Cheater Beignets

Beignets have been easier than with Rhodes Bake N Serv Rolls!

A couple of years ago my husband and I went on a cruise with some friends. One of the restaurants on the ship served the most delicious beignets that I would order almost every morning. Don't judge. Not sure what a beignet is? "Beignet, synonymous with the English "fritter", is the French term for a pastry made from deep-fried choux pastry. Beignets can also be made from other types of dough, including yeast dough." They are SO delicious and the powdered sugar is what makes them. I've been wanting to make some at home ever since our vacation, but didn't have or want to spend the time making them from scratch. 

[Insert Rhodes Bake N Serv here]. Don't you LOVE how Rhodes makes our lives so much easier? I'm telling you. I've been making recipes regularly for this blog for gosh what has it been? Four? Five years now? I haven't once duplicated a recipe that I've made - that's a LOT of different things you can do! What are some of your favorite Rhodes recipes? I'm certain that if you make these simple beignets they will surely make the list. With the simplicity of them you *may* get mad at me for sharing this with you... as you'll find yourself wanting to make them all the time [like myself]. Leave a comment and let me know if you try them!
