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!

    • Sonar works from above, cameras need to be submerged. What am I missing here?
    • I've also had good luck spray painting PVC.  Biggest thing I found is to do lots of light coats, the PVC makes the paint want to run in a hurry.
    • I believe you can do this with the Lowrance HDS 9 and above.
    • I'll go with another loss in overtime.
    • Calling a win tonight, it's going to happen!
    •   You'll probably run into plenty of "experts" among the experts, too...   Floor heat is nice, but definitely not the best option if you're looking for the best efficiency, since it is a slow recovery system.  If you were looking for efficiency and lowest cost, I would suggest looking into a mini-split heat pump to complement the gas furnace if you have off-peak available.   (Disclaimer: Not an expert either, but I have stayed at a Holiday Inn Express a few times.)      
    •   Same here. I have 3 of them. Use them in the SUV, Boat, Snowmobile, and Dual Sport bike. They seem to work better on my sled in the winter with no issues at all over my old ifinder which would eat batteries in the cold. They are discontinued but you can still find them out there on the List or bay once in a while. I like them as they are a crossover and can be used on the road or with a lake map which is the main thing I use them for. Wish they would bring something like it back.
    • Ridiculous... but it would work.  Sorry to offend, guess I don't get quite so fired up about concrete.
    • Concrete. Way easier to plow. My parents have a gravel driveway WORST THING EVER! Impossible to snow blow because of all the rocks always wet and muddy. Sure it's cheaper but in the long it's not worth the cheaper price. 
    • I have used a Lowrance XOG (no longer available) on my boat and on my snowmobile for years now with no problems with cold or speed of tracking. I use a Lakemaster card for Minnesota lake for fishing, a Navionics card for coverage in Canada and LOW for winter and summer fishing, and a Red Pine snowmobile trail map for riding. Have ridden at 30 below without any problem with the touchscreen, it is hooked up to sled power, so it probably is getting some heat, and I put it inside my jacket when I get off. I recommend that you do a little research on the available chips for where you are going because different manufacturers use different chips. My use pretty much limits me to Garmin, and expect to pay couple to $300+ for chips for where I travel.
