Notes

*A note about frying-

If you have a fry baby or some kind of deep fryer that works great--if not you may add oil to a pot and with a thermometer, try to keep it at about 350-375 degrees. Be careful not to fill your pot more than 1/3 full with oil or when you add some thing it’s likely to boil over---be careful!

Serves 4-6
