Mini fry bread

IMG_7917

I felt very Little House on the Prairie (or possibly something out of the Grapes of Wrath) this morning as I made my first attempt at making fry bread.
The dough is incredibly simple and I adapted a recipe I found here.

The dough is really sticky so I flattened each piece out with some flour.

My first few attempts turned out awful. I didn’t have the oil hot enough and then it got too hot.
But on the fifth try it started to come together.

The dough doesn’t have much flavor on its own which is probably why people sprinkle them with cinnamon sugar.
How did I eat them? Topped with homemade hummus and cucumber slices, of course!

The fry bread turned out wonderful, crunchy on the outside and light and airy in the middle.
And my homemade hummus tastes even better the second day Smile

Happy Thursday everyone!

  3. Oh I haven't had fry bread in so long - and usually I go the sweet route with it. But I love your savory hummus and cucumber version better =)
