Fifteen years ago my dad remarried to a woman with Native American roots. Every time we visit she always makes this special Traditional Indian Fry Bread. To put it lightly… I’m obsessed! After all this time, I finally asked her to teach me how to make it. She didn’t share with me the “from scratch” recipe, but the next best thing! An easy rendition of the Fry Bread. I made sure to get permission to post this.. so I’m not in the dog house for Thanksgiving. ha!
I love how crisp the outside is, and yet the inside is chewy and mouth-watering! The color is amazing too, so it really adds a golden touch to a dinner plate. These are so easy, and yet soooo delicious! They can be matched with so many options as well… Butter, jams, tacos, soups, pasta, etc. The possibilities to add these beauties to a meal are endless.
