Easy Doughnuts and Holes!


I'm really trying to cut out sugar consumption around here, so this is something I don't normally make, I just happened to have the biscuits, so I tried it........

I recently discovered an easy way to make doughnuts (and holes)! I'm sure this trick has been around a long time--why did it take so long for me to catch on?

Take refrigerator tube biscuits, cut a hole in the middle of each biscuit (I have a small circle insert in my biscuit cutter that I used), then fry the doughnuts and holes in a bit of medium-hot oil, turning when brown. Drain on paper towels. You can sprinkle with powdered sugar, cinnamon and sugar, or glaze them.

I left ours plain (trying to reduce our sugar intake--maybe I should call it 'fry bread'?), packaged in Ziploc baggies in meal-sized portions and put in the freezer.

No more than once or twice a month do I serve doughnuts. I get them out of the freezer on the day I want to serve them. They are defrosted by lunch time and I warm in the microwave or for a minute or two in the oven if I am cooking the sausage or other items in the oven.

I serve them usually with scrambled eggs or breakfast sausage links and fruit and veggie.

Doughnut days are special!
