On-a-stick recipes are deliciously deep-fried finds at the fair. But you don't have to hit up a fair to try these tasty concoctions – from hot dogs to salad to brownies!

Late summer is state fair time. The granddaddy of them all is the Iowa State Fair, held Aug. 8-18, 2013. During the event, visitors can make their way through 200 food booths and sample over 60 (yes, 60!) foods on a stick. You can find just about anything on a stick, from calorie-defying deep-fried butter to healthier fare, like skewered smoothies. Each year, the fair introduces new foods to entice visitors to try even crazier culinary combinations. This year, you can try shrimp corn dogs, bacon wrapped pork riblets, deep-fried brownies, deep-fried sweet corn corndogs, jalapeno corndogs and much more.
But you don't have to go all the way to the fair to get a taste of food on a stick. Make some of your own versions with these recipes. Bonus: Most of them aren't fried.
