Best Stampede Midway Food 2011 - 13

When it comes to serving food on a fair midway, you’ve got to keep it simple.

Take something, dip it in batter and then serve it up. Usually on a stick.

The 2011 Greatest Outdoor Show On Earth is underway and the Best New Midway Foods of the Calgary Stampede were served up last night to be dunked, dipped and dined on. And wouldn’t you know it, not a vegetable to be seen on the entire menu.

Macaroni and Cheese Pizza
It’s pizza and sauce with a bed of plain macaroni noodles and then bathed in cheese.

    My Visitors to Calgary were told about the wonderful “smells’ of the entrance to the Stampede and Midway. Not only were they doing the whole Chuckwagon/Rodeo thing.they were excited about our tales of fying back bacon, yummy onions piled high,the sweet smell of unhealthly foods cooked in oil and on the grills. They came back with no tales of yummy smells of onions and meat frying….thy came back with story’s from workers that most food was BROUGHT in and reheated on the grills and thats why our company couldn’t smell those AWESOME MIDWAY YUMMIES!!!!. Is that true. If so SHAME on the Stampede Board. When did you become the Airlines of the food product mentality. SHAME oN YOU if what they said and “DIDN’T SMELL ” are true ;-((((((((

    Is the pork chop on a stick easy to eat? Or will it get messy and all over your face?
