As I have mentioned before – I have never been to Mardi Gras but it is definitely on my list of “to-dos”!
And just like last year when I made Mini King Cakes, I am determined to have a little Mardi Gras fun right here at home this Fat Tuesday.
This year it will be in the form of Beignets.
When in New Orleans, Cafe du Monde is a must at least once a day. I have been known to pop in twice. My own order of beignets and a cafe au lait (hot in the winter, iced in the summer) makes for one very happy girl.
Making them at home will never be the same but it is a great holdover until I make it back to my happy place!
- 1 can buttermilk biscuits
- Vegtable Oil
- Powdered Sugar
Cut each individual biscuit into thirds.
In a dutch over, heat 2 inches of oil over medium high heat until it gets to 350º. (Check with a candy thermometer – it must not be too hot).
In batches, fry biscuit pieces on each side until golden brown (30-60 seconds per side).
Drain on a paper towel lined plate and dust with lots of powdered sugar.
Let sit for 10 minutes.
