yummy, but...

Yup. Those are called buneulos. And yeah, they're delicious!

You must not have ever had it. It tastes nothing at all like a fried Tortilla. It's bread dough, yeast and all, kneaded, risen, beat down, risen, beat down. Fried in hot oil, puffs up, a little dense.

Fried Bread

The savory flavor of the salt and bread is better, imo.

Any specific dough recipe? Just a basic white?
