Q: I just bought a deep fryer, and I love it! But clean-up is difficult, and I don’t have the counter space to keep it out for multiple days. I have decided the best way to maximize its use is to do a lot of frying on one day. What I’m looking for are ideas or recipes for things that I can fry large batches of and then freeze…

…ideally things that I can reheat without the fryer but won’t lose that nice crisp they get from it. If I can buy a bag of frozen, pre-fried foods at the store, why can’t I do it myself?
