I Thought I Hated Canned Biscuits

Total Time

I had to have an iron skillet and dutch oven to cook everything when we went camping. We always had a fish fry and since my husband didn't like hushpuppies (strange man) he came up with the bright idea of deep frying some canned biscuits and as it turned out, one of his better ideas. They tasted great, especially with butter and honey. Next morning I placed some butter in the iron skillet and ploped in some "canned" biscuits put on the lid and browned on the bottom then turned over and browned the other side, they were wonderful! Cook time is an estimate.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (10 count) package refrigerated biscuits, of your choice (as many as needed)
  • butter, to cover bottom of skillet or
  • oil (for deep frying)
  • 1 tablespoon honey (or more if desired)


  1. Drop biscuits into hot oil and turn frequently until cooked through and puffy and brown or place enough butter in skillet to cover bottom and add biscuits, cover and brown on one side, remove cover and turn. Brown slowly so as not to burn. Add more butter and some honey if desired. Enjoy.

I tried frying these in a little butter and they turned out well. A quick breakfast, snack, or something to take camping.

Ha, this is a fun memory for me as well. You are right, this is a fantastic treat when out in the wilderness. They are also good sprinkled with powdered sugar.
