Name that deep-fried food

Deep fried peanut butter and jelly sandwich

A few weeks ago at the Ballard Seafood Fest, my friend Nicole and I encountered this deep-fried treat, which has absolutely nothing to do with the ocean so I was a little mystified about why it was at a seafood festival. But hey–elephant ears are everywhere and nobody makes a fuss.

I’ve seen all kinds of deep-fried foods, but this was the first time I had even heard of this particular item. It certainly wouldn’t have occurred to me to drop one of these in a Fry Daddy. At first it sounded totally disgusting, and then I was intrigued. Nicole and I agreed to split half of one.

So what did we have?

Peanut Butter Goodness Deep Fried PB & J's

That’s right folks, a deep-fried peanut butter and jelly sandwich. I thought the fried PB&J would be heavy and greasy, but it was surprisingly light because of the batter, which is a secret recipe.

So who in health-conscious Seattle would make such a thing? The man with the fryer basket in his hand is Sahara Anthony Jr., the owner of Sandlot Sandwiches. And in case you were wondering, yes, he does cater individual parties.
