Introduction: Fried Garlic / Buffalo Garlic

This delicious treat is a good way to use your leftover batter when making fried chicken or whatever. 

Step 1: Things You Will Need

Note: I usually make a few of these while cooking up other fried foods, so normally I would use a
          Bulb or two of garlic and whatever batter or breading That is left over. But for this, I will post a
          mini version of one of my batter recipes , just in case you want to make the garlic by itself.

5 bulbs of garlic
oil for frying

1/2 tsp chili pepper
1/2 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp adobo seasoning

3 Tbsp melted Butter ( i use coconut oil)

The Buffalo Sauce (optional):

1.Mix flour, corn starch, salt, pepper, and all other dry seasonings together in large bowl

1. Peal off the garlic skin and cut off the hard bottom pieces.
2. Heat oil in pan.

3. Place coated garlic cloves into hot oil and cook until golden brown. (about 5-6 Minutes, flip half way
     through)
4. Remove from oil and drain on paper plate or towel.

Step 4: Make Them Buffilo Style!

1. Combine hot sauce and butter in a small Glass or bowl.
2. Microwave sauce on high until the butter is melted, About 45 to 60 seconds.
3. Mix until well blended, then Pour sauce into a zip lock bag or container.

these do sound good, wonder if you could roast the garlic a bit first, not too much just enough to pre-soften it a bit, add a touch of sweetness and mellow it a bit

That sounds like a great idea. frying them helps mellow the garlic and makes them a softer, but they still hold there shape (kinda like a steamed carrot or something). Roasting the garlic first would help give them that super mushy texture that melts in your mouth. Roasting them to long though might make it hard to batter & fry them though. I guess we'll Just have to do some science experiments. Thanks for the Great idea and enjoy the garlic my friend!

Oh gawd I love garlic.
I'm going to have to make these next time I fire up the deep fryer. I used to have friends come over and help me peel cloves for pickled garlic.

I am a huge garlic fan too! I plan on trying to get out some more recipes where it is one of the main ingredients. I always find it fun to come up with some new ways to eat a food that I love. If you want another good garlic recipe I did, check out my Garlic Cheese & Bacon Stuffed Meatballs.  They are a big hit around my house, and can be eaten in so many different ways. Thanx for the view!!
