Diner-style onion rings recipe

This week we did a pretty simple and basic onion rings recipe! These turned out delicious and they're very simple if you don't mind the mess of deep frying things. We cut them pretty thin, because we like how they come out that way. Crispy and cooked all the way through quickly.

These go best with something like a spicy mayo or a tangy dipping sauce like you might make for katsu or tempura. You can use fancier onions, too, but we just made this with a pretty standard storage onion and it came out fantastic.

Chicken Liver Pate Recipe

This is sort of astripped down version of this recipe. Very simple, but delicious, smooth, and rich. It's a great party food, but please don't leave it out for hours. Not much to say this week, I'm working from home, in home isolation, and not feeling all that great about it all...

Twice-fried French Fries Recipe

Sort of a back-to-basics video this week. Really simple and delicious twice-fried french fries! We opted to go for some slightly chunky fries, cutting them a little thicker than usual. The trick is to cook them through at a lower temperature first, then let them sit and rest for a while before putting them back in at a much higher temperature to crisp them up on the outside. This makes for fries that are crispy on the outside and fluffy inside. You can even let them rest in the fridge overnight before putting them in for their second frying.

Also: Sorry that our new candy/deep fry thermometer is far too shiny to read.

The easiest cheater flan recipe

This is basically a caker recipe for making creme caramel. This flan is super easy, delicious, and a complete cheat! We've had to make a couple of adjustments to this recipe. Typically the syrup that you would use for this is Karo dark syrup, but we can't really get that in Canada, so we had a not-quite-as-dark syrup. You can also make your own caramel for this, but we resorted to the syrup after ours seized in the pot twice, crystallizing solid.

This is a recipe you see in Mexico and Mexican communities a lot, and the lime juice spritz at the end really adds a lot to the flavour. The texture of this flan is a little springier and denser than the more "refined" French-style creme caramel, but it is really delicious and much less finicky.
