Deep fried biscuits with honey butter are a rare treat for me, but I love them as much as ever. They’re very easy to make, and you can put just about anything on them. This time I went the sweet route, drizzling the biscuits with a homemade honey butter mix.
My mom would deep fry biscuits for breakfast for me when I was kid. It was a rare treat, and one I always looked forward to. I loved the crunchy exterior and soft pillowy (it’s unlikely that I used the term ‘pillowy’ as a kid, though) interior of deep fried biscuits with honey butter. Sometimes I would eat them with just butter, and lots of it. That’s probably when my butter addiction started, come to think of it.
If I’m cooking for a crowd, I’ll break out my big deep fryer. But, if it’s just the two of us, I’ll fire up my Fry Daddy fryer. It’s the perfect size for both of us. It fries everything perfectly. And as an added bonus, it doesn’t use a lot of oil, which saves me money.
Black pepper honey is also great on these biscuits. Or, skip the honey butter and dust these little beauties with powdered sugar for fantastic breakfast ‘donuts’.
