Beignets are square donuts. They are easy to make and a huge hit in camp. They do require a bit of prep.



11⁄2 cups lukewarm water
1⁄2 cup granulated sugar
1 envelope active dry yeast
2 eggs, slightly beaten
11⁄4 teaspoons salt
1 cup evaporated milk 7 cups bread flour
1⁄4 cup shortening Nonstick spray Oil, for deep-frying
3 cups confectionersí sugar

Beignets

Mix water, sugar, and yeast in a large bowl and let sit for 10 minutes.

In another bowl, beat the eggs, salt and evaporated milk together. Mix egg mixture to the yeast mixture. In a separate bowl, measure out the bread our. Add 3 cups of the flour to the yeast mixture and stir to combine. Add the shortening and continue to stir while add- ing the remaining flour. Remove dough from the bowl, place onto a lightly oured surface and knead until smooth. Spray a large bowl with nonstick spray. Put dough into the bowl and cover with plastic wrap or a towel. Let rise in a warm place for at least 2 hours.

You can refrigerate the dough overnight and then let it warm up to near room temp the next morning.

Preheat oil in a dutch oven to 350 degrees F.

Roll the dough out to about 1⁄4-inch thickness and cut into 1-inch squares. Deep-fry, flippling constantly, until they become a golden color. After beignets are fried, drain them for a few seconds on paper towels, and serve hot. The

I put a bowl of confection sugar out so people can dip them in it. I also put a out honey.

Makes enough for 12+.

Looks good Trapper.
That was my breakfast many a morning on my way out of the French Quarter. Shhh
In New Mexico a savory version is served filled with meat, cheese and sauce. (Red or green)

A cheater way is use tube pizza dough. Cut wharever shape you want and fry them golden. Dust with powdered sugar for beignets. Shake in sugar cinnamon mix for bear sign.

Beignets under a handful of powdered sugar and chicory cafe' latte at Du Monde in the French Quarter is a fond memory for me. I'll give 'em a shot and see how close I can come. Worship

Aggroman, come up to Montana where there's currently no flooding, and I'll make you a batch of beignets.

We will be travelling East to West, heading South at Bozeman. 2 days in Yellowstone, then south to Bryce and Zion. Maybe next year. Sad

All of my older recipes are on another hard drive, but most any sopapillas recipe will work. Just leave out the sugars. The sopapilla is just a container for anything you have on hand.
These are authentic, scroll down to #7
