Cheesy bacon bombs, fried watermelon sampled at State Fair

Oklahoma City —

During my annual Oklahoma State Fair food hunt this year, I decided I wanted to try as many new items as possible.

My faithful readers (all three of you) already know my state fair food staples: Cheese on a Stick, Roasted Corn on the Cob, Jumbo Smoked Turkey Legs, Fried Wisconsin Cheddar Cheese Nuggets and the best dessert of all time, Silver Dollar Cinnamon Rolls.

There were items on the “New Food” list I simply had to try.

I tried a new entrance this year on the southeast side of the fairgrounds and found out I struck gold. One section of food nirvana started just a few feet in front of the gate I entered.

As I took a few steps toward all the vendors in front of me, my eyes quickly locked into one stand that stood out above the rest. The sign read “Bacon Habit.” As I approached the bacon-decorated stand and started reading what this vendor had to offer, I quickly realized I was most assuredly in Hog Heaven.

It’s no stranger that bacon and I have a strong relationship. And I had just discovered Bacon Treasure Island.

The Bacon Habit offered some now traditional bacon fair offerings such as Beer Battered Bacon (yum), Bacon Wrapped Chicken and Chocolate Covered Bacon, but there was much more. The Bacon Wrapped Hot Dog looked very good, and I’m willing to bet the Wild Boar Kabob was fantastic. Mushroom lovers would certainly adore the Porkabella Kabobs. I certainly could have made myself sick at this stand alone, but I narrowed my choice down to the Cheesy Bacon Bombs.

Talk about an explosion of great taste in your mouth. These bombs were pepperjack cheese covered in light biscuit dough, wrapped in bacon and deep fried until the melted cheese starts to explode out of the dough. I have to admit mine were not fresh out of the grease, but they were very good nonetheless.
