Pot roast sundae tops list of new food at State Fair

4 posts in this topic

It’s not served on a stick, but it’s weird enough to make the list of memorable State Fair foods.

Pot roast sundaes and 17 other strange concoctions made the cut for new food items at the Minnesota State Fair, which starts on Thursday.

Spam, made by Hormel Foods Corp. of Austin, Minn., is the main ingredient in three of the new foods, and eight of the new foods are served on a stick.

The pot roast sundae consists of a scoop of mashed potatoes covered with roast beef, gravy, corn, and a cherry tomato—no ice cream. It’ll be available at Main Street Butcher Block.

Other new food items include:

Beignets: sweet fried dough.

Brat Burger: ground bratwurst in a grilled patty served on a pretzel roll.

Breakfast Spam Sandwich: Spam, egg and cheese.

Deep-fried Norwegian Banana Split: banana rolled in lefse, deep fried, topped off with ice cream and all of the toppings.

Fiddlestix: vanilla ice cream hand sliced, skewered, dipped in chocolate and rolled in chopped nuts.

Foot-long Desert Pizza On A Stick: pizza dough, sweet cream cheese, cinnamon and sugar, served on a stick.

Fruity Tooty Swirl: fresh fruit smoothies with a swirl of ice cream.

Fry Dog: french-fry encrusted deep-friend hot dog on a stick.

Funnel Cake Fries: funnel cake formed like french fries, served with chocolate dipping sauce.

Krumkake: thin crisp pastry rolled into a horn shape, filled with whipped cream and topped with fresh fruit.

Nacho Mama Dog: Tex Mex beef dipped in batter, deep fried and topped with cheese and all of the nacho fixings.

Open-faced Grilled Spam Sandwich: Spam burgers.

Peach Glazed Pig Cheeks: pork cheeks marinated in garlic, herbs, spices, and honey, served on a stick and grilled with peach chipotle glaze.

Spam Hot Dog.

Sunfish: sunfish filets served in a boat.

Swedish meatballs and gravy,

Tornado Potato: spiral-cut potato on a stick.

Thanks for the info! My daughter is leaving today for the 4-H livestock encampment. She'll be hunting down the Deep Fried Norwegian Banana Split.

I hope they don't find out the Sunfish is really Zander!

    • The back is back to normal, time to paddle past some city lake beaches today. Mostly to see if any fish are hanging on the edges, but ya never know who might be taking advantage of the last sunny days of fall. Fish on!  
    • Peanut butter vandal mistakes gathering for Trump rally Published October 21, 2016 Associated Press   Disorderly conduct charges are pending against a woman who authorities say smeared peanut butter on 30 vehicles outside a gathering in central Wisconsin that she mistakenly thought was a Donald Trump rally. WSAW-TV reports that investigators say the Monday night conservation group gathering in Amherst had nothing to do with politics. Authorities say the 23-year-old woman was drunk when she entered the meeting and began yelling about how she hates Trump. She departed when asked to leave, but authorities say she then used peanut butter to write offensive symbols and profanity on vehicles outside. She is free on bond. Amherst is 115 miles north of Madison.   Whaa ???    
    • A new contender for the most random question ever asked on this forum.    I'd assume you'd be fine as long as you are doing a leisurely drive in type camping trip and assuming you avoid spending excessive amounts of time at the local trampoline park.  However, I'm no doctor so perhaps ask one of the professionals who is providing your care.
    • Usually just one pair of socks, weight depends on the temp and what I will be doing.  Ice fishing, its one pair of heavy weight socks.  If i'm active its just a pair of medium weight socks.  It took me a little while to get used to them but now that I am I don't mind walking in them at all.  I've also never had wet feet in them.  I believe mine are the Arctic Pro's.
    • It sounds like you've got a lot of things in place to possibly make this work.  In the end you won't know until you try.  However, I'd still suggest you start small and just see how things go.  Your biggest asset is that you don't NEED this business.  You've already got a successful business and can afford to take it slow with this.  Start with selling a couple frames then maybe a shell or 10.  If  you find the right customer who is willing to be a guinea pig for a full build down the road then give it a shot when you feel ready.  See how things go with that and see where improvements need to be made in design/process and go from there.  You may find out that its a viable business that you want to invest more time and money into or you may find that you prefer to keep it small and only do a few quality houses a year.  After all you do have your main business still to run so you don't want this side business to take away time and resources from that.  On a related note if you do start the fish house business keep things separate financially so that if it doesn't work you aren't hurting your primary business at the same time.
    • While your here on this form you may want to look for some fishing help ideas for when you go camping?  I would suggest checking out this thread:Outdoor Discussion, Clean-ups, and Agendas. You can get a lot of good Trolling ideas on there since there are so many experienced Trolls that frequent it.
    • Enjoy the trip, and send lots of pics!
