Deep Fryer

Dan and Nora gave us a deep fryer for Christmas. We immediately put it to use.

Items that have gone into the deep fryer: pork meat balls, frozen breaded shrimp, snickers, twix bars, twinkies, french fries, tater tots, chicken nuggets, mozzarella cheese sticks, pizza rolls, frozen burritos, taquitos. Essentially anything not nailed down has gone into this thing. Remember that just because you CAN deep fry something, it doesn't mean you SHOULD deep fry it. Trust me, there have been some hard lessons learned. But you can't beat perfectly cooked french fries out of the deep fryer.

There's still a standing wager for deep fried grilled cheese.... If it happens, there will be pictures. Stay tuned.

I hope they gave you a gym membership along with the fryer. You might as well tape those deep fat fried objects right on top of your growing spare tire.

That's why whenever you read a recipe for a fried dish it's going to tell you to fry it at this temperature; because this is the perfect temperature in which this process can take place. Viet Hoa

I know some people shy away from frying food, but the truth is that when done correctly, frying is actually not as unhealthy a cooking method as you might think! Viet Hoa
