'Come Join The Fun' was what was advertised at the Solano county fair. We decided to go because we heard that there might be chocolate covered bacon and onion rings. Our visit to the fair was very brief. I am not sure if it was the economy or the twelve dollar beers. The fair was a pathetic shell of its former glory. Vendors, exhibitors, entertainers and customers were sparse. We never did find chocolate covered bacon. We decided to go home and create some fun of our own. We are going to make some pulled pork appetizers.


  1. 1 cup chopped pulled pork
  2. 8 ounces of cream cheese softened
  3. 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  4. 3 tablespoons barbeque sauce
  5. salt & pepper
  6. 1 pound package of wonton wrappers
  7. 1 egg beaten

Combine first 5 ingredients in a bowl. Take a won-ton wrapper and place in your hand. Dip a finger in beaten egg and run your finger around perimeter of wrapper. Place 1 tablespoon of filling in center of wrapper. Fold wrapper in half and press edges. Heat some oil to 375 degrees. Fry until golden brown. (Aprox 3 minutes).

I am not sure how these compare to chocolate covered bacon but they sure hit the spot. These smoky, creamy pillows of love were a porky delight. It is a great use of leftover pulled pork. The uncooked pork pillows will freeze very well for use at a later time. See you soon!

Genius, NO SHIT about the prices (excuse the language).

How on earth does a young family do it these days. How sad.

But your apps look great and chocolate covered bacon is very easy (dip it in melted caramel for an extra zing!)

The Alameda County Fair is advertising that they have chocolate covered bacon. (Yuck!)

Those are some knock out appetizers! So what are you going to call them, because they need a name.
