Kris And Erin Try Fried Oreos At The Beauregard Watermelon Festival
This weekend, I ate a fried Oreo for the first time....EVER. Kris and I visited the Beauregard Watermelon Festival Saturday, and all I wanted to do was eat some weird festival food. Maybe a chocolate covered bacon-on-a-stick, something deep fried and wrapped in whatever, and the famous fried Oreo.
Maria Ravia, a local DeRidder, La resident, has been a vendor at the Beauregard Watermelon Festival for over 9 years, and all the proceeds collected from sales goes to the local Junior Livestock Association. When I asked "why a fried Oreo?" Ms. Ravia stated "because they are good and easy to cook at festivals".
And, this is a snack you can make at home (call me when you do, I will bring the milk). Take a hand full of Oreos, roll them in a sweet-dough like batter (similar to a Beignet batter), and you deep fry it for about 10 seconds. Drain the fried Oreo, cover with powdered sugar and Voila'! Eat and enjoy. I want to make these at home....every day.......all day.
