When you click onto Paula Deen's Food Network page, there is a video montage that starts playing when the page loads. The video leads off with a segment where Paula shows how to prepare deep-fried macaroni and cheese - squares of mac-and-cheese wrapped with bacon, then coated with crumbs and deep fried. It's a simple-to-make yet ridiculously over-the-top recipe.
The video is available on YouTube; I've embedded it here so you can watch it. Pay close attention as Paula prepares this snack - when Lynnafred and I watched it, we had to wonder whether she actually wanted to film it or whether someone put her up to it. There are a couple places where she can't even keep a straight face:
- Watch at 0:11 when she first says she's going wrap squares of mac and cheese in bacon and deep fry it. She has to cover her face with her hand to keep from laughing.
- At 0:47, she glances over at the cameraman and almost starts laughing again as she peels off a strip of bacon to wrap the square.
- And finally, at 3:01, watch as she takes a bite of her handiwork. Despite saying that "This is really, really good," she makes an unmistakable DO NOT WANT face when she takes that first mouthful (hit the pause button on the playback to see her candid reaction. It's priceless.)
Bon appetit, y'all.
