Nikki - macaroni and cheese is known as a classic American comfort food....can be very good and creamy and then there's this horrible boxed stuff - ugh - with no real cheese on that one, just a powdered facsimile that emulsifies with water added......ewwww....but the REAL mac and cheese - yummy - - -

DEEP FRIED - - how sick is that? Can you imagine the fat grams and the calories.....people eat this without thinking about it at all and then......GASTRIC BYPASS :o

I'm STILL not glad I'm a Celiac though. :angry:

Hi Susan: Haven't seen you on the boards in a while. I agree with you, deep fried mac and cheese :unsure: Who would of thunk it! I don't think I would of eaten it before, what's next deep fried ??? Help me out here! :lol: :lol: :lol:
Still not glad I am a celiac either!!!! :( :( What I miss is being able to grab something to eat on the go, or maybe it's the donuts that don't sink, or the bread that tastes light and fluffy, might be the milky way candy bars I never craved before but do now, guess it could be the cookie dough ice cream, don't know different moods different foods :ph34r:

Ya I've seen those commercials for their new appetizers. That kind of stuff is exactly what is wrong with how people eat in this country! Macaroni and cheese isn't that great for you in the first place, then they go throw it in deep fryer.... :blink: why? Why don't we just go back to the kitchen and grab a cup of oil out of the deep fryer and drink it! Blah! I'm with penguin even if I could eat it, I wouldn't yuck....

Yea, imagine the people eating the fried green beans thinking they're killing two birds with one stone -- a veggie and a grain!! :lol:

They deepfry so much now ... I think my kids told me they were deep-frying Twinkies at the fair!

I'd just like a McGriddle, I miss our traditional Saturday morning breakfast, and in the casein dept. I think I'd do about anything (except get sick!) for a triple grande organic latte from Starbucks.

On the bright side, we're making new traditions -- hubby cooked brunch today! And I'm eating healthier and not pushing myself to the limit all the time. Sometimes it takes losing your health to realize that you really don't need to do it all.

Well, Elvis's favorite snack, according to longtime lore, was deep-fried peanut-butter sandwiches. :huh: Now, sickening as that initially sounds, I think I would have to try one of those given the chance!

11 year-old Son had negative blood panel, but went on gluten-free diet of his own volition to see if his concentration would improve, his temper abate, and his energy level would increase. Miraculous response!

Heh, if the pasta didn't kill me, the cheese would. :P

haven't we all learned if you can eat it, someone somewhere can deep fry it. like milky ways, or snickers, or onions, or pig skin, etc.

Yuck!! Deep fried mac & cheese and green beans? :(

Although, we used to go to brunch at this place on the other side of town that had a dish called "Pasta Salvi" which was basically fettucini alfredo that was deep fried into these squares and then topped with some marinara sauce....it was heavenly. I ate it before I knew what it was (on a brunch buffet), but once I went there, I couldn't not eat it..LOL (at least until I went gluten-free ;) )

I tried to post to this thread yesterday, but my computer went bonkers... just had to share this tidbit:


Looking to emulate the success of Chicken McNuggets and fried mozzarella sticks, the group is hoping to inject some red meat into the American snack food diet with cheeseburger fries. The fries, which look like a squat version of standard French fries, are made of a meat-and-cheese compound that tastes ? as the name suggests ? like a cheeseburger.

Breaded, then deep-fried and served with ketchup or barbecue sauce, cheeseburger fries have found their way onto menus in several states including Nebraska, Minnesota and Texas since June. There is also a version being made available to public school cafeterias.

"The challenge is getting people to think of other ways to eat beef," said Betty Hogan, director of new product development for the [National Cattlemen's Beef Association].


Regular cheeseburgers aren't fatty enough!!???

Also there's somebody at the Texas State Fair that makes "Fried Coke"...

:) Omg, I had to get in on this one-I have a friend who swears fried mac and cheese is the greatest food on the planet. She makes the creamy homemade good kind, though. Any leftovers the next day she fries in a pan with butter. Can you say arteriosclerosis?!! Deep fried must mean they make it thick with cheese and make it into a ball? I would think it would look pretty gross... :blink: Plus, wouldn't the grease in the cheese melt and then with the grease on the outside just make it one huge greaseball-y glob? :o
I have seen deep fried tweenkies too, but the strangest thing I ever heard of was batter-dipped deep fried dill pickles. I am ashamed to admit I think I would like the pickles, lol. I think they would maybe taste like fried green tomatoes.

btw-Susan --Yay! Great to see you!!!

Robbin--I've not seen the stuff personally, I'm told that it is bite-sized "nuggets" of deep fried mac and cheese. All I can think is they must scoop it into the hot fat and fry it up like that :blink:

Leah--Deep fried Coke--really? :lol:

Susie -- how are you?????? Lynnie

Before being diagnosed, we had all that deep-fried garbage at our State Fair. Deep fried snickers bars, twinkies, etc. Never tried them, because it just sounded WRONG!!!!! Also thought that it had to be a Kentucky redneck thing . . . . !!!!! :lol: Didn't know that it would be anywhere else . . . We have a restaurant that sells deep-fried pickle chips . . . called "frickled pickles"

Need to go . . . . moment of silence is getting ready to begin

I had these pre-gluten-free. They're not great, but they're not as bad as they sound. I never was a breaded and fried lover, if I had been, I'd have loved them.
