Preamble

Last night my toking buddy (note: I was sober) said "Let's make wagon wheels." So I invariably ask, "What the hell is a wagon wheel?" expecting some sort of pre-school activity involving construction paper and glitter.

"Cut up bananas and cover them in cinnamon sugar!" Immediately I had one hell of an idea.

Deep-fry them.

It was late and I didn't feel like dealing with it, so I woke up today and had a goal. Deep-fried "wagon wheels". This is how it turned out...

Ingredients

Process

Start by mixing up your cinnamon and sugar:

Fill your pan with the corn oil about 1/2 inch deep:

Slice your bananas into 1/4 inch pieces (if you want them thicker, go for it, just make sure there's enough oil in the pan to let them float):

Throw your banana breathren into the cinnamon sugar:

Coat that sucker, because it's cold somewhere, and he needs it thick:

Hey, look these are those wagon wheels my buddy was talking about (sneak one, nobody's looking):

Start heating up your oil now. If anyone knows the proper temperature for deep-frying, I'd like to know. I took the relatively dangerous root and cut out a piece of potato. When it got hot, I tested the potato. The moment it had that characteristic "sizzle", I knew the oil was hot. Throw those wheels in there:

Cook these guys for about 3-5 minutes to get the sugar on them to carmelize (is this the proper word?) and take them out.
