The funnel cake burger brings the state fair to your house

Offering a chance to experience all the joy of state fair food without the temptation of riding the Gravitron immediately after eating it, the amateur chef at Culinary Bro-Down -- one of our favorite Instagram personalities -- has unveiled a recipe for a funnel cake burger. The recipe, which comes after a philosophical dissertation about food porn and good ol' fashioned porn (dude goes to UCLA, obviously), includes a how-to on making the savory fried cakes that act as buns, plus a strawberry-rhubarb ketchup. Admittedly, it's a pretty advanced recipe. But at the very least it might inspire you to toss a Whopper between a couple donuts. Just stay the hell away from the Tilt-A-Whirl for a while.
