Fried Scones

You can do so many things with fried scones...and they are all soooo delish! We always ate these in our home growing up. I would want to skip the "meal" part and go straight to the dessert, but my mom found some great ways to make the "meal" seem more appealing! Our favorite versions of scones are Pizza, Indian Tacos, Sloppy Joes, and Dessert.

Fried Scones

12 rhodes frozen rolls, thawed
6 cups vegetable oil

Toppings for Pizza:
alfredo or tomato sauce
canadian bacon
shredded chicken

Toppings for Indian Tacos:
taco meat
taco sauce

Toppings for Sloppy Joes:
Sloppy joe meat and sauce, THIS is a great recipe

Toppings for Dessert:
Cinnamon and Sugar
Powdered Sugar

Flatten each of the 12 rolls into a 1/4" thick circle, trying your best to have them even thickness all of the way through.
In a large saute pan or deep fryer, heat the 6 cups of oil to 360 degrees F. (I am not big into having the perfect temperature. What I do to test my oil is take a tiny piece of store-bought bread and drop it into the oil. If the bread absorbs the oil, it is not hot enough. It should sizzle and brown quickly if it is the perfect temperature.)
Slip the rounds one at a time into the hot oil, being careful not to splatter yourself. Cook for about 1 minute on each side, or until a golden brown, then turn and finish cooking. Drain on paper towels and repeat with remaining dough.
Add toppings to fry bread and enjoy! If making pizza, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Add toppings and bake for 10 minutes or until cheese is melted.

Makes 12 Scones.
