I have seen these little orange wheels in the grocery store for years but never really knew what they were. I bought some today after seeing a foodnetwork show. Wow! They are delicious. Put some oil in a skillet and drop them in. When the float to the top and turn brown they are done. About five seconds. You can't put them in the oil one at a time, the first ones will burn before you get it out. I put a handfull in at one time. A little salt or sprinkle with cinnamon sugar. And the best part? The produce bag I filled up cost me $.78 cents. I used safflower oil but any oil you use to fry is okay. Google says:
