Potato Latkes with Cranberry Applesauce

Potatoes are probably the last thing you need right now, but I couldn’t let this week pass without sharing a recipe for Thanksgivukkah-appropriate latkes with cranberry applesauce. 

Better known as Thanksgiving, yesterday was also this year’s first day of Hanukkah. The two haven’t coincided since 1888, and it won’t happen again for another 79,811 years! How crazy is that? Luckily these latkes, better known as potato pancakes, are pretty straightforward to pull off, so you don’t have to wait for the next Thanksgivukkah to make them happen.

Cinnamon-Sugar Sweet Potato Fries with Marshmallow Dip

Take a good look at this picture. Can you figure out what I’ve done? 

I took the traditional Thanksgiving sweet-potato-marshmallow casserole and gave it a fresh new eat-me-with-your-digits makeover. I present to you: baked cinnamon-sugar sweet potato fries with a marshmallow dipping sauce. The idea came to me like divine intervention. I thought I could claim it as a Fortune Goodies original, but a quick search on Pinterest would reveal I’m not the only one who recognized how much sense this makes. Original or not, these cinnamon-sugar sweet potato fries are a Fryday recipe worth sharing.

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.

Fried Cheesecake Bites

Today’s Fryday post is a tribute to New York City. I’ll be visiting the old stomping grounds this weekend to spend some quality time with my very best friends. I’m so very excited about it all and fried “New York” cheesecake bites felt very much in order. Today’s post is a tribute to shameless gluttony too.

Beignet Balls

I’m not usually one to make things from a box, but made an exception for a box of Cafe du Monde beignet mix thoughtfully brought back for me from New Orleans. 

I don’t like saying this, but I kind of wish I hadn’t. You see, while tasty, the mix didn’t quite do it for me. Sure anything fried and coated in powdered sugar will ultimately taste good, but the cloud-like donut consistency I hoped for wasn’t there. 

Sometimes I don’t get it quite right, but thought I’d share anyway. Because why not? It’s Fryday.

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.
