Why Drink a Beer When You Can…Eat It?
The infamous website This Is Why You’re Fat, “where dreams become heart attacks,” showcases the country’s most jaw-dropping, artery-clogging food items out there — guaranteed to sky-rocket your cholesterol and send you straight to the plus-size section. Highlights include Bacon Lasagna, Deep Fried Cheesecake Bites, Fried Chicken-Skin and Cheese Sandwich, and Southern Star Paula Deen’s recipe for Deep-Fried Butter Balls. Just looking through the pictures will make you feel guilty for not hitting the treadmill this morning.
But enough of frying any type of junk food. The Dallas Morning News and New York Daily News posted a story about Mark Zabel (originator of the Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Waffle Ball and Jalapeno Corndog Shrimp) now being the proud inventor of the first recipe for Fried Beer.
Currently, Zabel’s patent-pending process (which took three years of fieldwork) uses Guinness, fried inside salty pretzel-like dough, that oozes out when bitten into. Although certainly creative, they are not for everyone: the Texas Alcoholic Commission ruled consumers must be 21 to purchase these fried booze bites.
I guess it really is true what they say…only in Texas!
