I love breakfast. I love breakfast so much that I tend to go off the beaten track and do things that I think might be some really great twists on some classics. My nan always made great fried dough. When I was younger, she always used to do it up some some eggs and Bacon on the side. I think that’s why when I think of “fried” dough, I always think of breakfast..
1 bag pizza dough
1 cup Chunky Peanut butter
1 cup jam or jelly
1 cup chopped or crushed cashews
Powder sugar for dusting
In a deep fryer, preheat oil to 350. ( if you don’t have a home deep fryer, use preheat a large pot and add vegetable oil half way up the pan. Use a thermometer to make sure oil is exactly at 350) Roll about 12 golf ball size pieces of dough. Stretch each piece with your hands till flat like your stretching a pizza. Drop 3 at a time and cook for 3 mins. Remove and drain on paper towel. In the microwave, melt peanut butter in a bowl on high for 1 min and stir. Do the same thing for the Jelly. Drizzle both on each piece of dough. Sprinkle on chopped cashews and powdered sugar and serve.
Cooking time: 12 mins for entire batch
