Mega Cheese and Bacon Deep Fried Onion Rings - Deep-Fried Onion Rings Filled with Cheese & Bacon!!!
Author: 
Recipe type: Deep-fried
 
Whether you present these incredible deep-fried onion rings as a starter or as an accompaniment to your main course, these crispy golden packages will have your guests talking for decades. This is how to make them....
Ingredients
  • Streaky bacon
  • Large Onions
  • Processed cheese slices
  • All-purpose flour (seasoned with salt and white pepper to taste)
  • Eggs
  • Oil for deep-frying
Instructions
  1. To start, top, tail and peel the onions.
  2. Cut the angled ends from the onions, leaving you with the more cylindrical center section of the onions.
  3. Keep all of the off-cuts for salads or stir-fries.
  4. Working from the outside ring of each onion, separate the rings, grouping the first ring and third ring as a pair, and the second and fourth as a pair.
  5. Notice when you place the smaller ring of the pair inside the larger ring, that there is a sizeable gap. This is exactly what we want.
  6. Cut a slice of the processed cheese into strips and line the inside of the bigger onion ring with the cheese.
  7. Take a slice of streaky bacon and repeat this exercise.
  8. Press the smaller ring into the larger ring and the first ring is done. Continue until all of the rings have been processed.
  9. To coat the rings, first sprinkle a layer of seasoned all-purpose flour over a large platter. This is where the coated rings will set, and the flour prevents the rings from sticking to the platter and getting damaged.
  10. Pour a couple of cups into a large dish and beat a few eggs in a jug.
  11. Dredge the ring in the flour. This will dry any damp spots on the ring.
  12. Dip the ring in the egg to wet it all over.
  13. Dredge the ring in the flour to coat it all over.
  14. Return the ring to the egg to wet all of the flour.
  15. Then back into the flour for a final, good solid coating.
  16. Transfer this to the platter to set.
  17. Continue with the remaining rings. Allow the coated rings to set for 20 minutes.
  18. Half fill a large pan or wok with oil and heat this to 170c or 340f.
  19. Carefully lower the rings into the oil in batches and fry them for 5 to 7 minutes until crispy and golden, turning them over every 60 seconds.
  20. Use a slotted spoon to remove the rings from the oil and drain any excess oil on kitchen paper.
  21. Serve the rings while piping hot and enjoy.
  22. And there it is, a beautiful crispy golden onion ring filled with melted cheese and bacon.

Fish Nuggets - How to Make Golden, Crispy Fish Nuggets - Homemade Fish Nuggets
Author: 
Recipe type: Seafood / Fish
 
These fish nuggets are out of this world. Spiced up with cracked black pepper and cayenne, they can serve as a main course, as part of a seafood platter, or as snacks at a cocktail party... and if you omit the cayenne pepper, kids will love them too.
Ingredients
  • 800g Monkfish, or any firm white fish
  • 250g All-purpose flour
  • 30ml Cracked black pepper
  • 15ml Cayenne pepper
  • 15ml Fine salt
  • 4 Eggs
Instructions
  1. Starting with the coating, combine the salt, cracked black pepper and cayenne pepper with the all-purpose flour and stir this until totally combined.
  2. Place the eggs in a jug and whisk these thoroughly until all of the albumen has broken down.
  3. Pour the eggs into a large bowl.
  4. For the fish, I am using monkfish, but you can use any firm fish.
  5. Remove the fillets from the spine and cut the fish into bite-size pieces.
  6. To coat the nuggets, start by sprinkling a layer of the seasoned flour over a large platter. This is where the coated fish will set, and the thin layer of flour will prevent the coating from sticking to the platter and getting damaged. Put this aside.
  7. Drop 6 to 8 pieces of fish into the seasoned flour and toss them to coat. This dries the surface of the fish in preparation for the egg. Transfer these to another platter and continue until all of the fish has had its first coating.
  8. Working with one nugget at a time, dip the nugget in the egg to wet all of the flour, then transfer it to the flour to get a good solid coating all over. Transfer this to the setting platter and continue until all of the nuggets are coated.
  9. Allow the coating to set for 20 minutes before continuing.
  10. Half fill a large pan with oil and heat this to 160c or 320f. Carefully lower the nuggets into the oil and fry the fish for 3 minutes until crispy and golden. Use a slotted spoon to remove the nuggets from the oil and drain any excess oil on kitchen paper.
  11. For this quantity of fish, you will need to fry the nuggets in 2 or 3 batches.
  12. Serve the nuggets immediately with lemon or lime wedges and dipping sauces and accompaniments of your choice.

