Fair Fare: Recipes Inspired by the State Fair

August 15, 2011

By Blair Thomas

There’s something about this time of year that makes us crave a delicious, golden, deep-fried hot dog on a stick.

Maybe it’s the thick heat of late August or the nostalgia that seems to always come with the end of another summer. Or maybe it’s simply because it is that wonderful time of year when the Ferris wheels and carnival games park themselves next to the livestock pens and the butter cows, and open their doors to another state fair season.

So in the spirit of all of the state fairs popping up across the country this month, here are some of our favorite fair-inspired fare (pun intended):

Homemade Corn Dogs

Grilled Corn on the Cob

Chocolate Fried Pies

Burgers with Beer Cheese Sauce

Oreo Lollipops

Caramel Corn
