Have You Ever Considered Frying Gnocchi?

Not a very good idea.

Thanks to reader, Dick


  1. Well, I guess I’ll scratch that off the menu, Jim!

  2. What a dork. An amiable dork, but still a dork. He might try frying them in a FRYING PAN, if that’s not too farookin’ obvious. Dork.

  3. Yeah. Brilliant idea. His laugh makes it, though.

  4. Having once made Gefilte Fish Parmesan, I guess I don’t really have much of a leg to stand on in this discussion.

  7. I’m sorry, but that’s frickin’ hysterical. It is. And he makes the video. His laugh is contagious.

    That said, I believe gnocchi is made out of little balls of potato, yes? If you put a potato in the microwave and don’t put a hole in it, it’ll pop. I had a potato pop in my oven once. I didn’t poke it with a fork and the damn thing exploded all over inside my oven. (Potato burns by the way…) So if he’s going to fry gnocchi, he might want to try puncturing them first…even though they are premade, something about compressing that potato back together created a pressure. Maybe there was air trapped inside and was expanding with the heat.
