I’m all about ridiculously indulgent food, but this just looks disgusting.

    A 4 to 1 ratio of butter to cream cheese? They certainly don’t sound appetizing.

    Paula’s Fried Balls? I prefer Nigella’s Fresh Melons. Much healthier.

    Would you feel better if they put a bit of bacon in it? I know I would!!!

    I think that was a bit of a joke, because Deen fries everything. Joke or not though, it’s almost believable coming from her.

    A) don’t knock it till you try it! Admittedly, I’d probably adjust the ratio, or better yet just make some stuffed jalepenos or something.

    B) seems like as good a time as any – made brown sugar bacon today (bake at 350ish, when starts to spit, sprinkle brown sugar on, cook till bacon done/sugar bubbly/brown – around 20 min works for me). Mmmmm.

    Oh, and use thick-sliced bacon for the above.

    Actually, these appeared on her show as a joke. A viewer came up with a way to fry butter after a friend told her it was impossible. They submitted it as an idea for a show. Not meant to be taken seriously, thank god. Although some people have made them from the website recipe and are actually complaining that they taste (gasp!) like biting into a stick of butter.

    They’re vegetarian prairie oysters.

    Btw, read the comments section there.

    “Drain on paper towel before serving.”

    Um, why bother?

    Am I the only guy who cringed a bit when they read “fry balls” ?

    I’m surprised she didn’t find a way to work in some mayonnaise.

    Yuk. When I feel like careening towards fat-ass-dom and a heart attack I check out http://thisiswhyyourefat.com/ for inspiration.

    That is no joke the sandwich is great.
