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.

Get the complete recipe at Oh Bite It.


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.

grilled cheese doughnuts

Imagine this: melted cheese in between layers of flaky crescent dough in the shape of a doughnut. It sounds like heaven, right? Amy of Oh Bite It made it happen.

The recipe requires a few ingredients and little elbow grease. You’ll need cheese slices (she recommends Velveeta), Pillsbury crescent dough, round cookie cutters, and oil for frying. So simple and yet so perfect.

fried candy corn

Looking for something new to do with candy corn? Amy of Oh, Bite It has an idea for you: deep fry the yellow, orange, and white pieces of sugar. I can’t say that it looks appealing, but the process could create a tasty ball of melted candy. She used Pillsbury crescent dough for the breading and put four pieces of candy corns into each ball. Then she deep fried away and made ooey gooey candy corn puffs.

LA-based donut shop/culinary dream factory California Donuts has a rather unique donut that’s been garnering quite a bit of attention lately. It’s called the Snickers Bar Donut. Why? Because it features an entire Snickers candy bar inside of a flippin’ donut.

Mind blown? Yeah, well it gets even better: the donut is topped with peanuts and chocolate chips too. So if I were you, I’d head on over to California Donuts and pick up one of these tasty treats. The shop’s Instagram page makes it look like the Snickers Bar Donut is available intermittently, so just check before you decide to pop over for a visit.

deep fried psl

The baking genius behind deep fried tequila shots has come up with a new delicious sounding fall treat: deep fried pumpkin spice latte. The Starbucks drink is all the rage this time of year, and Oh, Bite It has mixed the beverage with cake. Cubes of pound cake were dipped into a pumpkin spice latte and fried in hot oil until they became golden on all sides. It’s enough to make me consider buying a deep fryer.

Get all the details at Oh, Bite It.
