With the era of summer gatherings upon us, how many of you are going to be lugging the kids and that seven-layered salad to Aunt Betty’s BBQ? Anyone excited to see the 9X13 baking dish with cool-whip frosting and strawberries and blueberries as the flag?
Lets cut it out. Traditions are fun and all … but if I have to compliment one more person on her choice of berry dessert, I am probably going to just hand her a booger instead. I’M BORED.
I did an entire “How to make elephant ears” recipe on my site not too long ago but a reader and dear friend of mine showed me how she made hers with a short cut. Which is what I bring to you today. Lazy Ears.
Let’s get started!
Jumbo biscuits (refrigerated dough)
Any topping, I chose honey.
Start by pouring your Vegetable oil in a pan over high heat and let it get real hot.
While your oil is heating you can open the can of biscuits and use a rolling pin to roll them out.
I don’t think I paid close enough attention in the supermarket. The “butter flavor” is what you see as those tiny little yellow dots in the dough. It turned out fine but my curves might not have needed any additions…if you know what I’m saying.
From there you simply put your flattened dough into the hot oil and watch it fry. If it doesn’t bubble within 10 seconds of you setting it in pan, it’s not hot enough.
Depending on how fried you like it, leave it on each side for 45 seconds to 2 minutes each. Flip and drain on paper towel.
When cooled you can add your toppings. We did honey, but cinnamon sugar is great too! Or pudding … yum. Who am I kidding, all chocolate is heaven on fried dough.
And instead of bringing cupcakes (been there), cake pops (done that) or taco salad (1987), you can bring a basket of fried dough with a complimentary tote of toppings for everyone to customize and enjoy. Throw in some cold drinks and a packet of sparklers and you’ve got yourself an the perfect summer celebration.
