I know it's nowhere near as popular as a slow cooker or a bread machine but I have finally done it, after years of craving - I have bought a deep fat fryer and now I need to make all those lovely foods that visit me in my dreams.
So far we tried Felicity Cloake's perfect sweet potato fries and served them with some garlic mayo - they were amazing, crunchy, sweet garlicky - so I'm thinking what next?

Battered cod/white fish
Triple cooked chips
Maybe fried dough liberally sprinkled with icing sugar and cinnamon \

Any other things I really need to make?

Onion rings and battered mushrooms.

I’m so jealous. Dh won’t let us have one as I would deep fry everything!

My local pub do a flowering onion with a little salsa-ish dip. It’s sooo nice, I definitely recommend making it if you like onions.

blooming onion

SweetFry Wed 19-Dec-18 13:28:18

Is the blooming onion thing similar to tobacco onions?

Oh my God, I need a deep fat fryer - my mouth is watering here 😋

Croquetas. Little cylinders of white sauce with stuff in them - chicken and Serrano ham, or goats cheese and spinach are my top ones. Spanish food at its very best. They are a faff to make, but you can freeze them uncooked.

And have them with some of that garlic mayo. Heaven.

Can you buy those breadcrumbed jalapenos stuffed with cream cheese that cheap 4am pizza joints sell? They are my all time favorite! I could eat those every day.

Thisnamechanger Wed 19-Dec-18 17:10:42

Oh my God they do them in Iceland. Go OP go!!

‘Dh won’t let us have one as I would deep fry everything!’

LTB smile you don’t need that kind of negativity in your life!

Mmmm. Smoked haddock scotch eggs, jamon croquetas, salt and pepper squid, chicken liver doughnuts, haggis pakora.

I only allow myself to get the deep fat fryer out a few times a year, but when I do I go hard for a week, then eat salad for a week. Plus it means I only ever use nice fresh oil, which is much tastier and healthier.

'Chucky chicken'

Skin on chicken thighs, deep fried until the skin is really crispy with loads of salt on.
