This Burger Bun Is Made With Cheese Curds And Bacon, That’s All We Needed To Hear


Nick from DudeFoods is a mad scientist in the kitchen. The Wisconsin-based bacon weaver really knows how to work with cured pork and cheese. How else would you explain his latest creation? It’s a deep-fried, bacon-wrapped burger bun that’s stuffed with cheese curds.

Seriously. Look at it.

Check out his video showing how he achieved this masterpiece in complete, cheesy, detail.

Gonna need you to make me one next time I’m in Wisconsin, dude.

Witness This Food Boner Inducing DORITOS-Crusted QDOBA BURRITO


Nick of DudeFoods is an OG in the deep-fried, shock-food-but-still-edible dish game around the Internet.

“What can I deep fry next?” he likely asks himself every night before he falls asleep, on a bed of what I assume to be some pizza pattern sheets next to a wife that has to be aggressively supportive of the grease trap that’s inevitably every garment of clothing he traipses into the room after a day of, well, deep frying.

Over a Facebook chat I inquired, “What made you crust this bad boy in Doritos?”

It’s a bit of an asinine question I realize. It seems like nothing is off limits for his deep fried agenda, but the way he lands on his impending subjects is of interest to me. He’s deep fried an entire Reuben Sandwich after battering it in PBR, as well as making bacon peanut butter bites that, you guessed it, get deep fried to a deliciously oozing crisp.

“I did something similar with a Taco Bell Beefy 5 Layer Burrito a while back,” Nick explains. The result was less-than-spectacular, particularly because the Taco Bell wrap was severely lacking in beef. He mentioned he had a “six month old gift card sitting around that they sent me to try their new tacos,” so he did exactly what any self-respecting genius food blogger would do, forgo the tacos, buy a burrito instead, and deep fry it into some ridiculous chimichanga-Doritos-abomination.

There’s nothing more I want to do in this moment than put my tongue deep into the crevices of this crispy, gooey fast food Doritos lovechild:


Watch This Dude Make A Pringles-battered Corn Dog


I asked Nick of DudeFoods over a Facebook chat, “Where’d you get the idea for a Pringles-breaded Corn Dog?”

As soon as he saw news break about hot dog-flavored Pringles he knew that he had to bread hot dogs in the newly released snack. It’s just the way the dude’s head works, apparently. For those that follow his body of work, he’s known for having a key eye for mashups. Bacon-wrapped Pizza Balls. Waffle-wrapped Bacon Chicken Wings. Now these dogs.

Thankfully, he has a pretty masterful YouTube video up that details how to make these yourself…because let’s be real, is there any better dish to bring to the next function?

You Can Make A Doritos-Crusted Taco Bell Burrito In 3 EASY Steps

DF Doritos Burrito

Fans of Taco Bell’s infamous Doritos Locos Tacos will get a kick out of DudeFoods’ latest recipe. You can pretty much make it in only THREE simple steps.

Nick of DudeFoods simply took a Beefy 5-Layer Burrito from Taco Bell and threw it into some egg wash. Then, the eggy burrito is rolled around in some crushed up Nacho Cheese Doritos. Once it’s nice and coated, the burrito is dropped into the deep fryer for about a minute.

As far as DudeFoods recipes go, this was probably one of the easier ones. Yet, somehow, we’re still dying to try making this at home. Nick recommends you top your Deep Fried Doritos Breaded Taco Bell Burritos (what a mouthful) with your favorite Taco Bell hot sauce.


How To Top Your Toast With A Delightful ‘Egg Cloud’ [WATCH]


A few years back, Nick from DudeFoods created an awesome egg recipe that was super time consuming and did nothing for the taste. However, it looked awesome.

He called it the Eggs In Clouds.

First you separate the egg yolks from the whites. Whip the whites until they turn into a sort of sugarless meringue. It’ll be reminiscent of a fluffy cloud.

Spoon your egg whites onto a slice of toast. Nick took a shot glass and created an indentation in the center to add the raw egg yolk to. Once everything’s nice and pretty, throw the dish into the oven for about five minutes at 450 degrees.

While it’s definitely not simpler, it’s seriously one of the prettiest ways to prepare an egg.


Glorious Deep-Fried Pizza Balls Wrapped In Bacon


A few weeks back, we head a pizza challenge that featured some of the raddest chefs on Instagram. Among them was Nick from DudeFoods who created a Sweet and Sour Chicken Pizza.

Turns out, he had a back-up creation we never knew about: Deep Fried Bacon Wrapped Pizza Balls.

Similar to the Deep Fried Bacon Wrapped Peanut Butter Balls he made a while back, he threw some mozzarella cheese in an ice cube tray, covered it in pizza sauce and tossed it into the freezer. The frozen ball of cheese and sauce is then coated in flour, dipped in egg wash and rolled in breadcrumbs. They’re then carefully wrapped in bacon and deep-fried for a few minutes.

Yet another DudeFoods creation that’s given us glorious heartburn from across the Internet.


How To Make An Ice Cream Cone Made Entirely Of Fruity Pebbles Cereal


Imagine a Fruity Pebbles ice cream cone. No, not a cone topped with Fruity Pebbles-flavored ice cream. Rather, a cone made entirely from Fruity Pebbles cereal. That’s what Nick from Dude Foods created.

Following the recipe for his famous Rice Krispies Treat Ice Cream Cone, Nick replaced the rice cereal with a fruitier substitution.

After melting three tablespoons of butter in a saucepan, marshmallows and Fruity Pebbles were added. Everything’s mixed together and spread over wax paper. The mixture is flattened with a rolling pin and carefully wrapped around a cone form.

Once it’s hardened, feel free to serve with any ice cream you want. Nick choose plain vanilla topped with leftover Fruity Pebbles.
