One can’t talk about sweet treats in New Orleans without mentioning beignets. I had no idea how easy and yummy this quick substitute could be until about a year ago. (Probably a good thing for my jeans…).

It’s so easy anyone can make it! Seriously!

You Will Need:

  • 1 large can of the cheapest little buttermilk biscuits (The cheap ones fluff up the best.)
  • Powdered sugar
  • Oil for frying (Your choice. We usually use vegetable or canola.)
  • Large frying pan
  • Tongs
  • knife
  • Sugar sifter

To Make the Biscut Beignets

Preheat oil in frying pan. I pour just enough so that the biscuits will float, without touching the bottom of the pan.

While the oil is heating, cut each biscuit in half.

Gently place the biscuit halves in the hot oil. They will begin to brown within seconds

They’re looking good getting all golden brown!

Flip each half to fully cook.

Remove from oil. I usually put on a plate with a napkin to help absorb the grease.

 Once all of your biscuit halves are cooked, cover in powdered sugar.
