Sizzle-crisps were a popular treat in the Fire Nation during the Hundred Year War.

Sizzle-crisps are a popular treat in the Fire Nation. They have a distinct crispy, bacon-like taste and are, in the style of typical Fire Nation foods, spicy-hot. Sizzle-crisps are traditionally made from meat,[1][2] and exist in many different versions. They are a common food sold by street vendors who often compete with one another to produce spicier variants than their rivals.[2]

Known variants

  • "Dragon's Breath" - nicknamed after General Iroh, this variant was developed after the Hundred Year War and is considered extremely spicy.[2]
  • "Peppery" - considered one of the more mild variants.[2]
