Busy Day Beignets

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.

Busy Day Beignets

Prep time: 10 seconds                    Cook Time: About 4 minutes                    Serves: 4
  • 1 tube refrigerated biscuits
  • Peanut oil for frying
  • About 2 cups powdered sugar for dusting
  1. Heat the oil to 350° and separate the biscuits, slightly flattening in your palms.  Drop flattened biscuits into oil and fry approximately 2 minutes per side, until golden.
  2. Remove to a paper towel to drain and dust with powdered sugar on both sides.  Enjoy.
