Recipes for burgers, KFC chickens and other fast food that you can cook at home
Three eternal questions torment humanity. Are we alone in the universe? What is a sense of life? And why is McDonald's so delicious? The first two questions are not within our competence, but the third answer seems to be known. Fast food restaurants do not use any supernatural ingredients, it’s all about the recipe. So real fast food (in the good sense of the word) you can cook at home if you adopt this post.
1. Chicken as in KFC
Servants of the cult of Colonel Sanders really cook chicken with the addition of 11 herbs and spices. But for a family dinner, you can do without celery salt and dried thyme leaves, right? You will need three quarters of a cup of flour, a tablespoon of salt, the same amount of pepper, two teaspoons of seasoning for poultry and a half teaspoons of paprika. This is based on four chicken legs, divided into legs and thighs.
All dry ingredients alternately pour into a deep bowl, stirring constantly. Chunks soaked in water from the soul izvalayte in the resulting mixture. Now put them on a greased pan (it would be nice to find a peanut, then the chicken will not stick) - and in the oven, heated to 190 degrees. The chicken will reach the condition in 45-50 minutes. Somewhere in the middle of the process, pour it with oil from a griddle to form a crust.
2. Danish hot dog
The recipe for a classic hot dog is as elementary as the multiplication table. Therefore, we choose the Danish version, a little more sophisticated. The main (and only) feature of this hot dog is a crispy onion. Shred it and fry until golden brown in vegetable oil. Add salt and pepper, stir and immediately sprinkle with flour. And once again carefully interfere, so that the flour is not burnt.
Ruddy onion spread on a napkin, which will absorb excess oil, and this sophisticated part ends. Further, all the classics. Fry the sausages, put them into incised rolls and pour with ketchup with mustard. Now onions and sliced cucumbers. All you are in Copenhagen.
3. French fries
At home, you can eat delicious french fries only if you cook it yourself. Because while the delivery will go, the potatoes will cool and lose all their charm. Choose a few large tubers and cut into even bars with a cross section of about a centimeter per centimeter. Then dip them for ten minutes in cold water to remove excess starch. Then wipe with paper towels.
It is good if you have a fryer, but you can use a regular pan. Vegetable refined oil pour four times more than the volume of potatoes. Oil should be heated to 180 degrees. To check if the desired temperature is reached, lower one slice. If you hiss and floated, you can lay the rest of the potatoes. When the slices have a golden hue, stir and wait another minute. Salt recommend already on a plate, and not during frying. And do not try to reuse the oil.
And finally, about the king of fast food. It would seem that it could be simpler than a burger: a bun, a burger, a sauce and something else to your taste. However, developing your own recipe is, to put it mildly, not easy.What cutlet to use? Classic chilled beef or add pork, and maybe chicken breast? To pick up the sauce is generally an art. And we are still silent about the level of roasting and the compatibility of additional ingredients.
