Fried Nacho Cheese: New State Fair Fare?
Nick Chipman's got his finger on the state fair food pulse, and he's betting that fried nacho cheese will reign as supreme new fair food by the end of this year. He's gone so far as to make it himself. Are you intrigued?
It seems like each year at state fairs across the country there's that one food that everyone is talking about. Last year it was deep fried butter. The year before that? A burger that utilized a Krispy Kreme doughnut as a bun. What will next year's big hit be? I'd like to nominate deep fried nacho cheese as an early front runner. I know that initially it may sound a bit ridiculous, but bear with me here.
It's created by freezing cubes of nacho cheese which are dipped in a mixture of egg and milk and then rolled in flour before being dropped into a deep fryer. Whereas regular flour is traditionally used in situations like this though, in this instance I swapped it out for corn flour. The result? The breading tasted just like a taco shell!
