Default What would you deep fat fry?

Flicking through tele last night, one of those cooking shows had a place that would deep fat fry anything for you....kind of gross, yet awesome at the same time.

So what would you fry?

I'm thinking a battered, deep fat fried BLT could be good

Sandly I don't have a deep fat fryer so will be relying on the Houston Rodeo once again this year to provide my deep fried treats. Last year it was oreos and of course the famous chicken fried bacon. I know that Nigella likes a deep fried bounty and I come from Stonehaven, Aberdeenshire home of the deep fried mars bar.

Also I find if you call anything deep fried 'tempura' it sounds much healthier

Texas Fried Caviar – Texas version of a southern good luck staple. Black-eyed peas are fried and laced with special spices blended with Old Bay® Seasoning and are available in regular or spicy. Find them in Cotton Bowl Plaza (next to Cotton Bowl steps), inside the Auto Building, near Big Tex & on the Thrillway.

If it's the same show I saw, I must say I particularly like the guy with the t-shirt that had the work "bollocks" on it. Made my day.

I'm probably over thinking this, and I know they are deep fried to begin with but I wonder what battered chips would taste like?

My local chippy did a great battered sausage and I had a nice battered burger in Edinburgh so I can only imagine battered, double deep fried chips would be perfection. Smother them in chippy curry sauce, couple of (jars of) pickled onions to go with it . . .

Mmmmmm, bliss

Taco Bell 99c taco anyone?

Brannigans used to do a deep fried sandwich...can't remember what it was called...I ordered it once by mistake, ate a quarter and felt sick...wonder if it was partly responsible for their downfall......

Brannigans still around? I think they've all closed in MA, or it seemed so...but then everyone gets food poisoning from that place, well everyone we knew who went in the past, and myself that one time

Default Re: What would you deep fat fry?

When I was kid, our local chippy sold Pizza. They'd grab a frozen one, unwrap it and throw it straight into the fryer. I remember them as being really good, but that was back in the days before proper Pizza places in the UK.

Yeah, they're all closed down round here too. Think the whole chain went under. Only went to one once.......

Lakersdarge is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Re: What would you deep fat fry?

I always wanted to try one of those deep fried turkeys at Thanksgiving, instead of the traditional roasted kind. They sell those big fryers at some stores, but they're not cheap for only using once a year, and the oil is probably going to cost a bit too...
