Fried Ravioli
Remember last Thursday’s impossibly easy slow-cooker Pasta e Fagioli? Well, these here cheesy, crunchy Fried Ravioli go great with the stuff. And like the soup, fried ravioli are all eat with none of the sw- that usually precedes it. 

There are few things that I love more than Fryday recipes, but halfway homemade Frydays would have to be one of them. Use store-bought ravioli and this stuff will come together in no time. Let’s get to it.

Fried Sundried Tomato Goat Cheese with Salad

Frydays need to get healthier around here. But, you know, in our own time. That means we’re taking baby steps, which really means we’re just putting what we fry on top of a salad and calling it “better for you.” So think of these as nothing more than giant, warm, gooey, crunchy sundried-tomato-goat-cheese croutons. Are they better for your waistline? Probably not. Better for the general enjoyment of your life? Most definitely.

Happy Fryday.

Fried Cinnamon-Sugar Biscuits

When holiday potluck number 5 rolled around, I was hurting. Having a food blog comes with certain expectations that one feels pressured to meet. Add to that final exams and a wacky work schedule, and I found myself making cupcakes at 2am one night and baking cookies at 6am the next morning. I was on an unsustainable path.

Luckily, I have no qualms about getting a little help from the Pillsbury Doughboy from time to time, and these halfway-homemade fried cinnamon-sugar biscuits with a cream-cheese sauce came to the rescue.

Fried Cinnamon Apple Rings | fortune goodies

My love for frying food is alive and well. Thanks in large part to these fried cinnamon apple rings. I can’t say enough good things about them, but all you need to know is they’re easy on the eyes and tongue. Think of them as mini apple pies in the form of onion rings. Now think about yourself enjoying one. Why stop there? Go for it and try making a batch of your own.

Fried Thanksgiving Balls | Fortune Goodies

I’ve been waiting to share this recipe for quite some time, and I’m very pleased that time is now. Happy Fryday. 

Thanksgiving is now less than two weeks away, and because it’s one of my favorite food holidays, I wanted to leave you with enough time to add this very necessary and very relevant recipe for Thanksgiving balls to your Turkey Day menu. I believe I’ve accomplished that.

What’s a Thanksgiving ball? It’s a fried ball of mashed potatoes and stuffing, and it even comes with a cranberry dipping sauce. It’s my three favorite parts of Thanksgiving dinner quite literally rolled into one. Make them as I did with mashed potatoes and stuffing prepared specifically for frying, or make them using your Thanksgiving leftovers. I don’t care how you need to make them. Just make them.

Onion Rings

Unlike last week’s healthier baked fries, this week’s Fryday post is unapologetically bad for you. Bad for your heart, but good for your soul.

I only know of one person who doesn’t care for onion rings. So why then don’t all fast-food establishments serve them? Five Guys doesn’t. McDonald’s and Shake Shack don’t either. Is it because onion rings are too much work? Because let me tell you, they’re not. Join me after the jump and you’ll see what I mean.
