The creator of chicken fried bacon, Frank Sodolak has passed away. Thirty years ago Frank Sodolak borrowed a few hundred dollars and made his idea a reality in a small restaurant (Sodolak's Original Country Inn" in Snook Texas, population about 500. It is about 80 miles from Houston. His bacon delight has been featured in Maxim Magazine, Discovery Channel, Travel Channel and more. Some call it Sodalak's saturated succulence.
“People hear about chicken fried bacon and they're like huh? But
when they eat it, they're like Wow!" explains son Curtis Sodolak.
"He left us a mini-empire, and we have to keep it going, and that's
my promise to him, and who knows, maybe one day, I'll pass it on to
my kids," said his son, Curtis.
PS - Even Emeril has come up with a Pecan-Praline candied bacon.
Seems everyone wants in on the act. Not sure why. Bacon
does not need toppings to be good.
