Well, folks, our second round of company is here and we have hit the Louisiana night life for the first time in a long time. This blogger is moving a little more slowly than normal thanks to the Parks Cracklin Cookoff and my cousin’s (ok, my step cousin’s husband’s) band, Nick-L-Beer.
Frank, our friend from Wisconsin had never tried beignets, but I am not quite up to rolling my own dough today, so to the fridge I went. This is so simple and easy, but so delicious. They taste better than many real beignets I’ve had and I’m sure you’ll love them. It’s a great way to get the flavor and a fraction of the work.
I used to only use the smaller refrigerator tube biscuits, but I found out today that the big boys are the way to go.
