Things that are deep fried?

Go America.

I know about chicken and fries but you have such a great selection. Share them all.

Fried pickles. Yum. Dip in dilled ranch.

Oh god, fried pickles are the best. Especially if it's a really sour dill.

I also love, love, love onion rings.

Twinkies & Oreos. And sticks of butter.

My peoples are responsible for creating one of the bizarrest and nastiest versions of deep fried foods in America and for that I am truly sorry. But the fasnacht does practically make up for it so all should be forgiven.

I saw fried Coke in TV but it was just fried Coca-Cola syrup.

I believe I've only encountered fried ice cream at Mexican restaurants?

I have never tasted ranch but for some reason it sounds like it would be manure flavored.

Deep fried okra is quite good.

Onion rings.

Deep fried chicken and deep fried donuts are the only two things I miss from the U.S. Deep fried onion rings are relatively easy to find, however.

R11, I was just about to mention fried ice cream! One of my first jobs was a cook at Chi Chi's. It was rolled in a combination of crushed corn flakes and cinnamon sugar.

Hot links - actually, any cured tube of meat.

Liver and catfish are redeemed by the right bread coating.

And the perfect potato is fried, but we don't do that any more.

Navajo fry bread. I actually thought I had invented it on my own back in the days that I had no pot to piss in and I LOVED it. Years later I found it's been a thing in the Southwest for ages. It's delicious and I mean it's literal water, salt and flour (though I like to add some parmesan when I can) making it the cheapest delicious food in existence. Yay for Fry bread!

American has NOTHING on Scotland, my dear DLers. As R16 has already added on of the most frightful delicacies that good ol' Alba has to offer, let me contribute something uniquely nightmarish that only the Scottish could eat, alongside haggis: deep fried battered pizza!

Variation on a deep fried pickle:

Don't remember where I saw this, but it was delish.

You get some pickle spears, lay them out and pat dry. Get a block of something like pepper jack cheese, and do a nice thick slice of cheese, the length of the spear. Lay one slice of cheese and one spear on an egg roll wrap and roll it up, then deep fry. We've done this combo (pickle & spicy cheese) with a nice creamy dip. Or you can do a non-spicy cheese with a chipotle mayo dip.

I'm not a fan of ranch, R12. You're not missing anything.

I've seen fried squid at Italian restaurants (calimari).

by Anonymousreply 30October 13, 2021 3:43 PM

Fried squid is common everywhere, as are fries or chips.
