If you're looking for something to do today then I hope hope you're not on a diet because it's National Fritters Day!  If you are on a diet, then you're just going to have to take a cheat day!  But let's get right into celebrating National Fritters Day!

WHY IS THIS A HOLIDAY?  

Well sadly, because it's not too healthy, fried food taste pretty dang good... and some people just can't get enough of things like fritters. Plus there are so many different types of fritters you can make that even the pickiest eaters will like some kind of fritters. So, what usually happens when you have millions of people that enjoy eating a certain kind of food? Out pops yet another culinary holiday for all of us to celebrate this well-loved food!  But do you know what a fritter is? To be considered a fritter, all you have to do is cover some kind of food in a batter and then fry it. Yep, that's it! You just whip up a batter with some flour, eggs, milk, butter, baking powder and maybe a little salt and you're good to go. Then you get to decide what you want to pop inside your lovely batter. Can you see why so many people want to celebrate a food like this?

I mean, I use to love eating chicken fritters with a little honey mustard on the side, but you can go all up and down the food pyramid with fritters. Fruit-infused fritters are pretty common; like an apple fritter. Corn fritters are really popular too! But there is no limit to what you can fry in a fritter batter... trust me; I've proved that!  What kind of fritters do you want to try?

HOW TO CELEBRATE 

So, how can you celebrate today?  Well, there are many ways you can celebrate but the easiest way, for food holidays anyway, is to head to a local restaurant. Most places will have some kind of fritter for you to munch on, so it shouldn't be that hard to find what you're looking for. But it could be pretty fun to explore new types of fritters, because you never know what they will have on their menu. Are you up for a game of chance?  But you know, you can also pick up random fritters at the grocery store that are ready to be fried up. All you need is a deep fryer or a deep pot and a thermometer and you're good to go. But if you'd rather whip up your own batter and have a little more freedom on what's inside your fritters, then pick up a few extra ingredients! As you saw above, fritter batter really doesn't have any out of the norm ingredients, so it will be an easy day in the kitchen for you.

But you know you have to explore a little with your fritters, right? Think of all the awesome food there is out there... now imagine it fried up inside a fritter... does it seem tempting? Then go for it! Put your favorite fruit, vegetable, meat, dairy product, candy or anything else you can think of into that fritter batter and get into some taste bud exploration. How does a yogurt fritter or a cabbage fritter sound to you? What about a Philly cheesesteak fritter or a malted milk ball fritter?   Have a great day and enjoy the fried goodness!
