deep fried champagne toast

In case you haven’t looked at your calendar today, it’s New Year’s Eve! The year 2014 is almost at an end, and 2015 kicks off in mere hours. It’s tradition to ring in midnight with a champagne toast, but Amy of Oh Bite It has another idea: you can eat your champagne. She’s deep fried eggnog and many other beverages, and the technique for deep fried champagne is the same. Use cubes of pound or sponge cake, dunk it champagne, throw it in hot canola oil, and dust the cubes with powdered sugar.

Happy New Year’s!

Get all the details over at Oh Bite It.

burger

You have Matthew Ramsey to blame for the fact that you just started drooling. It starts with two “cheeseburger waffles” for the buns which sandwich fried chicken, sriracha mustard, rocket salsa, smoked bacon, American cheese, and a dill pickle in between. Yes, please!

deep fried gingerbread men

It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and that means gingerbread flavored everything can be found in seasonal sections of stores. The spicy tang of ginger snaps and gingerbread cookies is synonymous with the holiday season, but if you’re looking for something different to do with gingerbread men this year, Amy of Oh Bite It has you covered. She took a package of already made gingerbread men cookies, dipped them into pancake batter and milk, and fried them. Yeah, I’m on board with this idea.

koolaid breaded onion rings

Nick of Dude Foods is back in his weird food lab again, and this time he had to come up with a recipe using a SodaStream Play that he received. Rather than brewing a beverage, he decided to make Kool-Aid breaded onion rings. Specifically, tropical punch Kool-Aid. He made the Kool-Aid with the SodaStream and mixed it with flour and coated sweet onions in the mixture before frying them. This idea goes on the list of interesting recipes that I will never feel compelled to try making at home.

deep fried eggnog

Amy of Oh Bite It has become somewhat of an expert on turning beverages into deep fried treats. This is the lady who came up with a way to deep fry tequila shots.

Her latest beverage turned snack is deep fried eggnog with a rum glaze. As far as I’m concerned, anything you can do to make eggnog more appealing is a fantastic idea. The cubed dessert is simply pound cake dipped in eggnog and fried. Yum.

shrimp cannon copy 2

In this strange but highly amusing Japanese video, shrimp are fired from an air cannon. What’s more, as they hurl towards their final target, they fly through a gauntlet that batters and fries them. I wish I could use this machine at home. Though, in all honesty, I’d probably shatter all of my windows.

Watch all the shrimp-cannon action after the break…

deep fried thanksgiving dinner

It’s time to deal with Thanksgiving leftovers. While heating up your turkey, mashed potatoes, and cranberry sauce in the microwave is a fine option, you can get more creative. Amy of Oh Bite It decided to see what the leftovers would be like stuffed into some dough and deep fried.

She put together a bowl of Thanksgiving dinner (this is not for those of you who don’t like different kinds of food to be mixed), stuffed them into circles of crescent dough, and fried them in hot oil. I’m intrigued. Heck, it could improve the taste of bland food.

FruitLoopsBreadedEggYolks2

Just when I think Nick from Dude Foods can’t come up with anything weirder, he proves me wrong. I’ll learn one of these days. His latest creation stars egg yolks cooked sous-vide (a method of cooking food sealed in airtight bags in a water bath or steam), breaded with Froot Loops and deep fried. He used an Anova Precision Cooker to make the eggs and covered the yolks in crushed Froot Loops. He insists they’re delicious.
