The show was very entertaining... But, neither of the examples did much for me. I can think of a hundred things I'd rather deep fry than corn dogs, and I still prefer burgers thick and juicy.

Loved the part with the Napkin Bird.

Beer in the OJ.

Makes we want to go out and buy a fry thermometer and a gallon of peanut oil!

Burgers were classic. With a little sauteed onion they would be perfect.

BTW, don't bother with the frozen White Castles. Only get them at the drive through when you're REALLY hungry!

Food tv has run this episode a couple of times now. Call me a heathen, but i don't like corn dogs. Sorry. But I still enjoy the show.

Yeah, the beer in the OJ was good.
I looked at those burgers and said D'OH!! They're perfect for me. I will do that when I make burgers. I've only heard of White Castle & sliders. Seen 'em in the freezer section, but no thanks! It'll be mini-burgers in a cast iron skillet for me.


I'm not a slider afficiando, but I believe that a proper slider is cooked on top of chopped onions. I haven't been in a White Castle for years, but I suspect they cook the first side, and then flip them to a bed of sauted(?) onions, and then plop the onions and burger into the bun. I don't think they put any mayo on, either, as I believe one of the points of the slider is to get the juice of the burger and onion to soak into the bun.

Just saw this one for the first time last night! I thought it was very funny but really AB! There is no way I was going to leave the room if you are presenting ANYTHING!

Although I can no longer eat fried foods, I still torture myself with a corn dog anytime my son and I go to a carnival or fair. But I don't think I'll run out and buy a fryer (or a gallon of any oil).

The burgers, on the other hand, could be fun for the correct occasion.

The use of the bottle instead of a rolling pin was for the "guys" benefit, I think. Maybe they didn't have one (bachelor pad mentality) or didn't know where their wife hid them.

I must admit he looked fairly broad in the chest and I think I will join all the others in tackling him if the opportunity ever arises :wink:

Very funny show. Loved the napkin bird, the beer in the juice and the careful selection of flowers at the end. I just love this guy! :P

White castle uses rehydrated onions, IIRC. So "sauted" might be stretching it a bit.

(it's the closest fast food restaurant to my house...)

Great Episode. The wife and I caught Harold & Kumar go to White Castle, and laughed our butts off, hence I re TiVo'd this episode.

I am going to attempt to make the "Sliders" using ground turkey instead of chuck though.

This one's a classic for me too. I especially love the faux manly swagger he takes on just after the "ladies" leave the room. Cracks me up!

Another classic line is in the store looking at the electric griddle -- large grease trap -- "It's important for a guy." What a riot!

Yeah, I'd do the sliders (I agree; the wine bottle was to let guys know that they don't have to go all girly with a rolling pin, I think) and the corn dogs -- with the right group of friends. But I'm not convinced I'd buy the fryer, or the griddle. I'm pretty sure I could pull it off with materials I have on hand, even if they weren't as sexy.

I enjoyed this show, but I haven't made any of the recipes and probably won't. I'm the only one in my family who would eat a corn dog, and I've spent too much time perfecting my burger technique to go messing with it now. It was a really well-done, funny show, though, maybe not in my top 10, but certainly in my top 20.

OK. Saw the show. Decided to do the corn dogs. When I saw AB doing it and saw the final product, I thought that the cornmeal coating was a little sparse compared to what you buy at fairs and at Hot Dog On A Stick...

Tried the recipe just now, and it was a big disappointment! The batter was sooooo runny that it was barely coating (and yes, I used cornstarch!) so when you toss it in the fryer you get lots of hot dog showing and not much batter at all.

So I thickened it with more cornmeal and flour, but the taste left something (OK a whole lot) to be desired.

Has anyone else tried it, and to what degree of luck?

The batter doesn't stick super well to the hot dog (be careful when dipping, try twisting it) but man is that recipe tasty! I can barely stop eating these damn things when I make them (~twice a year)

This was one of the first episodes I saw, and and it sealed the deal for me- I became a fan.

I've done the burgers several times, and am very happy with them. This is a fantastic snack for "after the bars close, back at the house with friends and a 12 pack" revelry. People are really knocked out by these burgers at 2:30 am; simple, small, easy to negotiate.

No griddle in my kitchen so I usually use 2 cast irons or an electric skillet.

Haven't tried the corn dogs.

Didn't like it

This is another show I didn't particularly like.

While I know he was "goofing", the implicit sexism, even as a joke or parody, just made my skin crawl.

That and that sort of food just doesn't particularly appeal to me.
