1. The Texas version of donuts
Cowboys need protein in the morning, so they add meat to…donuts. Yes, donuts. Hypnotic Donuts sells a copycat of the King’s favorite sandwich, the bacon, peanut butter and banana smothered “Evil Elvis” donut. At Gourdough’s, order the “Mother Clucker” of them all — a donut topped with fried chicken and honey.
Walked into the green room this morning @crosstimberschurch and this was waiting for me to eat before I taught. Glazed donut with peanut butter, banana, and enough bacon for a platoon of soldiers. So obviously I ate it. And then went on to deliver the greatest sermon of my life. Must’ve been the donut. #HypnoticDonuts #TheElvis #Texas
2. BBQ brisket
Brisket is a cut of beef as tough as snakeskin boots if it’s not carefully courted like a southern belle. It disintegrates when massaged with spices and smoked overnight. Sliced brisket is dumped into omelets, served on bread, or enjoyed solo — don’t forget barbecue sauce.
