Were you ever eating a pickle and said to yourself, “Man, this would be so much better if only it was stuffed with a hotdog, then battered, and deep-fried”? Well hold on to your socks, boys and girls, because that’s precisely the latest trend at, you guessed it, state fairs!
We’re not saying this is healthy. We’re not claiming it has a lot of nutritional virtue. We are saying that this snack is a totally salty, cheesy craving crushing indulgence. And it’s something you should try at least once.
A “pogo” is what Canadians call corn dogs, and this snack here takes its inspiration from that carnival favorite. This pogo is like a corn dog… without the dog. Instead, it has a juicy pickle fried in pretzel batter! (And blanketed in nacho cheese, we might add.)
And it’s as simple (and delicious) as it sounds. For anyone who has ever eaten a corn dog before, you know the awesomness that is deep-fried meat on a stick, but throw in the brine-y goodness of a juicy, slightly crunchy pickle, and you’ve now extended your food pyramid.
The process is simple. You skewer a few whole dill pickles and coat them in ooey, gooey nacho cheese. You then freeze the pickles until the cheese has hardened and then dip them in a batter made with pretzel crumbs (and some other great stuff). The whole shebang goes into the fryer and comes out as one crispy-crunchy, juicy, ooey-gooey smorgasbord of a snack.
It’s really quite something that no one has dreamed this up before, or at least, were being selfish and keeping it tight-lipped, denying the rest of us the foodgasm.
8 large dill pickles
