Biscuit Sopapillas with Mozzarella Scrambled Eggs

My granddaughter is spendin' the weekend and when she's here I always fix foods I know she likes. She loves sopapillas and this mornin' I was going to fix them for breakfast but we kinda stayed up late the night before and so we kinda slept in. When we woke up she was starved so I fixed a shortcut sopapilla. They are really very good and a lot quicker then homemade.

You start with a can of biscuits. Just plain store bought canned biscuits. Open them up and on a piece of waxed paper mash them flat. Just use the heel of your hand and mash them bad boys down flat.

Heat canola oil in a deep pan or deep fryer, which I'm thinkin' about buyin' (any suggestions on what type is good) heat to about 300 to 325 degrees. Put 2-3 biscuits in hot oil and fry til golden brown 1-2 minutes. Flip over carefully and fry till golden brown 2-3 minutes on opposite side.

Carefully remove from hot oil and place on paper towel lined plate to drain.

Don't these look good and it took me about 15 minutes to fry a can of 10 biscuits. Oh, there's only eight on this plate. I wonder what happened to the other two?

Now let's fix some honey butter to go on these little pieces of fried dough.

To 4 tablespoons softened butter I added 1 tablespoon honey and blended well. Just taste to see if it tastes sweet enough for you, if not add a little more honey.

Okay so while I was frying the sopapillas I added 4 eggs to small bowl and added 4 shakes of the salt shaker and one good twist of the pepper mill and 2 tablespoons of cream. I also added some chopped ham to give flavor. Just use whatever amount you want in your eggs.

Pour the beaten eggs into a heated iron skillet to which 2 teaspoons canola oil was added. If you heat the skillet well before you cook eggs in it they won't stick.

Cook over medium heat till almost cooked through and then chunk some mozzarella cheese on top of the eggs. I used about 2 ounces of cheese. (it's just a personal preference on the amount of cheese you want to use)

Don't stir just put a lid on top of skillet and turn heat down low.

I know the cheese looks like mini marshmallows but it really is mozzarela cheese.

Check after a couple of minutes to see if cheese is melting, you may need to cover for a couple of minutes more. If the eggs seem firm you may want to turn heat off put lid back on to finish melting cheese.

When the cheese is melted serve with the sopapillas and honey butter.

Yum-Yum, sopapillas that are quick and easy. Fix these for your kids and see how quickly they disappear.

Yum... fried dough! You always make such unique things. A deep fryer will make this so much easier and you'll find foods cook much faster and much lighter with less grease. You already know the one I like :)

These look great and that's great they're so easy to make! Have you ever experimented with other toppings besides the honey butter? I ate a sopapilla once that had a glaze sauce on it and it was yummy!
