Start with dry ingredients: make sure your snacks are dry before coating them.
Use a coating mixture: create a mixture of flour, breadcrumbs, or cornmeal to use as a coating.
Add seasoning: spice up your coating mixture with herbs, spices, or grated cheese for extra flavor.
Dip in egg: beat an egg and dip your snacks in it before coating to help the coating stick.
Shake off excess: make sure to shake off any excess coating mixture before frying.
Fry in oil: use a shallow pan with enough oil to submerge your snacks for even frying.
Don't overcrowd the pan: fry your snacks in batches to avoid overcrowding the pan and uneven cooking.
Flip halfway through: flip your snacks halfway through cooking to ensure even browning on both sides.
Drain excess oil: place your fried snacks on paper towels to absorb any excess oil.
Serve hot: enjoy your crispy-coated snacks while they're still hot and crunchy!