How to Make Long Eggs - Long Cylindrical Eggs Made Easy!!!
Author: 
Recipe type: Eggs / Breakfast / Salads
 
Long eggs allow you to slice uniform cooked egg slices to dress salads, garnish breakfast, and simply confuse your guests. After visiting a long egg factory, I decided to see whether it was possible, and practical to make these at home without all the fancy equipment.
Ingredients
  • 4 x Large eggs
Equipment Required
  • 1 x Elastic band (long, or more joined)
  • 1 x 100ml Measuring cylinder
  • 1 x 250ml Hi-ball tumbler
  • 1 x Digital pot or pot on induction range
Instructions
  1. To start, separate the egg yolks from the whites and whisk both thoroughly.
  2. Loop the elastic over one handle of your pot, stretch it across the pot and loop it over the other handle.
  3. Place the high-ball tumbler in the center of the pot.
  4. Invert the measuring cylinder and position this in the center of the tumbler.
  5. Lift the elastic band and position this across the center of the measuring cylinder. This will prevent the the tumbler and cylinder from floating when the pot is filled with water.
  6. Pour the egg white into the space between the cylinder and the tumbler.
  7. Fill the pot with hot water until the water level is about a half inch above the level of the egg white.
  8. When I say hot water, the water must be around 60c or 120f. If it is too hot, the tumbler could crack. This heat also prepares the tumbler for the heat to come.
  9. Set the temperature of your pot or induction cooker to 85c.
  10. Place a thermometer into the pot to monitor the temperature. When the temp hits 80c,start your timer. 30 minutes after this point, the egg white will be sufficiently set.
  11. Remove the elastic band. Carefully remove the measuring cylinder from the egg white leaving the set egg white with a gaping tunnel all the way through it.
  12. It helps the jiggle the cylinder back and forth to allow a little air down the side of the cylinder to break the vacuum below.
  13. Place a funnel into the center of the egg white and pour in the egg yolk until it is level with the top of the white.
  14. By this stage the temperature of the water will be at your target of 85c.
  15. Allow this to cook for a further 35 to 40 minutes.
  16. Towards the end of this time, you can test the egg yellow with a skewer. When it comes out of the yellow dry, the yolk has set properly.
  17. Remove the tumbler from the water.
  18. Using the handle of a dessert spoon press the handle carefully down the side of the egg. Work your way all the way around the edge of the egg.
  19. This will allow air into the glass and the egg will slide out much easier.
  20. All that remains is to slice your cylinder egg slices....

Egg rolls are an all-time favorite. These eggs rolls reign supreme in the realm of egg rolls, and whether you serve them as finger snacks or as an accompaniment to breakfast, you will never be disappointed.
Ingredients
  • 4 Large eggs
  • 1 Tomato
  • 50g Good quality aged salami
  • 50g Finely shredded Parmesan cheese
  • 100g finely shredded mature cheddar cheese
  • 45ml Snipped garlic chives
  • 15ml Butter for frying
  • Salt and cracked black pepper to taste
  • Cayenne pepper for garnishing
Instructions
  1. To start, slice the tomato into thin slices.
  2. Slice the cured, aged salami into 1mm slices.
  3. Finely shred the Parmesan cheese.
  4. Whisk the eggs thoroughly... there must be no albumen visible in the egg.
  5. Finely shred the mature cheddar cheese, and snip about 3 tablespoons of fresh garlic chives.
  6. Add a tablespoon of butter to a 32cm pan. When the butter is sizzling, spread it around to coat the base of the pan.
  7. Pour in the egg and swirl it around to spread it evenly across the pan.
  8. Sprinkle 2 thirds of the chopped chives over the egg, followed by half of the shredded Parmesan cheese.

  12. Slide the egg from the pan onto a large chopping board.
  13. Sprinkle half of the mature cheddar cheese over the egg.

  15. Trim off the ends of the roll. This step is the most important of all.... put the ends in your mouth and enjoy the first taste.
  16. Cut the remaining roll into slices of 15mm or 3 quarter inch thick.

  19. Place the pan in the center of your oven with just the grilling element on full blast for 5 minutes.

Super Extra Crispy Deep Fried Chicken Wings - These Chicken Wings are Unbelievably Crispy and Yummy!
Author: 
Recipe type: Chicken
 
Just a week or so ago we published the super-crispy pigs wings. The video was met with much interest, and quite a few of our viewers asked me to do the same super-crispy coating using chicken wings..... and here it is.
Ingredients
  • 8-12 Full chicken wings (16-24 winglets)
  • Oil for frying
  • 120ml Chicken seasoning of your choice
  • 500ml All purpose flour
  • 30ml Salt
  • 60ml Cornstarch
  • 140ml Chicken stock
  • 2 Eggs
Instructions
  1. To start, trim of the wing tips and cut through the center joint of each wing.
  2. Place the wings in a large pan in a single layer. Sprinkle half of the seasoning of your choice evenly over the wings making sure to coat both sides.
  3. Transfer the wings to a large vacuum bag in a single layer and vacuum seal the bag. It is always a good idea to double seal both ends of the bag.
  4. Place the bag in your dishwasher on the high setting, or 70c, and let this wash for 60 minutes. Alternatively place the bag in a digital pot with temperature control at 70c and let it cook for 60 minutes.
  5. While the wings cook, add the other half of the seasoning to the flour and cornstarch and mix this until combined.
  6. Pour chicken stock into the seasoned flour a little at a time, using a whisk to mix it into the flour. If the whisk gets clogged, simply clear it and continue until all of the stock is added.
  7. Put this aside to dry a little while the chicken completes its cycle in the dishwasher or pot.
  8. Once the cycle completes, get into the coating with your hands and break down any bits that are too big.
  9. Remove the wings from the bag. Notice that there is almost no weight loss.
  10. Whisk the eggs in a large bowl. Working with one wing at a time, dip the wing in the egg to wet it all over.
  11. Drop the chicken into the coating and dredge it to get a good solid coating all over.
  12. Transfer the coated wing to a platter to set while you continue with the rest of the wings.
  13. Allow the coating to set for 20 minutes before continuing.
  14. Half fill your wok or large pan with oil and heat this to 160c or 320f.
  15. Fry the wings for 4 to 6 minutes until super-crispy and golden.
  16. Remove them from the oil and drain any excess oil on kitchen paper.
  17. Serve the wings immediately and savor the incredibly crispy and tasty treats.

