State Fair of Texas unveils more ‘innovative’ foods

Here are some of your options with lots of adjectives supplied by the State Fair:

Cajun Crab Bombs: Two iconic flavors of the Gulf, crab and shrimp, are combined with a Cajun twist to make our mouth-watering “Cajun Crab Bombs”! First, we take jumbo lump and backfin crab meat and mix in just enough egg, panko, and seasoning to form our signature “Crab Bombs”! Next, we insert a Jumbo Shrimp into each bomb, with the tail sticking out as “The Fuse”! The Crab Bombs are then dusted lightly with fish fry and Cajun seasoning before fried golden brown. Served with Remoulade Sauce.

Champagne Jell-O Hot Shot: Great Texas favorites come together in an explosion of flavors. Tongue tingling Champagne, crisp Chablis and cool, sweet as candy Watermelon Jell-O with spicy slices of Jalapenos make this a memorable adult treat. Served in a 3.25 oz portion cup for your enjoyment.

Deep Fried Energy Bites: A protein packed energy bite fried in a sweet rolled oat batter, graciously drizzled with an espresso chocolate glaze, and served on a bed of fried coconut shreds. These nutritious bites of goodness are the perfect blend of peanut butter, chocolate, honey, oats, and coconut. Indulge in a sweet snack without the regret!

Deep Fried Nutella Custard Stuffed French Toast: Deep Fried Nutella Custard Stuffed French Toast is a sweet French toast sandwich filled with the ever-popular Nutella, homemade vanilla custard, and sweet smoked crumbled bacon between two pieces of French Toast. This amazing blend of flavors is then coated with a ground blend of many popular breakfast cereals and deep fried to perfection. Crunch on the outside, soft and sweet flavors on the inside! Topped with stiff, handmade whipped cream and a strawberry, blueberry, raspberry, lemonade puree.

Deep Fried Potato Salad: Deep fried comfort food in a bite! Potatoes, sweet relish, eggs, and onions are diced, mashed, then rolled together into a ball, tossed in Pearlie’s house seasonings, and deep fried to perfection. Yum!

Fried Southern Bourbon Bread Pudding: Mama’s bread-pudding with a Southern New Orleans flare is soaked in milk, bourbon, brown sugar and spices for a burst of delicious flavors. Each bread pudding ball is hand-breaded with breadcrumbs and flash fried so that each bite is custardy, crispy and crunchy. Each dish is served with a side of sweet bourbon graze for dipping and it’ll have you wanting to take another bite.

Loaded Baked Potato Funnel Cake: New twist on a fair favorite. Funnel cake dressed to look and taste like a “loaded with all the goodies” baked potato.

The “Ain’t no Lie it’s Fried” Steak: The State Fair gets a true Steak House experience with a Texas steak worthy of Big Tex. A 14oz Strip Steak is slowly tenderized for 5 hours before hitting the fryer to get the inside and the outside of your steak perfect.
