* ''{{Duckman}}'' once visited a factory that made deep fried waffles and roast beef on a stick as part of a case. The place is a complete death trap because of all the grease runoff. The food itself tastes good, but...
--> '''Duckman''': Not bad. Tastes like there's something extra mixed in with the beef.
--> '''Bob''': Of course there is, [[IAteWhat you think a rat problem like this side of town had just suddenly goes away?]]

* A classic that combines this with SatiatingSandwich and BaconAddiction is the Monte Cristo. There are a few different preparations, but in general, it involves a sandwich piled with turkey, bacon, and Swiss cheese, dipped in batter, then deep-fried. To serve, top it with a generous sprinkling of powdered sugar and some jam or preserves. There are variations on the theme (including only batter-dipping/frying the bread, using ham instead of bacon, various types of cheese, not to mention the specific topping), but all of them combine some variety of the three previously mentioned tropes with this one as well as being tremendously unhealthy. Naturally, [[Music/ElvisPresley The King]] loved these.

** In one episode, the Smiths own a deep fryer and have a conversation at the beginning of the episode about how good the food they cook with it is. Then Francine drops her ink pen in the fryer, takes a bite out of it and remarks that "it even makes this pen taste good".

** In one episode, the Smiths own a deep fryer and have a conversation at the beginning of the episode about how good the food they cook with it is. Then Francine drops her ink pen in the fryer, takes a bite out of it and remarks that "it even makes this pen taste good". The plot of the episode revolves around the county outlawing transfats, making all the deep-fried food taste like crap and Stan enlisting Steve in smuggling transfats across the state line.



** Another episode has the family visit a boardwalk carnival, and one of the food stands offers fried dough - America's Worst Legal Food! Never leaves your body! Turns out there'd recently been a "truth in advertising" law passed so the vendors had to be honest about their food.



* In a similar episode, ''FairlyOddparents'' had Timmy run away to a carnival [[spoiler: actually a fake carnival the fairies set up for any godchildren who want to run away from home until they come to their senses]] and Cosmo becomes enamored with deep-fried possum "with extra rabies". He says he never wants to go back to safely prepared food again.

They then dump the hundreds of gallons of grease in the forest, provoking the wrath of the trees inside of it.

Indeed, properly deep-fried food is actually ''steamed'' on the inside, as the high temperature causes the water present in most food to vaporize; the pressure generated from the steam combined with the fact that fat and water repel each other ensures that the fat only penetrates the outermost layer if you've done things right.[[note]]This is why, when one makes french fries/chips well, the outer layer is crispy while the inner parts seem more like a baked or boiled potato.[[/note]] Note, however, that batter and breading almost always ''will'' absorb the fat; if you do things properly, though, whatever it is you've battered or breaded still won't absorb the fat, which is why properly-made fried chicken isn't greasy on the inside.
