The Deep Fried Cheeseburger

By • Dec 20th, 2007 • Category: Burger Blog

Take a look at these photos of a big fat juicy DEEP FRIED and BATTERED cheeseburger.

There’s a trend in Scotland for deep frying foods that really don’t need the additional calories produced by dunking them into a vat of oil.

It all started with deep fried Mars bars in the 90′s and has moved on to other candy bars, cakes, pizzas and now deep fried cheeseburgers.

This is a possible contender for the world’s unhealthiest burger title…

    My heart says, “Please, no, not this,” my mind says, “Come on, that’s suicide,” my eyes say, “That looks gross, don’t go near it,”…

    My dad was making deep-fried cheeseburgers in his restaurant back in the 80′s. They are delicious! We used a modified onion ring batter, and they usually fry for about 8-10 minutes.

    We made ours out of one large patty, rolled very thin — then we put the slice of cheese in it and folded over the edges, dipped them in batter and then froze the whole breaded burger; freezing the whole breaded burger saves your oil from the breading coming off and burning all day.

    They are delicious!!

    What kind of batter is used such as egg ect. how long should it be deep fried, and also are there any preparations done to the hamburger before it gets fried such as a little grill time?

    Several years ago, when I discovered Bubba Burgers, I came up with the same idea. The only difference, is I made a dry flour based coating that came out more like a country fired steak. It was really good, but I could feel a heart attack coming any second. It’s funny how I would tell people about this, and they thought I was nuts. Now I see similar things on the web, and it doesn’t come across as crazy. I guess when it’s done by pros it’s more accepted.

    Cross this with the cheeseburger in a can and you get heart attack in a can.

    That said, if someone around here sold deep-fried cheeseburgers I would try one. And I’m tempted to find a place that makes them.

    I was at the county fair last week and i was looking around at all the vendors selling deep fried foods and the lines to get it were crazy.. I have an idea that is somewhat crazy, but I want to see what you all think prior to moving forward.. Cook hamburgers, 2 patties with various fixins in between them (cheese and peppers, bbq sauce, sauteed onions/mushrooms, and so on) and dip on corn dog batter and fry up nice.. I can’t see how this would not be delicious… absolutely horrible for you, but so friggin good i think people would still eat them… Any feedback?

    The Hungry Penguin chain from Muskegon, Mi had one in Lansing, Mi that was very popular.
    They were GREAT!!!
    Then people found out they were VEGETARIAN.
    Closed quick. (I still miss them.)

    Started in the 90s?????? I guess when I was eating deep fried food in the 70′s, when I was but a slip of a lad, I must have been hallucinating…..

    Back in the late 1950′s through the early 1970′s there was a Drive-in-Theater in Riverton, Wyoming that had a snack bar where the food was so delicious they put a drive in near the entrance so kids folks could eat during the daylight hours. The signature dish at the Dash-In was the Cartwheel so good and so well known that after 40 years folks still talk about them since the original recipe is available at least to local eateries now have them on their menu and one features it on their outdoor lighted sign.

    hamburger patties cooked and frozen hard
    Package of American Cheese slices

    • 2 eggs
    • 1 3/4 cup of flour
    • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
    • 2 teaspoons sugar
    • dash of salt
    • 1 cup milk

    1. Pre heat oil for cooking to 375°. mix the ingredients for the batter together and let sit while the oil heats.
    Take the frozen-pre-cooked hamburger patties and wet a finger and rub small amount of water on each patty to make cheese slice adhere to both sides of the hamburger. After the cheese is on patty, dip them in the batter. Deep fat fry them until a golden brown.

    Had a Deep Fried Cheese Burger from a Chippy at Aberlady in East Lothian early 90′s, Deep Fried Marsbar only took public prominence in the late 90′s.

    Dash-In Cartwheels


    • 2 eggs
    • 1 3/4 cups flour
    • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
    • 2 teaspoons sugar
    • Dash of salt
    • 1 cup milk
    • 6 to 8 3oz. thin hamburger patties cooked and frozen
    • 6 to 8 slices American cheese

    1. Mix the first six ingredients together in a large bowl and set aside.

    2. Take one of the frozen pre-cooked hamburger patties and wet your finger and apply the water to the patty and lay a piece of American cheese on top of the moistened patty. This will make the cheese slice stick to patty while putting it in the batter.

    3. Put patty into the batter. Make sure it is covered. Fry until golden brown in 350° F hot oil. Place patties on paper towels to soak up any extra oil.

    This recipe was popular in Riverton, Wyoming in the 1960’s and originated at the Dash-In Drive-In located where the Bull Restaurant is today. At one time it also had a miniature golf course and was a popular hangout spot for high school teens in Riverton. Kids would drag Main from the east end to the west end and the Dash In was the turnaround spot. At least once in the many trips up and down Main it was almost obligatory to stop and grab a cheese wheel and a soda. At one time a Drive-In Theater was located where the shopping center is today and the snack bar and projection booth became the Dash In building and later a part of the building the Bull now occupies.
