Food Republic's Best Breaded And Fried Recipes

Eggs and breadcrumbs have always been best friends
Oct 7, 2012 12:01 pm

Sometimes it's totally worth it to set up a breading station in the kitchen and go to town on stuff that you'd normally love to bread and fry were it not for the utter mess left in the kitchen. One of those times is the entirety of football season, so in honor of one of our favorite cuisines (tailgating is totally a cuisine) we've made sure that this roundup of breaded, fried goodness also involves a good dose of cheese.

Yes, Cheez-Its make up the breadcrumb crust for this baked macaroni and cheese recipe. The crunchy texture and amped up cheesiness works so well you'll wonder why you haven't been crumbling those little devils over your macaroni for decades. Plus if you have kids, they'll think you're a superhero.

Two cultures take the notion of a simple fried pork cutlet to a new level. Thanks to these wise countries, I hereby declare my total renouncement of the breaded fried chicken breast, and urge those who are still ordering or making any incarnation of it well into adulthood, to reconsider.

 I was prepping a really nice organic free-range chicken for roasting at home one evening, and when I reached into the cavity to remove what I assumed would be an wet paper sack of undesirable innards, I pulled out a perfectly smooth, shiny, very fresh liver. It was beautiful. I had to cook it.

Truffle macaroni and cheese is no newcomer to the elevated comfort food scene. If you want to learn how to make this modern classic right, look no further than chef to the Oscar stars, Wolfgang Puck. That makes this the real deal.

This is a delicious way to serve an underappreciated vegetable, which just happens to be part of the same family as garlic and onions. This dish is great paired with lamb, pork chops or steak. As with any gratin, we recommend whipping up a batch of homemade breadcrumbs. You'll notice the difference in the fresher taste and crisper texture.

Too many people don't know about scotch eggs. They're a genius combination of two major players in the brunch game — sausage and eggs — into one baseball-sized package of perfection. The concept of this beloved English pub snack is simple: hard-boil an egg for slightly less time than you normally would (about 8 minutes), cool, peel and sculpt a layer of ground pork sausage around it.

Ah, the joys of that which is breaded and deep-fried. Someday, your child will look up from his or her homemade chicken tender (yes, you made it) and ask you where breadcrumbs come from. This is a day you must prepare for.
