4. Deep-Fried Nachos Supreme

Minnesota State Fair

The perfect food (nachos), made more perfect by deep-frying. Covered with taco meat, guacamole, more nacho cheese, and sour cream, and served with jalapeños on the side.

This is a fish-shaped buttermilk miso waffle cone filled with vanilla ice cream and balsamic-roasted strawberry compote, graham cracker crumble, and a fresh strawberry. ALMOST too cute to eat.

10. Sheep Dog

Minnesota State Fair

A lamb dog served with garlic sautéed kale (Kale! At the State Fair!), raw fermented sauerkraut, quinoa, and honey mustard drizzle. If you want it gluten-free, skip the bun.

11. Paneer on a Spear

A new take on the Fair classic of fried cheese, this is Indian-seasoned paneer cheese coated with a local craft beer batter, fried, and served with tomato garlic chutney.

Don't be fooled — this is not JUST a corn dog. This is custom-ground sausage on-a-stick made with blueberries, apples, wild rice, maple syrup, and cayenne, all dipped in a homemade corn dog batter and deep-fried. OMG.
