National Greasy Food Day

October 25, 2013 | By | Comments (0)

We have something to tell you. Those who lack self-control (tell me I’m in good company) should divert your eyes and grab an apple. Today is National Greasy Food Day! Double bacon cheeseburgers and deep-fried candy bars for all!

Just kidding. Don’t go crazy. Instead of racing to the nearest drive-thru, try making a lighter option in your own kitchen. You’ll get all the sinfully addictive flavor without being knocked off your feet by outlandish calorie consumption. Whether you choose to harness full flavor in a smaller size or alter your favorite recipes, you can achieve a deep-fried inspired dish without ending in a queasy mess of regret.

Mini Burgers
Caramelized Onion-and-Blue Cheese Mini Burgers
Let’s call them fun-sized. Indulge in a combination of blue cheese, arugula, caramelized onion, and ground sirloin for less than 200 calories a pop.

Mini Donuts
Mini Donuts
Three adorable donuts will set you back less than 300 calories. You get all my respect if you can stop at one.

Beef Empanadas
Mini Panamanian Beef Empanadas Recipe
Yes they’re fried, but smaller size yields a more satisfying crunch. This might mean you can walk away after a reasonable amount.

Garlic Fries
Garlic Fries
The secret to keeping these fries under control is baking them, then tossing with a small amount of butter and garlic once they’ve been removed from the oven.

Join us every Friday as we explore trending flavors and off-the-wall ingredients you’ve got to try—even if just once.
