'Top Chefs' need to butter up Palua Deen

With a row of deep fat fryers at the ready, “Top Chef: All-Stars” contestants will have to put together some deconstructed down-home tastes to please Food Network star Paula Deen.

Yes, the creator of the Lady’s Brunch Burger (that would be a beef patty, a fried egg and two strips of bacon sandwiched between two glazed donuts) and fried wads of butter (not a joke) will be on-hand to to judge the next Quickfire challenge.

This should be interesting…and greasy.

“Top Chef: All-Stars” airs Wednesday night at 10p.m. ET on Bravo.
