Fried Biscuits


  • Refrigerated biscuits (such as Pillsbury)
  • Oil for frying
  • Sugar


1. Fill electric skillet 3/4 full with oil; heat to 400 degrees. (You could also use a deep fryer, but mine takes over a gallon of oil, so I stick with the shallow electric skillet.)

2. Carefully drop biscuits into hot oil, adding no more than 6 or so at one time. Fry for about a minute, or until nicely browned on the underside.

3. Using a slotted spatula, gently turn each biscuit to the other side. Fry for another minute or so, until second side of biscuit is nicely browned.

4. Transfer to a plate lined with paper towels; allow to cool slightly.

5. Roll warm biscuits in granulated sugar till evenly coated.

6. Serve while warm. Enjoy!

  1. This brings back so many memories! My sister and I loved frying up biscuits and turning them into doughnuts. We would use a bottle cap to cut the hole in the center. The donut holes were always my favorite!

    1. I love the donut holes, too! We sometimes use the cap from a syrup bottle to cut the holes.
      Thanks for stopping by!

  2. My mom used to make these when we were kids. We loved them! Dad still brings canned biscuits home every once in a while for doughnuts. 🙂

    1. A few years ago, I was able to get biscuits for free with a promotion at a local grocery store. We ended up with well over ONE HUNDRED cans of biscuits!! We enjoyed a LOT of donuts those days. 🙂
      Thanks so much for taking time to comment!
