  • Mix dry ingredients, excluding yeast, in a large bowl. Mix warm water with powdered milk. Add milk mixture to dry ingredients. Add eggs and melted butter. Mix well. Add dry yeast, mix all ingredients well.
  • Knead dough until it has a good consistency and form into a ball. Grease a large bowl and put ball of dough into the center. Let the dough rise to the top of the bowl, about 30-60 minutes. Punch down dough and allow rising once again to the top of the bowl.
  • Then, using an electric skillet or large frying pan, heat enough vegetable oil to cook several disks of dough at once. Let oil heat to 160-180 degrees Fahrenheit. To test to see if the oil is hot enough, put a little piece of dough in the oil. If it sizzles and begins to brown, the oil is ready.
  • From the large bowl of dough, pull a small piece off and form into a small ball. Flatten the ball into a disk, about ½ inch thick and 4 inches in diameter. Punch a small hole in the center of the disk and put gently into the hot oil. Cook until browned on one side, then turn over. When both sides are golden brown, drain the bread on paper towels.


This is a (mostly) traditional Native American recipe. Fry bread can be eaten a variety of ways. Some of my favorites: -used as a taco shell -topped with honey or jam -topped with chili and cheese -covered with cinnamon and sugar -covered with powdered sugar Whatever you'd like to try!
