Fried Foods At Home

We're a fan of fried foods in our household.  We don't do it that often, but when we do we go crazy - mostly because we have a big pot of oil and it's not good to waste right? ;)

A family favorite are fries.  We usually bake it but, face it there's nothing like real fried fries.  And this time we even topped it with garlic, parsley and cheese - on the 'adult' side.  The kids had their side without the garlic.  Yum!!!

I don't think fried stuff is all that bad - just make sure your oil is a proper temperature so your food isn't just sitting there soaking up the oils.  Our foods usually comes up quite nice and not greezy at all.  If you can - invest in a thermometer.

What's that cooking in the oil?  Onion!  Not quite onion rings, but yummy none the less.  General recipe - season with dried garlic, salt and black pepper to taste.  Coat with flour, coat with egg white, and then with flour again (flour-egg-flour, let rest for a few minutes in between coatings).  I find that it works better if you like the first coating of flour sit for a while before applying the egg white.

Here's a new one for our household.  After numerous trips to Krispy Cremes doughnuts, we thought it might be fun to make some at home.  I didn't go for the 'from scratch' approach (shocking I know).  Instead, I saw this super quick and easy recipe HERE and thought it's worth a shot. Just break open a can of ready made biscuit dough, cut out of center and fry up.  Almost like cheating, it's so easy ;).

The hardest part of making the frosting, which I had the kids stir up while the doughnuts were frying

Okay these weren't as nearly as good as 'real' doughnuts but it wasn't bad for such a quick meal.  Will make again when the boys want a little treat as their breakfast.
