9 Easy Fried Food Recipes Foodies Can Master The First Time Around

First and foremost...

Some of these recipes stem from apps and other websites. But when I made them, I did different things to my own liking to make them tailored to my pickiness and taste.

Also, these recipes use basically all of the same ingredients, which makes them convenient and even easier. I hope you like them and try to make them!

1. Potato Cheese Balls

This recipe is my absolute favorite. It's also the first fried food I've ever made and it turned out incredible! If you want to show off and don't mind taking the time to make these, this recipe is the one for you!

Ingredients:

Potatoes, butter, spices, oil, cheese of your choice, flour, eggs, breadcrumbs, and milk

How to:

1. Boil, peel, and mash the potatoes with butter, eggs, milk, salt, and pepper.

2. Form small disks with the mashed potatoes using flour to help with sticking.

3. Press cheese into the center of the mashed potato disks and form into balls.

4. Roll potato ball in flour, beaten egg mixture, and then breadcrumbs.

5. Fry in oil for 5-6 minutes.

6. Dry on paper towel and sprinkle with salt and parsley!

2. Onion Rings with Homemade Breadcrumbs

This one is harder than the cheese balls but just as good!

Ingredients:

Bread, crackers, onions, spices, flour, eggs, milk, and oil

How to:

1. Toast the bread to get it crunchy, then blend in a blender with the crackers. Wala! Your own homemade breadcrumbs!

2. Cut your onion and separate the rings.

3. Prepare your flour mixture by adding spices of your choice to the flour. Beat two eggs and some milk together.

4. Heat up oil to medium.

5. Coat the raw onion rings with flour, then add the flour mixture to the beaten eggs and milk. Coat your onion rings with that mixture and then with the breadcrumbs.

6. Fry your onion rings for 3-4 minutes.

7. Dry on paper towel and sprinkle with salt and parsley!

3. Fried Rice, Chicken, and Veggie Balls

This recipe is similar to the potato cheese balls but switches up the ingredients. I personally use white rice and chicken, but you can always swap those out for beef, fried rice, or any other meat. I use the spices to mix in with the flour and breadcrumbs that coat the balls. I add spices to both so that there's no missing out on any flavor!

Ingredients:

Cooked rice, chicken, veggie of your choice, flour, eggs, breadcrumbs, oil, and spices

How to:

1. Combine the cooked rice, chicken and veggies together. If they don't stick together easily, add in an egg.

2. Form the rice, chicken, and veggies into balls and freeze for 30 minutes. It's important to freeze so they don't fall apart when you're frying!

3. Coat with flour, beaten eggs, and breadcrumbs.

4. Fry in oil for 7-8 minutes.

5. Dry on paper towel and sprinkle with salt and parsley!

4. Mac and Cheese Sticks

This one is super easy. All I do here is either whip up a pot of mac and cheese from the box OR use leftover mac and cheese.

How to:

1. Spread the mac and cheese on a flat tray pan and freeze for 30 minutes.

2. Cut the mac and cheese into rectangles (mozzarella stick size).

3. Coat with flour, beaten eggs, then breadcrumbs.

4. Fry in oil for 5-6 minutes.

5. Dry on paper towel and sprinkle with salt and parsley!

5. Fried Oreo Ice Cream Bars

Yay! Finally something sweet! This recipe is one of my favorites and might sound a little weird, because why would someone fry ice cream? Because it's delicious, that's why!

Ingredients:

Good Humor Oreo ice cream bars, crushed vanilla wafers, eggs, and oil

How to:

1. Let the ice cream bar sit for a few minutes to melt a little.

2. Dip the ice cream bars in beaten eggs, then in the crushed vanilla wafers.

3. Fry the bars for 10-15 seconds only.

4. Pat the bars on a paper towel to remove the excess oil and freeze. After freezing for a few minutes, enjoy!

6. Fried Ravioli

Just like the mac and cheese sticks, you can use frozen ravioli with any foods of your choice inside or make them yourself! For me, I like to get frozen ones with different cheeses inside.

How to:

1. Dip the ravioli into a beaten egg mixture then into breadcrumbs.

2. Fry in oil and sprinkle with parsley! Enjoy!

You can dip the ravioli in a marinara/tomato sauce to make it even yummier!

7. Fried Cheese Dumplings (Gyoza)

This snack is a little time consuming but worth the cheesiness! Folding the gyoza wrappers may take some time to master as well. But it's a fun recipe to do with the family.

