Mmmmm...Deep-fried Butter

Tuesday, September 29, 2009 | |

My childhood BFF Wendy went to the State Fair of Texas near her current home in Dallas this past weekend and enjoyed the bounty of the State Fair -- corndogs, funnelcake, turkey wings, Texas tater tornado, and deep fried butter. Yes, that's right, DEEP FRIED BUTTER! The evil mastermind behind this artery-clogging creation, Abel Gonzales Jr., is the current State Fair Fry King and has come up with a slew of deep fried goodies over the past year including Fried Coke, Texas Fried Cookie Dough and Fried Peanut Butter, Jelly and Banana Sandwiches. For this year's fair he came up with an idea of scooping a golf-ball sized ball of butter (your choice of garlic, cherry or grape flavored), freezing, battering and dropping the little bundles of butter into the deep fryer.
