First there were Oreos. Then the state fair gave us deep-fried Oreos. And now, the Gods of the fatty food world have bestowed upon us the slightly appalling innovation of bacon-fried Oreos. And by “Gods of the fatty food world,” we mean Oh Bite It!, which posted the extremely simple recipe recently.The food blog, known for bringing the greasy, cheesy, and bacon-wrapped foods of our dreams to life (remember the grilled cheese cronut?), calls their bacon-fried Oreos “beautifully balanced.”
The dessert (Side dish? Hearty snack?) is incredibly easy. Simply wrap each Oreo in a slice of bacon, stab it with a toothpick, and deep-fry in canola oil until evenly golden on all sides. The blogger suggests eating them warm, and urges you to use discretion when deciding whether or not to share your batch.
If you’re on an Oreo kick after eating these bad boys all by yourself (this is a judgment-free zone), try out The Daily Meal’s recipe for homemade peanut butter Oreos.
