Americans will batter and fry ANYTHING!!
Dill pickle slices . . . Oreo cookies . . . candy bars . . . corn on the cob

Rhubarb pies (without strawberries)
Anything on "Chinese" restaurant menues
Hoppin' John
BBQ pulled pork sandwich with cole slaw atop
Fried Green Tomatoes
Cheeseburger with a Krispy Kreme Donut as a bun!!
frozen Dairy Treat (Dairy Queen)
BBQ Spaghetti (see Memphis, TN)
