State Fairs are back, baby! And so many memories are associated with going to the fair. Family bonding. The rides. Cute, smelly animals. Sweating from places you shouldn’t. And--the food.
Yes, food is the #1 reason people love going to fairs—whether it’s the community fair or the state fair.
So, why not start pre-gaming for the fair with a tasty state fair-inspired treat you can whip up at home?
Crack Wise Nug: July 11th is National State Fair Food Day. There’s your excuse.
Deep Fried Oreos
*recipe courtesy of cookiesandcups.com
2 quarts (approximate) vegetable oil for frying
1 cup Bisquick
2/3 cup milk
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
15 Oreo cookies
Powdered sugar for dusting
Fill a deep skillet or Dutch Oven 2 – 3 inches deep with vegetable oil. Heat the vegetable oil over medium heat until it reaches 350°F.
While the oil is heating, whisk the Bisquick, milk, 1 teaspoon vegetable oil, and egg together. Line a large plate with paper towels and set aside. Working in batches of 3, drop each Oreo into the batter, and using a fork, remove the Oreo from the batter, tapping off excess, and place directly into the hot oil. Fry the Oreos 3 minutes on each side until golden brown. Using a slotted spoon, remove the fried Oreos from the oil and transfer to lined plate to absorb excess oil. When the Oreos have cooled, and are no longer hot, dust with powdered sugar.
