We haven't deep-fried anything for quite a long time, so today is the day. We're even throwing kind of a deep-frying party.

When you're living in Europe, you probably know lángos already, but how is it in America? Do you eat or even know this dish? Since most lángos is not vegan, we like to make homemade ones and invite friends over for this. Prepare enough dough and toppings and then just deep-fry them one by one. This way, everyone can try out new toppings and find their favorite one - from savory to sweet.

Here are our 4 favorite lángos toppings.
