- Ready In:
- Heat oil in a small, deep pan, ensuring that the oil is over 1 inch deep. Heat oil to 375 degrees F. If using a deep fryer, add oil as needed.
- While oil is heating, combine dry ingredients. Mix in chopped green onions. Gradually blend in buttermilk and egg until thoroughly blended.
- Using a small cookie scoop or tablespoon, drop batter into the oil, making sure not to crowd the pan. If using a deep fryer, shake the basket once all the batter has been dropped in to keep it from sticking.
- Cook until golden brown. If the oil doesn't completely cover the batter, make sure to turn the batter over to brown on all sides.
- Remove from oil and allow to drip back into the oil before placing on cooling rack or paper towel.

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY
I have two teenagers who keep things very busy around our house during the daytime. I also work long hours at Ford Motor Company, and I do want to spend time with my family every day. If I try to cook when my kids have their friends over, I'm certain to be interrupted. In other words, my available times for cooking are very limited. I don't want to give up on anything I love - my family, my job, my cooking - so I do most of my cooking after everyone has gone to bed. My wife is a teacher, so this can be very late at night during the summer. Sometimes, I don't get started with my prep work until 12:30 a.m. Am I crazy?? Maybe. I'm also constantly working on healthier ways to prepare food. I deconstruct every recipe I like, and try to make it with healthier ingredients. The big challenge is keeping the food tasty. I believe it's possible to enjoy what you eat and still be healthy. I lost 15 pounds in 6 months largely by preparing my own food (and exercising). If I didn't keep such loony hours, I'd call myself "The Healthy Gourmet".
