J’s Biscuit Beignets

Otherwise known as my favorite breakfast.

Ingredients:
One 12-oz. can refrigerated buttermilk biscuits
Vegetable oil
powdered sugar

Directions:
Separate biscuits into individual rounds, and cut into quarters. Pour whole container of oil into the deepest saucepan you have (or as much as will fit with about 2 inches left from the top). Drop in biscuits and fry until golden brown and float to the top (We can fit in four at a time in our saucepan). Drain on paper towels, and dust generously with powdered sugar. Serve immediately.

UPDATE: J adapted this from a Food Network recipe he found (not Southern Living as I previously thought).

My Opinion:
As I previously mentioned, this is one of my most favorite breakfasts. It is super easy to make and clean up (so long as you don’t get powdered sugar every where). J and I have found we can reuse the vegetable oil up to four times before we need a new bottle.
