Ingredients

Steps

  • 1
    In deep fryer or deep saucepan, heat oil to 350°F.
  • 2
    Separate dough into 8 biscuits. Cut each biscuit in half; roll out each to form 2-inch round.
  • 3
    Place 1 heaping teaspoon pulled pork in center of each dough round (do not overfill). Gently wrap dough around pork; pinch edges to seal securely.
  • 4
    In medium bowl, stir together cornbread mix, water and egg until batter is smooth and of pancake batter consistency. Dip each filled dough ball into batter; let excess drip off.
  • 5
    Fry 1 or 2 balls at a time in hot oil, turning until all sides are golden brown. Drain on paper towels; cool.
  • 6
    Serve with your favorite barbecue sauce for dipping.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Add in a dash of ground red pepper (cayenne) for some heat.
  • tip 2
    Serve them with some ranch dressing for dipping as well as barbecue sauce!
  • tip 3
    For an even quicker “bomb,” try Pillsbury™ refrigerated corn biscuits and skip step 3.
