J’s Biscuit Beignets

Otherwise known as my favorite breakfast.


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


  • 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.


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 everywhere). J and I have found we can reuse the vegetable oil up to four times before we need a new bottle.
