Thanks for visiting!

Imagine you’re George Clooney. Take a moment to admire your grooming and wit. Okay, now imagine someone walks up to you and asks, “What’s your name?” You say, “I’m George Clooney.” Or maybe you say, “I’m the Clooninator!” You don’t say “I’m George of George Clooney Sells Movies Blog” and you certainly don’t say, “I’m Clooney Weight Loss Plan”. So while spam is technically meat, it ain’t anywhere near Primal. Please nickname yourself something your friends would call you.
That is one big tater.
How do you make this?
You skewer the potato on the stick first, then cut around the potato radially as if into slices, but moving the knife continually upward so a slice never gets fully cut off. Then you pull the potato coil gently apart until it looks nice. I’ve never deep fried a potato but I have roasted veggies like this because everyone asks how to do it!
I love any recipe that takes an unhealthy food and somehow makes it worse.
It may make your heart stop, but you have to admit it looks cool
@Mikeymoo – lol, it does take a certain finesse
@Brian – be sure to wash it down with a fried coke.
its just one big huge curly fry…. :shutters: how do you eat it? how can you eat it? i think i gained a pound just pondering it….
It does look cool and tasty.
Hey, those fried potato curlies are being sold by a Korean street vendor for only $1, and they’re not nearly as disgusting as these:
I actually tried one once and lived to regret it. Koreans, Chinese, and Japanese bakeries sell starchy white buns stuffed with hot dog slices drizzled in mayo, ketchup, or both, served cold. Mmmm!
Please rescue my comment from the spam trap.
Polypore mushroom influence, surely?
Mmmm. All that surface area for Vile Fatty Fryer Gunk to stick to.
Modern food is amazing, in a very bad way.
Sir Hola..Any chance that’d you care to comment on Taubes new book Good Calories, Bad….. ?
Also his article on sat fat in the New York times in 2002..type in Taubes and Fat Lie and NYT and up it should pop.
All good things,
Well, If It Doesn’t Just Look Like Tater Kabob!
TwistedChips have come up with a nice, full stainless steel tornado potato cutter at a very fair price.
The only 4-IN-1 spiral cutter in the world that can make: Tornados Potatoes, Curly fries, Ribbon fries and Angel Hair Fries. You can also slice vegetables like zucchini, carrots, radish, onions, and cucumber. w w w . t w i s t e d c h i p s . c o m
What if that potato was deep fried in free range pastured pig lard?
Is it the carbohydrate density that’s the problem? or is it the type of fat used for frying that’s the problem? (polyunsaturated) or is it the frying part of the deep fried that’s the problem? Lard is saturated, so therefore is stable in high heat. They used to use lard in the old days, but shifted from “unhealthy” lard, to “healthy” vegetable oils. LOL!!!!
Phew, I had a good chuckle there typing, “healthy vegetable oils”!
pls help me to find machine to make this stuff
I would like to know where to buy or have parts for it?
Have you heard of a machine that cuts the potatoes for the potato on a stick
