Savoury doughnuts make a quick and hot snack and an ideal accompaniment to drinks before a meal served with a favourite savoury dip or as a finger buffet item. The flavour and texture of a savoury doughnut is improved by the brushing or spraying of the doughnut holes lightly with oil before each batch of donuts is made,. The quantity of filling to add varies according to taste so try these variations for practice and adjust as to your own palate as you get used to making them.
