Fried, fried, fried

Last weekend’s 32nd annual Alligator Festival in Luling offered an array of fried stuff:  alligator (of course), shrimp, chicken, Twinkies, Oreos, and…..chicken-fried bacon.

Move over,deep fried butter:  fried bacon’s got you beat, especially when it’s battered, surrounded by fried sweet potatoes, and topped with powdered sugar.

How was it, you ask?  Very battered, with a pronounced smoky flavor.  The bacon fat was a tad chewy, without any of the crispy texture you want in bacon.  Fried bacon is all gimmick, compared to the (slightly more palatable) fried Oreo.
