There is something just so magical and delicious about fried food.
No matter what kind of breading you’re using, from panko to a thick flour mixture, fried food never ceases to amaze. Simply put, it is the best way to eat anything, really, flavor-wise. Unfortunately, though, we must all learn to resist and practice moderation unless we want to walk down the road to heart problems and other heath issues far beyond an expanding waistline.
But if you only indulge every once in a while, then it’s even more special when you do treat yourself. State fairs are notorious for their fried food. We’ve all heard of fried dough, corn dogs, and even fried Oreos and fried pickles. However, there is so much more that you can do with a deep fryer, and it’s absolutely incredible.
These 15 foods you can deep fry are truly going to blow your mind. Do you think you will seek out or even make any of these foods on your own?
