And they tasted pretty good, too--if you happened to get one that wasn't raw in the middle. I took the first bite and "bleh--goopy!"
Usually I don't use vegetable oil, but that's all I had this time. Maybe that had something to do with it. But they were overbrowning almost as soon as they hit the oil, let alone what they would be like if I let them sit there for 2 minutes. Thankfully, enough made the "cooked enough to be edible" grade, so all was not lost. And the preparation was fun. I was too busy with the hot oil to take a photo of J patting, rolling, cutting, and hole-ing, but you can imagine what a blast that was for a 6 year old.
I guess it's a lesson in being prepared. Now I'll have to keep orange peel and/or buttermilk in the freezer so as not to have to experiment again.
