When I wrote my story about crazy Kansas State Fair foods this week, the craziest was missing.
When Susie Bernard submitted her menu to the fair, she didn’t include her Bacon Nizers, mainly because she was still perfecting the recipe.
Susie, who runs the Kathy-B’s BBQ and Bacon booth on Ft. Riley Blvd., has four kinds of Bacon Nizers.
One features a banana stuffed with fruit, cheese and other secret ingredients that’s completely wrapped in bacon and flash fried. Customers also can get Mexican, Philly steak or cheeseburger Bacon Nizers. These are made of tortillas stuffed with the appropriate ingredients, wrapped in bacon and flash fried. All come with a selection of sauces, ranging from cheese to chocolate to salsa.
Bernard said she wanted to up the ante on food wildness this year. “When you bite into the Bacon Nizer, you get all the ingredients plus the taste of bacon,” she said.
The booth is named in honor of Bernard’s sister, Kathy, also her longtime business partner, who is fighting cancer in Wichita.
Bacon Nizers are $6. The booth is bright green and three doors north of the KWCH booth.