Author: 
Recipe type: Pork / Superbowl
Serves: 12
 
Today we're going to make a batch of Superbowl super-crispy pig's wings. These skewers are super-crispy, and I mean super crispy, and the secret to this is in the way the pork is coated before frying.

For the Coating
  • 125ml All purpose flour
  • 125ml Cornstarch
  • 2.5ml Baking powder
  • 2.5ml Salt
  • 75ml Chicken stock
  • 3 Eggs
For the Sauce
  • 45ml White wine vinegar

  • 2.5ml Cornstarch
  • 60ml Caster sugar
Instructions
  1. Starting with the secret coating...measure out the all-purpose flour, the cornstarch, baking powder, salt and chicken stock.
  2. Place all the dry ingredients in a mixing bowl and use a whisk to stir these until combined.
  3. Add the chicken stock, a little at a time, whisking it into the dry mixture to form a rough crumbly mixture. Put this aside.

  6. Heat the pan over medium high heat and bring it to a boil. As soon as the sauce starts to bubble up, turn the heat off and put the sauce aside.
  7. Unpack the deboned pork neck steaks and cut them into strips of 6mm or a quarter inch thick. Save any off-cuts or odd bits for stir-fries or other dishes.
  8. Thread the pork strips onto 15cm or 6 inch bamboo skewers.
  9. Whisk the eggs in a tall jug.
  10. By this time, the crumbing mixture will have dried a little. Use your hands to sift through the mixture and break down any lumps that are too large.
  11. Hold the jug containing the eggs at an angle and dip a skewer into the egg to wet it all over.
  12. Transfer the skewer to the coating mixture and dredge it to get a good solid coating all over.
  13. Transfer this to a platter to set and continue with the remaining skewers.
  14. Half fill a wok or large pan with oil and heat this to 180c or 350f. Carefully lower the skewers into the oil.
  15. Allow the skewers to fry for 3 to 4 minutes until super-crispy and golden.
  16. Remove these from the oil and drain any excess oil on kitchen paper. Continue frying the next batch of skewers.
  17. Transfer the pig's wings to serving platters and spoon the sauce over the skewers before serving.

Dominican Deep-fried chicken or Pica Pollo is quite different to the fried chicken we are accustomed to. The chicken is precooked in a flavor pot, then lightly coated, and deep-fried to crispy, golden yummy.
Ingredients
  • 12 Chicken drumsticks
For the Flavor Pot
  • 1.5lt Water
  • 1 Small red onion
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • 3 Sprigs parsley
  • 2 Teaspoons salt
  • 1 Clove garlic, crushed
For the Seasoned Coating
  • 1 Cup all-purpose flour
  • 2.5ml Dried oregano
  • 5ml White pepper
  • 5ml Salt
Other
  • Oil for frying
Instructions
  1. For the flavor pot, crush the garlic, measure the salt, cut 3 sprigs of parsley, squeeze the lime juice and cut the red onion in half.
  2. Add the water to the pot along with the chicken drumsticks and all of the aforementioned ingredients.
  3. Place the pot over medium-high heat and bring this to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer the chicken for 15 minutes.
  4. For the seasoned coating, measure out the white pepper, dried oregano and salt. Add this to the flour and mix this in thoroughly.
  5. Remove the drumsticks from the flavor pot and allow them to cool for a few minutes.
  6. Working with a couple of drumsticks at a time, drop them into the flour, pop the lid on the container and shake it up to coat the chicken.
  7. Remove the lid, shake any excess flour from the drumsticks and transfer these to a platter while you continue with the remaining pieces.
  8. Half-fill a large pot or wok with oil and heat this to 170c or 340f. Fry the drumsticks in batches until they are lightly golden and crispy. This will take about 4 to 6 minutes. Remove the chicken from the oil and drain any excess oil on kitchen paper. Continue until all of the drummies are complete.
  9. Serve the chicken immediately with a super-cold beer and the accompaniments of your choice.
