Snow Day Breakfast

When I was little my mom used to make these ALL the time. We called them "biscuit doughnuts". I don't care what you call them they are yummy and take all of 10 minutes maybe.

Here's what you need

1 can of canned biscuits (not the flaky kind)
powdered sugar
either a deep fryer or a deep enough skillet to heat up about a couple inches of oil

Remove biscuits from can. Use a tiny cutter to cut a whole in the middle (an empty small medicine bottle is what I use)

Heat the oil

Drop in biscuits a few at a time. Let them cook a few of minutes on each side until they're golden brown.

Remove from heat and put them in a covered dish with the powdered sugar. Put on the lid and shake till they're covered.

Cook the rest of the doughnuts and shake in sugar. Now the best part...cook the doughnut holes and shake in sugar.

I realize these directions aren't real exact but I promise get them golden brown and you cannot mess them up!

I think these would be good coated with cinnamon sugar or even glaze too, but Mom always did powdered sugar so that's what I do.

Serve to your hungry kids and relish the praises of how you're the best mom ever...

Warning...I'm pretty sure these have no nutritional value. I mean come on people it's fried biscuit dough coated in sugar...

If it makes you feel better serve em some fruit too.

But this morning me and the kiddos ate them hot out of the pan with some milk....we got powdered sugar everywhere and we stayed in our jammies and it was FUN!

Added bonus...I can't find a doughnut ANYWHERE that doesn't contain egg. So if it weren't for these babies by kiddos would be unknown to the doughnut world. These are egg free and nut free. I used to make homemade biscuits with soy milk and make these too when Noah was allergic to milk.

Yum! Your mom got me started on making these for my kids too!

I know you can't make them but did you see Pioneer Woman's doughnut recipe this week!? Oh heavens! Looks too hard for me though!

We put cinnamon in the powdered sugar for ours and they are yummy! Those are Olivia's favorite!

I did see the doughnut looks way hard but it has egg anyway so no such luck for me. I did however make those "Marlboro Man's favorite sandwiches" tonight for supper which Trav thought were great.

This is funny. Jeff Brooks called me the other night and asked if we had any canned biscuits. He said he was going to make biscuit doughnuts. I gave him a can. Well, I could not get that out of my mind. He had flung a cravin' on me so then I made us some. Thanks for the laugh!
