Deep Fry

Deep Fry X Highlights:
  • Scotch Eggs. A hard-boiled egg wrapped in spicy sausage meat rolled in breadcrumbs and tossed into the fryer. Mad props to Emilio for handmaking them!
  • Mini waffles. Thanks to Becca and Jed! Extra gold stars to Connor, who then took two mini waffles, put marshmallow fluff in the middle, coated the whole thing in funnel cake batter, and deep fried it. Wow. Way better than the deep fried twinkie!
  • Homemade potato chips. Ann & Neal carefully julienned potatoes...boy were they good with some spicy powder on 'em afterwards.
  • Our first explosion! Connor made a donut out of funnel cake batter, but it had an air bubble in it and it exploded. It was hilarious, but only because no one suffered any lasting damage. ;^)
