Deep fryer

Does anyone have a deep fryer?? If so what do you use it for, I got one today for fries, my kids love french fries at Burger King and I cant affored to go out all the time and get them so I figured we could make them at home. Please give me some cool ideas that I could make in it for my kids that they would love. Thank you

  • i use mine for fries, sweet and sour pork, hasbrowns, i love it, i have yet to try some onion rings, BUT i will be doing that soon! i love my deep fryer. Oh and i've tried all hte french fries at walmart, and they all have this greasy taste to them, so oddly enough, the cheapest ones i could find, from my local dollar tree store, ($1 for a pretty big bag) are the best ones out there! Good luck, i would definately invest, but you have to remember, they aren't goign to taste like burger king.

  • MMMM deep fryer..seriously what cant ya fry??

    My favorite is dougnuts.You take biscuit dough and tear a hole in each one and deep fry them until golden brown roll them in a cinnimon sugar mixture.I strongly suggest doing this in fresh oil.

    Walmart has awsome catfish!

    I also cut chickn breast into pieces and bred them in flour or bred crumbs.You can either serve them like that or add it to something.Floured pieces are good in hot sauce,salads etc. Bread crumb chicken is good in chicken parmesean or other italian dishes.

    Blooming onions,mushrooms and eggs rolls are awsome too!

    OHH I almost forgot,my favorite is cheese sticks..http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Fried-Mozzarella-Cheese-Sticks/Detail.aspx
