Summer is several months away. That does not stop Ms. Goofy from longing for a certain dish she experienced at the California State Fair. We are talking about the deep fried 'White Castle Cheeseburgers'. I do admit they were very tasty They may not be considered health food, but, if we also throw in some asparagus and mushrooms would our health transgression be minor? We came up with a batter that really rocked. It was light, crisp and flavorful. Let's fire up the deep fryer.
- 3/4 flour ( I used mix of 1/3 cup whole wheat & 2/3 cup bread flour)
- 1/2 cup of cornstarch
- 1 tsp sugar
- 1 tsp baking powder
- 1/2 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1 tsp sugar
- 2 egg whites
- 1 tsp of your favorite rub
- 1 cold can of the 'King of Beer'
Mix the first 8 ingredients. Take a whisk and combine enough beer to make a thin pancake batter consistency. Heat oil to 350 degrees. Using tongs dip frozen White Castle burgers into batter. Gently lower into hot oil. Fry for approx 4 minutes on each side or till golden brown. Drain on paper towels.
I do have to admit the asparagus was definitely, over the top and delicious. The White Castle burgers put a smile on Ms. Goofy's face. We served this with a chipotle mayonaisse dipping sauce. There is just something wrong about this dish that makes it so right. Ms. Goofy has declared this her new favorite dish.
