Fry Bread

Fry Bread

2 cups flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup milk
oil for frying

In large bowl, combine flour, baking powder, and salt.  Mix well.  Add milk.  Mix well.  If the dough is dry, add more milk.  On a floured surface, knead dough until smooth.  Let rest at least 5 minutes.  Break off 1/2 cup size ball of dough.  Roll into a round disk, 1/4 inch thick with the center slightly thinner. If you are really good, you can toss it around like a pizza crust to make the disk.  This lady was amazing!  She made perfect disks every time. 

Heat oil or lard if you are making it the traditional Navajo way, over medium high heat. 

Fry until golden brown, turning it only once as it cooks.  Drain on paper towel.

We had a fundraiser at the Passion Radio Network last week.  My husband and I host the lunch time show at the radio station.  We had so much fun meeting listeners and eating Navajo Tacos.

Navajo Tacos are made with fry bread.  

On top of the fry bread you add beans with beef 

and all of your favorite taco toppings.

A new lunch item for me was the Navajo Burger.  
You top the fry bread with grilled beef patties

and anything that you would normally put on a burger.

  It was so good!  But you better be hungry because it is really big!

My new cookbook is available at schools, businesses, hospitals, and book fairs in cities across the United States.  Be sure to pick up a copy or two, when you see them.  They make great gifts!

  1. I love fry bread, but I have never found a recipe for it. I will have to try this out with some beef, beans and green chile. Thanks for posting this!
