I like to deep fry mine, honey.
Recipe makes 4.
First I make the wonderfull batter which consists of.....
*3 grade A large eggs,
*1 cup of buttermilk,
*1 Tablespoon of powdered sugar,
*1/8 teaspoon of salt,
*And 1/3 cup of flour.
First sift all dry ingredients together in a bowl to make shure the sugar and salt are evenly distributed.
Then crack the eggs very carefully so as to not get any shell pieces in the batter and make it taste all yucky, euwwwwww!
Add the rest of the deliciously wet ingredients and mix it (naked) with a fork just until it's slightly lumpy
I've found that extending my pinky finger while holding the fork always helps.
For the spread......
*2 cups of peanut butter (I like mine Creamy!)
*2 large bananas (I like mine big & brown)
*1 tablespoon of powdered sugar
*1/8 teaspoon of cyanne maybe a little less
I put 2 cups of peanut butter in a DIFERENT bowl.
Then I peel 2 beautiful banannas ever so slowly, and put them into the bowl that I just put all that yummy peanut butter.
After I've finished doing all that crazy stuff I add a table spoon of powdered sugar, 1/8 teaspoon of cyanne, and just a little bitty, teeny tiny, wee bit of freshly grated nutmeg (because that's what all the fags do).
The last step to making a perrrrrfect filling for this is to take a CLEAN fork and just smash the holy shit out of it until it becomes a paste.
Now for my bread.
Potato bread works just fine and dandy,
(I like it because it's sweet like me), but you can use whatever kind of bread your little heart desires.
You can use sour dough, pumpernickle, honey wheat, 100% whole grain wheat, buttercrust, jewish rye, pita pockets,corn bread, onion bagels, english muffins, hot dog buns,sesame seed hamberger buns, kaiser rolls, french bread, biscuits,buttered crousants,home made dinner rolls, waffles, and don't be afraid to use white bread either you silly thing you! I've tried them all!
Now what I like to do is place 4 slices of potato bread on the kitchen counter in a little row, and spread the filling, ever so gently, on each slice. I usually give them cute, funny names like Randy, Mandy, Brandy, and Candy.
I always put a dill pickle slice on Mandy cause she's just a Bitch!
Then I put 4 more slices of potato bread on top of my 4 new friends and ignore them for a while.
Now I'm ignoring them for a reason. I've got to get my oil hot enough to fry me up some sammiches!
Now I don't know about you, but I take a deep, wide frying pan (about 5 inches deep), and fill it about 2/3 full of canola oil because I want Randy, Mandy, Brandy, and Candy to taste perfect to a T.
I turn on the stove eye on arround medium high place the frying pan on the eye I just turned on, and wait a while till I think it might be hot enough to start frying.
Usually singing 5-6 rounds of "Old McDonald" is enough time. Now while all this prancing and singing is going on, I'm also prepareing a spot for randy and the gang to hang out when I scoop them out of the hot, hot oil. usually a large floral design plate with 2 or 3 paper towels on top.
I dont dilly dally around with a thermometer to check the oil, I just use this simple little test.
I take a spoon, dip it in the batter, and drop tiny droplets into the oil and watch it do a little happy dance.
If the droplets are dancing to slow, I turn the heat up ever so slightly, but if the droplets start doing some crazy fast jig and turn brown I turn the heat down a little and sing 2 or 3 more rounds of "Old McDonald". When the droplets do a moderate Hustle, that's when it's time to start dipping my 4 little friends in the batter!!!
Don't soak it, just dip the sanwiches lightly on one side, and then lightly on the other side and carefully place them one at a time into the oil ( I usually start with Mandy and see how that pickled bitch turns out. Now hopefully she's gonna float arround and you need to check her little bottom to see that It's turned a beautiful golden color, then carefully turn her over to the other side,wait for that 'golden' moment, and then it's time to take a relaxing rest on the paper towel plate. Repeat with the rest of her pals.
After I've finished cutting them into triangular quarters and placed a frilled toothpick into every piece, I Like to make my presentation which is a circular design , and then throw It all into the garbage can because there is NO WAY I'm EATING THAT DEEP FRIED BULLSHIT!!!!
