Native American Fry Bread Recipe. This bread has been sustaining Americans for centuries. The simple recipe has been handed down through the generations and is now served in upscale restaurants. This recipe is so simple we often make it when we car camp in Great Smoky Mountains National Park. There is nothing better than enjoying a campfire alongside a gurgling mountain stream while the smell of fresh bread fills the air.
This bread is perfect with a variety of toppings. Some of our favorites are pinto beans and fresh onions, beef stew, and bar-b-q. If you like to keep it simple try it with cheese or just plain with some good olive oil to dip it in. There are limitless options to top your bread so be sure and tell us your favorite. Send us some pics of your fry bread and what you topped it with and we may post them on our social media.
2 Cups of oil
4 Cups all-purpose flour
3 Tablespoons baking powder
2 Tablespoons salt
2 1/2 Cups warm milk
In your favorite cast iron skillet heat 1 inch of vegetable oil or lard to 365 degrees.
Combine flour, salt, baking powder and milk. Mix well. When the dough begins to come together form it into small balls. Place balls on parchment paper. Oil your hand and pat the balls until flat.
Depending on the size of your skillet place up to 3 or 4 balls into the oil at a time. Watch for them to begin to bubble and then flip them over with tongs or a big fork. Fry until golden. Drain on a cooling rack lined with paper towels and serve HOT!
