Chicken Fried Bacon!
served up with a side of gravy for dippin'!
:rofl: Only in Texas, y'all.
That'll definately give you a heart attack...
I think my health insurance would be cancelled if I ever admitted to eating that stuff.
Does chicken fried bacon mean it's bacon with chicken around it and fried?
After I try that, then I've had country fried chicken, country fried steak, chicken fried steak, none of those had chicken in them, as far as I know.
Country fried chicken without chicken in it?
In theory, chicken fried steak simply means fry in chicken fat, AFAIK.
Please pass the cholesterol.
And for desert fried ice cream with a battered and deep fried snicker's bar.
Well, add the batter fried zucchini and -
don't forget the Hot Sauce!
How about some fried cheese and some chicken fried salad? You could toss the salad with some high fat/high calorie creamy dressing, wad up the salad, dip it in batter and fry it! Oooh, I could throw in some of those deep fried jalapenos!
Sounds great! :tongue2:
Turbo makes GREAT jalapeño poppers!
In some places in Scotland you can get a battered deep fried pizza. If I remember correctly it weighs in at around 2000 calories which is the recommended daily intake of a healthy woman. But more often than not they are served with a side of chips most commonly eaten by slicing the pizza in half and creating a chip sandwich from the two halfs.
In Scotland, they will deep fry anything in batter, from mars bars to pizza! :yuck:
My mother is convinced that a Southerner invented salad dressing, after giving up on attempts to deep-fry lettuce.
Actually, you never had any great poppers at my place, Astronuc. I stripped out all the seeds and placenta to keep the heat to a minimum so your family would try them. I usually don't do that. Of course, the stuffing of cream cheese and crispy bacon and the topping of melted browned Monterey Jack are just a bit on the high-calorie side. :tongue2: Next time you visit, I'll make two batches - one with all the chilies' innards intact.
I didn't know you could order a piece of crap on a plate anywhere. Interesting.
You're just jealous.
There are some little diners in the deep south that seem to serve everything deep-fried. Just walk in, take a breath, and you're packing on the pounds. I draw the line at deep-fried breaded okra, though. That stuff is nasty no matter what you do to it - apart from making a base for gumbo. My work sometimes took me to the deep south for weeks at a time - all the way from east Texas to south Georgia and into Florida. Never happened to run into chicken-fried bacon, though.
Fried okra is a gift from the gods. It is the ONLY way to eat it (other than pickled). I won't eat gumbo with okra in it, when you boil okra it gets slimy and tastes nasty.
Ooh! You'd better not say that anywhere from Orange TX to Moss Point MS and perhaps beyond. Some of those folks get touchy about their recipes. I've had it with chicken and bacon, and closer to the coast, with every kind of seafood they could throw in the pot. Heaven!
Edit: To those who haven't been paying attention, this is the lady who extols the virtue of eggplant - a "vegetable" that is edible only in eggplant parmesan, and could easily be replaced in that dish by cardboard beer coasters.
edit to add: Okra without slime recipe.
:surprised Blasphemy!!!! Fried eggplant is to die for!!!! It's also incredible in dishes such as ratatouille and moussaka. :!!) :!!)
cardboard beer coasters You know, twisting_edge said the same thing.
I would kill right now for some fried okra and eggplant with a creamy horseradish sauce for dipping.
