Default Boat - Fried Dough

OK its Fair Season and wanna try to make it myself. What kind of dough? Is the frozen pizza dough OK? Don't want to make from scratch.I have a small electric fryer pan. What is a good oil to use and what temp?

Figure you Southern guys are the Southern fried stuff experts!

My wife makes dough for homemade rolls using a mixer. Recipe comes out of Betty Crocker cookbook.

Lets dough sit to rise then fries it up in canola oil until golden brown. Put on butter while hot and then use powdered sugar and cinnamon. Puts most doughnuts to shame.

Like Pillsbury ??? Isn't that more for cinnamon bun stuff?

Hey if it is easy I'll try it! The fried dough at the fair is like flat cakes or small pizza- It's like greasy and fluffy but delicious.... See here.... pics on right https://www.google.com/search?q=frie...hrome&ie=UTF-8

So do you flatten this canned bread dough?

apparently you need to be asking the northern neighbors
the canned biscuits are not yeast based so it will be totally different

Yep maybe. We just found the pizza dough in the canned biscuit container so we are going to try both today.

Thanks to all

We call them wopp biscuits. Wopp the can of biscuits on the counter, cut them into quarters, fry and shake powdered sugar over them.

Funnel cakes and zeppoli's are the same ingredients, different shape. Not sure what dough is used though, but I believe they are fried in canola oil.

Rhodes frozen dough is good if you don't feel like making your own. Place a frozen loaf in a plastic bag and let it rise on the counter overnight. In the morning heat a couple of inches of oil to 375. Cut off a piece of dough and gently stretch it into a disc. Place in oil and fry both sides until golden brown. Apply butter, salt and enjoy.

In a pinch you can get pizza dough at the bakery section of the grocery store and cut it in pieces, make sure it is at room temperature before frying. After pulling them out of the oil, drop zeppoles in a brown paper bag with powdered sugar and give them a good shake. Any other way and you're doing it wrong...

OK tried the canned biscuits and pizza dough. Loved them both. The biscuits were a bit too sweet for my diabetic old body but we finally did it! Gonna experiment next time with more types of dough and maybe use our older fryer which can get a bit hotter. We used some automatic thing called a cool daddy max temp was 375 and it was real clean and easy to use. Basket cover and all in one unit. Still gonna try the fry pan next time.

As good as at the fair but without the dust and crowds and admission fee!

How about a Mexican themed carnival and churros?

Predominantly funnel cakes around here with either powdered sugar or a fruit compote.

Also used peanut oil. Do other oils change the taste or anything. Kinda looking forward to frying other stuff. I hate chicken and (except from KFC) don't much care for fish either - this may be the solution

Why would the biscuts be too sweet, they do not have sugar in the cans

people that do not care for fish must not have eaten good fresh well cared for fish
there is always shrimp, oysters, & cab rolls along with hush puppies, tots,French frys and loads of other stuff to fry up
