While those who attended last year's Calgary Stampede are sure to remember the famous Big Pickle Dogs, this year the annual rodeo is kicking things up a notch with its brand new Canadian Bacon Pickle Balls. While the new dish maintains the same combination of distinctly sweet and sour flavors, the corn dog-style format has been traded for bite-size rounds that are easy to share with hungry friends and family.
The Canadian Bacon Pickle Balls are a new addition to the Calgary Stampede menu, joining other outrageous concoctions such as Crispy Chicken Feet on a Stick, Cereal Monster Sandwiches and Deep Fried Jell-O. The bite-size pickle balls consist of a pickle stuffed with a hot dog, wrapped in juicy bacon, battered and then deep-fried until crispy and golden brown. The result is a tangy take on the traditional corn dog, due to the addition of the pickle.
Severed up at Big Coco’s Corndogs, the deep-fried appetizer is a great snack option for long days on the fairgrounds.
