Spring is here in all its verdant glory, and our thoughts turn to fresh vegetables at the farmers market, fresh herbs from the garden, and casual outdoor dining. Nothing could be finer than to breakfast in the gentle Carolina sunshine in the morning, so this week we’ll be presenting three recipes for a Southern Springtime Breakfast.
A fresh, homemade Southern biscuit, made from scratch, is a culinary treasure and absolutely worth the time and effort it takes to do it right. However…one may be willing to make the effort, but may not have the time.
Having a roll of refrigerated biscuit dough on hand is a good idea; you can use them to satisfy a serious biscuit jones in a hurry, and you can do other fun things like make these wonderful fry breads.
An important cooking note: these things fry up very quickly – about 15 seconds per side (no kidding!) Also, don’t expect them to sizzle and pop and sound like they’re frying, because they won’t. It’s going to sound like the oil isn’t hot enough. Don’t be fooled! As soon as you put one in, count to ten and start checking!
Here’s how to make the Easy Southern Fry Bread Biscuits:
1 roll (16.3 oz) Pillsbury Grands Southern Style Biscuits
Oil for frying (preferably something neutral like canola or vegetable oil)
Separate the biscuits and gently stretch and flatten them out into thin rounds (try to get them as thin as possible without tearing them.)
Heat about 1/4 inch of oil in a skillet until hot (about 360 degrees). Lay a biscuit in the oil and count to ten. Check the underside; when the edges are golden brown, flip it over and count again. Remove and drain on paper towels. Sprinkle lightly with salt, if desired.
