Lists, Paula Deen »
From cheesecake to alligator… if it’s edible, chances are Paula Deen’s coated it with batter and dumped it into her deep fryer! Here’s a quick rundown of Paula’s 7 craziest, most overindulgent deep fried recipes, y’all.
(Note: you can click the titles to go to the actual recipe page on FoodNetwork.com.)
1. DEEP FRIED MAC & CHEESE
Watch in amazement, shock, and probable disgust as Paula Deen wraps mac & cheese in bacon, deep fries it to a golden brown, and eats it before your very eyes. According to an FNH reader named Hannah, “I swear to God, only a southern woman could survive that mouthful of heart attack on a stick.”
2. DEEP FRIED STUFFING ON A STICK
This is basically a combo of breakfast sausage, crackers, carrots, and celery that’s been battered and fried. It doesn’t look appealing to me, but according to Rachael Ray, it’s on a stick, so KIDS WILL LOVE IT!
3. FRIED BUTTER BALLS
Yes, these heart-stopping cholesterol bullets are nothing but butter and cream chunks that have been battered and deep fried. This is just wrong on so many levels. But on the bright side, hey, at least they’re low carb!
4. DEEP FRIED LASAGNA
What’s more disturbing? The fact that she deep fried a lasagna, or that the lasagna itself is loaded with CHEDDAR CHEESE and CREAM CHEESE? I tend to agree with Sharon, a commenter at FoodNetwork.com, who said: “I was raised in an Italian home and this is an absolute abomination!”
5. DEEP FRIED BAGEL SANDWICH
Paula made this with Izaac Mizrahi on an episode of Paula’s Party. Not only was the bagel fried, but most of the individual components inside the sandwich were fried (and salted) as well. You can watch a video of this on YouTube.
6. ULTIMATE FANTASY DEEP FRIED CHEESECAKE
I don’t even want to know how many minutes I’d have to endure on the treadmill to burn this off. I’d eat it – and love every sinful moment. (On a completely unrelated sidenote, is it just me or does the Food Network have the worst recipe photos you’ve ever seen in your life? In this instance, I can’t quite tell if I’m looking at a piece of cheesecake, or a butterfly that just hatched in the forest.)
7. DEEP FRIED CHOCOLATE POUND CAKE
These sounds absolutely delicious! Too bad the photo makes them look like elephant droppings.
So there you have it! Have you tried any of Paula’s overly indulgent recipes? Let us know in the comments. And by the way, if you eat them on a regular basis, THIS IS DEFINITELY WHY YOU’RE FAT.
