and the Winner is…..”DEEP FRIED CUBAN ROll”  and “FRIED THANKSGIVING DINNER” in the 2013 Big Tex Choice Awards.

The Cuban Roll took the win in the best taste category and the Fried Thanksgiving Dinner won in the most creative category.

The Cuban Roll is described 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, in a State Fair press release. The roll is served with a side of majo sauce for dipping.

Fried Thanksgiving Dinner is described thusly: 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!
