    My Private Note

    Ingredients:

    Servings:

    Units: US | Metric

    • 1 (11 ounce) can refrigerated biscuits, I use flaky ones
    • 2 cups oil
    • 1/4 cup powdered sugar

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Heat oil in skillet over medium high heat.
    2. 2
      Remove biscuits from can and cut each in half and a 1 inch slit in the center to make a typical beignet shape.
    3. 3
      When oil is hot fry about 6 beignets at a time, turning often so they do not burn but turn a golden brown.
    4. 4
      Remove from oil and drain beignets on a paper towel.
    5. 5
      Place on serving plate and dust with powdered sugar.

      I laughed when I saw this recipe. My dad would make these for us when we were growing up, he called them donuts, but coming from outside New Orleans it is a bit of an insult to call them beignets. For those who have never had a beignet, no these are nothing like them, but they are a very tasty treat that are a great fun thing to make the kids.

      Made this recipe today to celebrate Mardi Gras and they are excellent! Purchased Pillsbury flaky biscuit dough and prepared them as directed. A friend who has had traditional Beignets from Cafe du Monde said they were just like the real deal! I also had some lemon curd on hand for an added flavor. Will definitely keep this recipe for either next year or whenever I need to make a quick breakfast option for a party.
