This is truly Fair food at its best.
If anyone wants to open a stand at their local Fair and sell these things, be my guest. You will probably make millions!
Just promise me – if I show up at your stand I get a couple free ones, okay?
Other than their fried awesomeness and poppable nature, what makes them great is the caramelized onions. Deeply browned onion is actually the key
to making any burger amazing. Adding them to these Fried Burger Bites makes them scream burger – instead of just being another version of meat inside bread.
So the next time you're craving Fair food, try these Deep Fried Burger Bites and you won't be disappointed!
Step one is to caramelize the onions. This step takes awhile, but is oh-so worth it!
Stuff the burger balls with cheese and some of those onions. Mmm...
Getting ready to stuff – but not so fast! These need to go into the oven first to cook.
Split up the dough and wrap up the cooked meatballs.
Then just fry them up!
This is exactly what you want to be eating in late summer and early fall. Grab an Oktoberfest beer and dig in! Dan Whalen knows this could be the next big fair food.
