If necessary, 2 or 3 more tablespoons of flour may be added.

Press each slice with palm to flatten.
Let rest 10 minutes, and then roll slices out with a rolling pin until they are ovals about 6X3 inches.

Cover the bottom of a skillet with a thin coat of oil.
Heat oil, and fry doughboys over medium heat until golden brown on both sides.
