Tasty treats, Texas style


See those yummy treats? What do you think they are? Donuts? Fritters? I'll give you a minute to guess ...

Ok, are you ready?

This is Texas, remember. In fact, this little treat is the 2009 winner of the Big Tex Choice Awards at the Texas State Fair. The award winning recipe is for ...

Deep Fried Butter.

I don 't get it. Why bother with all that breading and frying? I think I'll GRAB A STICK OF BUTTER AND EAT IT. Then, just before my cardiac arrest, I'll visit the booths where they're selling Fried Coke, Fried Peanut Butter and Jelly, and Chicken Fried Bacon. If there's time before the paramedics arrive, please stuff a hunk of Texas Fried Cookie Dough into my mouth. That way I won't get hungry on the way to the hospital.

Yee haw!

Are you serious? Fried butter? That sounds really gross. The picture makes it look so good though.

I know, it just looks like donuts or something! It's no wonder Texans are so ... um... plus-sized.

Amanda said...

Huh? Really?

And how does one go about frying Coke? How about fried brussels sprouts, fried toothpaste, fried watermelon...

Friko said...

How on earth could anybody actually EAT them? This has to be a joke.

Lesley said...

No, really, I swear! This yummy recipe won the Most Creative prize for the 2009 fair. Amanda, you MUST include it in the cookbook you are secretly working on. (come on now, admit it. if you're not working on one, you should.)

OMG....fried butter? OMG.

Hmmmmm, y'all wonder what fried coke would taste like?

LOVE this post!!! Love it...not for the fact of all the fried stuff, but you comments.

I'll be serving this to some friends who are coming round at the weekend. Well, okay, then, not really friends. Kind of .... people I would rather didn't come round that often.

Anni - I know, I can't figure out HOW you would fry coke! (let alone WHY)

Fran - Just be sure to have your defibrillator charged up and ready to go. Or not.
