Do you like Donuts, too...?

 I know this doesn't look like your average  donut...'s split...
buttered (only a bit) on both sides...
 then pan fried in my new RED skillet...
the one you see on TV...
boy, I am lovin' it.
 here's that new tureen I scored at the thrift store...

 I like my donut fried to a deep golden brown..

I never have learned
 what all these initials mean....
and I'm scared to ask...
some things are better left alone...

what I don't know won't hurt me...

I would marry it if I could.

sooo. on a Sunday morning, fry up a few of these...
a little ham slice won't hurt anything, either...

and fruit...

don't forget fruit.

  1. Oh my goodness! I have never heard of frying a donut like that but it sounds like the ultimate, decadent way to enjoy one! Love that tureen, what a great find :)

  2. Never heard of frying a doughnut, but I used to stop at a coffee bar (actually the lunch bar in Woolworths) on the way home from school once a week and get a toasted danish and hot chocolate. I wonder if this would taste similar????

    God bless.

  3. My Mom just bought one of those pans! Maybe she will fry me a doughnut!! YUM~

  4. Bj, actually I don't like donuts. We have not donuts like yours in Italy, but I tasted them when I was in US for holidays.
    Btw I've never tasted a fried one; maybe I like it...who knows.
    Thanks for sharing.
    Have a nice day

  5. Pan-fried donuts? Oh, that is TOO decadent!

  6. I like just the plain ole glazed donuts. Never heard of doing one like this. No doubt, you were born with a creative, cooking brain.

  7. Yum. Did I say Yum? Yes, YUM! I don't know what all those letters mean either. Maybe nothing? Have a great week!

  8. Bj I try to stay away from anything fried or has sugar in it, so please eat one for me. Have a blessed day. Madeline

  9. I learn something from you every time I visit! A fried donut, who would have thought!??

  10. Your donut looks heavenly...I want one! And you answered my question about the red copper frying it works great, huh? I saw them at Wally World and wondered if it was an account...I just may have to get me one now :)

  11. Love your new tureen and the doughnut. I've had a doughnut craving for the last little while and you may have pushed me over the edge.

  12. Oh hubby would have LOVED your method of doctoring up a "dodo", as the grandkidlets called them. He ate one every single morning with his coffee. I haven't bought any since he died. :(

    I can help you a little with those letters on your cup.

  13. We had donuts with the kids this past Friday. Are your donuts homemade and then you fry them, or do you just fry up the ones you buy? I just bought a new skillet on Friday. Wish I had seen the red skillet first.

  14. Well, I never thought about splitting and browning my donuts! Not that I eat one often but the next time Louis Dean sneaks some in the house, I will NOT turn a blind eye but ask him to fork one over to ME!
    We have a red copper skillet too and just love it!!

  15. BJ, you always have some of the most creative recipes! I always see the commercials for that pan and often wondered if they really work. You've just answered my question!

  16. Sounds and looks delish! My daughter loves lime green too :)

  17. oh how I love doughnuts. Ive never thought about slicing them and frying them. Sounds delicious! I like homemade doughnuts too. Love your thrift store find. I love searching for little treasures at thrift stores.

  18. I love a donut once in awhile. That looks really good. Such a great thrifty find, too. Have a good week.

  19. Next time our daughter brings donuts over, I may just try that. They look really good.
    Love your choice of fruit too.

  20. If someone tells me they don't like doughnuts, I start to suspect they are a robot. And I've seen the Terminator

  21. Hello bj, YES, I do love donuts, ham and fruit. Yum. Your photos are always inspiring. I mean it.

    We have also been to Portland a long time ago. It was for a National Jaycee Convention. Bill was a Jaycee. It was a wonderful time and Portland is beautiful. We went up on Mt. Hood. It was May and there was still lots of snow. Our son has worked in Portland for a few years but he comm
    uted from TN. It is hard and he and his wife have decided to move. He would work two weeks and come home for two weeks. They are very tired of the separation. First they must sell their home in TN.

    Have a wonderful week my dear sister friend. Something else in common. Our sons work in Portland. Smile.

  22. Oops, your grandson! Silly me.
    Jeanne, again.

  23. Oooh, I LOVE donuts and eating them your way sounds SO good! I'll have to try it!

  24. BJ,
    Looks yummy!!
    Thanks so much for stopping by!!


  25. Lovely set of images. And yes, what's not to like about donuts? Nothing, that's what. Have a blessed week.

  26. bj, As if donuts aren't calling to me from all the world already (yes, a real weakness for me!!), now I see that they can be fried??!! Oh my!! I have never done that, but my mother used to fry bologna till crispy, then salt it. She is now 93 and living on her own (with lots of help from me and my sister, but still in her own house, cooking and cleaning!), so maybe there's nothing to worry about! Ok, I've convinced myself that I can try frying donuts now. Thank you!!! Linda :)

  27. Wow...a new way to try a donut. I love them but rarely eat one. May try this though!

  28. I have never tried a donut that way, bj, but you've certainly inspired me to do it!!

  29. I have never split a donut in half, but I will often warm them in the toaster oven (on the bake setting at 350) for a couple of minutes. They come out tasting bakery shop fresh. Like you, I am crazy about lime green!

  30. Wait, wait, fry a donut split in half in a little butter? Oh my. Sounds pretty good and, if you say so...

  31. That beautiful tureen is quite the socre!

  32. Looks yummy. I bought a mini donut maker and can't quit trying new recipes now.
    And yes, Melania will make a lovely first Lady!

  33. Don't forget the fruit, LOL! Now that sounds like a mighty fine idea donuts and ham....with fruit of course!!

  34. Ooh, love me some fried donuts! Can biscuits work well too! (LOL) just saying...easy road out. You scored good on that soup tureen. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  35. looks and sounds so yummy. you are an awesome food photographer!!!!
