Elephant Ears


I don't know if I have mentioned my obsession with duplicating fast food taste with out fast food money or fast food lack of nurtition... but this would be a big deal in my house. I HATE fast food places, but we tend to go there once a month or so just because my family loves the terrible food (I usually get a salad and fries). But every time we go I marvel at how bad the food is, how terribly it is made and I won't even get into the sources that they get their meat from. YUCK! Anyway... so I have a good time trying to make things that make my children say things like "Oooo... just like at the Fair." or something like that and I really enjoy when I succeed. Here is my version of Fair Food... Elephant Ears. The only time ever that I buy those pop can buiskets, but they are perfect for this. Just roll the buiskets flat and drop into a pan of about 1/2 inch veggie or canola oil and when they come out add cinnamon and sugar and perhaps a little butter. They are good, cheap and not completely terrible for you. ;)

I feel the same way about fast food. Those look really good!

Thanks... they were gone in a matter of hours though... YIKES! My kids could suck down fast food with the best of them. At least I know there wasn't any hydro oils or anything in them. lol...

Yep, thats what I do with those biscuits too! For some reason, frying them transforms them into something quite nice! Yum!
