Christmas Breakfast

My mother tells this story about how her father used to demand the kids eat breakfast before opening any presents. And it couldn’t be cereal, it was bacon and eggs- a REAL breakfast before ever a present was touched.This story she tells came up every year. Why? Because she used it to segway into threatening me with the same thing. (She never did follow through- lucky me!)

Perhaps thats where the inspiration came for this little trick. Its a series of tricks really, sure to brighten any child’s morning. I introduce to you, star doughnuts. It all starts with a can of biscuits. The type of plain old buttermilk biscuits that come in a tube and pop when you open them. They’re basically a simple yeast dough- and if you fry them in 350 degree oil they become faux-doughnuts. Now, thats trick one. The next tip is to cut out the centers with a cookie cutter- and fry the centers separately. Tada! These little treats are sure to brighten any morning. I think the star shape is especially nice for Christmas morning. Maybe I’ll even make them for my Mom. ;D

How to Make Them

  1. Start by heating your oil to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
  2. Pop your dough tube and seperate out all of the little biscuits.
  3. Use a small cookie-cutter to cut a shape (I like the stars myself,) out of the center of the biscuit.
  4. Drop the dough into the oil and fry for about 2 min or until golden brown.
  5. Drain on a wire rack over paper towel.Toppings: If you like cinnamon sugar, dredge doughnuts in a mixture of cinnamon sugar right out of the oil. (The residual oil helps it stick.) You could do the same with powdered sugar. For a super-easy glaze, just heat up some vanilla frosting in the microwave until soupy, and dip doughnuts. Let drain on wire rack until cool.
