These are a specialty that shows up only during Lent. That’s the only time you’ll see them served in restaurants but in my house, they show up frequently.

This is the version I had for Thanksgiving.

1. Separate eggs and beat egg whites until stiff, add in egg yolks, flour and salt, beat together.

2. Heat 1-inch of shortening in a heavy pan on medium-high heat. Drop mixture by tablespoonful into hot shortening. Fry until golden brown on both sides. Drain on absorbent towels and add to chile sauce.