Ingredients:

Gyoza wrappers, cheese of your choice, egg wash, and soy sauce

How to:

1. Place a small amount of cheese into the center of the gyoza wrapper.2. Brush the edges with egg wash, fold over, and press to seal.

2. Fry the dumplings in oil until golden brown and crispy.

3. Sprinkle with parsley and enjoy! You can use soy sauce or sriracha for dipping!

8. Spinach Artichoke Onion Rings

These last two recipes are a lot more complicated than the previous ones. They're also the ones I have yet to attempt making. So I wish you luck on mastering these savory, delicious expert recipes! I would go all out and make the spinach artichoke dip from scratch, but it's totally okay if you use the pre-made stuff.

Ingredients:

1 clove garlic, fresh spinach, cream cheese, artichoke heart, shredded mozzarella cheese, white onion, flour, beaten egg mixture, panko breadcrumbs, oil, salt, and pepper

How to:

1. Saute garlic and spinach until spinach is wilted.

2. Beat the cream cheese until smooth and add the cooked spinach, artichoke hearts, mozzarella, salt, and pepper.

3. Peel, slice. and detach the onion into rings.

4. Fill each onion ring with the spinach artichoke dip mixture.

5. Place the filled onion rings in the freezer until solid (about one hour)

6. Place the flour, eggs, and breadcrumbs into three separate bowls. Dip a ring into the flour, into the egg, and then the breadcrumbs.

7. Dip them back into the egg mixture, and one last time into the breadcrumbs.

8. Fry the rings for 5-6 minutes, until deep golden brown. Remove excess oil with a paper towel and enjoy!

9. Fried Chicken Rice Burger

And finally, the most difficult of all (at least to me!).

Ingredients:

2 chicken thighs, soy sauce, garlic, flour, potato starch, white rice, spices, honey, mayonnaise, ketchup, lettuce, and oil

How to:

1. Put chicken thighs in a bag, season to your liking with spices, and marinate in the refrigerator for about 1 hour.

2. Put potato starch and flour in a bowl and mix well.3. Heat frying oil to 350°F, add chicken and fry.

4. Mix mayonnaise, honey, and ketchup to make a signature sauce.

5. Put rice in a container. Wrap in saran wrap and press with a small tool to shape it.

6. Put sesame oil in a frying pan and cook rice buns. When they turn golden, take them out.

7. Assemble burger with fried chicken, lettuce, signature sauce, and the rice buns. Enjoy!

I can't wait to try this one out!

I Sat Down With An Endocrinologist To Ask All My Questions About Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome

There are so many moving parts of hormonal health, so I went to an expert.

Anjanette Tan

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS) is an autoimmune disease that impacts approximately 1 in 10 women. Any woman who has PCOS can attest to the fact that no two cases are the same — there are so many aspects of hormonal health that can impact a woman's reproductive health! For many, PCOS is a trial and error condition, with many doctors' appointments depending on the stage of life the woman is in.

This week I sat down with Dr. Anjanette Tan to get the expert opinion on all my PCOS questions. Dr. Tan is a board-certified endocrinology who's worked in private practices since 2004. She currently works at the Diabetes and Thyroid Center of Fort Worth, one of the largest all-endocrine practices in the area, where she is the managing partner and head of clinical research.

- Since I can remember, I've always been a light sleeper, with the quietest sounds waking me up, and I regularly wake up with the sun.

- While talking to a gynecologist friend of mine, she mentioned the importance of using an eye mask for quality sleep, which regulates hormonal levels.

- I was serendipitously sent the Crane & Canopy Silk Sleep Mask almost right after that conversation and was honestly reluctant to try it after testing other sleep masks that felt uncomfortable and irritated my skin.

- This sleep mask was extremely comfortable, and for the first time in nearly a decade, I slept in far past when I usually do on the weekends and woke up feeling more refreshed than I can remember — I've worn it nearly every night since then.

The older I get, it seems that sleep becomes an increasingly important topic of conversation amongst my friends and me. Yes, of course we complain about how tired we always are, but the pattern seemed to be a lack of sleep on the weekdays followed by late nights and sleeping in on the weekends without any solution.

I'll never forget the day that someone told me these words: "Madison, I think you're a good friend to everyone but yourself." I stood there completely in awe of that statement. Before that day, I never really thought about being a friend to myself, and at the time, I didn't really know what it meant. Now, I realize that you can't fully be there for other people unless you're there for yourself, too. You can't show up for others until you're willing to show up for yourself.

Here are five things everyone should learn in order to be a better friend to themselves. These steps are hard, but they're so worth it.
