Servings: 1
Prep: 20 minutes
Total: 20 minutes

1 large testicle (bull, stallion, or lamb)
2 large eggs
kosher salt and black pepper
Tabasco sauce, to taste
2 cups breadcrumbs
1 fun-size bag chilli-flavored Doritos, crushed
1/2 liter oil, for deep frying
2-3 sticks Peperami
jalapeño peppers, to taste


1. Clean the testicle and remove its membrane. Boil for 2-3 minutes. When cool enough to handle, slice into 1/2 inch- or 1-cm-thick discs.

2. Beat the eggs, and season heavily with salt, pepper, and Tabasco. Combine breadcrumbs and crushed Doritos. Coat ball slices first in the egg mixture, then dredge in the dry ingredients.

3. Heat a pot of oil until boiling and drop in the coated bollock pieces a few at a time. Deep fry until golden brown.

4. Arrange the cooked slices on a plate and garnish with slices of Peparami and jalapeño peppers.
