This may just be the best vegan recipe that I’ve posted to date.  Honestly, I’ve never seen this item on any happy hour menu.  I’ve never seen it on any menu, period.  I’ve never even had it before.  I guess I’m just a vegan dude with a dream…and that dream tastes freakin’ good.  This was an experimental recipe that has become in instant classic to me.  Try this one.  No seriously, stop talking about it and just do it already!

Okay so I know half of you are going really?!  SALSA??!!  Come on Vegan Happy Hour what is wrong with you?  BRING US THE FRIED GOODNESS!!!!!!  But hear me out…I needed salsa for the fried guacamole recipe that I will be posting shortly.  I could have just picked something up off of the shelf at the store but instead I decided to make my favorite salsa recipe and share it on the interweb.  Plus you almost always get this for free during happy hour at Mexican restaurants.

Fried sticks of vegan cheese here!!! Get them while they’re hot and melty and gooey!!!  Finally these vegan mozzarella sticks came out the way I wished that they would have in the past.  My previous attempts at making them were utter failures.  I’m pretty sure it was mainly because I used a bad breading process.  As I was making these though, I could tell they were gonna be glorious.  What happy hour menu would be complete without breaded sticks of melty cheese?

Get that fork away from your computer monitor!!!  I will not be responsible for scratches you inflict on your own screen…and I don’t think you’re gonna be able to just buff those out.

You know when you eat something for the first time and you say….”Why have I been deprived of this my entire life?”  The wife-unit had one of those moments when I put these vegan Irish nachos in front of her.  Sure, she was hesitant at first because your typical vegan nachos use tortilla chips (buh-DOY!), but these ain’t yo’ momma’s nachos…unless yo momma is Irish…then I suppose they could be.  Finding Irish nachos at happy hour is pretty rare.  Finding a bar that serves vegan Irish nachos would be like winning the vegan happy hour lottery!

I remember when I first saw fried pickles on the happy hour menu of a Southern food/BBQ themed restaurant.  I immediately thought that it was complete nonsense to fry a pickle.  Pickles after all were refreshing and crunchy, so why would you want to eat them warm and most likely soft from getting fried.  It was kind of like one of those Sunday morning colon cleanse info-mercials was playing in my head only it was about the fried pickles.  Why is this a good idea?  Who would like this?  Are there side effects I should be concerned about??!!  Of course I ordered them to see what they were actually like and I’ve been hooked on them ever since.
