Savory Churros

 

I know. I know what you’re thinking. Churros are a dessert. Why ruin a beautiful thing by twisting it into something it isn’t? That’s where I’ll stop you.

 

Think about all of the times the combo of sweet and salty has totally blown your mind. Caramel corn. Maple bacon. Chicken and waffles. PEANUT BUTTER & JELLY. Now picture a caramel corn churro. A maple-filled churro topped with bacon bits. Fried chicken... And CHURROS. A jelly-filled churro with peanut-butter infused cinnamon sugar. I mean, the possibilities are endless. 


Now if we’re going to take this one step further I want to circle back to chicken and waffles... and pivot towards corn dogs. Meat + pastry = a delicious treat enjoyed for centuries around the globe. We took your favorite carnival foods and elevated them with gourmet homemade churros. The result? A bacon-wrapped churro dog. 


Our bacon-wrapped churro dog made headlines in 2019 when we first unveiled our sweet and savory combination. But, we had been working on savory churros for a while before that. In 2017, we officially developed an appetizer line of savory churros for its catering menu, and in the fall of 2018, we collaborated with Utah-based, internet sensation Susie Bulloch from Hey Grill Hey to expand our appetizer line of savory churros to introduce new grilled meat flavor combinations.

 

We wanted elevated, gourmet savory churros, not just a churro covered in salt and pepper instead of cinnamon sugar. So, our grilled meat churros included flavor options such as pulled pork with a sweet rub, grilled steak with a roasted jalapeño chimichurri and pickled red onion, and chicken curry, which have continued to be favorites among our catering customers. Our e-book full of homemade churro recipes includes our secret savory menu items and more!
