  • Recipes: Fried Honey Buns

    We’ve talked about it for 2 weeks, so we decided it was time to put a marker down.  Here’s the recipe for the greatest breakfast snack of all time – fried Honey Buns.

Get your bacon grease hot, add in the honey buns (unwrapped), cook for about 90 seconds per side.  Serve warm.…
