Happy New Year 2014 my friends!! 2013 seemed like it zoomed right by but they that tends to happy when you get older. Our 2013 was full of new things as first time parents and we enjoyed learning and growing like our little guy.
One of our favorite ways to ring in the New Year is filling ourselves full of fried things. Because isn’t that what resolutions are for? Plus I needed to break in my new deep fryer. Our menu was packed with fried pickles, chicken tenders and Oreos. The last of them being the best part. They are rather simple to make and even more enjoyable to eat.
This recipe really is just a starting off point based on how many Oreos you want to fry. For this like shindig we only made 6.
1 1/2 cups bisquick pancake batter
Powdered sugar, optional
In medium size bowl add bisquick pancake batter.
Add water until batter is a heavy thick consistency (you want it to be thick so it sticks on the Oreos nicely).
Place Oreos in the batter and coat them completely.
Fill deep fryer to fill line and heat oil to 350 degrees.
Drop Oreos into hot oil. I do not use the basket for these as the batter sticks to the basket.
Fry for approx. a minute. You will notice the batter turning golden brown. Flip Oreos over and repeat.
Remove Oreos from grease and place on plate or serving dish. Sprinkle with powdered sugar while hot.
The New Year always has us listing out things we want to change or get better at or accomplish. I myself have a few things.
1.) Cook more from scratch. I often did myself cheating with hamburger helper or a soup mix because I’m in a rush.
2.) Limiting dining out for special occasions and not just as a convienence.
3.) More produce.
4.) Make a pot rack and buffet table.
5.) Take little man to do more since he’s more mobile now.
6.) Take it all in.
Now it’s time to go enjoy some of those peas I’ve been smelling all day.
