The Bacon Up Pup takes waffles and bacon for breakfast to a whole other level. It’s a Belgian waffle with bacon in the batter. It’s dipped in chocolate, topped with maple syrup, whipped cream, and bacon bits, and of course, served on a stick. Locate this combo at Granny’s Kitchen Fudge Puppies.


Breakfast Buddy Bowl

hash browns, maple syrup, scrambled eggs, cheddar cheese, bacon, biscuit, country sausage gravy, green onions

What’s most intriguing about this dish is that it’s not served in any old container. It’s all served in a waffle bowl at Lulu’s Public House, bringing a new meaning to the term “breakfast bowl.”

Although it doesn’t have bacon, this roasted corn on the cob comes lightly coated in crushed Doritos—the beloved, cheesy chip no one can resist—and drizzled with nacho cheese. Remain on the lookout for Texas Steak Out if this combo sparks your cheese-lovin' interest.


Deep-fried Avocado

This isn’t high on the crazy spectrum compared to the others, but it’s another wonderful food that someone decided to deep fry to make it even more delicious (and more fattening). Find the avocado slices dipped in lightly seasoned batter, deep fried, and served with chipotle ranch dipping sauce at O’Gara’s.


Pizzarito

flour tortilla, pepperoni, Italian sausage, risotto, mozzarella, marinara, garlic butter, Parmesan, Italian spices
