Something Fried? Howabout a SKUNK EGG?

The Texas State Fair has packed up all its fried goodies and left in a huff, but no tears should fall for all the fryer aficionados left in the lurch. I read about this a while back in the Waco Tribune,
but just now got around to checking it out. Most Texans have heard an onion called a Skunk Egg, but this fried concoction is truely a Texas Tribute!


Bakery on Franklin
Downtown Waco is getting a kolache shop called Gerik’s Ole Czech Bakery & Deli at Sixth Street and Franklin Avenue — the former home of the Olive Branch restaurant.
“We hope to open within a couple of weeks, no later than mid-June,” said Bryan Anderson, who will own the place with wife Jeanne.
They will serve an array of kolaches, pastries and sandwiches. They also will sell something called a skunk egg, which is a mixture of chicken, cheese, onion, jalapeno and bacon that is battered like chicken-fried steak and then deep fried.
That egg is what the Andersons are best known for at their Gerik’s bakery and restaurant in West, where they also own The Pizza House.



those are my little fingers holding that delicious skunk egg.
