You never know when a craving might hit you throughout the day. Sometimes it’s at lunchtime when you wish you could munch on a cookie after your salad, or maybe it’s while you’re watching a movie and you could really go for a burger and fries. No matter what the occasion, we always need to leave a little room every once in a while for that special treat that will hit the spot. Next time you’re about to head to McDonald’s for fries, consider getting a little adventurous and trying out something like fried Peaches and ice cream, or maybe even zucchini fries. These dishes are definitely out of the ordinary, but who knows, it may be your next guilty pleasure.

1. Fried Peaches

Feeling uninspired about dessert? Try frying up some peaches and topping with a little ice cream.

2. Asparagus Fries

I love asparagus, and it tastes even better when it’s fried (of course)! Make a great chipotle dip to accompany this exciting new snack.

3. Deep Fried Apples

If you can’t choose between pie and something deep fried – pick both! These apples will taste a little like apple pie and a bit like a danish. So good.

4. Deep Fried Olives

Are you a committed olive fan? Serve up these memorable deep fried olives as an appetizer at your next dinner party.

5. Deep Fried Cauliflower

Cauliflower is everywhere these days and we’ve already learned that there is nothing cauliflowers can’t do in the food world. So is frying them such a surprise?

Get some marinara sauce ready because you’re about to discover your new favorite snack!

I used to eat fried tomatoes with my grandmother as a kid, and let me tell you, they are delicious!

9. Deep Fried Avocado

I cannot get enough of avocado, so I can’t wait to try it all fried up. Delicious!

10.  Sweet Potato Balls

Sweet potatoes are the perfect starch that is salty and sweet at the same time. Enjoy them deep fried with a little sauce.
