snacks or other foods you eat, that others find " gross"
Really anything...for example pork skins..pigs feet..pickled eggs.
Just something you like that others have "ewwwed"" lol
We have a restaurant in our town (one of my favorite restaurants, actually) that serves fried chicken skin. I love the idea of chicken skin getting some respect. I remember getting in trouble for eating all the skin off of several leftover pieces of KFC original when I was about 4 years old, and again for eating the skin off of leftover homemade bbq glazed and grilled chicken shortly after the KFC incident. I have a history of chicken skin love. So, I was pretty excited when I heard about the appetizer. I assumed I would love them; I am grateful that I don't. They aren't bad. They just are not worth the caloric indulgence.
So now I'm thinking I need to try at home sauteed chicken skins. Because really, there's no reason that this would not be good.
I had never done it before yesterday and I need to tell someone because I hid it from my SO. Chicken skin sprinkled with salt, pepper an a little garlic powder sautéed in butter until crispy. He would have a fit if he knew.
Have you ever tried "Chicken Skin Candy"?

A couple years ago I read about a Top Chef winner that is Jewish (I don't think he keeps Kosher however) and has a restaurant where instead of serving a BLT he substitutes crisp, flat chicken skins for bacon. When you sauté your chicken skins do they come out flat? The way I have cooked them to keep them flat and spread out is to put them on parchment paper on the baking sheet and cook them in the oven. I wish I could buy chicken skins in bulk.
Does squishing up the inside of my bagel (or hot pretzel or any other baked good for that matter) in my hand until it's nice and dense count? (I normally do this in secret - LOL!)
The really scary thing is that my kids to it too (discovered it on their own), and I know that I should tell them not to, but I feel like such a hypocrite.

Canned sardines, anchovies, kippers, smoked oysters, and mussels
