Think about it. A hot dog and a scoop of cold potato salad always taste better during the summer months. A bowl of tomato soup and a grilled cheese is a perfect winter lunch and a fresh salad is a popular choice when spring hits the Great Lakes State. Let's not forget about fall, when almost everyone craves anything and everything pumpkin spice or pumpkin flavored.

The beauty of Michigan's most popular savory fried food is it also pairs nicely with all of the above (even pumpkin spice). This popular food item can be prepared in countless ways. Fried, baked, or I suppose even broiled.

You can top this tasty treat with mayonnaise, guacamole, gravy, barbecue sauce, ranch dressing, ketchup, and cheese sauce. Michigan's most popular savory fried food can be paired with cheeseburgers and steaks or served as an appetizer or a main course.

Do you think you now know what Michigan's most popular savory fried food is? Can I get a drumroll, please? Without further ado, according to Shane Co., Michigan's most popular savory fried food is french fries.

More often than not people do not agree on much, but the fact that Michiganders love french fries is something I think a majority of us totally agree with. That being said, I am sure you have your favorite place for delicious french fries. Whether you love fries from McDonald's or the Rosemary Fries at the Corner Bar & Grill in Fenton - in my opinion, there is no such thing as bad french fries.

Okay, maybe cold fries aren't so great - but we will still eat them. Check out the most popular savory fried food in every state below.
