I've missed that...

Deep fried butter?

That's a new one. It probably tastes heavenly and packs zillions of calories.

I had chicken-fried bacon last time I was home. Now THAT was delicious.

The deep fried butter is good but it's better between two sliced donut halves.

Huckabee mentioned this on one of his radio spots yesterday. Said they take butter that is whipped, add in your choice of sweet flavor, battery it, and deep fry it.

Huckabee’s comment - they probably just open an incision in your chest and insert it directly in your aorta...

Do you have to eat it, or do they give you a spatula so you can bypass the intestinal system, and just paste it right on your stomach?

The Wisconsin State Fair this year had chocolate covered bacon...

In my refrigerator is my personal stick of butter, real butter, when I eat toast, I take a bite of the toast and then a small bite of butter right off the stick, I do it with corn on the cob too.

(But never in the presence of civilized folks.)

An earlier post stated, regarding Deep Fried Butter:

It is whipped, flavored (optional), frozen.

Then, covered with a dough and deep fried.

[Sounds like a deep-fried biscuit with a chunk of frozen butter inside.]

“Fried” seems to be a keyword. I guess it’s an obvious way to cook under the circumstances, but ... *shudder*.

As you know deep fried cheese curds are served in restaurants there.

Hadn’t heard of chicken-fried bacon, but it reminded me of my daddy. He loved chicken-fried salt pork slices once in a while.

I hope we can eat in Heaven because that will be one of the first things I try. That chocolate-covered bacon someone else mentioned might be the second thing.

It’s a Texas thing, you have to go to the State Fair to understand. Big traditions: Big Tex, the Midway, and the sound of deep fryers at work around every corner. I am going for the sweet jalapeno corn fried shrimp and am going to have two desserts — fried pecan pie and deep fried peaches and cream. Then I’ll diet for two weeks.

Ever tried Habanero poppers? They`re small by nature but a bona fide pepperhead`s delight, damn, they`re good.

we were in Alabama 2 weeks ago on that Hwy 127 yard sale, and a lady was selling deep fried hostess twinkies! They were dipped in a donut like batter and fried in hot fryer like french fries. She couldn’t cook them fast enough for the line of people.

I grow the peppers and dehydrate and grind them into flakes, they keep forever as long as they stay dry. I've got about a gallon on hand now.

I mailed some to "Beelzebubba" and others a couple of years ago.

In your reply you wrote "poppers". Is that a misspelling or is it something you make with the peppers. Not trying to correct your spelling, I'm bad at it myself.

If you'd like to try the flakes, I can send you some, the price is right, they are free, I even pay the mailing cost.
