We know it's bad for our health, but somehow we just can't get enough of artery-clogging fried foods because they taste so good. If you get tired of dry oven-roasted Thanksgiving turkeys, try deep frying them next time. Deep frying is not only a quicker way to cook a turkey, but it also produces a very moist and juicy bird with super crunchy skin. (However, deep frying whole turkeys is dangerous if not done properly -- take it from William Shatner, who nearly burned down his house
trying to deep fry a turkey.) Fried turkey isn't particularly unusual, but there are some pretty crazy, deep fried food ideas out there. Here are a few examples.
- In Austria, McDonald's recently offered a sandwich called the McRibster, which was essentially a McRib that had been breaded and fried. And as if that weren't enough, it also came with bacon and cheese (and some healthier stuff like lettuce and onions). [url]
- Fried butter balls first debuted at the State Fair of Texas in 2009. However, the Iowa State Fair took it to the next level last year with a 2-ounce stick of butter, dipped in cinnamon honey batter, deep fried, and then covered in a sugar glaze. [url]
- Every year, the San Diego County Fair features some interesting deep fried foods. Some examples include: fried Krispy Kreme chicken sandwiches, fried Twinkies, fried avocados, fried brownies, fried Klondike bars, fried frog legs, deep fried Girl Scout cookies, and deep fried Kool-Aid. [url]
