Bigfoot Tutorial

I mentioned that a family favorite is Bigfoots which we made during our recent camping trip. I thought I'd give you a little tutorial as they are soooo easy to make and soooo yummy!

First of all you need to thaw some frozen bread dough. We usually eat these for breakfast sot I put it out the night before and its ready in the morning. If you've never used frozen bread dough for anything other than bread then just spray a cake pan with Pam, put the frozen dough in it, then get a piece of plastic wrap, spray with Pam and put it over the top. I used two loaves this weekend and that made about 20 Bigfoots. It will look something like this in the morning.
Next flour your board, counter, table or wherever you want to roll them out. We used a clean tablecloth on the picnic table. Pull a piece of dough off and roll flat. If you like the edges a little crispy, then roll them quite thin, but if you like them a little doughy, then leave them a little thicker. You can just experiment the first time you do it.

Now put some oil in a large pan--about an inch or so. I usually use my electric skillet at about 350. It can hold about two at a time. For camping we used a skillet over the camp stove. Put the rolled out dough in the pan in a single layer. They cook up rather quickly so I stay right with the pan. Using a pair of tongs, turn them over when they brown up. When they are done put on a cookie sheet covered with paper towel to drain some of the grease.
And now you're ready to frost them. We use canned frosting for camping, but I usually make my own at home. You can also toss them in some cinnamon and sugar instead.
Eat and enjoy!!
