If you've ever been to a state fair, then you've probably seen those extra-large pieces of fried dough. They're called elephant ears 'cause they're so big they kind of look like elephant ears! Our recipe for Fried Elephant Ears is easy to make, but BIG on cinnamon-sugary goodness.
This Sausage, Pepper, and Onion Sandwich is perfect any time of the year, whether we grill or pan-fry it. Close your eyes, wash it down with your favorite bubbly beverage, and you'll be back at the state fair all over again. And this time you won't have to pay for parking!
