Crazy Deep Fried Foods

An article I read not too long ago said it best,

“If it exists, it can be deep-fried.” – The Daily Meal

They give their top 10 Craziest Foods Ever Deep Fried:

  1. Watermelon – Not sure this sounds good.
  2. Cookie Dough – I’ve had this, and it is glorious!
  3. Baconnaise – I guess this is a bacon flavored mayo and while I like them both, I can’t imagine eating a spoonful of the stuff, deep-fried or not.
  4. Corn on the cob – This actually sounds interesting. I think I might want to grill the corn a bit first.
  5. Nutella – I’ve had deep-fried chocolate bars and this seems like a variation on that theme.
  6. Cadbury Creme Eggs – I’d try it. I have to eat one of these eggs every Easter season.
  7. Butter – Um….See my comment for baconnaise.
  8. Bubble Gum – Not gonna do it.
  9. White Castle Burgers – Make it another slider and I’m in.
  10. Salsa – I think I have to make that!

Chicken Parm Meatballs

Prep Time: 30 minutes | Cook Time: 40 minutes | Servings: 8 (Scaled)


Coarse salt and pepper
1 1/2 pound spaghetti
3 1/2 cups plain dried breadcrumbs, divided
1 cup whole milk
2 pound ground white-meat chicken
4 cups vegetable oil
6 ounces fresh mozzarella, cut into 16 pieces
6 cups marinara, warmed
chopped fresh parsley, for serving


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta according to package instructions; drain.

2. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, combine 1/2 cup breadcrumbs, milk, 1 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. Add chicken and stir until just combined (do not overmix). In a medium straight-sided skillet, heat oil over medium until it registers 350 degrees on a deep-fry thermometer.

3. Place remaining 1 1/4 cups breadcrumbs in a shallow dish. Divide chicken mixture into 4 portions and flatten each into a disk. Place 4 mozzarella pieces in center of each, then form disk into a ball around cheese. Coat balls in breadcrumbs and fry until golden brown, 5 minutes, turning once. With a slotted spoon, transfer meatballs to a paper-towel-lined rimmed baking sheet and let drain 1 minute.

4. Discard paper towels and transfer sheet to oven. Bake meatballs until chicken is cooked through, about 14 minutes. Divide pasta among four bowls and top each with marinara and a meatball. Sprinkle with parsley.
