    I love making batter fried green tomatoes & yellow squash. Nothing says summer in the South like those!

  • Fried Mushrooms and Zucchini Disks. I’m settled on a seasoned panko or breadcrumb breading and a simple marinara for dipping with the zucchini. Not set on the type of crust for the mushrooms (breadcrumb, beer batter, tempura, or, scaly flour), but the real question—one that I have never gotten close to an answer for—is what sauce to use as a dip for the fried mushrooms? Garlic mayo, rémolade, horseradish sauce, marinara, sweet chili—a lot of things are good, but there is nothing I’ve found so far that is definitely the best.

  • I love fried wonton skins filled with chocolate ganache.

  • I used to deep fry chicken tenders (breadcrumbs-Parmesan crust) but I now air fry them. Best Chicken Tenders around.

  • I love making fried okras.

  • I’m vegan, but now and again ill fry up some seitan or tofu or other meat analogue and i haven’t had a lot of luck with air frying, but i will try this now that you posted this cool video 🙂

    I received an order for Trisol which was supposed to make things crisp.
    -No instructions on the package.
    -It said to go to the website. ‘
    -Their recipe for Air Fried Chicken recommends EverCrisp and BatterBind S
    Where is the Trisol recipe?

    I ain’t spending 20 minutes searching their website when there’s no Search box.
    I’m done with this company. I’ll look elsewhere for what I want, not here.

    • Hi William, Trisol can be used interchangeably with Ever Crisp – so replace 20% of your flour and proceed with your recipe as usual.

  • Black garlic ketchup?! Is there a recipe for that or a source to buy?
