Chocolate Bacon

I've always been super interested in food. I'm on a permanent try something new quest, most of which has been asian food (where I will literally never be able to try everything as the cuisines and dishes go on forever compared to western food).

I came across this tumblr post of state fair food and I have literally never heard of or seen any of this stuff other than the meat and potatoes! And probably won't either as the chance of me going to a state fair in the US seems slim.

SO THIS IS VERY INTERESTING.

Chocolate bacon seems to be a thing:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chocolate-covered_bacon

Probably works better with american bacon which appears to be uniform processed strips. Australian bacon includes the middle cut (the round part) and is not uniform. Looks like this, though you can also buy just the round part for slightly more which is the only bacon I buy:



Anyway.. at first I thought the funnel cake in this photo was okonomiyaki but it appeared to have powdered sugar on it and I soon realized it was not LOL. So what is the brown syrup and white syrup (not mayo and soy sauce I assume). I've always been a bit unsure what funnel cakes are, is this a classic funnel cake?

Tell me about more regional fried goodness.

Re: Chocolate Bacon

I've had bacon truffles before, they were quite tasty! It was a typical dark chocolate truffle with crispy bacon crumbled on top.

Re: Chocolate Bacon

I think that funnel cake is a variant of a tradition of putting cinnamon and sugar on top of a plain funnel cake. The topping is probably a sugar frosting like you'd find on cinnamon buns, along with cinnamon sauce. I've seen them topped with whipped cream and fresh strawberries!
I've never had deep-fried Twinkies... I want to! Those are coated in batter and then deep-fried. Apparently, they're very good with strawberry sauce.

Re: Chocolate Bacon

So if the brown sauce is cinnamon sauce what is the white sauce?

I have never heard of cinnamon sauce!

I will try anything once though I am absolutely not a fan of sweets or fried food. I have eaten a deep fried mars bar though and am glad I got the opportunity. It seems to me the idea that you can batter and deep fry anything is a neglected cuisine path. I think it would be awesome if the fish and chip shops here offered to batter and fry anything you brought in for a few dollars.

I do like fried ice cream very much.

Probably what Peach said, some sort of variation on icing/cream cheese icing. I'd imagine cinnamon sauce would just be some sort of cinnamon and brown sugar combo, like you'd have in an apple dessert.

Re: Chocolate Bacon

Oh right, icing.

Mostly if I am going to eat horrible fried fatty food it must have chillies in it

We don't seem to have shredded beef, shredded pork anything here. I've had it in mexican restaurants but otherwise, no.

You can make it quite easily! My ex liked pulled pork so I learned to make it and I was surprised at how easy it is.

Re: Chocolate Bacon

See, I never cook slabs of meat. It sounds great, but I cook about 80 percent vegetarian. I think you cook for long amounts of time and then shred with a fork? I know I looked it up once.

Haha, I had to learn to cook things like meatloaf and pot roast and all because he liked that sort of typical American stuff. With the pork I browned it first, then stuck it in the slow cooker. But I think you can just stick the whole thing in a slow cooker. The worst part was shredding it, honestly.

I don't know if this would work for pork, but I learned that I can put cooked boneless chicken breasts in my kitchenaid stand mixer, plug it in, and have perfectly shredded chicken in minutes.

Also are you on FB? Add me there if you are!

The way my brother does pulled pork, you put a pork shoulder roast in a slow cooker, then douse it with barbecue sauce. Leave it in the pot until fork tender.

Re: Chocolate Bacon

Too visceral. But I'm intrigued, by douse do you mean pour 2 litres of BBQ sauce on top of? Or do you mean baste? Is there water as well?

And LOL Kestra I tried making slabs of meat for the same reason, ex male. Meatloaf, roast leg of lamb.. I just don't eat that way though and I am sure I will never make such things again. Meatloaf seems especially pointless, like some wartime invention (perhaps it is).

Yep, and another variation that you can get in Canada are beaver tails.

Re: Chocolate Bacon

This sounds like a great cooking thread for the divorced.

We should write a cookbook.
