The 2013 Big Tex Choice Awards have named Deep Fried Cuban Roll and Fried Thanksgiving Dinner as this year’s winners, according to CBSDFW.
After our visit from Abel Gonzalez on Friday, we were all certain that Fried Nutella would be a shoe-in. Deep Fried Cuban Roll and Fried Thanksgiving Dinner must be pretty awesome to topple the odds-on favorite.
Deep Fried Cuban Roll was given the Best Taste Award. The State Fair’s press release for the Big Tex Choice Awards describes it as:
A filling of slow cooked pork shoulder, chopped ham, Swiss cheese, pickles, and secret sauce is spread onto a slice of Swiss cheese, rolled up in pastry dough, and deep fried. Roll is served with a side of majo sauce for dipping.
The Most Creative Award was given to Fried Thanksgiving Dinner, which is described as:
Mama’s homemade stuffing and diced roasted turkey are rolled in a ball. Next it’s dipped in southern cream corn and rolled in seasoned corn meal – all fried to a crispy golden brown. Served with old fashion giblet brown gravy. The zesty orange cranberry sauce fills your dipping needs and results in a complete thanksgiving dinner, FRIED!
The State Fair of Texas opens September 28th and runs through October 21st. BigTex.com has more information.
