Asparagus, yams, cauliflower, zucchini, onion, mushrooms, lumpia, egg rolls, jalapeno poppers, chicken, finger steaks, Snickers, and Twinkies.
For the finger steaks and chicken we used this batter recipe given to us by the mastermind of this whole deal, Rob's Mom.
Pat's Milk Batter:
Sift one cup flour
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 beaten eggs
1/2 cup milk
Stir. If too thick, add milk.
Mom Meyer's Beer Batter for Onion Rings:
1 1/2 cup flour
1 1/2 cup beer
Let batter sit for at least 3 hours.
You could use the beer batter on all the vegetables but because we didn't have enough, I also used tempura.
I did not like the deep fried Twinkies. The filling was like molten lava and the sponge cake was dry. On the other hand, the deep fried Snickers have a strange appeal. Warm and melt'y' but still in a candy bar form. But you have to keep your eyes on them because if you leave them in too long they, umm... look like poo and deep fried looking poo isn't what I want to eat.
