Easy Touchdown Donuts using Biscuit Dough

Superbowl breakfast…. in less than 10 minutes!
It really cannot get easier than this.
In fact, I’m not even giving you a recipe.
Just a list of ingredients and a few photos.
And, uh… go team!


  • canned biscuit dough
  • oil for frying– fill pan up to about inch high, and heat on medium (no higher)
  • canned chocolate frosting, melted (30-60 seconds in the microwave)
  • white chocolate melting discs (melted) for piping
Pinch the ends of the biscuit dough to make a football shape(ish):

When the oil is ready for frying (you’ll know because a few drops of water will make it bubble), drop the dough into the pan. They’ll brown pretty quickly, so don’t go far!
Remove the donuts from the oil and sit on a few layers of paper towels to dry and cool.
Dip the donuts in the melted chocolate frosting.
Pipe on the stitches with melted white chocolate– you can use a piping bag with a tip, or even just a zip top bag with a teensy-tiny corner snipped off.
…and if football’s not your thing, maybe pretty sprinkles are:
